Default Re: The first time I ever heard Gordon Lightfoot

My ‘first time’ was ( if I recall correctly...) late 1971 when a good friend’s sister was working in the USA.
She was in Los Angeles and sent her brother a pre-recorded cassette of GL’s ‘Summer Side of Life’.
He lent it to me and I was immediately taken with the songs. I’d never heard anything like it in England.
I bought the LP, which I still own. Little did I know how it would set me on a long road, which ended up at the Massey Hall in Toronto.
Even after all this time, ‘Love and Maple Syrup’ is one of my favourite Lightfoot songs.
