I just came back from Tower Records and bought Jim Croce's "Facets" the album which has his cover of "Steel Rail Blues." It was reissued this year. Also I bought "Home Recordings." I love this unreleased stuff. I checked in the Gord section. I saw no sign of "Harmony" yet. Also I saw "Sunday Concert" in the CD's. Did the original have lots of photos on the back of the album jacket? It was only $6.99 for the CD. It had cool pics of Gord and one was him playing a classical guitar with a little kid next to him.

Endless Wire,yes the original Sunday Concert LP,issued in 1969,had all of those photos on the back of the outer-sleeve. In the 50's and 60s that was a standard practice for record companies. I think they did these kinds of photos,not just for GL,but other artists because they really didn't know what to put on the back besides the song list. I think that's one of his kids in the photo! Not sure.


Good thing someone thought of it,I have LPs from before the 70s and before the 60s and some of them have long paragraphs on the back that are either a review of the artist in general or a story about the artist (which doesn't tell you something you don't know already) or just a ton of Acknowlegements,which give notice to the people involved in the making of the album.


You should get that CD! That is a grat deal,as far as Tower Records goes. They usually have the most GL over anyone! You might want to stop looking for Harmony any earlier than May 11th. When a release date is finally set in stone,it doesn't change. Besides,it's only 15 days away! Patience,grasshopper! In the meantime,click the Harmony mention at the start of the site,it has a photo there now! Kind of reminds me of the back cover photo of,"Salute!" It's been me,Aurevoir!

I would have bought it but I already have the Sunday Concert on the Acoustic Highway series label. I would like to find the Bear Family CD, only one of the bonus tracks I have "Just Like Tom Thumb's blues."

The Bear Family version is available at Amazon.com and, I'm sure, elsewhere.

Actually, B, release dates change all the time - even those set in stone - but since they usually get pushed back, not forward, your advice not to look for it prior to May 11 was sound advice.

This may sound dumb, but WHY do they call it 'Bear family'?

Bye now.

DMD3, They call it Bear Family for the same reason they call Sony, Sony or a zebra, a zebra - that's it's name. Why the founders chose to call their company Bear Family really doesn't matter

DMD 3,In my opinion they called it Bear Family because bears are a close knit family in the animal kingdom and also because it was named that in the 1970's,kind of like John Denver calling his personal label,"Windsong" or the Beatles calling theirs "Apple". A lot of the back to nature sort of thing that was going on back then. I'm sure that's the answer. Aurevoir!

Three bears are walking single file. Which one is the warmest?

I'd have to guess that the front one is the warmest. He's working the hardest. The other two are drafting off him.

It's the last one. He doesn't have a bear behind.
