Gordon Lightfoot recorded a song on his first album entitled " Pride Of Man ", written by H. Camp. I'm not sure if any other Lightfoot fans have noticed but the lyrics hauntingly echo the events of 9/11 and the situation the world and the U.S. now finds themselves. I urge you all to give it a carefull listen to ...it gave me goosebumps!

Does anyone know more about the writer H. Camp?

Rick,
I believe this was noted and mentioned around the time of 9/11. Perhaps John can track the thread for you

I just found this site so sorry if I'm bringing up an old topic . I just find it amazing that Lightfoot recorded this song which is unfortnately more revelant today than it was in 67.

Rick,
no problem. We often bring up old topics.

Well All Right Bruna if you insist but first simple question. Is it a trait for all blondies to have such short memories? I thought at first that I was seeing double but an extremely short search here back as far as June the 26th revealed that Lily then had exactly the same thoughts and created a topic that was finally answered when Val quoted her Hamilton Camp site's address.see:- http://www.corfid.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/000796.html
I am however pleased to help out on this occasion

RickC: Please visit Hamilton Camp's new official web site at hamiltoncamp.com . I won't repeat what I said in the earlier thread, which John F kindly referenced, but I think the site will tell you a lot about him. He's a singer/songwriter and an actor, and has quite a long list of credits in both disciplines. He is still writing and recording, with a CD in 1999 and a new one in the works.

And I think people will be saying the same thing in 2054 and 3004, and probably were voicing similar thoughts in 1492. Very powerful song covered by our # 1 singer.
