And I have a new favorite Gordon Lightfoot album. It's as good as everyone's been saying.

Excellent Cd isn't it? What really makes it special is how it was made. What a guy! Any favorites Walt?

I really liked Sometimes I Wish and River of Light (this week anyway).

I popped in Harmony again to see if I'd changed my mind on my favorites and, yessiree, I did: I find that with each listening, my enjoyment increases -- always a good thing when it's Gord! My favorites: River of Light, No Mistake About It, The No Hotel, Inspiration Lady (has everyone seen the video at Linus Entertainment?), Clouds of Loneliness, and Sometimes I Wish. I certainly hope another album is in the making. Am I asking for too much??

Beautiful songs, Debs, but the enigmatic Shellfish still haunts me. River of Light was my original fave but after all these weeks, I still cant name an overall favourite. Surely that is the sign of a real classic collection!

Shellfish is a catchy tune, isn't it? It's one of those songs that just kind of creeps up on you. I find myself humming it when I least expect it.
It was my favorite of the three new ones he was singing in concert, before he got sick. I hope he continues to perform it.

You're right, Cathy, it does creep up on one. I didnt even like it when he first performed it. I remember David raving about it and I couldnt understand. Now I am truly hooked. It's in my head for sure.

Shellfish didn't creep up on me. It smacked me right between the eyes from the very first listen. It is my absolute fave on the album, and will be a constant at the top of my Gord heirarchy for a very long time. Considering my Gord faves change on a daily - or even hourly - basis, that is quite a compliment.

OK Dave, so I was a bit slow on this one. I promise to do better next time.

Hey SH, we're a great team. You'll be there for me soon enough!

Oh yes, and River Of Light is number two on the list, but Shellfish wins by half a length.

Walt,

Just a friendly warning. If you are like most of us, you will now be playing Harmony repeatedly for months to come, day after day. I bought it when it first came out, and it is only in recent weeks that I sometimes actually go for 2-3 days without playing it. It is incredible, and just gets better with each listen!

This is true. I am one of those who will find something new (music, food, misc. activity) and then thoroughly and ridiculously overdo it to the point where I am sick of it in a few months.

Gord is the exception. I never grow weary, and even in the old songs, I will still occasionally hear or feel a new sensation.

Well after listening to the album for most of the weekend, I think No Hotel has jumped into number one. Flying Blind is also climbing my personal charts.

When he wrote Harmony, I'm wondering if he was simply thinking about finding the right notes to a song, finding harmony in his life, or (and this is what came to my mind) finding harmony in the world. The world could sure use a little Harmony these days.

Best,
Walter Farmer

Walter,

Before he sang Harmony at the shows in Hamilton he said that he had written the song when he was "on the cusp of personal trauma" and thought it would be good to see if he could get a song out of it. I'm told he was looking right at someone when he said that but I didn't notice. He laughed about it too but not like it was "haha" funny, if you take my meaning eh?

Bill
