Remember when we were pushing HARMONY to get it to the top? Could we still give our new favourite album a very BIG push???

Sorry to say, but it's too late in the release cycle for that. With very rare occasions, an album will move thru it's up/down cycle within 6 weeks or more. It all comes down to exposure and radio air play, and unfortunately, most artists past 50 or so, just don't get added to station playlists, hence exposure is limited. "Harmony" did a lot for Gordon:1)it let a lot of people know that Gord was still around and still interested in continuing his career 2)for the first time in ages it seems, many music critics took notice of a new Lightfoot album and most liked what they heard 3)it gave Gord's fans their first new Lightfoot product since 1998
4)it reenegerized Gord and I'm convinced aided in his recovery. So "Harmony" may not have set the music charts on fire, but it was a fine exercise in writing and musicianship, and proved to Gord that he can still do it, even if an album's put together in an unconventional way.

Thanks, LSH, it's just my take on the situation. I did make a typo...I meant to say the most albums pretty much run their up/down cycle in 6 weeks or LESS.

Well Sean,I did see some DJ's from local radio's KMLE,a country station. I signed up to win something or other and after doing so,I told them they should really consider giving Gordon's "End Of All Time" a play.

I gave them the name of the song and CD on paper and they took it with them. Haven't had a chance to listen but I can only hope they knew I was serious.

In May,I called every possible station but to my knowledge,no one tried. The CD didn't even crack the album chart in Billboard or even get reviewed in some trade publications. Well,it's their loss (anyone who hasn't heard it that is!) Later!

Well, Gord made it and we heard it. That's all that matters really!
