at the sight lightfoot.ca/ it mentions being released in 1973 instead of 1974. even at Valerie's old Lightfoot page is listed as 1973 as well. was it perhaps released in Canada perhaps in Dec. 73 and the follow month in the US? even his 1st album Lightfoot in some of the stories about the album released is sometimes credited to 1965 instead of 1966.

My album purchased in the US of A says "All songs were written by Gordon Lightfoot and published by Moose Music (CAPAC), 1973 Moose Music, a division of Early Morning Productions Ltd, Toronto". It also says "Made in USA in 1974 - Warner Bros. Records Inc." Perhaps that is where the mix up generates?

I've noticed that your questions deal with the minutia of GL information...are you writing a book, miketouhy? Will I get a research credit?

It was recorded in November 1973 at the Eastern Sound studios in Toronto, and released in January 1974 by Warners.

Was that SUPPOSED to be a joke ?

The really funny thing is that I keep misreading your name as Mike Touchy and you just proved how apt that would be!!
Anyway interesting that you opined (sorry Al there's that word again!!) that Lightfoot! was releasaed in i966 not the usually accepted/stated 1965.I know I first became aware of this marvellous voice in 1965 when I first of all heard the Buddy Holly style song "Spin Spin" which was in the Canadian top ten in October 1965 but after that I then heard Gord's masterly cover of Ewan McColl's "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face"and I seem to remember that I wasted no time trying to find the Lightfoot! first UA album in order to get "Face" and yet I recorded at the time that I bought it in April 1967 (not long before I first saw Gord Live in May 1967). So I have always doubted the claim of a 1965 release date. Or does anybody reading this have more information???

Actually Wayne who usuasly uses impecable details says in his 1960s chronology page
"In January, Lightfoot! is released by United Artists."

Story originally printed in the La Crosse Tribune or online at http://www.lacrossetribune.com

*******************************************

Peggy Seeger, inspiration for ballad, shares her own music

By LINDA McALPINE / La Crosse Tribune

Peggy Seeger's face may not have been the one to launch a thousand ships, but it was the inspiration for a popular love ballad.

Seeger, half-sister of famous folk singer Pete Seeger and renown in the genre herself, was in La Crosse to perform at the Great River Folk Festival, which continues today on the University of Wisconsin-La Crosse campus.

"We weren't married then, and were estranged, and not getting along very well," Seeger said of her 30-year relationship with songwriter Ewan McColl. "I was in California and he was in England."

Seeger said McColl sang "The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face," to her over the phone.

"He told me he made it up on the phone as he was talking to me, saying he was cuckoo in love," she said.

"He never sang it again," she said. "He gave it to me."

McColl died in 1989, but Seeger said she thinks of him every time she sings that song.
