both these guys are multi-talents

you also must check out Brain's originals...i believe he's about to break through
well said, folks...even though this was on prior page, hope i've stressed that all must also catch Let it Ride in studio and his originals

for example, go directly to this gem!


...do not pass GO, do not collect $200...

ps) some may recall that Bob brought us 7 Island Suite...a multi-talent

I have purchased every album that Gord ever made, as well the the songbook compilation. I have spent hours lying on my rec room floor between my 100 watt speakers with Gord cranked up as loud as i dared. I have attended too many concerts to count and had the honour of meeting Gord backstage in Ohio. I mention this only to add credence, when i say that Brian E. is amazing!! He has obviously done his homework and has the guitar playing sounding exactly like Gord. His voice has all the Lightfoot intonations down to a science!! Kudos to Brian!! Of course i can tell the difference but when i clicked on one of his covers in here the other day, my wife thought it was really Gord...awesome

You should check out his original also. He has more also

I can't seem to embed the video so it's easy to miss it

Anyhow glad you dig but I don't see him as imitator ( or mr Stinson) rather I just think they have similar stylings and tones with Gord obviously being an influence. I think Croce also comes through, as does Ekard

I hope Ron jones sets up a YouTube channel someday also and puts up some of his samplings of unique style that like John and Brian and some others in the crowd, have a love of Lighfoot emitted with every phrase

having Brian going into studionthe past few months as well as that BBC gem surfacing, has been a real treat for those who long for a resurgence of "the voice".. I hope john also gets into a studio sometime. I do recall Mando myk playing me a recording of a fella who was also delivering these good tones but can't trace him down and neither could myk

There are no shortage of excellent singers out there but only a small handful have been gifted with a "voice"

More more more....

Was just listening to this silky smooth non-gord cover performance and giving thanks to the music left behind by those taken from us, far too early

unless members are turned off by versions of Gord songs done by anyone other than Gord (aka, "covers"); do yourselves a favour and bookmark Brian and/or Bob's channels

the hits just keep on comin'.... actually, it's these non hits that I really admire!

(on a scale of 1 to 5)

I some cases I think Brian sounds better than Gordon. Examples: "Too Much To Lose" & "My Love For You"... I also love "Cup of Tea" with Brian & Charmaine. It's just the sweetest thing! I've got a Brian board on my Pinterest page. No Gordon board yet.... I think Brian & friends (our Jimmy J, Bob & Charmaine are incredible together! Does anyone know the name of the other guitar player?)

Does anyone know if Brian has any CDs out? He has, hands down, the absolute best voice, IMHO. I LOVE IT.
