If I can ask for some info.....who wrote all those songs and, in general what time period did Gord sing them.

In the real old days all he did was covers...before he started to write that is.

hey thanks for the list I'm gonna check them out.

John

Back in, I think, November of 71 I saw him at Carnegie Hall and he did Kristofferson's Lovin' Her Was Easier Than Anything I'll Ever do Again.

lol, jessie...wasn't that in the baby blue tux (i had to wear on of that colour in a wedding party in the 70s, complete with big collars )

i guess this is stretching it but he did join in for the Share the Land (the Guess Who) singalong at the end of the Family Farm Benefit...and wish he had taken a verse for the Live8 finale
YouTube - Live 8 CANADA Neil Young

js, off hand, i don't know who wrote all those live covers he used to do (could look em up one by one i suppose) ...i wish he would have taken a verse of 4 Strong Winds at the '86 Ian and Sylvia Reunion

It's an imposible task to know them all. Didn't he do the National Anthem @ a Blue Jays opener ? I seem to have that on tape, which he told to the late great Peter Gzowski in one of his interviews.

Any how here are more from Wayne's Site !

yeah, jessie, that is where i pasted the list from (i sue didnt type all of that! lol)

he wore his Blue Jay jacket when singing the anthem (it wasn't appreciated by Steinbrenner, lol...I think it was at a Jay Yankee grapefruit game)

i believe that Gzowski mentions that they penned Song for Canada together In Conversation, no? I havent watched that in a long time

and you could add the Little Teapot song as well, I suppose

how about 'The Lord's Prayer' (the first record he made)
