More and more pros have done stripped down work worth remembering...Loretta Lynne, Johnny Cash, Kris Kristofferson.

Gord would excel at this if he would ever embrace the aesthetic.

Here's an idea: a video of a low key rehearsal ...now that would be something!

I love all of Ron's little videos he does like this..original or covers.. Yesterday when I got an alert he posted this I suggested he do a video of DRIFTERS next. He covered it on BEAUTIFUL (Lightfoot Trib cd) and I love it..

Very cool that he seems to be in his bedroom as he records it. How informal can you get for a professional musician LOL

This is the first "Anything for Love" cover version I've heard, apart from the one by a singer-pianist at a wedding reception I attended in 1987 in Geelong, Australia. For the many Lightfoot fans who found the original song overproduced, this suggests how it may have sounded if recorded a few years earlier or later.

i've heard many covers of it but, like the original, i never make it through em

Ron's is the new standard, imo …. if he ever has a writing dry spell, maybe he can include it and Too Late for Praying on an album … i think he would do an hell of a job with Only Love Would Know … or Clouds of Loneliness…. or ….
