While you are waiting for someone to answer your question I was wondering if you could give us a review of the concert in Ottawa? I noticed that Ian Tyson was playing the night before at a different venue. Do you think he went to Gordon's concert?

Lengthy show; about 2.5 hrs all in.
Gord has a cold, clearly affecting vocals in the first half, vocals down in the mix, but Clements shining. Last half of the show shines; multiple of newer tunes and one which he introduces as "the best song written about North America by a 'white man' (!)", and plays a great tune I cannot pin down; terrric job on the Dylan and Tyson covers; I don't beleive Ian was there; friends of mine backstage after the show and only Gord and Haynes hanging around; Gord flubs early verse of Trilogy, but show veers between some opening night inconsistencies and utter transcendance on the many tunes he and band are in sync; even with flub in Trilogy, I noticed even the sound guy well into the tune which was hugely popular and best version I've seen; hilight for me was the song I described above, version of "Make Way for the Lady" and a pure "Early Morning Rain"

Hi Fletcher,

quote:.. and one which he introduces as "the best song written about North America by a 'white man' (!)"
The song he referred to was 'Waiting For You'.
I only wonder what other song Gordon Lightfoot has in mind.

Fortunately he will have plenty of time to recover from his cold because he will pause touring until beginning of March.

Maybe he can even use the time to write a couple of new songs.

Thanks to those who have responded; emabarrassingly, I have owned a copy of Waiting on You since its release; I'm not certain why I did not recognze it, perhaps an altered arrangement, or perhaps fading memories. Regards.
