Here are the results so far:

Showdown #1
Old Dan's Records 16 Uncle Toad Said 2

Showdown #2
If You Could Read My Mind 13 Harmony 1

Showdown #3
Drifters 12 Stay Loose 6

Showdown #4
Hangdog Hotel Room 10 Betty Called Me In 5

Showdown #5
Slide on Over 10 Blackberry Wine 5

Sorry Sheryl, only one vote per family It seems we still have not had a really close vote. I really enjoy Slide on Over as well. It surprised me. Cold on the Shoulder is one of the last albums I bought, so I'd never heard the song before and I was already familiar with most of Gord's songs. I listened to that album many times. It's one of my favorites. Slide on Over is quite catchy. Anyway, Borderstone suggested putting Triangle up in a showdown. I already had it on my list. I put it with another song that has a similar rhythm and strumming pattern. So which one do you like the most?

Triangle

or

Sea of Tranquility

Sea of Tranquility, it's always going to be a great show when they start out with this one.

Oh, this was a tough one! On any given day these two are pretty evenly matched for me, but today I will vote for Triangle.

Wow, tough choice! I have to go with Sea of Tranquility. This was my first Gord album and I can just listen to it over and over. (I'm sure people are tired of me saying that...) But, Triangle's my 12-year-old's favorite. I'm bringing her with me to Sparks next weekend to see Gord! I have to override her on this, ha! SOT!!! (Oh, I LOVE "Slide on Over," too, but, had to make another tough choice, Minstrel Man!)

This was a tough one for me also. My head goes for Triangle but my heart jumps out on SOT. The heart wins!

Is it 2Late2vote?

Triangle, by more than a whisker. Considering how much I like Triangle, that's not any disrespect for SoT, which I like, but not nearly as much.

The title of "Sea of Tranquility" always makes me think that the moon should have been mentioned in the song. I also think the words don't flow quite as naturally in SoT as in Triangle.
