Default 1979-Chicago Soundstage videos

About 1980, Gord did a TV concert on Soundstage, which was a PBS series. One of the new songs he did was "Ghosts of Cape Horn", which he said he had written for a documentary film about the days of sailing ships and the hazards of rounding the Horn. It also included some clips from the film. Many of the tunes he did were new ones from "Dreamstreet Rose". Does anyone know if this concert video is available anywhere? I've not been able to find any record of it at all, which is too bad because it was a great concert!

I too, have seen the Soundstage you are are referring to. I've contacted my local public station in Dayton, Ohio (WPTO/WPTD) about the presentation. They seem to be clueless but that does not surprise me.

Alas, that video was never officially released. The only way to get a copy is from someone who already has it. Thus, it falls into the "bootleg" category. And, there are strong feelings on both sides of that issue. I see nothing wrong with having a copy of the video. Others feel differently.

I wrote to WTTW in Chicago about the terrific "Made in Chicago" Gordon Lightfoot concert shot there in 1973. They weren't even decent enough to answer my e-mail.

I remember this concert from PBS very fondly. We recorded it on VHS, but I can't find it right now. If I could, I would convert it to DVD in a heartbeat!

It's OK Penna skater
That has already been done but it had been only available as a torrent distribution with originally only a minimalist opening menu
more recently an uploader to dime has added a useful itemised menu enabling each individual song to be clicked on the resulting DVD and now if you were to read my posting at
http://corfid.com/vbb/showpost.php?p...7&postcount=33
you would learn that Amazon.co.uk are selling for a bit over $20.00 including air mail postage
a most likely highly unofficial but very presentable sealed DVD copy

Sure you can watch several of the featured song performances on YouTube but the all in one DVD complete with heavily butchered/foreshortened CRT is so much better
I even included a link to the Amazon sales page in my posting

Does anyone remember the show Gord taped for WTTW for the predecessor to "Soundstage" called "Made In Chicago?". It was done right after the releases of DQ and ODR. Gord wore a weird pancho type shirt with a medallion. I'd love to see that show again.
