I believe he would be a liberal. He did very well by the policies of a liberal Liberal government during the 70s in Canada (regulations that made playing Canadian artists a priority on radio) as well...

I thought Elana's version of Early Mornin' Rain was the truest rendition to the "feel" of that song of any of the numbers performed. I even thought she sang it better on the second night and she...

I think it aired on CBC and was called "Floating over Canada." It also featured Buffy Saint-Marie and Levon Helm (he sang Acadien Driftwood.

Here is a line from the Canadian Encyclopedia about...

"River of Light" for me. I agree with Joveski who said it could fit with the best of his 70s (yes, I'm one of those who likes his sound and songs from the early to mid 70s the best). :)

I used to like the Gord's Gold version the best, but later changed my mind to the original. I find he has a really raw expressiveness to his voice on that early 1966 version. I can almost "be" on the...

It's interesting that IFYCRM is used. In my opinion, Gord sounded the best on the albums produced by and with Lenny Waronker.

it could have been that his voice was at its peak and that Lenny was...

I have every GL song I own on my iPod. More than any other artist.

As for over-rehearsed, I may agree on the odd album. I think Gord tends to be too much of a perfectionist some times and...

I've been a solid, uninterrupted fan since 1969 - Gord's always had #1 spot for me - ALWAYS!.

I'm also not new to the Internet, but I just hadn't looked before for this type of site. A few years...

Great review - I think you really hit the key points and got the core of the music and his direction. I thought you described it very well.

First and foremost, I'm a true Lightfoot fan. Have been since 1969. I still listen to Gord more than anyone else. Over and over, and I don't get tired of his music.

In all these years, very few...

We should each make up our own "flawless" album of 10 songs from all his many albums. I've tried making up playlists before with the 10 songs that for me, are the very best of GL, but it sure ain't...

I'd love it if he'd release the Massey Hall album, but in the 25 GL concerts I've seen, he's rarely spoken all that much so don't expect long stories. The preamble he gives for The No Hotel is about...

That's a real treat. What a great rendition of the song. It captures the feeling of it really well.

I also love that disco version of If You Could Read My Mind that was done for that movie "Club...

I think what I like most about this album is that because Gord sang these as demos, he didn't go back and overwork the vocals which I think he may have done on recent albums (the last 20 years)....
