This Yarmouth Castle; song, has long been a favorite of mine. Pure poet genius writing, to such a tragic true story. And pure genius images, to go along in your video, Gahoendoe.

"Seven Island Suite", is a favorite amongst most here. I know it has been my personal favorite, from the first time I heard it, in 1974.

Speaking of shipwrecks. You might like to know that the Morro Castle, sister ship of the Yartmouth Castle, caught fire and burned too.

The ship washed up on a New York, or New Jersey beach, and thousands came to see the wreck.

This incident is believed to be sabotage by a disgruntled crewman.

Bargain time
Sunday Concert Plus is not often if ever sold in CD shops and to order online from for example amazon.com costs a fair bit and if you add in the shipping and handling it can get pretty expensive
I will not post the URL or item number here but the first person who does not have it who gets to ebay at:-
http://www.ebaylightfoot.notlong.com
will find a new auction that started yesterday for a new copy of the CD going for the most reasonable "But It Now" price of only $9.99 and with free S and H
I do like "Buy It Now" auctions you know exactly how much it will cost and get it immediately without the nail biting rigmarole of seeing if someone else outbids you,
Indeed if they use a sniping programme that can and does happen at the very last minute literally
If anybody gets it please report back here

You should.As I said it will obviously be first come first served. as of 3PM EST it is still there and I noticed the seller claims
"New, factory-sealed CD"
So you cannot really go wrong
John
P.S.
I have myself previously addressed the question of Sunday Concert Plus especialy in the old (2004) Topic: Hmmm...which one to buy first? at:-
http://www.corfid.com/ubb/Forum1/HTML/002090.html
wheree I displayed a scan of its back insert showing the track list

OK....I'm a little confused here. The Ebay item displays a pic of Sunday Concert plus, but the track listing only contains 11 songs. Isn't that the original Sunday Concert ? I checked Amazon and the 11 track version can be had for less than $4.00 (plus S&H).

You are right Mr. Fowles in stating the "real" Plus version, with the 5 additional songs is still pricey. Amazon has a $22.99 price tag on it.

Oh well You and me both Ron as is the seller legendonecompany, since he/she does not realise that there is a vast difference as you so rightly pointed out between the "standard" 11- track Sunday Concert or Gordon Live Lightfoot album/LP/CD and the enhanced Bear Family "Plus" version as I showed above with the 5 bonus tracks. So the seller might well have inadvertently chosen the incorrect CD picture to display on his/her auction.I must admit that I did not actually see or read the track list but took the displayed CD picture at face value and showed it above.
Perhaps if Peter is keen to get it he could himsef contact the seller and point out the possible error of his ways and seek clarification

I am lucky in having, "Sunday Concert Plus." The guy that owns the music store here in Moncton, is a big Gordon Lightfoot fan. And there you will find Gord's CD's, that you cant find nowhere's else in Moncton.

I agree w/ John & Val it is superior, than the plain Sunday Concert.

Can't understand why Frank's son, is not on this site. The owner of this music store. When I see him next, will talk to him about it.

But if someone can buy it at that price, that's a hell of a deal.

Hey John, as soon as I saw your posting a ways back a phoned my wife at home (am at work at the time) and asked her to go back and snag the "plus" version... but it was already too late. Bummer. better luck next time.
I did ask her to bid on a regular version and we got it. not a bad price, but not the "plus" version you guys have been talking about.

Amazon has 4 sellers listing Sunday Concert Plus for pretty reasonable prices. Why not just buy it ?
