Icon6 Lightfoot NON-covers - Gord himself

I thought I'd put these links in this forum until they find a home in another area - the cover artists and fans might like to see the real deal over the years - I also buried these in an old thread on the GL forum

this thread will be deleted or moved along with about 15 of the 25 other threads that don't belong here, it should be cover Artist names only, no?

enjoy and add any others from TV broadcasts or pro live recordings - I purposefully omitted the Reno DVD for various reasons, mainly all can easily purchase it

1962 Remember Me

1967 For Lovin Me

1967 For Lovin Me

1969 Ribbon of Darkness

1969 Softly

1970 Saturday Clothes

1971 Steel Rail Blues

1974 Sundown

1979 Cotton Jenny

1979 If You Could Read My Mind

1979 Sundown

1979 The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald

1986 Knotty Pine

1999 If You Could Read My Mind

2005 If You Could Read My Mind

2005 Let It Ride

2009 Song for a Winter's Night...solo performance

the last one is an exception to the 'TV only' rule but needs to be here, thanks, char!

some more additions (add away jesse jo)

Well there ya go!! ..I've been working all day on a list like this!!
I finished the Misc.covers from previous posts at SMALL talk. Now I have GEN.Discussion forum to go through..

oh, mid-week I'd said I'd get my current archive of links to covers and GL TV soon as I could if it would help ...it took a few days extra cos they were on my Mac and that e-mail aint happening of late, I left jump drive at work and I wasn't gonna right em out by looking at Mac monitor and jotting on paper then typing them in this thing....can you imagine the typos attempting those youtube urls! lol

i hope you found some TV stuff that I might not have seen or my list overlooked...previously I just purely search youtube and not corfid, that image character test i have to decipher and type out drives me nuts...i know johnF explained it but i dont see the need...this aint an ATM...i'm just searching! lol

ok, i violated the embed rule mainly cos Gord doing covers of his own stuff is special...and until we have pages of his stuff (please!) it all fit on one page...i can change it if it's upsetting any members on dialup...i can't believe i forgot to give the Thumbs Up icon to this Gord thread...as rm point out, thread starters cannot change or delete their dumb moves, agh

great, yeah, that's what i meant by 'another area'...what i typically see is a media links section, an uncluttered, a concise list of links off the home page...whatever works for you guys...hope the gord and cover links saved some work, i know jesse could have saved you even more work

Default Re: Ligthfoot NON-covers - Gord himself

nice fixo of the typo, lol

oh, i filtered out the links i archived and only posted these TV appearances, since they are pro...sure, there are a boatload of bootleg live performaces you can add til the cows come home, lol...if including promo videos there are some more around, bad quality for sure...if you want to really expand the scope and beef up the #pages, start adding the vistories...like i said, this was just pro TV stuff plus you great SFAWN video ...i was gonna add TV interviews but couldnt find many, cheers (it's that time!)

ps) here are a few more non-performance videos...i am not a fan of looking at video while listening to gord unless it's live...imo, only bad music needs visuals to salvage it...i generally also don't like MTV, CMT, videos... which is kinda ironic, lol

YouTube - Shadows

YouTube - Blackberry Wine

ps2) when the links here find a home, gotta filter out all of the chit chat i've aleady cluttered it with and go back to those nice clean non-embedded titles

Default Re: Ligthfoot NON-covers - Gord himself

sure, but it's all in a different league than the tv produced stuff

my thinking for attracting new fans and getting them interested in buying Gord cds and attending current concerts (even Gord fans who just might have attended since the baritine voice era) is that these live bootlegs might turn them off ...it really does no justice to the actual live experience...maybe they just need a sub-thread or whatever....maybe some folks just do like the raw live bootlegs and rather are uninterested in the polished TV stuff, what do i know

i certainly dont see bootlegs linked off of off other artist home pages, lol...it is not encouraged...i think the only one i considered was Me and Bobby Magee ...i wouldnt mind seeing some pre-1990 or even pre-2000 bootlegs and could cope with the blair witch shakiness and cruddy audio...i'm more interested in the song intros & anecdotes

oh, i came back to comment about the "unembedded" links you've pasted, char...many are corrupt...maybe a carriage (or stroller, lol) return problem...wanted ya to check it out before you keep going...*try leave a line between songs and put the link all in one line

you're right, char...my embedding of those videos lead to too much scrolling, regardless if it's Gord ...i've edited my posts above

you know, if i landed on a thread like this 10 years ago (before I'd seen or recalled even 25% of this stuff) I know I'd be ecstatic!

Default Re: Ligthfoot NON-covers - Gord himself

jj - I admire and thank you, Char, and (?others?) for this effort. It is an intelligent partitioning to make.

A few thoughts:

-Forgive the observation w/o being integrally involved in any way in this effort myself, so an uninformed thought based on reading some posts back and forth only mildly suggests that you jj, Char, and others thoughtfully volunteering their time - such as you jj et al would benefit from a bottom-up approach to ideas mining (which appears to be allready done), subsequent refining, then up to you and Char coordinating the efforts of that which involves Florians additions/changes, after those changes, a top-down implementation starting with Char and/then you jj,delegation & implementation of filling -in, moving, categorizing, copying,linking outward/inward etc. to populate (there is a BIG task) the new partitions, but reading Char's Q/reminder on which/what forum sections to add, versus the much-appreciated efforts you are making jj (been wondering what kind of working sabbatical you were on - simply sounds like the coordination has only a couple of questions back and forth from you and Char, which considering the complexity level of what you guys are doing is remarkable.... - so if you are saying now "what is Steve trying to say ?" ..lol.. That would be"My compliments to a large amount of work allready done that all of us will benefit from, and I admire you2 and anyone else involved (Jesse Joe, Sir John et al ?) - this would seem right up their alley to help you guys on.


* and BTW ,the 'BURYING" WAS A GOOD IDEA - If I am reading the intent properly - very smart, Hogan

lastly
* I see a need for a coordinated effort in tags to have corfid pull-up more. If I read the level so far, and of course you guys could be way ahead of me on this, is to have a knowledgable person in search-engine practice speerhead an effort more 'enterprise-wide" (I allways hated that in meetings, its usually a showboat term to simply 'say' and baffle everyone into thinking you are whats up in IT - that I have heard guys say that couldn't find their server-multiplexer with a six-man search party lol) - but here in unconventional terms fits the bill IMO - take cordfid's maximum tags and other limitations coordinated so as the 'pull' to corfid is out there flagged in a way that will most effectively pull in prospective members, AND introduce people (a whole new generation) to The Man (harder now w/o the Tribute Vistories).

From my limited ability to see or know what is going on beyond simple thread-serving tags to pull in ppl to a given thread, we need a concerted effort to set-up entire-forum-wide tags to most effectively do this and remove any resources being guzzled by individual threads. I added a thread tags string today, in order to see what tomorrow's time slice in web server's will show when I search from info.com as my search engine of prefernce - as it invokes about the 6 most popular engines simulataneously, and coordinates the output. It is less subject to those damned 'sponsored' hyperlinks. At least they are ID'd as such.

But I'll see how easily I can pull ppl into Cordfid from the tags I slapped on Lyrics quizzers. I looked out at the forum w-ide level, and the 5 (?) total partitions we have now level, and didn't see any, sys-admin *only* level with Florian ? I slapped my forum name only to see if I could quickly pull from Myspace, where I use the same forum name. Facebook seems to be taking over as the "grown up professional" less cutesy mee-ism "Ilike to run on the beach and then have tacos ! he heh eheeh" - that I find rather cloying in Myspace anymore. There are still plenty of good people on it - many corfidites, and PeeWee Charles etc. , but when Microsoft embed hooks in to FaceBook and not MySpace - the writing is on the wall. Its co-op with Micrsoft or die, as I see it.

And every whrer you look in linked sites, Facebook is appearing as Avitar/Icon to auto-link the site with your facebook account. I know I am changing. The 'buying of friends and having others as pets' is way to sophomoric for me to enjoy. So al I am saying is to have a coordinated effort with whatever tags limitations we have - and are we soaking them allready at the individual thread level - a new but burgeoning practice in users threads. Mine is an experiment, then I'll communicate and coordinate as Char/Florian deem fit.

jj ans Char - thank you again for all you efforts we all benefit from

Default Re: Ligthfoot NON-covers - Gord himself

ditto, (except i perfectly understand steve's geotext, lol)
i assume you're speaking of the gord links, there must be more also...no Gzowski to be found or other classic clips?

char was the force behind this weeks' find and link organization, i had to mainly just hunt down work i had done over the past year, less intense accomplishment

as for "covers" , rm a big force behind that initiative...i've got my own sort by Song going offline, which suits my interests...the Artist sort is working pretty good and just needs some tweaks, perhaps more maintenance intense also

char, needs to delete a bunch of threads so that only those that contain songs by Artists remain...and that Misc thread is chaos...i had to search all over when i found more covers in order to see if they were aready posted...i think the Artist forum should just be threads that have link (and perhaps a sample of a cover) to the Artist channel and let anyone interested help themself

i wonder how many artists we've listed thus far, hard to count

i wonder how many GL tunes have been covered...a challenge to all (members and performers) is to find new ones that have never been covered...i came across Dreamland and Sweet Guinevere just recently and will post

there are many Artists many of us know but are not posted or do not have any links of their covers...Ed, Melissa, Derek, RonJ, BillH, etc...there are small clips in some of the montages but i'd love to hear/see versions start to finish sometime

thx, again, steve..and all appreciate your relentless Quiz prep fun (not to mention the commentary!!!!) , it's a winner

jj - i agree about the listing i did and then looking to see if a video is already there when you come across it at youtube...

the whole thing could turn into a mish mash of threads and even if it is sorted as of this minute in a conclusive way suitable to all, it will only take one new thread that has a previously listed video to have the whole house of cards blow up.

in searching for what i have already posted in the misc.thread i came across several links that were posted in several different threads over the course of a couple of years..by the same person..

not sure about the meaning of this: char needs to delete a bunch of threads so that only those that contain songs by Artists remain...
??? clarification??

no word from Guinness..other than have another pint and call me in the morning..

ok, char just set a record for the longest char post NOT containing an "lol"

ok, if the thread was by Song it would just have song titles as thread subject lines, with a variety of artist versions within each...that's easy enough to visualize...once/if all songs were covered we might have seen a 200+ thread count, just like good sheets, lol

conversely, here we should just have Artist names and/or their youtube login name as thread subject lines

so far was have an Artist list going as well as many artists (with only a single GL cover) contained in the Misc thread - we must have atleast 25 artists so far when you consolidate

these look good:


* Alison Krauss
* Bill Foley
* Brian E.
* Richard Hawley
* Joe Mills
* John Stinson
* Jory Nash
* Kefera
* Larry - podline6
* Molly - mmcs122
* Mr. Norm
* Barbra Streisand
* Marty Robbins
* Tim - GordisKing
* Tony Rice
* Miscellaneous covers and artists



** Lightfoot NON-covers - Gord himself


(this will find a more appropriate spot perhaps off the Homepage - it should really be a moderator controlled listing to keep it uncluttered - folks could discuss any performance they choose over in the GL forum)


for the thread names below, you might consider moving to GL forum or Small talk or renamed to an Artist name:



















*Song For A Winters Night
*Stone Cold Sober Cover
*The Wreck-Parody - Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus
*YouTUbe Channel for GL Covers.
*...Or another to play with this Forum

*Another great piece of work by Tom !

*More discussion/question on thread 'organization'

*Restless

*Softly Cover (need to rename this to Artist name, as it seems our new member will be adding more covers - we hope so anyhow)

absolutely lost.

You want each artist that does covers to have a thread of their own?

and each song that has a cover to have a thread of its own?

just what the majority voted for...yes, thread titles should be Artist name

these aren't artist names:








*Song For A Winters Night
*Stone Cold Sober Cover
*The Wreck-Parody - Hannah Montana/Miley Cyrus
*YouTUbe Channel for GL Covers.
*...Or another to play with this Forum

*Another great piece of work by Tom !

*More discussion/question on thread 'organization'

*Restless

*Softly Cover

and if only one cover, the artist song cover goes under Misc

if artist added 2nd cover then gets a thread of his own and his songs are deleted from Misc thread

this Artist sort is labour intensive...you voted for it, lol

maybe just can the Misc thread approach...easy solution

thx, char...i changed my tune a bit regarding posting live bootleg clips of Gord...some of these recordings are not bad mixes (you never have to worry about distortion or peaking anyhow, lol) and most importantly, many of our international member don't have to opportunity to catch Gord live these past few decades

the Watchman - nice mix, love Gord's altered phrasing leading into each verse...what i always love is Mike's deep, hovering strings countering Gord's melody ...they seep in around the 1:45 mark
