Default The Robbin Wakefield Lightfoot Collection album

If anyone wants this one, I copied my cassette copy of it to my computer and submitted it to the Lounge Legends website a few weeks back. They didn't post it right away, but I notice that it showed up a couple of days ago-I was starting to think that maybe they were not going to post it, I did my best to clean it up, but it's at least a 2nd generation cassette - and i'm not sure if the original media source was a factory cassette or CD.

It's a nice instrumental collection though, largely acoustic guitars and fairly well done sythns. On K-Tel records from 1991. If I remember right, Rick Haynes played bass on it as well.

Click on "TRACKS" for their download.

Also, it's available here where I uploaded it myself:

07 It's Worth Believin'
08 Carefree Highway

Hi Andy.

Yes, this is an excellent piece of instrumental work and it's part of my forty odd year collection of Gordon Lightfoot associated material as well.

It was given to me by my good friend in Scarborough, Joe Wood, owner of Rosedale Records who had a post office box in the postal station where I worked.

I remember Joe telling me Robbin's dad was a big Gordon Lightfoot fan and he did the recording for his dad.

I recall Rick's name somewhere as being part of it as well and I will need to locate the cassette and it's cover to double check. At the moment my music collection is in storage.

Thanks for the posting.

RJ.

You're welcome.

Since I was using a dub copy, I did not have any album art other than the cover which came from searching online. I didn't find anything else other than that cover. Discussion of the album from the newsgroup in the late 90s is where I recall that Rick Haynes played on the album. Since very little about this release is "out there", if you at some point dig up your factory cassette, could you post a scan of the insert card maybe?

Oh, I'm sure he did - I remember that pretty clearly from the newsgroup! (Although on "Beautiful" I kind of wondered, because the bass work on the Wakefield track doesn't have quite same feel as with Gord.) I just have never seen the actual liner notes for the album.

A trip to the storage facility is on the "to do" list.

Okay, since HotFile got burned by the Powers That Be, the last link above is now dead. So I'll try a different file sharing site:
