His voice sounds great in this one. I really think he'll do Restless on 10/8 although Shadows would be another good choice IMO. I miss the moustache too, Char.

probably some truths, but you gotta sell books with some edgy promo, eh

"What Peter represented was nostalgia for a self-confident decent and compassionate Canada that had all but vanished except in the memory of his listeners." good quote...yeah, and maybe someday they will bring Jian's gay skeletons out of the closet too, lol

jjo, you're videos are private...i was gonna check out if you made any progress in the transferring...i got this clean hifi version of this from a CBC closet...i love Pete's voice in stereo....i wonder how may smoke breaks these two took during the taping:whistle:

i dig this GL look...and i love how terry and rick (pre-mane) look here also

this is what a GL (and orchestra) house concert would be like...pretty good mix

I didn't make any progress jj & I agree with Gzowski voice in stereo. When I watch my DVD of this program it is very clear & full stereo sound. The music is almost as good as the recording. Gord & the guys really show their perfections in this tv studio. I really miss Peter Gzowski, there is something going on every year about this time for (literacy ?) @ The Capitol Theatre here, and they have a big poster of Gzowski... I guess it must have been something he was a spokesman for. You guys must know for sure.

What a great performance, and Gord delivers it in his characteristically understated style. I'd say the audio is easily as good as what you would find on the album version of this particular song.

As Gord himself admits, he has written many songs that have Canadian imagery in them, and Restless is no exception. But whenever I hear it, I think that he has truly captured the essence of Canada, particularly its vastness.
