BigJ, I prefer earlier Lightfoot efforts. If You Could Read My Mind is a beautiful song on a beautiful disc, and all of Don Quixote is good, too. In fact, you can't really go wrong with Gord, but...

Thanks for sharing.

Don't expect too much sympathy (from me) regarding the picture--at least you got to meet him and grab his arm.

"If I Could Read Your Mind"?????

Anyone notice anything here??

Your view of this song seems a little rosy to me, Veronica, but the lyrics do lend themselves to different interpretations.

My own view is that the song is about a drifter who has little or...

I guess that I would spend most of the day singing. I have always wanted to be able to sing on key for at least a refrain, and would not miss an opportunity to sing like Gord.

I guess that I don't think that Gord is for everyone. Some people just have a different "taste" in music, and some unfortunate few don't really care for music at all. It's almost as if we have an...

Silver Heels, I don't forget Christian Island. I've always liked that song--even the rhythm of the song suggests the gentle rocking of a boat anchored near a shore to me. But I am surprised at how...
