Thanks so much for posting the link. That was marvelous! Now if John Cale would cover "Ribbon of Darkness" and Lou Reed cover "Sundown" I could die a happy man. I don't suppose we'll be hearing GL...

I agree that we don't know whether GL's best songwriting days are behind him or not. When I was talking to Terry after the Edmonton show, I asked him if the band had been in the studio with Gord...

I got the impression that he's still playing, but has to adjust his style on some songs and can't play some others (yet). Some performers end up with debilitating arthritis or carpal tunnel syndrome...

I find Daylight Katy to be pretty easy, but I agree with the observation that many of Gord's songs are in the same basic vocal range (more or less baritone if I'm not mistaken).

You know, as much as I love Gord's music this is a song I just don't think has aged well. Another song of his that deals with a similar theme in superior fashion (IMHO) is "Does Your Mother Know".
