Re: Gordon at Massey Hall 1974!

Just re-read "Same Old Loverman"'s first post again -- he mentioned surprise that Gord didn't do "Carefree Highway" at the '74 concert. But he DID do it the night I saw him (which was two nights...

Re: Gordon at Massey Hall 1974!

The diary comes through again (to add to RM's recollection). I have an entry on Jan. 26th, 1974 that mentions hearing the tune "Sundown" on the radio and the disc jockey announcing that it was the...

Re: Gordon at Massey Hall 1974!

Hi there, Jesse-Joe! Nice of you to respond!

No, I haven't yet been to the casino. I drive by it every so often on the Trans Canada and I'm still amazed by the size of the thing. I hadn't heard...

Re: Gordon at Massey Hall 1974!

Just checked my old diary for the year 1974. I was 15 years old and I attended the Massey concert (it was my second time seeing Gord and I was in absolute heaven). BUT I attended the concert on...

Re: A "National Treasure" takes Coliseum stage !

Wow! Great rabbit stories, Misty. Thanks.
As for the Maritimes and Atlantic Canada, until Gord mentioned it, I didn't realize the distinction had anything to do with how old one was!

Re: A "National Treasure" takes Coliseum stage !

I'm trying to remember ..... Aside from saying that he was glad to be here, he mentioned the weather in St. John's (NFLD), laughed at the fact that it was snowing and cold when they arrived there...

Re: A "National Treasure" takes Coliseum stage !

Sorry for the double reply. The first one seemed to completely disappear and so I thought I needed to re-create it. And then it appeared!

Thanks Jesse-Joe. Yes I was there. It was a great show and I didn't want it to end. I loved sitting in the front and enjoyed seeing the facial expressions between members of the band. I managed...

Re: Bring on Gordon Lightfoot to new CASINO NB !

Thanks for posting this, Jesse-Joe (and for your other post too). I have to admit that I didn't realize the casino was going to include a concert stage. Big excitement for Moncton!

Re: Massey Hall!

Hi Jesse-Joe,

You might remember that I've posted a couple of times. In response to your news about 2nd row seats, I just had to mention (in my excitement) that I called early enough to get front...

Re: Character Persona

Yeah .... "You'll Still Be Needing Me" is another good example of the same thing.

I've always thought that the reason Gord paired up "For Lovin' Me" with "Ribbon of Darkness" later in his career...

Re: Character Persona

I believe Gordon has been uncomfortable with the song "For Loving Me" because of its chauvinistic tone. He has implied (I think) that the song is "tongue-in-cheek" and I've always understood it that...

Re: One single line of lyrics makes the song much better

There are many, but one I can think of right now is from "Affair on Eighth Avenue":
"We came through a doorway somewhere in the night"

It's the unspecific nature of it -- it could by ANY doorway,...

Re: "Stemming gold to make ends meet..."

Oh drat. You've found me out! But it's Moncton, NB (not NS). We don't like to be confused with the Nova Scotians to the south.

As for "stemming gold," I think ALL the suggested interpretations...

Hi,

I don't often post on the group, but this a question that grabbed me (since I teach English literature!) I checked the Oxford English Dictionary and there is one definition for "stem" as a...

A very longtime listner, since way back in the early 70's. My friends and I refer to our treks to concerts as "camping trips"---"camping" being when the hotel shuts down room service!
