Re: LONDON UK-Royal Albert Hall-May 25,2016

I didn't hear anything negative from the audience at all as I left the show (someone was lamenting the absence of 'Daylight Katy' from the setlist, which could surely only happen in the UK!) and...

Re: Lightfoot on BBC Radio!

Hmmm, wonder if next year's UK tour has reminded a few people in high places of Gord's existence? :-)

Re: U.K. 2016 TOUR!!!!!!He's going back to Royal Albert Hall !!

Have just booked my ticket for the Albert Hall gig and am, quite literally, dizzy with excitement. If someone would care to pinch me right about now that would be fine!!

Re: Poll: Favourite Closing Song on an album

Tough choice, but going with 'She's Not the Same'. If it was alllowed I'd pick 'Is There Anyone Home' (Hey, surely I'm not the only person who always played side 2 first?).

Re: Lightfoot and Chapin-Peterborough article-7-2013

Wow, now I have the answer to the age-old question of 'When would you go if you had a time machine?'! My two favourite singer-songwriters on a bill with two others not far down the list, and only one...

Re: BIlly Joel sings Lightfoot again

Always great to see love from one of my all-time favourite artists to another. Not that I need any validation for my love of Gord, obviously!

Re: HE IS FINE - it was a hoax

Well, I recently felt forced to comment on a newish Amazon (UK) review of 'Sundown' that referred to him as 'the late' Gordon Lightfoot, so it seems the rumours persist in certain quarters!

Re: Who else are you listening to?

I'm always listening to Marillion and Magnum (well, they are my two favourite bands).

I've also been on one of my periodic kicks of listening to a lot of Harry Chapin just lately.

Re: Words in Gord's lyrics & nobody else's

Gitche-Gumee
Joneses
Lee (of an island etc)
Prima Donna (but I'm sure it's heard in a song on Van Morrison's album "A Night in San Francisco")

For the above...

Not sure if Neil Diamond's...

Re: Original vs Re-recordings.

I wonder how significant which version you heard first is in determining your favourites? 'Gord's Gold' was one of the first albums I ever bought (aged 8, IIRC!) and I'm naturally pre-disposed to...

Re: Seven Island Suite

Nothing much to add to the above, but -especially given my username! - it would be remiss of me not to add my lvoe for this song in this thread!

Re: The Gord Goal

Been thinking about this lately myself, next year's out of the question but maybe 2014...I am, of course, assuming, that a sudden (final?) return to the UK is out of the question for Gord?

Re: CHUM radio top 30 CHART-1966

Thanks for that, but it's the Canadian chart positions I'm hunting, I'm a Billboard anorak for most artists I love, hence I can point out that the page linked to omits the Billboard peaks for 'Sunday...

Re: CHUM radio top 30 CHART-1966

I have never even heard of this song (it's not on Songbook either...).
Speaking of Canadian music charts is there anywhere online I can find Gord's complete singles and album chart peaks?

Re: PRESS RELASE - CD songlist and cover picture

Ordered through Amazon UK - was originally meant to ship today, but had an email pushing it back to between 21 and 29 May - not too bothered, given that the previous fastest time I've had a Gord...

Re: PRESS RELASE - CD songlist

As someone who never has (and sadly never will in all likelihood) seen Gord live I'm thrilled with this release. Of course it had to have the big songs on it to have the widest appeal and the lesser...

Can't share the in the love for Rolf Harris that's expressed in this thread, but it was fabulous to see this clip despite him! It comes in at #3 in my top 10 of clips from the series so far here:

Re: It's on!! BBC 4 - Lightfoot 1972 show

Spotted this in the listings a while ago, but only just had the chance to catch up on iplayer - having never seen Gord live (save for the Reno DVD) this blew me away even more than I was expecting,...
