Re: Newport 65 poster

This has got to be one of the coolest concert posters I have ever seen! I love how Gordon and Bob basically share equal billing. At first I almost had to wonder if the poster really was from 1965. I...

Re: My 1st concert : 10 years ago tonight!

10 years used to be a long time. Although the last 10 seem to be more like 5. Anyway, thank you Borderstone; because your story of how you met Gordon spurned me on to do likewise. I remember it was a...

Re: CHEAP THRILLS magazine - JUNE 1980

Interesting article. I think it's from 1976 though; I believe that was the year Montreal hosted the summer Olympics- plus they mention a TV special with Bing Crosby and Freddie Prinze, both of whom...

Re: Lightfoot and the garbageman

Very cool...I've seen various interviews over the past few years where Gordon mentions how much he misses that house. I wonder if there's any chance he could move back.

Re: Writing GORDONLIGHTFOOT - book excerpt

Last week I posted my thoughts on the "new" book. Admittedly I still haven't read it, although I do read the excerpts and reviews when Char and others post them. Reading over what I wrote, I really...

Re: Writing GORDONLIGHTFOOT - book excerpt

When I first read the book excerpt, I just skimmed over the text. My reaction was a bit kneejerk. Later, I thought that perhaps my negative feelings toward the book were a bit hasty. I mean, we all...

The anticipation is building. I'll be at Gordon's Shippensburg concert this Saturday "and man, I'm feelin' fine!" In many ways, Shippensburg is the perfect setting for a Gordon Lightfoot concert....

Does anyone know who the little boy between Gordon and Bob is? Could it be Jakob Dylan?

Re: Rolling Stone Magazine

Rolling Stone magazine has zero credibility with most people who appreciate good music, so that doesn't really surprise me.

Re: GL Tracks heard in public that are not his hits.

I know of a radio station in Hagerstown, MD (AM 1240 WJEJ) that plays quite a few non-hit Gordon Lightfoot songs (especially in the evening). Here's a link to their website: http://www.wjejradio.com/...

Re: Mr. Lightfoot called AGAIN ! CHat with CHar - 2nd edition!

In regards to Char's question about the re-releases. Is it just me, or does Gordon seem a little apprehensive about his catalog being remastered and released on a new label?
