Default Re: Shadows: Thoughts

I agree that Shadows is a fine album and I enjoyed it very much when I bought the LP in '82. Many artists enjoy a period when they're commercially "hot" and I think Gord experienced this from '74-'78, roughly speaking. Paul McCartney had a similar period from around '74-'82 and Steve Winwood from '86-'91. Lightfoot, as well as McCartney & Winwood, continued to make excellent music after the sales had dropped off somewhat, but the times, pop culture, and musical styles and preferences are always evolving. Some of the albums I like the best are ones that didn't do that well commercially.
