Default Peewee Charles

Peewee was mentioned in a couple of other threads (and has even peeked in here, as evidenced by his signup). He has a new Myspace web site at:

www.myspace.com/peeweecharles

He just posted the music videos made for the Shadows album - something that a few people here have seen before but many have not. Click on the "videos" link under his picture.

Very nice Website at My Space, really enjoyed those 4 Lightfoot videos. I had seen 2 of them on Much Music in the 80's, "Shadows" & "In My Fashion." Thanks Valerie for that info...

The actual video for "Shadows" ??? Cool!!

As soon as I can get to the library,I'm seeing that!

I've seen all of Gord's "non-live" videos but that one. Right on!

Yes, all four of them and I presume that Peewee had a real "original" tape, not a 10th generation copy like most of us have seen. These look very nice indeed.

Pee Wee please!!....put these on a DVD for the fans!! Pretty please?
We'll even pay more than $10 for them!

Talk to Gordon and it can include Inspiration Lady and (from a Canadian show I don't know the name of) an unofficial video of "Gotta Get Away". Gordon and some guy in an Indiana Jones like hat are conoeing in Canada (and seemingly followed by a lovely lady in the woods).

I'd definetly say that'd be worth the price.

Finally saw "Shadows" and I can honestly say it's the best of the four. In My Fashion 2nd place,Baby Step Back and then Blackberry Wine.

Hey Borderstone that Canadian Show was on Canada Day 1984, with his good friend Murray McLauchlan !

MURRAY MCLAUCHLAN SPECIAL "FLOATING OVER CANADA" - CBC - 1984
Lightfoot did a sort of video to Gotta Get Away for this show. He is seen canoeing and playing his guitar and lip syncing by the side of a lake. It was well done.

Thanks for the info Jess! It is amazing how well Gord lip-synched to that song by the lake. In fact,in a way,he's more animated in that clip.

I love Shadows' videos but I wish they'd done a better concept for them,that he could really come alive in.

Inspiration Lady,of course,is better than all of these but I was just commenting on the 4.

sorry, my misread, B...I'm glad Gord hasn't been a big video guy throughout the years, I really just enjoy the music stand alone, and think that everyone has their own personal video (some similar, some totally different) playing in their own mind...but I must add that the vistory projects are a wonderful labour of love and I especially like the one Tom did using his own family pics (real gems) of kids skating..that one is really tops in my opinion!

I just saw the "In my fashion" video. Is that a bandage or a cast on Gordy's leg? If its a
cast-When did Gordy ever break his leg? I don't remember ever seeing or hearing about it before.

Thanks for the heads up on the Pee Wee Charles website. I'll have to join MySpace so I can keep these great videos he's posted ("Blackberry Wine" is a particular favorite)!

I found the "Shadows" video to be most interesting. A woman appears, and then every time he sings "It's a wicked wind", she is replaced (fading in and out) by a musical instrument. I'm pondering too much.

I really love the vistories that Tom and Lynn have done. I love watching them and wait anxiously to see which one is next. They have great vision. I agree that the one with his grandkids and Eva is fabulous.

I was glad that Peewee had the videos on his site, but I was really dissapointed in the quality--just bad direction/concepts. Gord looks like he has a gun to his head in all of them. Baby Step Back was probably the best one--Terry cracked me up.

Hi - I e-mailed PeeWee about the blonde, if that's the woman you are referring to. He said she was an actress hired for the video.

I second the motion! I'd pay the bucks to have that in my collection. Lots of times II download clips from You Tube or other websites, only to find that when I go back, they are unplayable.
