Default Re: A New "Lightfoot Lovesongs" CD

yeah, Sir, you put your finger on the Gord song type CD comps that I fancy: denouement (or as I call them, post mortums) ...Changes was perhaps the first recording that hooked me (if My Love For You can be considered a Gord tune then so can this I suppose)

I dug up an older comp that has my 2nd, 3rd, etc choices on it:
Changes
Talking In Your Sleep
The Circle Is Small
I'm Not Supposed To Care
Looking At The Rain
Miguel
Never Too Close
On The High Seas
I'll Prove My Love
Only Love Would Know
It's Worth Believin' (ah, bru...everything a song should be )

not sure if this complicates things further, I'm still trying to make my way through the 1000 year abbey timeline ....hey, great pic and font on the first CD, JFo ....terrific Lavender line, certainly....yes, that sportcoat and scene does somehow look Christmassy...I'd like a coat like that...wow, it's almost December

don we now our Gord apparel...

JJ - indeed, IWB - perfect. But prob. my No.1 is 'I'm Not s'posed to Care' ... whenever I hear it, I weep. P'haps because it reminds of my youthful stupidity ... *sigh* ... but it is so difficult to choose a No. 1.

...new list coming up shortly with the changes/additions, whew! I'm beginning to understand why Gord doesn't want to go into the studio and produce a new CD...

Hey slow down everybody ,I am struggling with this accursedly slow witted dial up connection , which means that by the time I have loaded uo the thread at any moment then revised this draft reply and got the quote to come up then paster then waited for the page to reload, then try to correct my inevitable typos a dozen more replies have been made and I have to start the whole sorry business over phew!!
let's try again
OK I guess we could argue and debate the exact CD contents until Kingdom come whatever that means!
I have now withdrawn Spin Spin very apt though it is IMHO in favo(u)r of I"ll Tag Along., on the strength of CHar's brilliant justification
(reminds me my response to Deb's comment
Quote:

is that I did not realise how like a Christmas card that Inspiration Lady screenshot is and yes at the time early 2004 that he made that video no doubt Gord was ruminating on the break up with Elizabeth, and he was not yet over the Moon so to speak in that regard and had yet to make his famous "Ring Ring" call to CHar!!!

Now as for the track times the solution was staring at you and I suspect Ruth realised that fact
I admittedly had to make mp3s to do it but unless I find a similarly simple program to mp3indx.exe that will work with a folder full of wav's that is to my mind an easy and elegant way to go. In fact having now exchanged "tag" for "spin" the revised TRT for my suggested 24 is still in line with a CD-R's capcity viz:

Note as I think yoiun subsequently did Ruth that the value shown after every file is in fact its running time in minutes and seconds.
As far as the date of the recording you can either I suggest check the circle P year on the CD rear insert
for example I see that "EOM" was1986 and use that or subtract one if you have good reason to believe it was the year before, or consult the oracle/cornucopia at:-
http://www.lightfoot.ca/albrecno.htm
where Wayne states the recording dates of every album
(My Love For You is obviously pre the film release date)

Thanks Jimmy
the font is actually the one used on the Songbook box set and after scanning the Gordon Lightfoot from the case I submitted it to the fantastic WF (What The Font} site as described on the old "Wolfgang's Vault" thread I resurrected yesterday, and from there I found that it is footlight MT Light I then found a free download of the True Type Font (ttf) file and attach it to this for anybody interested to dowload and then copy to their c:\windows\font folder
Now I AM going to attempt to burn my latest 24 selection and then get on with a sample rear tray insert artwork
And finally since Deb has kindly sabotaged my cover design by withdrawing Inspiration Lady I am forced to change my own number one to IL.
Now would some kind soul nominate "The First Time" else the love song trilogy is kaput!!!

The deadline is Noon, Central TIme, USA, on Monday, Dec. 3rd, to make any changes. You're on your own figuring out what time that might be in your neck of the woods. This is getting interesting! Will post an update shortly, but maybe I should start deleting the old lists. Do ya think?

Assuming that under "Here's the possible additions to the CD" listing are tunes that one might consider to replace their original choice : I offer "If Children Had Wings". I'm not making a change, and I think the original 20 were excellent.

ahh, good selection, B.... not sure if that falls under the love or not love category, heh

reminds me of another fun thread, perhaps the Duets team seletions could be refreshed so as to bring them up to date with current events, maybe add more and someone design new cover for the original must have alienated many international or new members...it's dated

also, perhaps JFo's seasonal CD cover could replace the old Xmas CD, plus revise/add tunes

hunting through some archives I also found the rap CD plus others, speaking of controversial

cheers & goodluck with CD homestretch, gitch...your cover sounds like job for the zoner

jj (umm, deb, okok, I WAS wrong...ya better archive this admission, i rarely confess...lol)

ps) Sir, never know about What the Font...interesting, maybe I need to put the G5 online

I was rather alarmed today to see that an opportunistic ebay seller identity manaver3961
from Ohio was offering a third copy of the so called "Whisper My Name" CD I have previously displayed the artwork for in my thread about "lazy ebay"as an example of poor font selection
This is an audio only version of the well known PBS Soundstage 1979 Video and is therefore likewise an ROIO (Recording Of Independant Origin) for which no payment gets made to the artist
The three auctions are the current one that started today ending on December3 item number 320189998953
starting bid US$19.99
and a pair of completed auctions
item 320186947815 ended November 26
and item 320184283441 ended november 20
for allt hree auctions the seller cheekily claims
"Comes shrink wrapped with full color factory inserts." Oh yeah
Both completed auctions ended with a single bid for the $19.99 but
this means that this character is making $60 a month on the side
It got me thinking
in my initial posting to this thread I carefully said
"OK I expect everybody has at one time or another wanted to burn their own favo(u)rite's CD and as far as I know it is perfectly legal to make your own compilation CD from favourite tracks on CDs that you own. but not to then distribute it of course."
but this sort of behaviour is quite obviously illegal.
It then occurred to me that our task here is providing such reprehensible people with more material
In addition our public display of artwork based in copyright images is also most likely illegal and I for one do not relish the thought of somebody using my artwork to aid their criminal activities and putting money in their pockets.I have therefore replaced my two offerings in this thread with a suitable "image not available" graphic. However I hope the more creative of you have now got the general idea and inspiration, and I can see no harm in continuing to discuss a track selection that is purely for our own benefits and pleasure, and I intend returning with my promised free software guide to help anybody wanting to try their hand at their own artwork. Perhaps we can all eventually private message our best efforts to the Mother Superior,who could if she so desired then send out multiple PMs displaying which one is in her opinion is the winner
(it was her idea so Ruth should be the sole judge IMHO)

hmmm, only speaking for myself, should any wiseguy plan on using any of the light-hearted pic parodies I've shared over the past decade as part of of his criminal activities, well, I'd like to think they atleast cut me in on a piece of the action ...honestly, I'm thinking the chances are slim and none ...onward, enjoy

How thoughtless of me...
I have been driving to work for almost a month enjoying "Spin Spin" and then I select a different song...

This is a great topic.

Sad that someone is capitalizing on an artist's art.
Very much the reason I jumped out of commercial art back when dinosaurs still roamed the earth. I enjoy my art now as a topic of personal thought.

Out of respect for Barry Harvey, I will return to this topic next week. May he forever rest in peace. Love and comfort to all who hold Barry dear. May a song of love help to ease the pain during this difficult time.

Default Re: A New "Lightfoot Lovesongs" CD

Hello everyone, here we go!

THE LIST is finally final!! I have taken it upon myself to choose what I would like as the first three songs on the CD, as well as the last song. The rest we need to figure out a sensible order, how to fit them onto the CD(s), etc. Are there any unwritten rules in doing this? If not, then may I suggest that we mix it up, and not have the songs run chronologically.

I have begun working on an insert for the CD case which will include all of the other nominated songs, perhaps a small tribute to Barry, and anything else that anyone would like to include or suggest.

Please PM me any possible album covers. This was Sir John’s suggestion and I happen to agree with him. I will make sure to PM all who have participated with the final selection. And of course, we are free to print and use whatever artwork we choose for the cover, but I think it’s kind of fun to have an “official” cover.

If anybody sees any mistakes or can think of anything I have forgotten, please let me know.

Thanks Jesse.

If my math is correct, I have a total running time of 74:03. That would be including 10 seconds at the beginning, 10 seconds at the end, and 10 seconds between the songs.

Why isn't "Nous Vivons Enseble" included? That song's very romantic.

It's only 3:45 too.

Hi Borderstone, each person only got one nomination (yours is My Love For You) and I limited it to the first 21 people who responded. I will be sure to include it in the "other songs nominated" section of the insert, and of course, you can surely include it on your own CD if you wish.

OK Jimmie is being his usual modest self. in fact for recent new members and those with, as Paul Simon memoriably put it "short attention spans" the three thumbs he has displayed recently were only a part of a project to develop a range of Lightfoot fantasy themed albums to which Love Songs is a worthy addition.
the earlier ones were inspired by an innocent question 3 years ago now about Gord's "Christmas" album ,
"I heard a Christmas song by Gordon Lightfoot this week. I don't know the name of it, but would love to have it.. Does anyone know of this song?"
so it is very relevant to resurrect the old thread at this time of the year. As soon as I post this I will bring the old thread at:-
question
back to the top.
I was very impresed by the subsequent responses and at the time I saved the whole lot to my hard drive in a new folder that I named
Master Not Songbook stuff
I always intended to create a suitably modified box set err umm box to put the resulting fictitious CDs in and here is the front of it.:-

OK now to write the other post and add a pet fantasy album project of my own
