Default Lightfoot Concert dates 1965-1973

Wayne Francis's site has concert dates from 1974. Is it possible to get the earlier ones...just for the record...(pun)????

If anyone can help out it would be great. I uploaded a document with some dates from 1962 to 1973. This I pieced it together from info from GL's two biography books.

Nice list John. I'll steal it :-) I have a live recording of Lightfoot dated 27 January 1966 - Ottawa - that is definitely outdoors and is just Gord and Paul Wideman on bass. Add that.

Of course you are perfectly correct Mende but alas the fault this time is not one of my inevitable typos but is due to a most odd and stupid and quite unfathomable quirk of the forum program.
the URL of my "old setlists" page is quite simply exactly as displayed, but if you mouse over it on this forum page you can see that it gets needlessly modified as can be seen in at lower left in a popup as captured in the screenshot below

which shows that my correctly typed in URL has an extranious prefix of corfid.com/vbb
therefore if you click the link as it is at present you'll get this message in a popup
Not Found
 
The requested URL /vbb/johnfowles.org.uk/LIGHTFOOT/oldsetlists.htm was not found on this server.
I will drop a PM to Florian to let him know about this silly idiosynchrasy
I have just tried a test on the Test forum pasting in the correct URL
and over there it worked fine
yet if I try right clicking the link on my posting as it is still displayed in this thread when viewing it in Internet Exloder then select "copy shortcut" this is what I get
http://corfid.com/vbb/johnfowles.org.uk/LIGHTFOOT/oldsetlists.htm
the unwanted corfid.com/vbb prefix is there as you can see
so that it will be no help copying and pasting from that display
I will try again now from scratch by pasting into this reply the absolutely correct URL as recently succesfully used on the Test forum to see what transpires!
 
http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/lightfoot/oldsetlists.htm

See what I mean can somebody please tell me in words of one syllable what the heck the difference is between my original link that patently ain't working and the correct link that appears at the very bottom of my last posting (after the word transpires) and functions as intended
Whatever it has reminded me to revise both my 88 concerts list
(now a heady 89) and add a few more old setlists to the page and generally clean those pages up a brit
when done I will report back
I then intend contacting avid collector Suzi to see if we can update the list of ROIOs (Recordings Of Independent Origin) I still have one from 2005 my how the time has flown

Apologies Char for not replying before
What I said is absolutely correct
Boy was I in the right Place at the right time or what?
I actually wrote the setlist down on my program for the May 68 concert and I have a positive audible record of both the Oct 8 and the April 69 P Des A events but not of the Jim one (which was shortly before I left Montreal that November to return to England). I also have some yellowing cuttings of the Montreal Star reviews.

OK Ill try to produce a scan of the program ASAP.
As for the audio stuff I have some work to do on it, then I propose sharing it using a dropbox account that will involve getting dropbox to send by email an invitation to share relevant folder.
Therefore what I propose is to announce the availability and ask those interested to send me a Private Message which includes their email address
By the way Suzi in San Diego I believe that you already have all of my Montreal stuff
