    see the full lyrics at:-

    In the absence of any details of concerts pre 1974 on Waynes site, I believe that my statement on my setlist page at:-
    http://www.johnfowles.org.uk/LIGHTFO..._June_1972.htm
    for the 10 June 1972 concert at London's Royal Albert Hall
    "that is a real rarity never recorded??"
    is most certainly true. Moreover I seem to recall that after the song had been sung Gord confided that that was one song they were only trying out, some make it some don't, or words to that effect so it is entirely possible that that concert was a once only airing of that great "toe tapper"
    I noted that the programme listed both Red and Terry and Gord introduced them as "on Lead Guitar Red Shea and on Second Lead guitar Terry Clements"
    in addition

    I think you are correct Mende a single possibly recorded at the same time (1962?) as the other "Early Lightfoot" singles in Nashville?)
    Note apropos another recent thread here it is by"Gordie" Lightfoot on both issues
those rare songs that Mende lists as 1965 are either from the CanadianTalent Library album or the great La Cave Cleveland Ohio live recording

That track "Two Crazy Kids" was recorded by me on my little portable cassette tape player in Eugene, Oregon in 1982. Only time I ever heard Gord do it.

I was in high school and had somehow been allowed backstage before the show, and I got to interview Gordon. Stayed in touch ever since. Funny how these mp3s make it around the world...in fact, I wonder how this got out there? I'm sure I never sent it to more than one person. Hmmm.

Sorry Mende,but my overriding memory of Fosters Lager is that it had something to do with Gnat's effluent but I did enjoy Coopers Adelaide brewed beer in Queensland and actually saw a single bottle of Coopers Lager on sale in a World Market store in Florida last week. from their website:-
"We "hopped" our way through England, Ireland, Thailand, Mexico, China, Belgium, Italy, Germany, Czech Republic, Australia and New Zealand to bring you the best brews each country has to offer.

" as for Canadian beers. in common with American beer it is essential to drink it ice cold else the underlying poor taste gets you in the gullet or somewhere. Of course the REAL ALE in my native England has to be drunk at room temp to bring out the finer elements of the superb taste of a good bitter.
My very favourite beer is Butcombr brewed in Somerset.
"Simon Whitmore, formerly Managing Director of Courage Western and before that with Guinness worldwide, set up Butcombe Brewery in old farm buildings at his family home in Butcombe, 10 miles south of Bristol, in September 1978"
I recall once at a local pub finding that the driver of the Butcombe dray was none otherbthan Mr Whitmore himself!

Although the London Pride from London brewer Fullers is very good also

and I hope to be reminded of it in May when the Hephalump and Castle pub next to the Delta Chelsea had better still have it on draught!
I just refound the story behind the use of the words Porter and stout on the Fuller'scsite at
http://www.fullers-ales.com/london_porter.php
(due to its popularirty with the stout porters at Lodon's Billingsgate and Smithfield meat markets)
I was reminded by the wine/beer department salesman in World Market of another fine UK brew:- Old speckled Hen

from Abingdon Oxfordshire,
home of the MG sports cars now unfortunately gone to that great garage in the sky the relevant history is explained on
http://www.beerhunter.com/documents/19133-000104.html
"This creature is a character in the folklore of Abingdon, and had its beginnings with another local industry, MG cars. The nickname Speckled Hen was originally applied to a demonstration model MG with a gold-flecked black body made from cellulosed fabric, produced when the marque moved to Abingdon in 1929.
When the factory celebrated its half-century, the brewery made a celebration ale -- Old Speckled Hen. Because it was created for a 50th birthday it was made to an original gravity of 1050. This figure is a measure of the density of malt sugars in the brew, but the last two numbers give a clue to the final alcohol. A beer of 1050 will usually have about 5 per cent"
yet another good 'un is Old Thumper from the Ringwood Hants brewery, whuich is also brewed very nicely by the Shipyard Brewery up in Portland Maine.
And it was very many years ago (ten??) that I found and bought the fabled beer shown below in my local Sherborne Dorset supermarket!!!

Yes well
it was a long time ago and I think I only ever bought the one bottle. but somewhere I do still have the actual labels from the bottle.
I think it was as nice a beer as you can expect from a bottle , I much prefer real beers on draught.
a google for lightfoot beer also revealed Amongst an amazing 233,000 results including :-
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/great-b...t-lager/48957/

Great Bear Lightfoot Lager
A Pale Lager brewed by
Great Bear Brewing Company
Wasilla, Alaska USA

Draft: Great Bear Brewing Co. in Wasilla, AK) Hmm, not looking forward to this one. Smells like cheap beer, grainy and corn. Tastes like cheap beer too, again with corn being the dominant flavor, and itís minimally bitter. Thin, watery palate. Pale yellow color is slightly hazy in appearance. White head shows good retention and pretty lacing. Well, I started out with the lightest, so I fully expect things to get better from here.
On draft at the brewpub 7/14/05: Hazy golden with a settled thin head. Little discernable aroma. Crispy malt cookie with a very light bitter finish. Decent smooth lager.
also:-
http://www.walkingmanbrewing.com/
lists
Lightfoot Lager
ABV 4.8% IBU 20
Our take on a German Helles. Northwest malt combined with noble Czech hops. Balanced and highly quaffable.

many reviews at:-
http://beeradvocate.com/beer/profile/4983/21033
for the UK product there are some good reviews on:-
http://www.ratebeer.com/beer/theakst...foot/875/4383/
Yet another US Lightfoot beer is described at:-
http://realbeer.com/library/archives.../whatsmri.html
"
Rhode Island
Brewer Forrest Williams of the Coddington Brewing Company, minutes from Newport in Middletown, has added a few beers to slake the thirst of the summer hordes of Beautiful People. One of the most exciting is a Lightfoot Ale, which is "loosely based on a Vienna recipe," said Williams. The brew has cara-Vienne, Munich and biscuit malts and 20 pounds of honey per 7-barrel batch. It is lightly hopped with Columbus hops. "I wanted to brew a beer that wasn't handcuffed to one style," said Williams. "I was tired of making a golden over and over."
but it is no longer featured on that brewery's website
Although many tasty brews are listed on:-

The problem with nearly all of these free file storage sites like the one young Mende used here
(http://www.sendspace.com),

whilst they most certainly have their uses , they very often have restrictive limits/rules you must follow to avoid the site owners, not wishing to host many ultrabytes of files until the end of all time, (or at least beyond the12th of Never). delete them.
I have in mind another of my famous tutorials on the subject of free web sites for which there are almost literally millions of hosts.
The problems with most of then are that they have one or more of the following disadvantages/nag factors:-

  1. Obscure or unatractive website names
  2. Obscure or lengthy linking file names
  3. Obtrusive banner or popup advertising
  4. Limited bandwidth ( so that the site is locked if too many downloads take place in a specified period)
  5. Limited total free storage
  6. Limited maximum file uploads allowed
  7. no "hotlinking" allowed (useless for most file storage/sharing)
Having spent many hours googling for suitable free sites
(If you google for "free web sites" you will at the moment get a staggering 171 million results
and there is not enough time left on my slate to look at more than a few of those.)
I have used a great variety and discarded most, but two stand out as being most useful and reliable
they are run by the same internet outfit
Ripside Interactive, Inc.
P.O. Box 541246
Omaha, NE 68154-1246
they are
http://www.ripway.com

and the almost identical
http://www.fileave.com


and these are my reasons for recommmending them


  1. Easy site names examples
  2. http://h1.ripway.com/johnfowles/
    http://johnfowles.fileave.com/
  3. in their "my files"feature every file is listed together with its address (URL) which is a logical use of your original filename in whatever folder on the site you have set up
    example (1.17MB only)
    http://h1.ripway.com/johnfowles/T-12...oAustralia.mp3
    and it is a simple task to create folders and then to move any file from one place to another
  4. absolutely no advertising
  5. reasonably generous bandwidth limits of
    (ripway 150MB daily)
    (fileave 1024GB per month)
  6. ample total web/storage space:-
    (ripway: 30MB)
    (fileave 50MB)
  7. 10 Mb maximum uploadable files (both) (covers the majority of mp3s even at 192KBPS quality)
  8. Hotlinking definitely allowed
There is only one caveat that I can think of. One has on be on the ball and set up a schedule for logging on because

Note: Accounts that are inactive for over 30 days will be removed. Please log in at least once a month to keep your account active.
Obviously they hope that some users of the free service will want to upgrade to one of their hosting plans , which are by no mean the best available.
Of course if all you want to do is store pictures then the free picture hosting sites are probably better and easier to use as well as providing other useful features like resizing and the necesary codes for linking on a forum such as this one
Moreover if you register then you can also readily see thumbnails of every picture you have uploaded there
I have never had a problem with
