Yep, I am a night owl, my Canadian friend

This morning, I stopped in to take a look at the board and I thought you called me an OLD bat...lol.
Then, I put my reading glasses on and it said Owl, Bats...blah, blah...lol

I was about ready to take the midnight train to Moncton and smack you silly, Jesse Joe

Yes, Spanish Moss is great! Brian did a wonderful version of that song.

Yes, it was nice of him to dedicate it to the Corfidians...of course, now he is one of us

Char, John, or anyone that goes to those Massey Reunions, you should invite this great singer to your next one. Man oh Man can he sing good.

Great job once again Brian.

I added the Joe Mills and Brian duet to Brian's thread a while back but notice the whole thread somehow vapourized

I like that he does some of the non-standard covers like MTMS, ONTS, DK, etc...he and Joe should try a few more

YouTube - Brian E. & Joe Mills - Cold on the shoulder - Gordon Lightfoot - cover

YouTube - Gordon Lightfoot (cover) Much To My Surprise 1 2009 04 25 23 04 16

YouTube - Gordon Lightfoot "On the High Seas" (cover) 2 2009 02 11 21 16 21

YouTube - Gordon Lightfoot Spanish Moss (cover)

YouTube - Gordon Lightfoot's Go My Way cover by Brian E

YouTube - Daylight Katy 3 2009 03 16 22 00 48


note: I can't edit the Subject it seems...his name is actually "BrIAn"

I see the moderator corrected your typo. When I first saw it, I thought.....'oh no.....now the bots are able to start threads'.

i recall my first LATR listening (it wasn't on a very good music system but it sure sounded fine to me)...thanks for reviving that moment with your sedating version...nice to see someone standing (vs seated) and performing, like Gord-ish

Hello JJ.
The collaboration was suggested by Joe after we had been commenting back and forth on our videos. He did the arranging and editing (I'm no tech.) I sent him a recording via "Transfer Big Files, (don't use it, it had a virus) and he somehow overdubbed the rest. I was jazzed to see and hear it. I would love to do more with him, but I don't know if he has the time. He is quite popular in Bavaria I believe, and deservedly so. I do know he had a skiing accident a while back, and endured a slow recovery. It's nice to see him back. Perhaps a request would nudge him along? Hopefully, we will do more someday, as several people have asked. He is a very nice gentlemen.
Take care,

Brian

Default Re: Brian E. sings Gordon Lightfoot / A Great Voice !

it's really getting hard to pick a fave Brian performance, he picks all my true faves...and such steady meter...if I knew how to download even the audio alone, I'd make a comp of his finest, assuming I could narrow it down to an hours worth

would be a treat to have this gent at Massey/pubjam sometime

He once told me that he was thinking of going this year, but it was not is final answer. He also ask me if I was going, but I told him I never attended a Massey reunion, and I also said if your going do bring your guitar.
