I love so many of Gordon Lightfoot's songs. I usually have top lists for most artists I enjoy. For Gordon Lightfoot If You Could Read My Mind, Sundown, Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgearald, and Summer Side of Life would all be on my list but my hands down favorite is Restless. I think that the imagry of Restless is so beautiful. It is loke a poem or an image from a daydream written to a most haunting tune. I get chills listening to it.

Restless is beautiful. I learned about Gordon Lightfoot in 1972 from a boyfriend.
We lost contact and last year I found him through internet. I send him this song, which he didn't know and he emailed me back that he remembered so much from so many years ago.
One of my other favourites is Affair on 8th Avenue. "Her long flowing hair came softly undone,.. and she showed me her treasors of paper and tin,"

Gordon's music is for every mood and also the older you get the more you regonise his words, which are about life, love and lost.
The feelings I had and the boyfriends all come streaming back, depending on the song.

In the Air & Space Museum in Washington DC his words of the "Early Morning Rain" are on the wall, "see the silver bird, ow high see flies".

I have over 12 albums and have to buy a new recordplayer to hear them again.

Alice,

All GL's albums are on compact disc now. It might be cheaper to just buy the CDs. But either way, go for it.
