Hello. I'm new here. Just stumbled on to this site a few days ago and I've been reading as many posts as I can. Honestly, I never thought I could see so many people with the same adoration for GL as I do. Just to hear some of these song titles (Mother of a Miners Child) brings joy and memories back to my heart. My h likes country and my 3 teenage sons like well, gangsta rap, top 40, and punk rock. Where did I go wrong?

I grew up listening to Gordon Lightfoot and faithfully got ever album up to Salute. I really need to catch up don't I?

When I hear any of his songs on the radio, I simply want to shout to anyone around me. "Hey pay attention! This is a great song! Listen!" But I just try to enjoy the moment. I'm glad to be here.

Thanks for the warm welcome. I've been lucky enough to see GL in concert 4 times. First in Spokane, Wash in 1974?. I was 15 and I had tickets to both shows, about 3 rows from the front. I waited backstage forever to meet him, finally he came out and I got to say hello. I was so star struck. He said something to me and for the life of me, I just didn't hear what he said. I didn't want to say "Huh?" so I just smiled and he went on. I still wonder what he said.

Then I saw him again in 76, I believe. It was in Vancover. Then all the way to 85 in Kansa City. Then the last time I saw his face was in Columbia Mo a few years ago. It was wonderful, he sang everything and even took requests. It was great.

Welcome, Sentimental.

I happily stumbled upon this site a few months ago. Yes, it is great to find other people with the same love and appreciation of GL's music as yourself. You will really enjoy visiting and posting on this site. The other people who post here all seem really friendly and nice. I get the same feeling from visiting here as I do from listening to GL's music -- a sense of warmth and comfort.

Hi Sentimental,

I seem to keep doing this, but I must SERIOUSLY encourage you to buy Songbook. It is the most incredible set you can find. All sorts of amazing, never-before released songs, comments by the man himself about them. You will love it, I guarantee it!
Welcome,

Rona

Welcome Sentimental. I think a lot of us thought we were alone til we found this site. It's nice to have a place to go where others share the love you have of the music.
Again, welcome, it's good to have you here.

Thanks everyone, I DO feel welcome.

Are there any recordings of GL singing Tennessee Stud? I know he didn't write it but I've heard him sing it in concert and I loved his version of it.

There is no official recording of Tennesse Stud, it does exist in some people's private collections however.

Too bad about no official recordings of that song. Just curious really.

Thanks for asking about my shop. It's a little, and I do mean little (~800sq') vintage boutique in a wonderful 1895 building just off a downtown square. I'm just getting a website set up and soon there will be online buying. Should have been done months ago, but I'm slow to learn these things. John, how do you know this already?

I do have a GL poster in my storage room, I bought it off ebay. It's probably a repro but I still like it.
