Wow, this is the closest to the voice of Gord I've ever heard. He picks a fine guitar as well. Would love to hear him do a twelve string number.

Thanks so much Jesse Joe for providing this for our enjoyment. Ron J.

Your more than welcome Ron, his 6 string looks like a Martin with a Dean Markley wooden pick up. Im kind of waiting for a 12 string in one of his future videos ?

He is really good. I love the song "Go My Way". I have never heard it before...it's lovely.
Of course, Gordon has a knack for writing lovely songs.

Really, this guy is great to listen to. Thanks, Jesse Joe

I got this email from Brian this morning:


Thanks for the invitation Jessie Joe. I will certainly take a look. I appreciate the kind words.

I have just dusted off my guitar after not playing much for a few years. I hope to improve with time, and will post more as long as there's someone who'll listen.

Cordially,

Brian E

Anne if ever you hear Gordon Lightfoot sing "Go My Way," on the Album "Summer Side Of Life"...(1971) You will see that Brian sounds very close to the Poet Genius himself.

Ron, is this by chance, Ottawa Mike's friend? (following his recording of the 2006 Delta Sessions, he sent me an mp3 of a fella who sounds more like Gord than Gord does, lol)

my hard drive was wiped clean by a 'worm' since then so I no longer have it or Mike's contact info...just wonderin....anyhow, keep em comin, Brian!

...btw, i think I saw Brian in the ACC crowd at Wendel night

Hi JJ
Mike from ottawa here no this isnt Fred Werthman (the mp3 I sent way back when). I eventually did send the entire album that we recorded to him in mp3 format and it was the only copy he had.
Unfortunately both my laptop and music computer crashed within months of each other and I lost most of my music projects, including all the original recordings from 2006. backups backup and backups.
So when I get the time I go back and copy the cd's I ve recorded for others download them to my pc.
here is my email info countrylane_music@yahoo.com
take care

that's ashame, Mike....such fine work you put into those recordings and I'm sure a slew of other artist's works...I know the digital let down feeling, ugh!

I had about 100 hours (of 125 hour max storage) of musical recordings on my PVR, some of which I downloaded to DVD but most lost when the thing crashed

i think we need to all go back to reel to reel, lol

i wonder if i ever forwarded that particular mp3 of Fred to char? she is a archive genius and may have it still...i can't remember filename or tune

btw, that's a really wonderful version of YLR, Brain....thanks jessi

He dedicated it to us, The Corfidians...keepers of the treasure

Ummm.....I think I am remembering that right...lol.

Anyway, here you go Jesse Joe and all the rest of you lazy Corfidians that require sleep.

Night
Anne

Edited to say that it is "Faithful guardians of the treasure"

I was close. whaddya expect from a sleepy woman at 2:15 A.M.
