Default 'Salute'

Sorting out my CDs, I came across Salute. It had been slotted in at the bottom
of the rack.
Slotting it in my Tascam CD player, I am surprised I stopped playing it.

'Whispers of the North' pulled me in immediately.
Lesson to be learnt here.
Give ALL GL's CDs a chance !

I like the "Salute" album. The title track is phenomenal. Other faves are "Biscuit City", "Without You", "Whispers Of The North", "Knotty Pine" and "Broken Dreams".

'Salute' is still probably my favorite album of Gord's. He had given up the alcohol that was killing him in '82, so this album presents a 'fresh start' for him!! If you look at his face on the cover, you can see the ravages of alcohol on him.

It's the first one I had him autograph back in 1999.

Obviously no hit songs from it, but I just love the song set as a whole.

'Tatoo' may possibly be my favorite GL song!!

I love "Salute." Sadly it got NO airplay where we live (Phila., PA). I blame that on the local radio stations. If we hadn't attended Gord's summer concert supporting the album in 1983, we wouldn't have known about it. I bought it the day after the concert!
