Re: 1962 - Lightfoot and The Two Tones - Audio CD

While there is one track on there that I have not heard, I do wonder if it's just like someone took the recordings I already have on my computer and put them onto a CD?

Still, for those who...

Hah, I just noticed the question.

The answer to that question. For most music fans I'm sure that changes all the time. And this has for me as well regarding GL over the years. With such a...

Re: Tony Rice

It's rather ironic, because I recently decided I needed to fill some gaps in my already-extensive collection of GL covers. I knew that Tony had done more than had been collected on that one album,...

Re: Me and Bobby McGee

I don't know if it was the regional accent or what, but Gord has had a few "alternate pronunciations" over the years. Not sure if it was choice, habit or what. I'm sure I'm not the only one that,...

Re: Favourite Song on "Solo" Album

I'm glad to hear I'm not the only one who glommed onto "Do You Walk , Do You Talk" as the one that most caught my ear from this set. I'm not sure if I'd call it the best song of the bunch, but I...

Re: NEW BOOK!-ONCE UPON A RED EYE-Life on the road with Gordon Lightfoot-Richard Hari

yeah I was being flippant above, but I'm sure there was some, uhh, "deeper content" and that the language presented in the published story may have been soft-pedalled a bit.

Re: NEW BOOK!-ONCE UPON A RED EYE-Life on the road with Gordon Lightfoot-Richard Hari

One thought I had after reading it... It seemed to me that the book was intentionally written around a PG-13 rating, makes me wonder what the R-rated version would be like!

Re: CRYSTAL GAYLE and Ribbon of Darkness on her new LP

Modern country I don't care much for , but this leans more retro to my ears, so I have no issues with it. I'd be much more bothered if it was a Country Rap version!
