Default Re: Springfield IL Sept. 29, 2018 setlist

Yes, 'Imported Ordinary Man' , your set list is correct. However, 'Restless Feeling' is simply titled, 'Restless'.

The venue played the album 'East Of Midnight' as the audience was getting seated. Quote from Gordon to myself a few years ago : "It's my best album." However you view the album, Gordon considers it his best work - gotta have respect for it for that.

After 'I'd Rather Press On', Gordon talked about using a capo during the folk revival. "It's how I got my sound . I think." (got a laugh)

After 'Did She Mention My Name', Gordon talked about using shorter versions of songs to get more songs in per concert. "You would have to be deeply involved in my entire catalogue to notice the difference."

After 'Now And Then', Gordon took a drink from the white bottle and said, "Next thing you know, I'll be in a Biotene advertisement."

After 'If You Could Read My Mind', Gordon said, "Thank you. That one hauls a lot of water." (probably his figure of speech for a song that has made a tremendous impact on his career) In my opinion, Gordon always sounds his best on 'IYCRMM', no matter what his voice is doing that night!

Before the encore, Gordon said, "It ain't gonna be like Vegas .. a short show and five encores."

One comment on Kim's pictures : The shot that is labeled 'heading back on stage for the 2nd set' - Gordon actually wore the dark blue jacket for the 2nd set (as has been stated in the above review). I love the pictures, Kim. Keep them coming!!!

Was nice to meet up with fellow 'Corfidians' Kevin and Erin Hester and Tim Quinn and his son, Tim. (never got our picture together!! - next time)

This was the 24th show for my wife and I since spring of 1991. We told Gordon as we were getting ready to leave that we are looking forward to #25.
