Default Re: My Favorite Gordon Lyrics

i agree…and its odd that Gord objected so strongly to the Grammy's wanting to crop an If You Could Read My Mind performance but he didn't mind the condensed medleys on GG.

The medley strategy and rerecording of the United Artist singles was a way that he could collect royalties instead of the former label so its was strategic business. But also gave Gord fans who already had all his LPs a chance to hear the songs with the latest studio polish and the added orchestrations, which many likely enjoyed if they hadn't heard the pure, original recordings
