Howsabotu discussing a favourite time in his career?.
Personally, I like the DQ to shadows period, and especially the EW to Shadows period. It's amazing how those 3 albums from 79-83 haven't been released on CD when they are my favourite albums!

Joveski,good question.
Looking at it objectively.
You have to say 70-75, was his best and most successful period.
I personally, like the early 80's period.
Even though, it was an unhappy time for him.
Sometimes pain, inspires great work.
Which I think was the case then.

Count me in for the period from Summer Side of Life through Summertime Dream. Not a bum in the lot (not that there's a bum in whole GL lot, but these albums are outstanding).

Favorite GL period-a very hard question to answer. The mid 70's were the best as far as being profitable for him but I honestly feel 2000 is my favorite. I feel he enjoys performing more now than ever since his life is on an even pace. True, he may not beable to hit some of the high notes but we are able to listen to all of his songs from the last four decades.

I guess I like the entire evolution of Gordon. I love the old, rough, original recordings of the 60's but also love the re-recordings with strings etc. he did later on. I do think the recording quality of some of the late 70'and 80's material is questionable. For some reason it seems like someone was asleep at the board for some of the songs. To me, Gords Gold II is somewhat suspect in terms of mix, etc. This may sound like a contradiction, because the 60's stuff is pretty raw, but somehow that is different, and I think very cool. I must say, I do love it all. This certainly is a unique site where only us Gordoholics can weigh in on all of these great topics. Thanks!

Favorite Lightfoot era? By far 1965-1976

Look into his shining eyes and if you see a ghost don't be surprised......Listen to the strings. That jangle and dangle while the old guitar sings.

I agree with chris on this one. I like Gord from start to now.

My favorite would've been(if I had been a fan at that time) the start of the 90's because it was at that time he found new energy and decided not to retire.

I'd have to say 1966-1974... Some great stuff in there.

"Summer Side Of Life" through "Shadows" is my favorite period. 1993's "Waiting For You" is also one of my favorite albums. Love the sound of his voice and what that album is about. "Restless" is one of the best songs that he has written.

Not a bad topic to bring back to life.

I have to agree with you Tom. I have been listening since 1968,but I think the three albums in that area (DSR,Shadows and Salute) are his most creative work both in the writing and recording areas.

To narrow it down to a period I'd say those releases from 1969 through 1978 (Sunday Concert to Endless Wire, I think) But I've said it here before if he said he was going to read a telephone book on stage I'd buy two tickets and sit through the whole thing. I enjoy every track he's laid down for some reason or other. But I also believe it has a lot to do with when you first heard him, the circumstances when the inprinting on your brain took place. You scientists out there can fill in those details, LOL.
