Dave - I thought the damn camera was recording and only when Terra was done did I realize it wasn't .I tend to hold the camera in a way that I can check it and still watch the stage..The wee REC on the dark screen is hard to see and the even smaller little bar to press to begin recording is in a spot that is hard to access.. one of the design flaws in the small cameras..everything has to be jammed into such a small camera body and even for a woman's fingers (with nails) it's a pain) She did a fab cover and we also saw her at sound check! arrghh.. I hope a video surfaces from somebody else who was there that night...

its certainly interesting to get everyone's impressions… i am not into all those minor and major 7th chords or the melody but the lyric are Lightfoot standard… maybe TG recorded that one…. Terra Lightfoot is another of Wilson's friend's….maybe they all took GO train in from Hamilton… char if you like those artists then check out the Hamilton Music Awards one year…Tom has hosted

those are pro pics…. love the Ron and Gord chat in the green room with others watching …i don't now who gal with blonde streak hair is…

i don't get the 40th Sundown award… did he get one at 25th year, or 30th and will he get one at 50th anniversary? … does it way West Jet on it?

who was the lady host?

hey i guess Billboard rules us all, but it's interesting that the concert was on Jun 29 and that when CHUM charts had the album at #4 and the single was dropping to #7

i've made a thread in the Covers section ..Brian does a wonderful job covering it raw/live even in less than ideal mic set up …but the song and talent comes through… i don't know the other artists too well …one is a studio creation

Lady host was with Harbourfront/Westjet stage people...
The impetus for the celebration was BILLBOARD having album and single as #1 FORTY years ago. Not too many occurrences of that with any other artist/album/single apparently. And it meshed with Harbourfront's 40th as well so all is good.

thanks!

i will have to check out history of harbourfront… you mean that's back when they brought in all the dirt and fill for Ont Place?

I think of that Sugar Beach etc as all new.. I don't hardy recognize anything down there..Redpath yes… i think they demo-ed an old plant a few years back… i only ever really went there for Captn John's and the Centre Island ferries … dead fish and seagulls bombing is what I recall… and homeless squeegee folks with cardboard tents under the Gardiner… actually i don't think many of the squugie gang were homeless…just looking for Molson's and weed money

that's a good trivia question…what other albums were at #1 with a single same…actually, seems like Beatles and MJ would have tons…Maria too? …i would have thought that the song SUNDOWN /would have been the finale …good chorus for it… she they salute the Summer Side of Life album then maybe they will sing Sundown finale, lol

Sugar beach is newer than the one west of there near Spadina with yellow umbrellas. That was being constructed in 2006/2007-watched it from 54th floor of condo..Harbourfront is great- Spadina over to York - deadly road construction underway tho...parts that are done are really nice. You gotta get out more.lol (ontario place opened in 1971 after several years of construction)

i could find a reference to it begin 42 years old but it's all vague and not NB … i'm sure there was funding to celebrate anyhow … it's amazing how far up Lake Ontario used to come if you look at old maps

http://www.torontoneighbourhoods.net...rfront/history

i do get out but usually go west, young man…i mean, old woman, lol

i usually go south west or north east actually… how to get east without dealing with Mississauga?!? i'm glad you and TG got there.. it would also have been quite accessible from the north GO line ..i don't know if we have any members from York Region or any from Toronto at all? happy birthday Harbourfront!

lovely stuff TG!

it's odd hearing the Watchman moved up down to G# ….and the guy with the hat playing a simple G for Sundown instead of the ringing Gord Chord voicing

the sound is full of distortion here, then distant later on ..nice clear video though

Sundown was number one on Billboard … never made it in UK, but top 10

nice work once again TG… nice pan!

I don't listen to that Tribute album much and it's been years, so I forgot BATRK did the SSOL tune on there, so now it makes sense why they might have chose it as a finale instead of something off the celebrated album, Sundown

Gord recorded in in C form with capo 2 … these guys are in D form

even doing it in C form with capo 1 might have helped Gord hit the notes, lol

I can't recall last time Gord performed it, anyone?

thanks again SO much, char and TG for a great job of bringing it to us… people take it for granted
