Default People Magazine

Did anyone notice the ad in People Magazine this week with all the pictures of the inductees to the Songwriters Hall of Fame? It's the issue with Snookie on the cover, page 37. No new pictures, but still nice to see Gordon in there.

Off for a wild weekend with Char in the big city! We might even stay up till midnight!!!

goodness gracious! I stopped getting people magazine because they keep putting people like "snookie" on the cover. Now I am going to actually have to go to a store and buy that issue of people magazine in front of people who might know me! yikes! couldn't Gordon have been put into an issue that didn't include that dimwit?
p.s. I still have an early 80's issue of people with a much more pleasant cover. somewhere inside is a positive review of a new Gordon Lightfoot album... I wonder if I even know where that magazine is...(probably not!)

another ps. have a fun trip. i envy you.

Thelma and Louise take Manhattan! lol

it's always great to hear anecdotes following your rendezvous...it's essentially a mini Waterbuffalo convention, but you guys wear moose antlers instead of horns

I used to buy People every week...it was an embarrassing little addiction, but I thought of it as a relatively harmless guilty pleasure. My son Matt finally got me to kick the habit, although I am still allowed to look over a copy if I am in a waiting room where they are lying around. I may just have to schedule an appointment soon

I'll be not-so-patiently-waiting to hear if Gord puts any of those tunes he's pulling "out of the vault" into the rotation in NY.

Glad Thelma & Louise will be in NY and not in Arizona......and not in a convertible.......

He should let his fans pick which ones should go back into the vault

I hope the gems survive the cut. Helplessly hoping

Wow, sitting with Wayne! He was gonna ask Gord or Rick if Les Pouliot was still alive.

Nice cryptic, char. So no Go Go Girl yet. Funny that he said he was not big on the song but is bringing it back as one of the only true oldies. He expressed that after Keelor covered it. Maybe Gord is more open ears these days. Bravo.

Does Wayne bring along Courtney? Have fun, gals

I confuse Fading Away (the poppy keyboard riff) with I'd Rather Press On (nice acoustic guitar solo).

Next tour request: Only Love Would Know

Lol. I've been waiting years for you to set me up like that, heh


...the polka dot undies face/look down is humourously similar to stubbed my toes look. I remember being taken back twice when first hearing the WFY album.

Awesome, awesome, awesome!

5 vault treasures! I love it.

Counting the days 'til the Kentucky shows. I'll be there with bells on (but I won't ring them).

??Who and Where James?? As anticipated Wayne very promptly posted the Friday setlist from B.B.Kings on his website. Although I have Saturday's setlist saved safely in text file form I will not steal Char or Jenney's thunder by posting it myself
instead I will post the following update

Apparently revisiting those old rotational items was entirely Gord's idea
four of those five got another workout at Tarrytown Village NY last night
I had a feeling that at least one of the five was a song not previously performed live on stage or television so I have again refound Jones the Younger's list at:-
http://www.corfid.com/vbb/showpost.p...5&postcount=22
"soooo, there we have it...the list of standard recording that have not been played live, to the best our collective knowledge?:
refresher the last published list was in April 2009 when it comprised these 39 songs:-
Slide on Over
The Soul is The Rock
Brave Mountaineers
Ordinary Man
A Passing Ship
Ecstasy Made Easy
You Just Gotta Be
Sometimes I Don't Mind
End Of All Time
Flyin' Blind
No Mistake About It
Sometimes I Wish
Cobwebs Dust (despite a false listing on the artwork of the 1976 Montreux Festival bootleg!!)
Poor Little Allison
Changes
Oh, Linda
Peaceful Waters
Pride of Man
Rich Man's Spiritual
The First Time Ever I Saw Your Face
Farewell to Annabel
Lazy Mornin'
Mother of a Miner's Child
Without You
She's Not The Same
Cabaret
Love & Maple Syrup
Nous Vivons Ensemble
Redwood Hill
Same Old Loverman
Talking in Your Sleep
Is There Anyone Home
Somewhere USA
Crossroads
Go Go Round
Home from The Forest
If You Got It
I'll Be Alright
I'd Rather Press On
Four sings (bout 10%) may now be removed
Two were memorably featured in that fantastic 1971/1972 BBC concert as reaired in 2011
Nous Vivons Ensemble and Talking In Your Sleep
And of course in honour of The Hawk Home From The Forest has recently had a good run
Now I'd Rather Press On has now been performed twice
Hopefully Go Go Round will get a rightful reinvigorating soon

Yesterday I had to take my car in because of a strange noise it was making. In the waiting room were several recent issues of People magazine, but sadly, not the one from Sept 17. So I am now completely up to speed with Prince Harry, Honey Boo Boo, and what Macaulay Culkin is doing these days, but I still haven't seen the Songwriters HOF announcement.

A least they were able to fix the problem with my car.

And they fixed my car even though the noise that prompted me to take the car in had stopped by the time I got there
