Default Photo-London 1969

Gordon Lightfoot looking pretty chuffed and cool in suede jacket and patterned pants, following his triumphant debut on a British stage, June 2, 1969 at London’s Royal Festival Hall. The Daily Telegraph’s review of his concert praised his songs about rail hands and jailbirds, city life and country love: "[Lightfoot] has a rare talent for the creation of curiously luminous songs and for giving his most intensely personal lyrics intricate and unhackneyed shapes. He succeeds above all without sentimentality and without one false note in voicing something strangely beautiful and moving about Canada, from the mountains to the little general store."

In June 1969, I didn’t know Gordon Lightfoot even existed.
It was the Swinging Sixties and I was spending time in Oxford’s ‘Carnaby Street’,
Little Clarendon Street.
Trendy clothes shops, coffee bars and a record shop (with Acoustic Research speakers) and lots of pretty girls. In mini skirts.
I wonder if there were any GL records in the record shop...
