Default Great Vintage Lightfoot Video

Thanks to Patti's post on Yusef (still Cat to me), I searched under G.L's name in Daily Motion. Lo and behold, there was CRT, featuring a young Gord and co. singing live , interspersed with railroad photographs. I have never seen this video before. I plan to visit again and see what other gems are there. I'd drag it here if I were not so technically challenged.
It's well worth watching.

Brian

Yes Jessie Joe, and thanks. Although I guess many have seen this before, it's a great clip that's brand new to me.

Thanks again,
Brian

Your quite welcome Brian, it use to be on You Tube, but was removed. Thanks for finding this gem again. It may not stay on for long tho ??

It was from The Johnny Cash Show...

jjo, pasted below is from another recent post...RJ needs to know we have room and time to take in his 2 or 3 pages more of 60s anecdotes! he was at the Stompin Tom taping at the Horseshoe also...I wouldnt be surprised if he was at Newport when Gord laid down his set (and Bob went eclectic, err electric)

We were lucky enough to be seated directly in front of the band and it was that night he sang "Face of a Thousand People" which I'd never heard before but was immediately hooked on that song.

Reading the lyrics it's not to difficult to see that this man was ahead of his time.

The Lightfoot era was in full swing then so it really was a mind blowing experience just being there.

It was a time when the bar, coffee house scene was exiting and the concert hall experience was being born for Gordon Lightfoot and us all.

Of course at that time and living in Toronto there' a host of other memories that I can relate to but we'd probably need to go into page 2 and maybe 3 to get them all in.

...

Cheers, RJ.

ok question:

how may other video sites like youtube, daily motion are out there? any pros or cons to each?

note: the Softly, For Lovin Me and Ribbon of Darkness clips from the Cash show are still up at youtube...Gord has that same hair (needing some cream rinse, no?)

I wouldn't know about the sites, and the cream rinse... funny !

As for Ron J, that's pretty cool.

That's a real good video. Glad you found that one, Brian. I had seen that it was over there, but didn't know that it had removed from youtube. Yes, it is well worth watching.
