Default Concord NH 3 October year 2010 as my talking watch puts it

After a pleasant drive throught the Vermont and New Hampshire fall (autumn) foliage, with a short detour to sample Ben And Gerry's ice cream and some Cabot cheese we reched Concord NH and met up again with Jenney
Compared to the concert in Burlington the concert this following evening's concert had no such surprises and so it was business as usual and the setlist for October the 3rd at the Capitol Center in Concord NH was
1.Did She Mention My Name
2 Carefree Highway
3.Sea Of Tranquility
4.14 Karat Gold
5.Never Too Close
6.A Painter Passing Through
7 Let It Ride
8. Rainy Day People
9.Shadows
10.Beautiful
11.Possibly In My Fashion (My writing is atrocious)
12 The Watchman's Gone
After this Gord seemed to be a trifle bemused about his own splendid lyrics and twice said something like "That song is about death"! However he refrained from mentioning Mark Twain, although during the concert we were treated to the usual Moon/Hare/Boulder joke Trilogy (I must try to remember to shout out when he asks "Why is the moon is pale" the obvious refrain "three and a half seconds")!
13 medley Ribbon Of Darkness/Sundown
14 The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald
A slightly different comment here:-
"I heard about it on the television 3 1/2 hours after it happened and got to work using an old Irish dirge as the base" or words to that effect
Intermission
1 Triangle
2.Cotton Jenny
3.Restless
4 Home FromThe Forest
5.Waiting For You
6.Make Way For The Lady
7.As Fine As Fine Can Be
8.If You Could Read My Mind
9.Don Quixote
10.Baby Step Back
11.Canadian Railroad Trilogy
Encore
12. Old Dan's Records
 
Please excuse typos in my thread title, there is no way to edit once posted only a full thread delete action is possible and it is too late for that now

As confirmed in another interview at:-
http://www.louisville.com/content/go...ife-song-music
"It came into play when I heard about it on the television set about three and a half hours after it happened. At about 11 o'clock in the evening when I was working at my house, and I was on a roll, and I was working on three or four songs, it just dropped in there...and it got done quickly. He said that the tune he had in mind was similar to an old Irish dirge, a melody from somewhere in his past and the maritime tradition in Canada of the old Irish and Scottish songs that his ancestors had brought over with them.

Ok, so Gord knew he'd get us all buzzing about what he meant by saying a collaboration with someone else as far as new music on the horizon he replied it "might be just around the corner". Ok, talk amongst yourselves....

i think he's hinting at a new release (perhaps the massey live) around the corner, not a collaboration...unless, of course, mccoo or thicke are available

that's the first pic i've seen where his new hairdo suits his chiseled look...it would be nice to see a higher res version...it would be portraiture-like in b+w

Doesn't sound like he was referring to Massey -but still excited @the prospect of a collaborative work
