Default 1962 - Lightfoot and The Two Tones - Audio CD

U.S. site -

CANADIAN site - not available from Canada..

U.K. site - check online..

Canada's most successful contemporary Folk artist, Gordon Lightfoot, is frequently referred to as that nation's greatest songwriter. However, once he'd finally "made it" in the late 1960s, he immediately set about trying to distance himself from much of his early recording career. Indeed, when a compilation LP titled Early Lightfoot - comprising his first solo recordings, from a pair of Spring 1962 Nashville sessions - appeared in 1971, he is rumoured to have bought up all known copies and destroyed them. The story may of course be apocryphal, but those rare-as-hens-teeth recordings are included herein in their entirety, augmented by a 45rpm and live album which Lightfoot had recorded a couple of months earlier, with singer/guitarist Terry Whelan, in a short-lived Folk duo called The Two Tones. This material is all exceptionally rare, and has never previously been thus compiled; the majority of these sides are impossible to find elsewhere on CD.

While there is one track on there that I have not heard, I do wonder if it's just like someone took the recordings I already have on my computer and put them onto a CD?

Still, for those who have NOT been gathering this sort of content for decades, this might be a good thing to have. There's not a whole lot of Gord-penned songs on there, but I hope he gets royalties from them.

Thank you, Char for the info. I successfully ordered it on Amazon. Like Andy said, I have heard some bootlegs of these songs. I bought the CD because of the likely update of sound quality and to keep my Lightfoot CD library complete.

I remember reading stories about Lightfoot in the early 1970's would take an axe to boxes of some of his early recordings. But at his stage in life, the release of this CD is hardly a big deal. His career and legacy are firmly established.
