Gordon Lightfoot: Sunday Concert, Plus

1-CD with 36-page booklet, 16 tracks. Playing time approx. 54 mns.

Gordon Lightfoot's Massey Hall concerts in Toronto are a 30-year tradition. The March 30th, 1969 concert not only allowed the singer/songwriter an opportunity to perform songs such as Ribbon Of Darkness that were quickly becoming standards for an adoring hometown crowd, it also allowed him to debut ambitious unrecorded songs like Ballad of Yarmouth Castle, an apparent precursor of his 1976 hit,
The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald. Essentially solo except for guitarist Red Shea and bassist Rick Haynes at the concert, this 11-song acoustic performance is augmented by four electric studio recordings,
circa 1968, including a cover of Dylan's Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues. This 16-track CD completes Bear Family's reissue of Lightfoot's complete 1965-1969 five-album output for United Artists, and includes such enduring Lightfoot classics as Canadian Railroad Trilogy, Ribbon of Darkness and the Nashville version of Spin Spin.

Gordon Lightfoot

First Top Ten Hit: If You Could Read My Mind (1971) First No. 1 Hit: Sundown (1974)

Gordon Lightfoot, a Canadian folk country poet, first roamed the bars and clubs as a bard in his homeland. He became famous and popular in the USA when singers like Marty Robbins and George Hamilton IV made the Lightfoot compositions "Ribbon Of Darkness", "Steel Rail Blues", "Early Morning Rain" and "F or Loving Me" hits. Lightfoot himself was considered an insider tip as a singer for a long time. Only a change of company, combined with a change of musical arrangement, brought him to the international charts. On the whole, however, Lightfoot has remained more of an L.P. artist to this day. His early L.P.s for United Artists are still the most beautiful and valuable for the friend of CountryMusic due to the small ensembles with two guitars and bass. Gordon Lightfoot was influenced by Pete Seeger, Bob Gibson and the duo "Ian & Sylvia". His first records were made in the early 1960s for Chateau Records, recordings that have long since become one of the most sought-after collectors' items.
