Synopsis

Album Description
A national treasure in his native Canada and a timeless star Stateside and worldwide, legendary singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot first rose to fame in the mid-'60s when his compositions became hits for Peter, Paul and Mary ("Early Morning Rain") and Marty Robbins ("Ribbon of Darkness"). Both songs are featured on Rhino's newly reissued CD version of the artist's hits compilation Gord's Gold-a Top 40 Album-originally released in 1975 as a 2-LP set currently out of print. This in-depth overview of troubadour Lightfoot's famed Warner Bros. years provides an insightful portrait of an exemplary talent.

Good introduction to a wide range of his best pieces.

This was a favorite LP of mine back in the mid-80s, when it first came out. I loved Gordon Lightfoot's quavery, emotional delivery of his music--mostly folk ballads, old and new. He tells a story well in melody; one can easily picture the people and situations involved in each song.
