Heartfelt Brilliance
Ben Fitzgerald | 05/02/2002
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Not only is Tony at his peak in many of these songs, but the musician line-up reads as a who's who of bluegrass. Ricky Skaggs, The Rice Brothers, JD Crowe, Jerry Douglass (of course), David Grisman, and more! So needless to say, there is some [kicking] music going on here. But what is truly magical about this album is Tony's unabashed love for Gordon Lightfoot. Every word is heartfelt, every note holds an emotion. And this man can sing! And although the album is a collection of songs from his entire career, it holds together as a single unit well - a concept album with a twist. And while Tony's voice, guitar and overall talent are the shine on the album, Lightfoot's lyrics are its depth. Lightfoot sure knows how to write a song. And Tony knows how to perform them. There's not a weak link in the chain, but keep an ear out for "Early Morning Rain", "Whispers of the North", and "Walls"."
Excellent Bluegrass rendtions of Lightfoot favorites

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Tony Rice is an excellent guitar player who has an obvious respect for Gordon Lightfoot. His renditions of Lightfoot tunes are replete with riffs and runs not found in Lightfoot's original recordings. Although not the greatest singer in the world, Rice brings a unique sound to these old Lightfoot ballads. As a Lightfoot fan, I have found myself listening to this album over and over again. I think you'll like it too."
Tony Rice-Gordon Lightfoot who could be better

(5 out of 5 stars)

"I have enjoyed listening to Gordon Lightfoot for decades and this tribute is the best I've heard. Who could do a better job than Tony Rice. Excellant vocals and guitar. Whispers of the North, Home from the Forest,16 Miles, Song for a Winters Night what a great selection of songs."
