Gordon Lightfoot is easily one of my top three favorite musicians of all time (the others are Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen….and yes the Canadians outnumber the American on this list). Let me elaborate how strong my feelings for Gordon’s music are……
- If I had to give up all of my music except my Gordon Lightfoot library I could still lead a happy life.
- I have planned Gordon Lightfoot themed vacations…a train trip through the Canadian Rockies inspired of course by Canadian Railroad Trilogy.
- My pick for the most moving song ever written…..The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald
- Did I mention he’s Canadian!
So it is with great pride that I bring you this great Gordon Lightfoot acoustic concert performance on BBC. If you aren’t a fan after listening to this concert…..I seriously have to question your musical taste. The set list includes:
Summer Side of Life
That’s What You Get For Loving Me
Affair on 8th Avenue
If YouCould Read My Mind
Steel Rail Blues
Ten Degrees and Getting Colder
Early Morning Rain
Me and Bobby McGee
Minstrel of the Dawn
Canadian Railroad Trilogy
