Thread Name: Gordon Lightfoot's 70 today.
Subject: RE:Gordon Lightfoot's 70 today.
I became a fan after seeing him live in Belfast, I think it was 1972. "The circle is small" and "Carefree Highway" will always be the ones for me. Not forgeting the haunting "Wreck of the Edmund fitzgerald". The History chanel did a wonderful programme about the wreck.

Good on you reaching 70 Gordon.
I also love the music of Harry Chapin, saw him live in Belfast in 1977. Gordon and Harry came to Belfast when no big names would even consider it. We never forgot that, well done Canada.
