Thread Name: Country Singer Gordon Lightfoot
Subject: RE: Country Singer Gordon Lightfoot
Red Shea always amazed me. Caught two shows back in the 70ties at Place des Arts in Montreal. Still remember in amazement how the two complemented each other. When I first heard Bobby McGee I thought it was Gordon who wrote it. Never thought about looking to make sure. Gordon seldom done any other artist numbers so I just took it for granted that it was his tune. When I discovered that it was some guy by the name of Kris Kristofferson I just had to look this chap up. And what a great discovery he became. Then Kris help find a great one as well by the name of John Prine.
