Thread Name: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
Subject: RE: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
I erred in my earlier post, the medley I referred to appeared on the "Gord's Gold" double album. Specifically, the piece was re-recorded for that album. One disk of the double was re-mastered from previously released work and he went into the studio to redo all the songs on the second disk. A terrific release, in any case.

The Dream Street Rose album was significant because (I think) of his inclusion of "The Auctioneer." He records few enough of other people's work that, when he does a classic like this LeRoy Van Dyke rockabilly number from the fifties, it really makes me sit up and take notice.
