Thread Name: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
Subject: RE: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
I can't think of a more natural songwriter. Rarely a tortured lyric, always an interesting melody over a surprising (for its day) accompaniment.

Coincidentally, I just found that "Cotton Jenny" makes a superb song with which to follow an instrumental "Hard Times" by Foster.
