Subject: RE: Thoughts on Gordon Lightfoot
Lonesome EJ

That song and Kate Wolf's "These Times..." were the two songs that brought me back to buying and playing "folk" music. In Northern IN we are blessed with a very long running Folk/Bluegrass radio program. I used to tune in for jazz standards working at the wheel late nights.

Instead of the jazz, this (then) new program was coming on and early on I heard Tony Rice' version of "Pride of Man" and the KW song--my record collection has never been the same since.

Coincidentally, that radio program was where I also first heard the "Gate of Horn--Revisited"--my first knowing introduction to Bob Gibson&Hamilton Camp. you were being facetious about Camp, no?
