Weekly Vinyl – Sunday Concert

30 Oct

Sunday Concert
Gordon Lightfoot
(1969 – reissue)
SONY DSC

This is early Gordon Lightfoot. He sounds the same but different.
It is the same voice but younger, more vibrant and expressive. The music he creates is compelling and demands attention.
This album predates his “hits” from the 70s so you basically just have the Canadian Railroad Trilogy as the most known cannon of Lightfoot’s vast portfolio. Diehard fans of Lightfoot would protest this statement but most of these songs have not had airplay for about 40 years.
The album is enticing as it is perfect listening for a Sunday afternoon – especially now in the fall, with the leaves changing colours. You have a brilliant troubadour plying his stories in a subtle yet irresistible manner that just makes you want to sit back and take in the beauty of life.
