    Gordon Lightfoot has a one-of-a-kind voice. True classic folk-rock.

    Introduced me to other of Gord's gems beyond the radio played hits. His lyrics and voice rarely miss the mark. Songs are intelligently and sensitively crafted. Few songs are as heart wrenching as Circle of Steel or as expansive as Canadian Railroad Trilogy. A great collection.
  • Mature Vocals at their Best

    I own both this and the United Artists Classics and Gordon Lightfoot has been one of my favourite singers since the mid-70s. The tremolo in his later voice is glorious but I love the angst of the early voice quality of the younger man equally. These songs are the essence of Canada in my mind, I see the landscape and seasons in the words. I think also of love, lost, won, forgotten, remembered with nostalgia. “Affair on 8th Avenue” says it all. Gordon Lightfoot is the voice I want to hear in front of a fireplace with brandy and my favorite ….

    First off, The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald was released in 1976. This album came out in 75. The United Artists material has all been rerecorded and with the exception of Wherefore and Why, the originals are better. Buy the albums called "Did She Mention My Name" and "The Way I Feel." then treat yourself to the first 5 Reprise albums. Each one a classic. If You Could Read My Mind, Summer Side of Life, Old Dan's Records, Don Quixote and Sundown. Summertime Dream is also a must. Avoid Gord's Gold II. Then continue into the 80s with Dream Street Rose, Shadows and Salute. Gordon Lightfoot set a high benchmark for singer/songwriters. Don't confine yourself to a greatest hits package. You're missing out on some of the highlights of his career.

    I listened to this double LP a hundred times. And, unlike the usual CD issue, here you get "Affair on 8th Avenue." It's a perfect gathering of Lightfoot music. Only the fantastic "Seven Island Suite" is missing. (You need that classic,too.)
