DVDs

Gordon Lightfoot Live In Reno @ $11.99 each : In Stock
Sale!

Taped in April, 2000 in Reno, NV, specifically for video release, this DVD has 22 songs, including all four top 10 hits (If You Could Read My Mind, Sundown, Carefree Highway and Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald). The audio was recorded, mixed and mastered by Bob Doidge of Grant Avenue Studio.

This is the North American version, Region 1/NTSC. It's the 2011 Canadian release of this concert, from Linus Entertainment. There have been other North American compatible releases; this is the only one still in print.

The DVD called "Gordon Lightfoot: Greatest Hits Live", from Alpha Centauri (which I carried before it went out of print), is the same material, so don't buy both!

CDs

Gordon Lightfoot - Gord's Gold @ $11.49 each : In Stock

This is the Lightfoot's first greatest hits album, missing only "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" - because it wasn't written yet. This album was released in mid-1975; "The Wreck" wasn't written until November, a few weeks after the shipwreck, and not released until 1976.

This CD version is missing one song, "Affair on 8th Avenue", because at the time of the CD release 74 minutes was the maximum length of a CD (it is 80 minutes now).

The album includes 11 songs released from United Artist (1966-1969), and 12 songs from his Warner years, 1970-1975. All of the early songs were re-recorded for this album, in his wonderful 1970s style, resulting in recordings that are different from but no less wonderful than the originals.

Interesting note: the cut of "If You Could Read My Mind" is from the single, not the album, so it has harmony vocals (by Lightfoot). This version is also on the 2002 album, Complete Greatest Hits.

Visit the album page for the full list of songs, and links to listen to clips.

Gordon Lightfoot - Summertime Dream @ $14.49 each : In Stock

New Warner CD (Warner Canada). This is the original CD from Warner Canada, and is increasingly hard to find.

This CD should need no introduction; it's the one with The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald. Another gem is Race Among The Ruins which is one of my favorite Lightfoot songs. Also, The House You Live In (which was his mother's favorite song), and I'm Not Supposed To Care, which Dylan performs live on occasion. Altogether, a wonderful album.

Gordon Lightfoot - Complete Greatest Hits @ $11.99 each : In Stock

This is the 2002 Warner/Rhino release of 20 of Lightfoot's greatest songs: all the hits, some well known album tracks from the past, and some more recent gems.

This CD was lovingly put together by Rhino's Thane Tierney, who co-produced the Songbook Box Set (1999), and also the last 4 CDs from Lightfoot's catalogue to be released on CD (2002). The re-mastering was done by Bill Inglot, who is one of the best in the business; the cuts here sound better than on any other CD. Interesting note: the cut of If You Could Read My Mind is from the single, not the album, so it has harmony vocals (by Lightfoot). Gord's Gold also used the mix from the single. Sundown is from the single as well, and has never appeared anywhere but on the 45. Nobody - including Thane - knows for sure what the difference is between the single and album versions (something in the guitar track, we think). Anyhow, it a lovely CD for your collection even if you have everything else.

Gordon Lightfoot - Sunday Concert Plus @ $24.99 each : In Stock

Imported from Germany. This is one of the three Bear Family Records CDs, that together give you Lightfoot's entire United Artists catalogue - in the best remastering available on CD.

This CD includes the live, 11 song Sunday Concert record, plus 5 bonus tracks, making it quite special. The bonus tracks include Just Like Tom Thumb's Blues, a Dylan song, plus the Nashville version of Lightfoot's Spin, Spin, a song that was released only as a single (twice - the other is on the 3rd Bear Family album). This is a great CD! You won't be disappointed.

Gordon Lightfoot - Lightfoot/The Way I Feel @ $24.99 each : In Stock

Imported from Germany. This CD, one of three from Bear Family, has no bonus tracks, but I consider it the best mastered CD with these earliest of Lightfoot's official albums.

This CD contains all the songs from the first two records. This CD plus the other two Bear Family CDs (which have 1 and 5 bonus tracks respectively) will give you his entire catalog from United Artists.

Gordon Lightfoot - Did She Mention My Name/Back Here on Earth Plus @ $24.99 each : In Stock

Imported from Germany. This CD, one of three Lightfoot CDs from Bear Family, has one bonus track, the New York version of Spin, Spin. (Sunday Concert Plus has the Nashville version - I will let you figure out the difference). I consider this CD the best mastered version of these two records, the 3rd and 4th of Lightfoot's official albums.

This CD plus the other two Bear Family CDs (which have 0 and 5 bonus tracks respectively) will give you his entire catalog from United Artists.

Gordon Lightfoot - United Artists Collection (2 CD Set) @ $10.39 each : In Transit
Expected in stock week of May 25th.

This CD set contains all of the cuts from Lightfoot's first four United Artists albums: Lightfoot!, The Way I Feel, Did She Mention My Name and Back Here on Earth. This CD plus Sunday Concert Plus from Bear Family (see 3 above) will give you his entire catalog from United Artists. This is a less pricey way to get all these songs than buying the three Bear Family CDs. Note that the second Bear Family CD has a bonus track, which you won't get if you go with this CD, and the mastering of the Bear Family CDs is generally considered the best of all the alternatives.

Gordon Lightfoot - Don Quixote @ $13.99 each : In Stock

New CD / Believed to be Out of Print in US.

This is either the Canadian pressing or the US pressing of the original Warner CD, or the Warner Archives release. Other than the record company name and country, these are identical.

This album is one of my favorites; it's a Lightfoot cross between folk and country, and the songs on it are among his very best. The title track is one of my top 5 favorites; I never tire of it. If you don't have this original album, you should get one while you still can. Click on the album name above to read my review of this outstanding CD.

Gordon Lightfoot - Sundown @ $12.99 each : In Stock

New Warner CD (Warner Canada). Limited quantity.

The one Lightfoot album that reached #1 on Billboard - simultaneously in the US and Canada. And the title song was #1 that same week. It was the first album to do so! Many standout tracks including Carefree Highway (reached #10), and the less well known classics The Watchman's Gone, Circle of Steel, and Seven Island Suite.

Gordon Lightfoot - If You Could Read My Mind @ $10.99 each : In Stock

New Warner CD (Warner Canada, Europe or US). Note: These CDs had stickers on the back, on the cellophane. I removed the stickers, but the backs are a little sticky. Of course, you must remove the cellophane in order to play the CD, so this shouldn't be an issue!

The Warner original album CDs are out of print in the US, making them difficult to find and sometimes expensive.

This is Lightfoot's first album for Warner Brothers, and it is a classic. The title track was his first song to chart in the US, and reached #5 on the pop chart. But the entire album is "gold", and a must for your collection.

The title song, "If You Could Read My Mind", was the theme song for the Portrait Painter on the UK TV series, "Trigger Happy TV".

Gordon Lightfoot - Endless Wire @ $11.49 each : In Stock

New Warner CD (Warner Canada).

Released in 1978, Endless Wire was Lightfoot's first album following Summertime Dream. Endless Wire featured several signature songs, while not getting the acclaim it deserved.

Highlights include "Daylight Katy", a minor hit in the UK, "If Children Had Wings", a poignant song written when his ex- wife moved to Europe with his children, and a re-recording of "The Circle Is Small", which first appeared on "Back Here on Earth".

Books

Maynard Collins - If You Could Read His Mind @ $39.00 each : Temp. Out Of Stock

All copies will be used, but none will have serious defects; just things like minor scuffing or tearing of dust cover, cracked hinges and/or previous owner name or nameplate. None in stock now, but you can place an order and I will ship when I find another nice copy.

Published 1988. Long out of print.

This is the only real biography of Lightfoot. The one other, written 13 years earlier, is more a collection of clipping and news reports.

The book is odd in that it appears to be written by someone who doesn't like his subject, so keep that in mind. There are quotes from people like ex-wives and ex-girlfriends, not people whose opinions one would consider objective! But, in spite of such shortcomings, the book is interesting, and it does a decent job of covering the major events in Lightfoot's life through the date of publication.

The pictures, some provided by Lightfoot, are excellent.

Other Artists

CDs

David Rea - X7 (Times Seven) @ $15.00 each : In Stock

Only a limited number of copies remain; buy it while you can!

David Rea, who passed away on October 27th, was Gordon Lightfoot's "first" lead guitar player (definition of "first" being that he played lead for Gord at live gigs, as well as on an album). He was an amazing guitar player, as well as a fine singer/songwriter in his own right. And he was a friend. Please visit his web site at David Rea Music to learn more about him. You can buy the CD here or there.

My favorite cut on this CD is David's beautiful cover of Ian Tyson's The Gift. If you visit the X7/Times Seven album page (see link in CD title), you can listen to a clip of it.

Gibson & Camp ... Revisited @ $15.00 each : In Stock

This is the "remake" of the influential At The Gate Of Horn album, with the songs and the between song banter repeated, and with three additional songs including their signature Well, Well, Well and the Lightfoot cover For Lovin' Me. This is a great CD showcasing one of the most influential folk duos of the 60s, who both went on - in spite of personal demons - to contribute wonderful music until the time of their deaths.

You can buy the CD here or at the Hamilton Camp web site.

This CD-R contains all the songs and all the banter from the original 1961 Gate of Horn performance, plus 3 additional songs including the wonderful Lightfoot song.

Listen to clips of all the songs by clicking on the CD title above.

Steve Gillette & Cindy Mangsen - Live In Concert @ $15.00 each : In Stock

This CD contains no Lightfoot songs, but it does contain Darcy Farrow, a song that Lightfoot performed live in the 1960s. It's a great song, covered by dozens of famous artists, and Steve's guitar playing will take your breath away. Steve wrote the song with friend Tom Campbell, and it has become a folk classic. It was first performed live by Ian & Sylvia, and made famous by John Denver.

The CD is Steve & Cindy's first duet album. There are no Cindy original songs on this one, but her musical accompaniment and harmonizing are superb, and the traditional songs that she sings are truly wonderful. Just about all of the well known songs that Steve co-wrote appear here, including The River, Grapes On The Vine, Crying Don't Even Come Close, Bed Of Roses, The Old Trail and Glass Houses, in addition to Darcy Farrow. Steve's songs have been recorded by many popular artists over the years, including Linda Ronstadt, Waylon Jennings, Garth Brooks, Kenny Rogers, Tammy Wynette, The Kingston Trio, Ian & Sylvia, Nancy Griffith, Josh Ritter and others, in addition to Ian & Sylvia and John Denver.

I just love this CD and can play it on repeat for hours on end. Please visit their web site at CompassRoseMusic.com to learn more about them. You can buy the CD here or there.

If you visit the clips page (see link in CD title), you can listen to clips of all the songs. If you want more of a sample than the clip of Darcy Farrow, here's a video of them playing live a few years ago: Darcy Farrow live.

The River * Going Away * Grapes on the Vine * Their Brains Were Small * Glass Houses * Shake Sugaree * Darcy Farrow * When I Was In My Prime * Corinna * Annachie Gordon * The Old Trail * Heartland * La Guitarra * Off to Find a Treasure * The Frozen Logger * Crying Don't Even Come Close * Jay Gould's Daughter * Ring Around the Moon * Bed of Roses

Cindy Mangsen - Cat Tales @ $15.00 each : In Stock

Here's Cindy Mangsen's most recent solo album, and one that will appeal to all cat lovers, with 10 wonderful songs about cats. Besides Cindy's own most requested, "Rudy's Big Adventure," based on the true story of the cat who got his head stuck in the garbage disposal and lived to bask in fame and glory, there are songs from Cheryl Wheeler, Buddy Mondlock, Les Barker, Nancy White, Grant Livingston, The Berrymans and others. No cats were injured in the production of this fine recording.

The songs: Meow, Open That Can, The Cats of the Coliseum, Rudy's Big Adventure, The Familiar, Our Cats, Guide Cats for the Blind, My Pretty Kitty, Le Chat Gris, and The Dog of Time

Website at CompassRoseMusic.com. You can buy the CD here or there.

If you visit the clips page (see link in CD title), you can hear clips of all the songs, and watch a You Tube video of Cindy playing her great original song, Rudy's Big Adventure.

David Mallett - Midnight on the Water @ $15.00 each : In Stock

(2006) This is another CD with no Lightfoot songs, but the artist, David Mallett, is a favorite of many devoted Lightfoot fans - and that is how I first learned about him. Mallett, from Maine, is himself a fan of Lightfoot, and many of his songs are in a style reminiscent of Lightfoot, yet very much his own.

This CD is a live recording from 2006, with longtime bassist Michael Burd and violinist Susan Ramsey Crippen. It contains my favorite David Mallett song (Somewhere In Time), as well as some of his other beautiful originals. Like Lightfoot, a good number of his songs are personal songs, and for the most part those are the ones that speak to me. This is a great live album for any fan, and a great introduction for new listeners.

Angel Standin' By * Here We Go * Greenin' Up * Dulcimer * Walkin' * Somewhere in Time * Midnight On The Water * Artist In Me * I Knew This Place * Didn't Nobody Teach You * Summer of My Dreams * Strange Life * Hometown Heroes * Parallel Lives * Fire * A Long Goodbye * Ballad of the St. Anne's Reel

David Mallett - Alright Now @ $15.00 each : In Stock

(2009)

Ten Men * One of Those Things * North Meets South * Easier Than This * Beautiful * Innocent Time * End of the Day * Dark Side of the Moon * Don't Ask Me * Alright Now
