He opened the show with High and Dry followed by Carefree Highway. (That was the only show out of half a dozen I attended that I ever heard him perform Carefree Highway. Never understood why he would leave such a great song out.)
Anyway, what a joy to discover all the great songs he had written before the Sundown album. I was hooked for life and he became my favorite performer of all time.
I am not so much sad today but appreciative of all the great music I still listen to today. Lightfoot came across as a down to earth guy who you would enjoy spending time with. Which is what I am going to do today. Thank you Gordon Lightfoot for a lifetime of great memories and music. MTABob
Just as we're all trying to deal with the recent death of Harry Belafonte, Gordon Lightfoot passed away today.
