Thank you Brucester for clearing that up for me. I don't see how "Too Much To Lose" never made it on an album until Songbook. Great song. MTABob
Good Morning, MTABob:
Besides "Don Quixote" being a great song (intended for a lousy movie, hahaha)....
the album by the same name is also waaaay up there !!!
Gordo's "Don Quixote" LP (rel: Reprise Records/1972) hardly left our record player.
To answer your question regarding the song "Too Much To Lose"....
Here's what GORDON LIGHTFOOT had to say about it:
"That song was up for a Paul Newman movie ~ Cool Hand Luke ~ but they didn't want it.
Maybe it wasn't cool enough! I guess after that, I didn't want it either.
Not cool enough for Luke, I still consider it the coolest song we got out of the vault." - Gordon Lightfoot
Brucester, Thanks for the background. I think its a good thing "Don Quixote" didn't get associated with that movie! LOL. Was "Too Much To Lose" also written for this movie? MTABob
P.S. This was the only version I could find. Gordon did a much better one (IMHO) on his songbook collection.
