It is the musical highlight of every calendar year when Canadian Music legend, Gordon Lightfoot announces his run of concert dates at Toronto's storied Massey Hall. May 25th, 2011 marked Gordon's 150th concert at the hallowed hall in the past 40 years. In 1978 he played a remarkable 10 shows in 9 days, selling out each and every night. Now, for the first time ever, Gordon has gone through the archives of live recordings from Massey Hall and has picked the finest performances recorded between 1998 - 2001. "The recordings have not been technically altered and are authentic live mixes," says Lightfoot of the album. Fans will hear each song exactly as it was performed that night - no over dubs, no mixing - all live.

Rhino Records/Warner Brothers from US have done a great job, extracting 13 great live recordings between the years 1998 and 2001. The recordings have not been technically altered and are authentic live mixes. The sound is pretty good for a live recording from the late nineties, and the songs are very well remastered. You can hear Gordon Lightfoot’s voice distinctly, although because of aging, his voice sounded a little strained. I would have preferred that Rhino Records did not put a two-second pause between songs. Even though the recordings were taken from different concerts, listening to the entire album with no pause is still preferred.Read more ›
In his younger years Lightfoot’s songs were immediately recognizable for his strong, rich baritone voice. Now, after 50 years of performing, Lightfoot is no longer young and his voice is no longer the same strong, rich baritone. That is to be expected, although the performances on the CD remain honourable and creditable. Age changes us all, and we long-term fans have been aging and changing with Lightfoot. There is a certain comfort in going through life’s changes with those who we know and respect, and we find ourselves reflected in Lightfoot and his life, voice and performance.
With 19 songs, this CD contains many of Lightfoot’s best-known and best-loved songs, including If You Could Read My Mind, Early Morning Rain, Rainy Day People, Shadows, Christian Island, The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald, Canadian Railroad Trilogy, and Song for a Winter’s Night, among others.Read more ›
Purists may scoff, but as a casual observer, this made me want to buy more of his stuff - and that's the ultimate compliment I can give.
