Product Description

Product Description

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.

Gordon Lightfoot is our Canadian institution. He was born on November 17,1938 in Orillia, Ontario. He has a lengthy recording career, starting with the album Lightfoot on United Artists label (1965) and ended with Harmony in 2004. If you live in Toronto, you will remember two major record stores, A&A and of course, Sam the Record Man. I still remember that in 1975, I braved heavy rain and went to A&A to get Gordon Lightfoot’s The Best of Gordon Lightfoot vinyl record for 99 cents in a midnight sale. Of course, we in Ontario are also blessed with the yearly Gordon Lightfoot’s concert at the very intimate cozy Massey Hall downtown.

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.

5.0 out of 5 stars Relaxed and Intimate Oct. 13 2012
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Gordon Lightfoot has been performing, recording and entertaining audiences far and wide for 50 years now – since the early 1960s in Canada. He has recorded 20 original albums, for which he has written almost all of the songs, and has released innumerable collections and compilations. His songs have been in the folk, folk-rock and the country genres, and many other prominent performers have recorded his songs and have contributed to Lightfoot tribute albums. His music has been appreciated by multiple generations of listeners, his fan base continues to grow and he has received many awards. He has become a national treasure in Canada. This CD – All Live – is a collection of songs that Lightfoot recorded live and in concert at Toronto’s Massey Hall between 1998 and 2001. I believe that Lightfoot himself reviewed the concert recordings and selected the songs for the CD.

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.

I bought this disc for my father as a gift and ended up really, really enjoying it. This is a nice disc for people who don't know too much about Lightfoot and want to give him a try. I thought he was more 'folky' than this disc shows, this is something I could see myself listening to on the porch drinking a beer. Great renditions of "Wreck", "Sundown", etc. and a bang up version of a song I had never heard, "14 Karat Gold".

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.

2.0 out of 5 stars a mixed result July 19 2012
By Harry Havey TOP 1000 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
I consider Lightfoot one of the best singer/songwriters Canada had had. But I think this album shows the best and worst of his songwriting ability and a few times I scratched my head wondering why he thought a song was good enough to put on the CD alongside other greats. He's also not an overly spontaneous live artist and if you were hoping for that you won't find it here either.
