5.0 out of 5 stars Acoustic Jewel April 2 2008
By Verve
Format:Audio CD
Gordon Lightfoot is a mesmerising minstral with poetic lyrics. All he needs to captivate an audience are his voice, his songs, and an acoustic guitar. That's what you get here. The songs are all his own compositions, and he performs them flawlessly. There are no introductions, no between-songs chatter, no audience coughs or comments or other distractions; just an occasional burst of applause as unobtrusive as waves washing to shore. This CD is also known as "Sunday Concert." It was recorded in 1969 at one of his favourite haunts, Massey Hall in Toronto. It's a jewel.

5.0 out of 5 stars Early Classic. Oct. 15 1998
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
The works performed on this album represent much of the best of Lightfoot's earliest efforts. These songs are much more poetic than the material he produced after he began to be recognized. While the music he made between 1972 and 1980 is wonderful to listen to and sing, his earliest pieces show much more of his emotionally darkened soul as a young man. I'll take Yarmouth Castle over Edmond Fitzgerald any day for expressing the mood of the event.
Unfortunately the recording quality of this "live" performance is poor so it can be difficult to listen to in today's CD driven universe. Still, if you are interested in the poet in Lightfoot you can't do better than this.

5.0 out of 5 stars Poor Sound Quality? Nov. 15 2004
By Edward T. Ruggeri - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
This is very good quality for a live recording. It's professional, sound-board quality, and it's very well mixed (though I find the bass is just a little high for my tastes). The content is awesome. This is one of my favorite albums. I think there are a couple of other versions that have more tracks though...

I recommend this, if only to hear Canadian Railway Trilogy, which I love.
