What distinguishes Gordon Lightfoot from every other singer songwriter who came to fame from the sixties is that he has stayed the course. His music reflects the observatuions of a Don Quixote who has charged at windmills and suffered pain and loss, found solace at the helm of his sailboat along the Canadian lakes or in the call of a ring neck loon. His are the shadows of a lover at the door of his beloved, the remembrances of a man whose lover leaves in the early morning hours. He has chronicled the wreck of ships and loss of lives, the loneliness of the hitchhiker who has fallen through the cracks of society, or the families of those in prison. The human factor has ever and always been the domain of Gordon Lightfoot, and in that regard he is very much a Graham Greene as Troubador, in as classical a sense of the word as possible. He has written the real Canadian National anthem and has pleaded with the cultural forces within Canada to stay together. His voice carries the mist of the maritimes, the grandeur of the Rockies, the solitude of the great Ontario wilderness. If you want to know what Canada is, you need only listen to Gordon Lightfoot. He is the crucible of all post war Canadian music. It is as inconceivable to imagine where Canadian writers might have gone without him as it is to imagine where American writers might have gone without Woody Guthrie or Charlie Patton.
So, on this DVD, Gordon presents his music as he always has: it is ever and always about the songs, and the songs are ever and always about real people. No special effects, no Spinal Tap set pieces, just a band of men who know what they are talking about, presenting their take and their observations on the road thus far, and what the journey of life has revealed to them.

I've been listening to Gordon Lightfoot's music for over 30 years now. I have all of his music and found that every one had something special to offer. Each one of his songs is an experience in another place or time. When you're listening to "Canadian Railroad Trilogy", you can picture the images in your mind of the men hitting the spikes: "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", you can almost feel the wind: Or the classic, "If You Could Read My Mind", the hurt in the man's heart when Lightfoot metaphorically sings, ..."you know that ghost is me...and I will never be set free as long as I'm a ghost and you can't see". What Steven Spielberg does for movies, Gordon Lightfoot does to music. It's true that after 30 years, his voice has changed. But that doesn't matter. That's like saying as one grows older and their looks fade, that our love for a person fades as well. Everyone knows grandparents have the most to offer and so does Lightfoot's music. So many artists have just done a record or two and then fade into oblivion. To see Gordon Lightfoot perform on this DVD to a full house brought tears to my eyes. Because he hasn't been in the mainstream for so long, you wonder how many people love his music and this concert proves that a great performer can still pack them in. The song "Restless" sent a chill through me as his group performed that one. It was better than the CD version. Also the audience was professional. Not a yell, cough or premature clap before his songs were finished, proving that they knew his music well to sit and hear every note. I am a station manager of a country radio station and I play his music on the air every day. I put Gordon Lightfoot on the play list daily right between artists like Garth Brooks, Ray Price or Shania Twain.Read more ›

I've been a fan of Gords for 40 years so perhaps my 5 stars is a little biased. Gords voice is not as strong as it used to be( by my reckoning he was nearing 70 years old on this video)but he still sounds great. Many of the songs performed are folk classics & all are written by himself. He is a master songwriter & a folk legend. Very pleased to see live versions of songs like Wreck Of The E. Fitzgerald & Canadian Railroad Trilogy as well as many other classics. All in all a very pleasant way to spend 1.5 hours

Great DVD. This is an absolute "must" for the Gordon Lightfoot fan! Gordon looks great en sings even better. I think Gordon is a very friendly person. I'm very pleased with this video, because I didn't have the chance to see Gordon live. It's a shame that Gordon doesn't come to Europe for a concert. I live in the Netherlands (that small country in Europe with the capital Amsterdam). For the fans in Europe: buy the US-version of this DVD it contains 22 songs in stead of the 14 songs on the European version. But if you do so, don't forget to buy a region-free DVD-player!

I've seen Gordon Lightfoot in concert, on average, once a year since 1972. I've also met him several times and even received a bit of advice from Lightfoot regarding my own career. I bought this DVD for posterity--out of "respect for a legend." The set is a stellar collection and example of the artist's best songwriting. True, Lightfoot doesn't have the voice he had 30 years ago, but he's still far more expressive than many of his peers. Lightfoot and his band still play with precision and clarity such that few bands would only hope to aspire to during a live concert. Meanwhile, their performance of "Old Dan's Records" is rousing, "Make Way for the Lady" bluesy and inspired, "Early Morning Rain" and "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" completely authentic. Some of Lightfoot's newer songs, like "I'll Prove My Love," "Waiting for You," and "A Painter Passing Through," sound almost exactly like the studio recordings. Some reviewers have commented on how Lightfoot looks "frail" and "gaunt." Well, when he enters this Reno stage to start the show and, later, returns for his encore, Lightfoot has a noticeable spring in his step and appears totally youthful! With complete confidence, he and the band "nail" "Cold On the Shoulder" to end this DVD collection--something all fans should have for "posterity."
