This box set contains Gordon Lightfoot's first five widely-available albums. He recorded them for United Artists between 1965 and 1969 before he switched labels. The three CDs contain all of the material that was recorded on those five albums, and it still sounds great. Many of these songs were recorded by, and were international hits for, other artists. Lightfoot's own recordings of them were only hits in Canada. He didn't make it big internationally until "If You Could Read My Mind" from a later album. However, these three discs (and five albums) are full of those early Canadian hits -- "For Lovin' Me", "Early Mornin' Rain", "Steel Rail Blues", "I'm Not Sayin", "Go Go Round", "Canadian Railroad Trilogy", "Black Day in July", "Mountains and Marian", "Boss Man", "Did She Mention My Name", and more. All of these, and many more of the songs, are classics. The first four albums (on the first two discs) are studio albums, while the last album (on the last disc) consists of live performances from a series of concerts at Massey Hall in 1969. The set also includes a nice, descriptive booklet. This is Lightfoot at the beginning of his five-decade career: young, fresh and creative, with great writing, playing and a strong, rich voice. The music here is among his best, if it is not his best. Also, you can't beat the price for five complete albums with extras. Treat yourself and buy this set.

A lot of Gordon Lightfoot's amazing material is on here. The entire first disc is rich diggings. The second contains great stuff too, Mountains and Mary Anne, Something Very Special, Pussywillows Cattails for example. The third disc is largley 'A Sunday Concert'.

The compilation 'Songbook' is also great but this set gives a much better picture of Lightfoot's early work.

Format: Audio CD
The first Lightfoot album I bought(and still have) was called "Lightfoot!". All of that album is here on cd.
I especially like his version of Phil Ochs song, "Changes". Even though Gord's stature as a songwriter was unquestioned, I admire his tribute to Ochs too.His voice was pure and clear. The simplicity of the music was
timeless, it sounds just as fine today as it did then.
I've carried the Lightfoot message ever since.
Thanks Gord.
