5.0 out of 5 stars the best songsmith ever, July 18 2004
My musical tastes have changed alot over the years but I have always apreciated great songs. You could spend a fortune and not have a better compilation of songs than this two cd set. This is early Lightfoot,with bare recording techniques that strip away the layers of pop overproduction and leave just a Man and his wonderful music. Lightfoot was obviously younger here and his songs reflect that. from lost loves to social injustice, boredom and restlessness, Lightfoots songwriting skills combined with beautiful guitar work and his rich baritone create a listening experience I have never equalled on any cd. Just listen. What a treasure, and what an underappreciated musical talent.

5.0 out of 5 stars GIBSON AT HIS BEST, March 15 2004
This review is from: Signs (Bilingual) (DVD)
In the negative critiques of this film I can say these people just don't get it. This movie is about faith yes, but just as important its about the love of a family and how it helps these wonderfully developed characters survive and prevail in a crisis. The fact that the crisis is an invasion from space just makes it spooky and delightfully entertaining. great acting by all makes this a movie I don't get tired of watching.

5.0 out of 5 stars Gord's the man, Aug. 7 2002
This review is from: Complete Greatest Hits (Audio CD)
This cd is essential to anyone who likes Gordon Lightfoot. It is a great chronology of this gifted singer, songwriter. His early acoustic folk music is simply some of the best ever recorded. Early mornin rain is as good as folk music gets.I have been hooked on lightfoot since I heard "sundown" on the radio as a youngster. But If you haven't heard Lightfoots early recordings for united artists you just haven't heard the whole story. this is one of the best collections of one of north america's greatest musical treasures. Put it in your player and let it go. You won't be sorry

4.0 out of 5 stars great hooks, Aug. 5 2002
This review is from: Room for Squares (Audio CD)
I couldn't disagree more with the first review of this well
crafted and down right fun cd. First of all," No Such Thing" is such a breath of fresh air, compared to most of the mindless drivel on pop radio today. And while I am a fan of Dave Matthews
I think comparisons are unfair. I think Mayer's sound is Unique
and stands on its own merit. The songs are pop for sure but there
is great guitar work and his lyrics are more insightful and certainly more understandable than some. Great guitar riffs and
hooks and just plain good songs. Certainly a welcome sound in Todays era of Technopop and Boy Bands.
