Gordon Lightfoot Live in Reno
Thank You Gifts
As rough and familiar as your favorite denim jacket, Gordon Lightfoot's accessible, folksy hits peppered the Top 40 charts throughout the Seventies. In an intimate concert performance recorded in Reno, Nevada this year, Lightfoot perfroms some of his earliest songs, like "Canadian Railroad Trilogy" and "Rainy Day People" and his hits like "Sundown" and "Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald." Boomers will delight to this retrospective from a real rock 'n' roll survivor. Although well-known in the States, Lightfoot is a Canadian and earned the moniker "the Bob Dylan of Canada" early in his career. Northern border stations take note: you're likely to have enthusiastic viewers for this program.
