Pure and Honest - Gord's Best

If you like Gordon Lightfoot and want to hear some of his earlier works, this is the album for you. I had already owned Gord's Gold Volumes 1 and 2 for many years, but this album showcases his earlier career. I had never heard most of these songs before but I knew from the first few strums of his guitar that I had found some new favorites. Even though some of these songs appear on his "Gold" albums, they are not the same versions. I actually prefer these versions as they are closer to an acoustic type of recording, as opposed to the more embellished versions that appear on the "Gold" albums. I highly recommend this album!

Gordon Lightfoot The United Artists Collection

Great Album! I can't say I have all of his albums but quite a few. There was an album released and I have it on a terrible sounding cassette titled Gordon Lightfoot The UA Years Volume II. On this album is a shipwreck song, Ballad Of The Yarmouth Castle, a favorite for years. It's similar to Edmund Fitzgerald, but a different story. Last night I looked up the Castle on Wikipedia. As Gordon sings, it was indeed " Too old to be sailed." Wish I cold get my hands on that CD
