I was very sad to learn that the great Gordon Lightfoot, one of the finest songwriters of his and any generation, left us on Monday at the tender age of 84.
I have been a fan of his since 1975 when my Dad bought a copy of the dreadfully titled "Gord's Gold" compilation album. When "The Wreck Of The Edmund Fitzgerald" and the "Summertime Dream" album came out a year later that was it, I was hooked. RIP Mr Lightfoot.
