Did She Mention My Name? and Back Here on earth! Oh Gord, you know I love you. I think these may be the last two Gord albums in the collection for the Project 365! Both solid albums. Gordon lightfoot is my Canadian choice for a dinner guest. What’s your fav Gord album?
Back Here On Earth is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot‘s fourth studio album, released in 1968 on the United Artists label.Apart from his eponymous debut album, it is Lightfoot’s only studio album not to derive its title from a song on the album. Back Here on Earth was Lightfoot’s last studio recording on the United Artists label which he left after releasing the live album Sunday Concert in 1969. In his Allmusic review, critic Richie Unterberger wrote of the album “It’s not quite as outstanding as his first three albums, lacking highlights on the order of “Early Mornin’ Rain” or “Black Day in July.” Lightfoot never offered weak material on his United Artists efforts, however, and Back Here on Earth is still a very solid set, certainly worth acquiring if you like his other LPs for this label.
Did She Mention My Name? was Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot‘s third studio album, released in 1968 on the United Artists label. The album marked Lightfoot’s first use of orchestration. In his Allmusic review, critic Richie Unterberger praised the album, writing “Though a tad more erratic than his earlier efforts, his songwriting remained remarkably consistent. His characteristically bright, uplifting outlook became more diverse as well…”
He played at the half time show of the Grey Cup (that’s football, right?). Here’s a youtube clip from that game, that I obviously didn’t watch. He was MUCH better when we say him in November 2011 in Vancouver. Maybe he was nervous but he had no voice here, poor guy. Love you always Gord.
