Gordon Goes Electric

It seems to me that Gordon said something like, "Ok guys, let's use electric guitars on this one, and not acoustic, in our same strumming and fingerpicking styles, but electric." At first, I didn't like it as much as the classic albums he had just released, like Summertime Dream, Cold on the Shoulder, and Sundown. But it has really grown on me. The lyrics and chords are all there, as good as ever. And you can really get into some of these songs. Daylight Katie with that cool tempo change. And Sometimes I Don't Mind with that driving rhythm. And The Circle Is Small was a #33 hit in 1978, a remake of an earlier song of his. Why did I ever doubt him?
