Beautiful-A Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot
"If You Could Read My Mind.."; then I would tell you this is a "Beautiful" CD to add to your collection! It also serves as a serious sampler of Contemporary Canadian talents. "Old Gord" nearly left the planet a while back (check out "Harmony "from 2004). So it was great to pick up this set on a visit to Kingston, Ontario. Represented within are rockers and folkies; fellow country men & women united for a common cause: One more "Go Go Round" of the classic catalog of Gordon Lightfoot. Songs new and old, well-known and obscure all receive some stellar treatments here from a multi-talented ensemble. Most "Rock Tribute" albums are, at best, mere carbon copies of the superstars, or, at worst, embarassing ego-trips that should have been left on the cutting-room floor. "Beautiful" is that "rare bird" that transcends cliches and sentiment and really does "honor it's maker"; the still very much "alive and well" Mr. Gordon Lightfoot!...by Grimmbo.
This is great for anyone who loves Gordon Lightfoot, it's recognition for what we've known for years. We love you Gordon.
