The Daily Walk with Miracles
One day in 1971 I happened to purchase a Gordon Lightfoot
LP album on vinyl. I immediately fell in love with his
music and bought everything of his I could find. I was never disappointed.
I especially recommend the albums “Sundown,” and if you
like pure, beautiful folk music at its finest, buy the 2CD
United Artists Years set. Listen to this Mix and you will
fall in love with Gordon Lightfoot’s music. Old Dan’s Records,
from 1972, topped the Candadian charts for three weeks, and
reached number 95 on the U.S. pop charts.

Old Dan’s Records 1972
I became familiar with Gordon Lightfoot’s music in 1971
and he is been my favorite folk musician. Old Dan’s Records
is great down home folk with country influences.

Gordon Lightfoot will be remembered as one of the twentieth century’s most important folk musicians. He will always be my own favorite folk artist, even more than Dylan.

One day in 1971 I happened to purchase a Gordon Lightfoot LP album on vinyl. I immediately fell in love with his music and bought everything of his I could find. I was never disappointed. I think that after his stroke in recent years the quality of his compositions has declined just a little, but I listened to a performance of his from 2013 and he is singing just as well as he ever did! I especially recommend the albums “Sundown” and if you like pure, beautiful folk music at its finest, buy the 2CD United Artists Years set. This is one of the very finest folk albums I have ever heard. My very favorite song of Gordon Lightfoot’s is “Pride of Man,” which I consider to be very prophetic music. Pay attention to the lyrics, direct from the Bible, where it warns, “oh thou that dwell on many waters, rich in treasure, wide in fame, bow unto a god of gold, thy pride of might shall be thy shame.” Ron Paul warned you, America.

LostJukeboxVolumes has a great write-up on Old Dan Records at the YouTube video page:
Old Dan’s Records is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot’s ninth original album, released in 1972 on the Reprise Records label. The album reached #1 in Canada on the RPM national album chart on November 5, 1972, and remained there for three weeks. In the U.S., it peaked at #95 on the pop chart.
The album marks a continued evolution in Lightfoot’s sound as he begins to add country influences to his standard folk sound with the help of the banjo, dobro and steel guitar. Lightfoot would continue to use these country influences in his music until the early 1980s. Despite its 1972 year of initial release, the album was nominated for and won the 1974 Juno Award for “Folk Album of the Year”. Lightfoot also won a Juno that year as “Folk Singer of the Year”.
