Gordon Lightfoot Artist Snapshot:

In the '60s and '70s, Canadian songsmith Gordon Lightfoot achieved the perfect marriage of folk and pop. His rich baritone was mellifluous enough to carry the elegantly catchy melodies of songs that possessed considerable substance beneath their undeniable pop hooks. He began at the more mainstream end of the folk camp, but by the '70s, he transcended the genre and became a popular figure with both commercial appeal and aesthetic value. Bob Dylan himself has expressed an abiding interest in Lightfoot's output.

Product Notes

This album wasn''t Lightfoot''s breakthrough recording, but it was both a demonstration of the rocking electric turn most folkies would make after Dylan''s revolution, and a commercially successful marriage of soulful, R&B sensibility with folk narratives. The title cut is probably engrained in the memory of anyone with an A.M. radio in the ''70s, but 20 years later, it sounds suggestive, even bluesy. "Carefree Highway" perhaps excessively romanticizes the road, but less familiar tracks like "Watchman''s Gone" and "Too Late for Prayin''" are convincing statements of Lightfoot''s lyrical endurance. --Roy Francis Kasten
