Description

Canada's most successful contemporary Folk artist, Gordon Lightfoot, is frequently referred to as that nation's greatest songwriter.

However, once he'd finally "made it" in the late 1960s, he immediately set about trying to distance himself from much of his early recording career.

Indeed, when a compilation LP titled Early Lightfoot - comprising his first solo recordings, from a pair of Spring 1962 Nashville sessions - appeared in 1971, he is rumoured to have bought up all known copies and destroyed them.

The story may of course be apocryphal, but those rare-as-hens-teeth recordings are included herein in their entirety, augmented by a 45rpm and live album which Lightfoot had recorded a couple of months earlier, with singer/guitarist Terry Whelan, in a short-lived Folk duo called The Two Tones.

This material is all exceptionally rare and has never previously been thus compiled; the majority of these sides are impossible to find elsewhere on CD.
