This is one of the "final four" - the four albums recorded by Lightfoot which had not, until now, been released on CD by Warner Brothers. (This has been released with Old Dan's Records, which is also very good.) I had Dream Street Rose on vinyl and so listening to it once again, this time on CD, is like seeing an old friend for the first time in a long time.
It's typical Lightfoot, with his usual blend of simple melodies, lyrics about bittersweet love and, refreshingly, a brilliant version of the Auctioneer - all sung in his wonderful baritone voice. He's on good form, as are his usual backing musicians - Terry Clements, Rick Haynes and Pee Wee Charles.
If you like Lightfoot, go buy this and the other members of the "final four" - well worth the money. Incidentally, if you're in the UK, they have not been released yet - am I the only UK resident with these on CD....?

I love Gord.The first time I heard him, back in '68,my college roommate was going crazy over this "new guy from Canada." She insisted I listen.So I did,and my first reaction was"Oh,man...country stuff."I had never really been exposed to very much folk music(which I found out later was what Gord was singing.)Anyway..after I listened a bit,I fell madly in love with him, and have been ever since.I have all of his albums on vinyl, of course,and am so happy that more and more of his work is coming out on CD. I know I haven't said anything much about this CD in particular,but if you are a Gord fan,you will buy it anyway.If you only know him from "Sundown," then give this one a try.My favorite is "Whisper My Name." Very few songwriters can get to your heart like Gord.Check it out.All these years later,I'm still crazy for the guys work.

A tossup between this and Gordon's "Endless Wire" as to which is his best CD. Unfortunately, this album's poor sales ended Gordon days of receving any meaningful radio play. By 1980 only soft rock stations played Gordon's songs and "Dream Street Rose" was his last single that received hardly any air time (John Denver's career similarly floundered in the 78-80 timeframe but he enjoyed moderate later success on country charts). Gordon should have invested the time he spent learning yodeling for the song on this album ("The Auctioneer") into branching out beyond his folk roots. I remember him in a 1981 concert mentioning he was starring in a western movie, never heard anymore about it. As revealed in his year 2000 Reno concert that is on DVD, his voice is pretty much gone amd more than one newspaper reviewer of his concerts have mentioned his heavy drinking. "On the High Seas" and "If You Need Me" are terrific songs that deserved a much better fate. So good to finally have this album on CD, the best thing about it is one can put it on and listen to every song, they are that good. Thank you, Gordon!

Dream Street Rose had the notoriety of being one of four album releases by Gordon Lightfoot that had yet to see the light of being on CD until now (the other three being Old Dan's Records, which has been released concurrently with this one, Shadows, and Salute--the latter two will be released on CD later this summer). This release also had the distinction of being one of the first digitally-recorded albums when it came out in 1980.
Turning away from the heavy-handed production techniques of Endless Wire (this album's predecessor), Dream Street Rose sounded terrific on LP, and sounds even better now. Rhino has done its usual wonderful job of packaging; and the re-mastering by Bill Inglot, who did the remastering for the 4-CD set Songbook and the recently released 1-CD compilation Complete Greatest Hits, is fantastic. Makes me wish we could put ALL of Lightfoot's releases in Inglot's hands and say "Here--get to work!"
On Dream Street Rose, Lightfoot once again utilizes his road-tested band of Terry Clements on lead acoustic and electric guitars, Rick Haynes on bass, Pee Wee Charles on pedal steel and Barry Keane on drums. They are augmented by other players, most notably Bob Glaub on bass, Michael Omartian on keyboards, and the great Lenny Castro on percussion (who would return on 1986's East of Midnight). Eschewing the overwhelming string arrangements on Endless Wire, Dream Street Rose benefits immensely from the light, tasteful touch of Nick DeCaro, who had done the string arrangements for many of Lightfoot's outstanding releases in the 70s.
Like many of Lightfoot's releases from 1978 on, Dream Street Rose suffers a little from some inconsistency and a lack of drive, but it's less noticeable on this album. The opening track, "Sea of Tranquility" sounds better than it ever has.

I have been a Lightfoot fan for decades. I find his music rich, lyrically appealing/entertaining. I tend to be drawn more to his mid period than his earlier or later stuff. Ol Dans Records is certainly one of my favorites BUT this I believe is my favorite of all my Gordon Lightfood records. I like the nautical theme and his haunting lyrics and vocally he was at his prime. Musky, masculine and down home, that is how I describe his music. A true form of the description minstrel, a great storyteller. I am so glad this is on CD now.

Ridiculous, yes. But in the 4+ years since the CD has been out of print, $60 is not out of the question for Dream Street Rose. It's a shame for those after this one - and for the equally out-of-print OLD DAN'S RECORDS, SHADOWS, and SALUTE - that the supply of CDs is pretty limited. Warners... Read More
