I wrote this review a few years ago, but I am happy to report now (10/10) that Affair on 8th Avenue is BACK on the digital album! You can download it individually or as part of the complete album. Gord's Gold is PERFECT again! :o) Thank you!
If and when they decide to re-release this CD including "Affair on 8th Avenue" (one of my favorite songs from the set), is when I will buy this CD...if just for this version of that song.
Lightfoot's work here is impeccable, moving and gorgeous. It is pure romance (whether about trains or women) that challenges our eaar in this markely unromantic and even unchivalrous age. As other reviewers have noted though, it suffers a major lack -- the decision of the producers to leave "Affair on 8th Avenue" off this collection. You can get a copy of this tune from other sources, but Lightfoot's slight reworking of the tune for Gord's Gold is an improvement on the orriginal. Worse than the omission is the reason given in the liner notes, which (adding insult to injury) suggested that the song was left off to incraesd our enjoyment.Gimme a break! Spend a quarter boys, and make this a double CD if you must. But leave 8th Avenue alone!
This odious lapse aside, it is a pleasure to get reacquainted with one of the premier songwriters and singers of our era, even if the radio won't play his stuff anymore.
