Editorial Reviews

Review

Other Musicians on Gordon Lightfoot

 “I can’t think of any Gordon Lightfoot song I don’t like. Everytime I hear a song of his, it’s like I wish it would last forever . . . Lightfoot became a mentor for a long time. I think he probably still is to this day.” —Bob Dylan

 “An extremely fine piece of songwriting.” —Johnny Cash on  “Canadian Railroad Trilogy” 

 “What a song—that’s my favourite on the record.” —Neil Young, about covering “If You Could Read My Mind” on his A Letter Home album  


 “Gordon had a real loyal following all over the place, including over in Europe. When he’d play in L.A., they would come out in droves. It was a ritual that, whenever he’d do his tour, all these people would come and see him. They loved him. A very talented guy.” —Robbie Robertson
