Last week, Gordon Lightfoot gave us a gift: he announced a new album, called "Gordon Lightfoot Solo." And that is exactly what it is.
The songs come from two CDs of songs he had recorded back in 2001 - 2002 and he had forgotten about them. He discovered them when cleaning his office, listened to them, and decided to make an album of songs with just him and his guitar. There is one more recently written song, "Easy Flo," All of the tracks were recorded at Grant Aveneue Studio in Hamlton, Ontario where he has recorded since the mid-1990s.
Gordon said of Solo, "I thought my fans would be interested in hearing what songs sound like when first written."
I'm working on a review and will publish it here as soon as I can. Check back here for the review, or sign up for my mailing list if you aren't on it yet and I will let you know when the review is posted.
The release date is set as March 20th for the CD, MP3 download and streaming. The release date for the LP in the US is April 3rd.
The CD, MP3 album and LP can be ordered now from Amazon US. The first single has been released and if you pre-order the MP3 album you'll be able to download that song immediately, as well as any other singles that may be released between now and the album release date.
The album is on sale at Amazon UK in all three formats. The CD and LP can also be ordered now at Amazon Canada.
The first two songs are available at many streaming sites and also at YouTube. It's a beautiful finger-picking song; vintage Lightfoot. As they say on TV news shows, "take a listen." And, now the second song, "Why Not Give It a Try" is available too. You can listen here.
