A New Lightfoot Song, a Co-write, Has Been Released
February 8, 2016 - There's a new Lightfoot song, a co-write, which was released in February 2016, and is worth a listen. It's based on the second part of Cabaret, one of the less well-known gems on Summer Side of Life. Co-written by journalist Eric Greenberg, the locale has been moved from North Ontario to Buffalo, where Eric got to know Gordon many years ago. The recording artists are a Canadian band called Lightfeet (that's FEET). The song is available from Amazon here: Listen to clip or buy, and also at iTunes here.
Here is the press release from Eric:

Of the song "Up in Buffalo:, Lightfoot says: "It's very well done. I think it works," expressing his desire to "get it out" to friends, fans and the public.
