Since 1966, Gordon Lightfoot has released 21 original albums, three "greatest hits" albums, two albums of live concert recordings and a Warner Brothers Complete Singles 1970-1980 album. Pictures of many of these albums are included here at the top; the selection may change from time to time to showcase different albums.

Dream Street Rose, Shadows and Salute on 2 CD Set

There's an import 2 CD set with the three original albums from the early 1980s, all of which are out of print and very difficult to find. They are Dream Street Rose, Shadows and Salute. In this new set, the first CD contains the first two albums; the second CD contains just the third album. I am excited to have this set available for purchase from my store: Buy from Val. This is a UK import, so UK fans might want to buy from Amazon UK, where the price and shipping are probably better for you.

The following is a list of all of Gordon Lightfoot's original albums, the two Gord's Gold albums, the four CD boxed set, and the 2002 release Complete Greatest Hits. I have also included a his very first LP, recorded back in 1962 with his high school friend, Terry Whelan. It's not an official "original album", but it is beautiful traditional folk nevertheless.

Almost all of the original albums are available on CD or MOD (Manufactured on Demand) CD-R today. The "Final Four" original albums to be re-released on CD finally made their first appearance in the summer of 2002 (read more here). His latest studio album is the 2004 release, Harmony and his latest CD, All Live, was released in 2012. Click on any album title for the full list of tracks, for clips of many songs, and for lyrics for all of them.

Thanks to Cathy Cowette, Sean Gaynor, Ed Mullen, Lisa Westbrook and Deirdre Callahan for help with lyrics files.
