Gordon Lightfoot was more than just a Canadian singer/songwriter. He was a prolific poet and storyteller.
Although it doesn’t contain my favorite song by him, “The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald”, “Sundown” is my favorite Gordon Lightfoot album. Besides, the title track on this album ranks a close second favorite.
“Sundown” is Gordon Lightfoot at his absolute best. His baritone voice is soothing and invigorating drawing you in to lyrics that tell stories of life and love and are perfectly suited to Lightfoot’s distinct brand of mostly acoustic Canadian folk rock.
