   I chose this informational DVD because the name Gordon Lightfoot sounded familiar to me but I could not place it. After searching online for his name I was transported back to my childhood when I clicked on a link for one of his songs. This DVD will transport you back as well into the era of the 1960s and 70s when folk, country, and rock music seemed to merge like never before. Mr. Lightfoot hails from Canada and is an extremely talented writer of both music and lyrics. His voice is smoothly beautiful which makes his hit songs like “If You Could Read My Mind”, “Early Morning Rain”, and “Sundown” stand out all the more. Like many great artists, Gordon had struggles with alcohol abuse but was able to overcome that and came back to his music stronger than ever. To this date Mr. Lightfoot is still touring, at least for those venues who have not had to postpone or cancel. If you would like to reminisce then I highly recommend this biographical DVD.

Overall Rating: A+
