Gordon Lightfoot
Living Legend

Gordon Lightfoot is a living legend. His music was discovered in 1964 when he was performing on the Toronto folk scene. His songs were covered by Ian and Sylvia, Peter, Paul & Mary, Bob Dylan, and Marty Robbins, who took Ribbon of Darkness to the top of the Billboard country charts. If You Could Read My Mind was Lightfoot’s greatest hit, reaching #5 on the Billboard Chart and becoming one of the most covered songs in popular music history. He has five Grammy nominations and 17 Juno Awards (the Canadian equivalent) and was inducted into the Canadian Music Hall Of Fame in 1986. Six of his albums have gone "gold" or higher, the most re-cent of which was Gord's Gold Volume 2 which was certified gold in September, 2001.

Gordon Lightfoot is one of the best songwriters in the 20th Century, and 'Beautiful' is the first-ever multi-artist tribute album that has been released anywhere! All tracks were newly-recorded for this tribute. This CD is executive-produced by Colin Linden (producer of Bruce Cockburn) and has been mastered by John Whynot, who has worked extensively with Colin. It includes an Incredible first-rate package (a 20-page booklet) designed by Juno Award-winning artist, Michael Wrycraft. Every artist has a complete page, along with comments on Gordon Lightfoot and/or their track, full track credits, and pic-tures of every artist re-done in the style on the cover.
