Gordon Lightfoot Albums
Harmony is Canadian country music singer Gordon Lightfoot's 20th and most recent studio album. Recorded in 2001 and released in 2004, it reached #35 on the Independent albums chart.
A Painter Passing Through
A Painter Passing Through is the nineteenth original album by Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot, released in 1998 on Reprise Records. It was his first album of original music in five years after Waiting for You, which had been his first since 1986's East of Midnight. Well-known record producer Daniel Lanois makes a guest appearance on the album. A Painter Passing Through is a live studio album.
The song "Drifters" was performed by Ron Sexsmith on the album, Beautiful: A Tribute to Gordon Lightfoot, in 2003.
Waiting For You
Waiting for You is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot's 18th original album, released in 1993 on the Reprise Records label.
It was his first album since 1986 and represented a comeback of sorts, since he had stated that East of Midnight would be his last. The album is dedicated to his wife Elizabeth and son Miles. Lightfoot produced the album himself.
It is considered a return to form after his previous two or three outings which had moved more into the adult contemporary genre with greater use of electric guitar and synthesizers.
East of Midnight
East of Midnight is Canadian musician Gordon Lightfoot's 17th original album, released in 1986 on the Warner Bros. Records label. The album reached #165 on the Billboard 200.
Lightfoot enlisted keyboardist and producer David Foster on the song "Anything for Love", which reached #13 on the Adult Contemporary chart and #71 on the Country chart.
Salute is the sixteenth original album by Canadian musician Gordon Lightfoot, released in 1983 Warner Brothers Records. It barely registered on the charts and is one of his least known recordings. Consequently, songs from the album very rarely feature in Lightfoot's live performances.
The album completed Lightfoot's shift from acoustic folk/country compositions to a more sleek adult contemporary sound, a shift he had begun on Shadows. However, he had never completely abandoned his folk roots, as "Whispers of the North", "Knotty Pine" and "Tattoo" show.
In general, the album was more upbeat than its introspective predecessor with an even greater use of electric guitar licks and synthesizers.
Shadows is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot's fifteenth original album, released in 1982 on the Warner Brothers Records label. It peaked at #87 on the Billboard charts.
The album marked another significant turning point in Lightfoot's musical evolution. He moves further away from his acoustic roots through greater use of synthesisers and electric organ.
The album is softer in composition than its immediate predecessors with a return to slower, more introspective ballads as compared to the faster, country style of Lightfoot's mid-1970s albums.
Although a commercial failure, critical reception of the album was positive.
"Baby Step Back" peaked at number 17 on the US Adult Contemporary chart and #50 on the Billboard Hot 100. It also reached number six on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart.
Dream Street Rose
Dream Street Rose is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot's 14th original album released in 1980 on the Warner Brothers Records label. The album peaked at #58 on the country chart and at #60 on the pop chart.
The album continues in the style of Summertime Dream and Endless Wire, with a mix of faster-paced, country style songs and introspective folk ballads. Lightfoot's penchant for seafaring songs was again evident with three songs featuring an ocean theme.
The album also featured a recorded version of "The Auctioneer" which had been a concert staple for Lightfoot, although it seemed somewhat out of place when compared to the rest of the album's material.
It was also the last album that would see Lightfoot collaborate with long-time producer Lenny Waronker.
It was one of the first albums recorded digitally.
"Dream Street Rose" reached #80 on the country singles chart.
Endless Wire is the Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot's thirteenth original album, released in 1978 on Warner Bros. Records. Although the album continued in the musical and writing style of Summertime Dream, it marked the beginning of the end of Lightfoot's commercial success as a recording artist, although he remained both a prolific songwriter and popular as a live act.
The closing track, The Circle is Small, was a re-recording of a song from Lightfoot's fourth album, Back Here on Earth.
In the USA, Endless Wire peaked at #22 on the Billboard pop chart and #14 on the country chart. "The Circle is Small" peaked at #3 on the adult contemporary chart, #33 on the pop chart and #92 on the country chart. It reached #1 on the Canadian Adult Contemporary chart. "Dreamland" peaked at #100 on the country chart. "Daylight Katy" reached #16 on the adult contemporary chart and also charted in the UK at #41.
Summertime Dream is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot's twelfth original album, released on the Reprise Records label in 1976. It peaked at #1 on the Canadian RPM national album chart, and #12 on the US Billboard pop chart.
The album marked Lightfoot's commercial zenith in a remarkable period of popularity which had begun with the 1970 hit, "If You Could Read My Mind". He would never again achieve the same level of commercial success.
The album shot to popularity on the back of the haunting ballad, "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald", which told the story of the final hours of the SS Edmund Fitzgerald which had sunk on Lake Superior in November 1975. The song remains popular to this day and has been credited with making the sinking of the Edmund Fitzgerald the most famous maritime incident in the history of the Great Lakes.
"The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald" reached #1 in Canada on November 20, 1976. In the US, it peaked at #2 on the pop chart and #50 on the country chart while "Race Among the Ruins" peaked at #65 on the pop chart.
