As a true Gordon Lightfoot fan I know that Old Dan's Records won the 1974 Juno Award in Canada for `Folk Album of the Year' and deservedly so - it is a superb album and would rank as one of my favourites. Yet another ten great songs penned and performed by the maestro featuring Red Shea, Terry Clements, and Rick Haynes who provide an acoustically excellent backing. A great collection of songs from a prolific songwriter - Buy it! Sit back and Enjoy!

Canadian singer/songwriter/acoustic guitarist Gordon Lightfoot was in the midst of his creative zenith when Old Dan's Records was recorded in 1972. So this album simply rolls from one melodic, emotional highlight to another.
For me, so many of these songs echo places and times...the piano driven ballad Same Old Obsession is like a melancholy Victorian-era drama...Lazy Mornin' suggests a idyllic day in the country...and despite its title, Can't Depend On Love has a wonderful lightness to it.
What's interesting about this album is the history of its time...in his book Lightfoot: If You Could Read His Mind, author Maynard Collins says Lightfoot was going through marital difficulties in 1972 (yes, they would lead to a divorce) and he was recovering from a serious bout of something called Bell's Palsy.
This affliction affects facial muscles, and Collins suggests pictures from that time (including the album cover) were done in such a way to hide the affected part of his face. All this makes the brilliance of Old Dan's Records even more astonishing.

There is no singer-songwriter on earth I enjoy listening to more than Gordon Lightfoot, and this is one of his very best albums, which is saying one hell of a lot. Gord`s never made a bad record, merely one or two below par. This one`s up there with Summer Side of Life & Sundown, it`s that good.
Considering he was having a tough time in his personal life during its recording (`72) the care and level of melodic & lyrical invention that`s gone into this all too brief collection of ten beautifully written songs is cause for rejoicing.
His opening tracks are usually something special, and Farewell To Annabel - typically catchy title - is a corker, a great song that`ll make you want to just sit back and bask in the rest of this painlessly perfect set of songs. Not one of them disappoints in any way, there are no `highlights`, this is simply a great Gordon Lightfoot album and as such is virtually beyond praise.
One track that stands out among so many fine songs is the suitably languid, utterly gorgeous Lazy Mornin`. It makes me wonder, too, why comparatively few other singers have covered his songs. Could it be that Gord`s originals are quite simply definitive? (Even k d lang on her 2004 Canadian covers CD didn`t try anything by Lightfoot - a sin of omission, to my mind - preferring to add to the absurdly numberless versions of Hallelujah, Bird on a Wire and After the Goldrush.)
Bob Dylan, a fan, once said that when listening to any song by Lightfoot, he wanted it `to last forever`. I know what he means. I have most of Gord`s CDs and to play almost any of them is to feel I`ve, so to speak, come home.
Old Dan`s Records - wonderful songs, beautifully played and sung.
