Sorry Gord. Stephen Fearing’s version is the best.

Bold statement indeed, but notice that he didn't back it-up with a link to prove his point!! :twisted:


Edit: Actually, I just went on to youtube to look....it's amazing how many people have covered this song! 8)

Nobody does it better.
Mind you I'm a little biased as I think Eva sang every song the best. :D
Jeez, now I have an uncontrollable urge to plop " Imagine " on the TT.

No one will ever leave an imprint on music in Canada like Gord Lightfoot. No one.

Nobody can touch Gord. When he sings a tune, he owns it. Especially one he's penned himself.

That being said, I also dig Elvis Presley's version of 'Early Morning Rain'.

I like the Lightfoot version.
But I also like Ronnie Hawkins version on LP (The Hawk in Winter).
He also does a fine version of "Home from the forest".

Gord will only care about how much money other peoples' versions will make him.
