Review

The second volume of Gord's Gold follows the same tradition of the first, but in this case, it doesn't make sense, for re-recording tunes which were already in an updated sound defeats the purpose. Perhaps Lightfoot just wasn't too thrilled with the original mixes, so rather than remixing, he chose to do them over again. Included are such new versions of "The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald," "I'm Not Supposed to Care," "Cherokee Bend" and "Race Among the Ruins," along with one new tune, "If I Should Please You," which had often been performed in concert but never recorded for an album... ~ James Chrispell
