Movie Reviews

Gordon Lightfoot Shines in Reno
Brian Mcnamara | Universal City | 11/29/2006
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a great video that captures the feel and spirit of Gordon Lightfoot. It covers a mix of his material and shows what he does best... play great songs that are really well written with meaningful lyrics. As with all great shows, it's only fault is that it's too brief.
If only Lightfoot had more live performances on DVD...

"More than any recent CD, this DVD rekindled my interest in Gordon as a poet and master of melodies. The one and only live DVD of Lighfoot is an excellent mix of retrospective and some newer pieces, and the flow keeps it interesting throughout. I had not yet purchased the 1993 CD "Waiting for You," when I first viewed this - and the selections in this video from that CD caused me to purchase it the next day. "Restless" in particular jumps out - I found it to be a powerful piece with some fine innovative picking on Gordon's part.

Having seen Gordon front row on two occasions, this DVD rings true to what one can expect from a concert. I took my 14 year old son, a devout Nirvana listener (we listened to them on the way to Gordon's show), to a Lightfoot concert in 2007, and even his electric guitar ears gained a respect for Gordon. I noticed him listening to acoustic songs by the Foo Fighters not long after. Not a bad conversion for a 68 year old artist to influence.

In summary - there's a lot of good things that most of Gordon's ongoing fans will already know, along with some surprises if you have not been listening for a few years. It would be nice if Gordon would do this at least one more time with selections from his 2004 Harmony CD (this DVD preceded that CD by a few years). It would be particularly nice to hear and see performances of Inspiration Lady, Harmony and River of Light.

I wish there could be another 40 plus years of music as fine as this with more live video."
Misleading and inferior

"I just bought this DVD. There is NO indication that it is exactly the same as the Live in Reno DVD! This DVD seems to be of lower quality, too, which surprises me because it is a European import. So save your money on this one. I will be attempting to return this to Amazon (wishing myself good luck)."

"Since the early 7ties Gordon has been on my 'Most Wanted Ones To Watch Live" list. Living in Belgium didn't make that one easy :-) I'm quite sure he never came over here. In the Sundow days most artist didn't. Now the "Rock Werchter" 3 day rockfest is voted as "World's Best". Things change, that's for sure. So did Gordon. "Ooh doesn't he look old" was my first reaction watching this Reno concert.A look in the mirror kept the shock away, so I watched G. and the band play. This DVD is more than I thought it would be. I've seen a great writer and performer, handling his great songs with the love and respect they deserve! Always Good, sometimes Fantastic! Thanks Gord, it's Cold On The Shoulder and I love it!"
