Gordon Lightfoot Information Continued
Gordon Lightfoot's debut album Lightfoot! was released in 1966 and it brought him recognition as a singer as well as a songwriter. It featured many of his famous songs including "For Lovin' Me", "Early Mornin' Rain", "Steel Rail Blues" and "Ribbon of Darkness".
On the strength of this album, which mixed Canadian and universal themes, Gordon Lightfoot became one of the first Canadian singers to achieve real stardom in his own country without moving to the United States. The album was released internationally and was also well-received. It was followed by numerous other albums through the late 1960s. But he remained better known as a songwriter than as a singer, with cover versions of his songs recorded by artists such as Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash and Elvis Presley.
