MY DAD TURNED ME ON TO YOUR MUSIC AT A VERY EARLY AGE. HIS FAVORITE SONG IN THE WORLD IS "WRECK OF THE EDMUND FITZGERALD". YOUR MUSIC REPRESENTS SOME OF MY EARLIEST MEMORIES. NOW THAT I HAVE A SON OF MY OWN, I PLAY MY GORDO CD'S FOR HIM. HE LOVES IT! WHEN I WAS GROWING UP I LISTENED TO YOU ON 8TRACK! THE RECORDING MEDIUM MAY HAVE CHANGED BUT, THE CLASSICS STAY THE SAME. THANKS FOR THE MEMORIES! HAVE A VERY HAPPY 60TH BIRTHDAY AND MANY MORE!

I discovered your music when I was seventeen. As I made through college and law school and matured some along the way, I have found deeper meaning in the lyrics. I have been playing guitar since 1983. I started off playing a lot of rock and blues. I n w concentrate almost exclusively on folk with an emphasis on finger picking. Your music inspired me to go this route. I wish you all the best on your sixtieth birthday. Society consistently makes such a damn big deal of aging and birthdays--remember wh t Ralph Waldo Emerson said: A foolish consistency is the hobgoblit of little minds! I need more decoration for my office: what are the chances I could get an autographed picture? I tried to get one from you over the years when I saw three of you shows in Milwaukee and one in Grand Forks. But alas, I failed.

We really appreciate your talents and loved seeing and hearing you in concert this past June (Knoxville, Tn) It had always been a dream of mine and my wife to see you. Is there possibly anything that you can do to help get the Reprise 4CD's released? I hope someday soon to hear the complete song of Sea of Tranquility. Anyway, we want to wish you a GIANT 60th Birthday!!!! And may you have many many more. The Legend lives on.....!!!

I really lif that one song of yours, if i could only remember the name, i think it's paperback novel, but i'm not sure. It's the song that a group of girls covered for the new movie 54. well anyway Mr. Lightfoot, i hope you have a wonderful 60th birthday. Thanks f r the incredible sounds you create.

You never guess you would have a fan on this side of the Pacific, right? I knew you as a song writer for Peter, Paul and Mary for many years. But it was not until I went to Canada as an exchange student in Victoria, B.C. two years ago that I really learn bout your music in the original. I was thrilled and could not get out of it ever since. As you can imagine, I will want nothing but your music on my next trip to North America. Your songs are universal. I hope I can go to your concert in the nearest futur . Best wishes for your 60th birthday!

Happy Birthday Gordon! I have been a tremendous fan ever since I saw the movie Harry Tracy. I saw you in Paducah last night, and the legend really does live on. Pure entertainment! I have looked for the song that played during the end credits for over 10 years, I was going to play it in my wedding, but have never found it recorded. I have to resort to fast forwarding my copy of Harry Tracy to listen to it. I wrote you a note and left it on the stage during the intermission, but there were so many req ests, how could you have responded to each? I have sang "Don Quixote" to my daughter since the day she was born, so now you have a 3 year old fan! Good luck and never quit. You are an extreme talent and storyteller, the last of a dying breed. Love to ou and yours!

I played that incredible song "If You Could Read My Mind" as a dj at a Fargo country station while going to college. The voice was Everyman, sophisticated and simple, and also true to Canadian roots. "Rainy Day People" remains an ode to tenderness for me and "Cafefree Highway" a recognition of wanderlust. But in the end to me what distinguishes your artistry from other gifted talents is your under-appreciated poetry....the spine-tingling lyricism of "RR Trilogy" & "Edmund Fitzgerald", e.g. Now there s always a time in this great land when wild and majestic Lightfoot is said and is sung. I had you playing in my car tonight before I came across this card and loved seering you for the first time last year at Universal. Happy 60, Gordon. Let's go for 00 or more! Please keep writing and performing. THANK YOU for joy! (Ditto to your great and loyal guys in the band.)

Happy Birthday Mr. Lightfoot. I have enjoyed the lyrics of your music for so many years now. My other favorite performer, Jimmy Buffett described you once as one of the great songwriters, who he tried to emulate. He has done well in his endevors and you a e a good writer to aspire to. I thank you for all the meaningful words. "Fine As Fine Could Be" was played for my wife and I at our wedding Oct. 9, fifteen years ago, and your new albums seem to be coming out at our anniversary every five years now. What gift!

GOrdon, You are my fathers favorite singer. Since he first heard you, he couldn't put the music down. He has been to your concert as well, a long time ago. Since i was born i have grown up with your music. I listen to it even to this day. We vacation in the Thousand Islands on the St. Lawrence River. Your songs are great listening, especially up there. Happy Birthday. P.S. is there any way i could have you autograph an album, or send my father something. That would be his ultimate dream. Sincerely, Robert Rasmussen e-mail: rasmuss2@tcnj.edu

Happy Birthday Gord! Your music and poetry has been an incredible blessing to me over the last 22 years. I had a chance to chat with you after a concert in Reno at the Pioneer Auditorium a few years ago. For years Song For a Winter's Night has been my avorite but Restless may replace it! I have been playing a instrumental version of it on my guitar...I probably play over 50 of your songs....I know what your thinking (Get a life!) Anyway, may God bless you...How about a few more songs about your thoug ts on Him?

I've been into Gordon Lightfoot's music since "IF You Could Read My Mind" hit radio when I was a kid. My brother bought several albums and really fired my enthusiasm when "Edmund Fitz" was a hit. My Mom is just a few months younger than Mr. Lightfoot, and she became interested in the "Great Lakes" and shipwrecks in the area through "Edmund Fitzgerald". We both love Gordon's songs, but I'm the only one in our family who has had the good fortune to see him in concert. He's performed twice in the past ten years at the Embassy Theatre in Fort Wayne, and I've enjoyed both shows very much. It's just like Gord's playing your living room! Very good sound quality, which a lot of artists don't get in a live situation. I just wish P.W. was still playing pedal steel in concert with Gord!!! I'm waiting for Gordon to come back to Fort Wayne, and I've been looking for info on any new C.D. info. He said he was working on a new album last time he was here, but I haven't heard anything! Any info, please E-Mail me here at the radio station!! I'm the Production Director for our sister stations WLDE/WAJI. Thanks for the chance to "wax enthusiasm" for my favorite artist! I'm sure I'll never get to meet Gordon, but if I could I'd say thanks for the superb musicianship, lyrics, and outstanding live shows! Happy 60th Birthday!! -Matt Myers 9/10/98

However, I wanted you to know that it was a pleasure dealing to you. Hope you have a fabulous Birthday!! I also hope to see you again soon here in Vegas! Good luck in life and poker!! Take Care! br>

I was completely smitten by your music. I taught my guitar students all your tunes and most interesting chords. Thank-you for your everlasting contribution to music in our country(Canada) Although I live in the U.S. I treasure you and show you off with immense pride. Best Regards for a long and happy life.

Thank you for your career. Your songs have accompanied the highs and lows of my life, and I have made poor attempts to cover them for reasons both pure and profane. "Beautiful" was a "sure thing" in my wilder days and "The Pony Man" and "Pussywillows Cattails" soothe my son every night. I regret that I will probably never get to thank you in person for your gift to me and mine, but hope you will get this message. Happy Birthday sir! My the years ahead be many and productive.

So..I'll work on the ones I have for now. I'll never be able to sing with the same emot on that Gordon does though. (Also..I have the "Sundown" album on LP..so it shows how long Iv'e liked his music.)

I believe Gordon Lightfoot is the greatest singer songwriter of the last 30 years. No writer today can match the lyrical style, imagery, or detail as Lightfoot has captured over the span of his career.

Happy Birthday Gordy! Thanks for all the fabulous music. I've seen you in concert more times than I count. This summer's concert in Santa Fe, NM was, for me, one of your best. I listen to your music when I'm sad, when I'm happy, when I travel, and any chance I get. You're the best. Your lyrics are awesome and the music sends me. Thanks for all the years of joy. I'm looking forward to your next CD. Affectionately-Lil

Thank you for the years of magic. Last saw you in concert in Jacksonville,Florida in 1984. My wife Dorthe and I lived there for a year, but heard the song" Whispers of the North" for the first time at that concert and new I had to go north. Though I liste "Whispers of the North" as my favorite, its really a draw between that and "Restless". Again, thank you from the both of us.

From listening to your songs, I've learned to play most of them on the guitar, in fact, your music is the very reason that I taught myself how to play in the first place!! I wish you a very happy birthday, and I'd like to congratulate you for making so many people feel so many things, through your music.

The melody and words of each song take me to moments in my life since I was 16 years old. Thank you for continuing on your life's mission of music through the years. Although we have never met in person, I am truly honored (and grateful through the gift of this wonderful web-site) to wish you a Happy 60th Birthday and hope that you do not feel that I am being pretentious in signing this message as a friend.

I've never met Gordon, but he taught me how to play the guitar and sing. My wife and friends tell me I sound just like him! I'm not professional(yet), but I've sung some of his songs to audiences which greatly appreciate them. Then there are the Friday evenings when I'm too tired for much else, like tonight, and I'll play & sing some Lightfoot. Great tunes, great words! By the way, I'm from Canada and just moved to the US. I hear Gord's coming somewhere near (like maybe Branson MO?). If you can send me the details I'll bring my family and maybe a couple of other families along! John

Mr. Lightfoot, (Gord if I may), Wow, after having spent so many hours listening to your music over the years I am thrilled to have this opportunity to wish you a happy birthday. With your music you have the ability to reach down into ones soul and make contact with this persons inner ost feelings and emotions. Many times your songs have nearly brought me to tears as they cause me to truly think about events occuring in my daily life. (If Children Had Wings Comes to mind). I can only offer my sincerest thanks for "being there", if only on vinyl or a CD, when I needed to listen to you to put things into perspective. Again, thank you, God bless, and have a wonderful birthday!

In the 70's, when my kids were young, I used to strum chords and sing to them a lot. My 3-year-old kept asking me to play his favorite song, but I couldn't figure out what it was from the title he gave it, "Snow". He'd raise his hands and wiggle his fing rs as he brought them down, like rain. I finally hit on it one day as I was playing from your songbook. You've probably guessed, he was describing the line "Flickering down through the snow" from Circle of Steel. Happy birthday.

Happy Birthday Gordon!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! You have brought so much happiness into the lives of your loyal listeners. I listen to your music constantly and love to play your beautiful ballads on my guitar. I made frequent trips to the local music store after the issuing of each of your albums, in order to buy the music and words so I could learn o play and sing each song... you have brought so many glorious hours of pleasure to all of us. I spent the entire year of 1971 away from Canada,fortunately my parents loved you music and bought all of your albums at that time on 8 track. You and your music kept us from getting homesick, and my parents car ecohed with your voice and ours ever day for hours. Seeing you in concerts in Edmonton has been heavenly. Best wishes to you, Canada's ambassador of music and culture on your 60th birthday. May you live long and prosper, Your fan, Wayne
