Bob Dylan Sings Gordon Lightfoot – Happy Birthday Gordon Lightfoot

I can’t think of any Gordon Lightfoot song I don’t like. Everytime I hear a song of his, it’s like I wish it would last forever.

One thought on “Bob Dylan Sings Gordon Lightfoot – Happy Birthday Gordon Lightfoot”

  1. Is it just me, or does it sound like Bob sounded several degrees better of voice when he slowed the tempo down … yikes, these performances were about 30 years ago!
