Comes A Time album. I was kid-dancing to this once upon a time.

Agreed.

Neil's version is pretty much note for note, but still doesn't approach the original.

Wish I had never given the first edition away.

This song, especially Ian & Sylvia's original version, evokes Canada better than any other. A true, timeless classic beautifully covered by an expat.

Automatically give Neil a 8, no matter. This is a good s{#Cheesygrin}ong from a very fine album. Again unpegged. Welcome back!

One of his best albums, but it never got the recognition.

And you got Nicollete Larson singing back-up...like Linda R did on a previous album (After Gold Rush, or Harvest?).

I've always loved this song, but his performance of it with his wife singing Nicolette Larson's part at the Toronto SARS concert a few years ago will always be what I think of when I hear it. It was touching to see them perform together as a team like that. Sad that they are divorcing but I guess that's life.

Ian and Sylvia-?  Gordon Lightfoot-?

... I've no crystal ball but I don't think Neil will be around Alberta for a while. Concert was sold out and he was given very little press coverage. That all aside - terrific to hear him do his thing. Sing it Neil.
