CHICAGO – Patrick McDonald of HollywoodChicago.com appears on “The Morning Mess” with Scott Thompson on WBGR-FM (Monroe, Wisconsin) on July 30th, 2020, reviewing the new Video-On-Demand film “Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind.”

Lightfoot of course, is the Canadian hitmaker from the 1970s and beyond, with such classic songs as the title tune, SUNDOWN, CAREFREE HIGHWAY, FOR LOVINME and BEAUTIFUL. But his origins go way back into the 1960s as the boy from small town Orillia, Canada, goes to the big city Toronto and connects with a TV country music show, joins the folk scene, starts to write hits and goes to America to make it big. He is considered The Beatles of Canada for his ability to create memorable songs, and the many Canadian pop artists he influenced … including Randy Bachmann, Burton Cummins, Anne Murray, and Geddy Lee. Locally, it’s available for virtual download through MusicBoxTheatre.com.
