ⓘ Gords Gold

Gords Gold is a compilation album released by Canadian singer-songwriter Gordon Lightfoot in 1975. Originally a vinyl double album, it was reissued on CD in 1987.

The first Lightfoot compilation to feature music from his 1970s Reprise Records albums, Gords Gold also includes re-recorded versions of several songs from his 1960s United Artists output Sides 1 and 2. This served to update the earlier songs to the same style as his later work and gives the album a level of consistency often lacking in similar compilations. Lightfoots reasons for re-recording the United Artists tracks were explained in the liner notes as being because "he doesnt like listening to his early work".

Despite covering only the first decade of his career, Gords Gold has remained the most commercially popular Lightfoot compilation. Of note, the 45 remix of" If You Could Read My Mind” appears here. In 1988 Lightfoot released a second volume, Gords Gold, Vol. 2, which also featured re-recordings of earlier hits.
