By 1968, Gordon Lightfoot was coming to terms with stardom and changes in the music world. His third United Artists album, "Did She Mention My Name", was produced in New York by John Simon, who had previously produced Leonard Cohen and the Band. The songs include a commentary on the 1967 Detroit riots, Black Day In July. Late in '68, Lightfoot returned to Nashville for the more acoustic sound of his fourth UA album, "Back Here On Earth". The 24 tracks here present the entirety of Lightfoot's third and fourth albums plus the New York remake of Spin, Spin. Other Lightfoot classics on this set include
Does Your Mother Know, Bitter Green, The Mountains And Maryann, and I Want To Hear It From You.
