Hosted by Herohill: Turning Back The Pages … [LP]

Herohill, a Canadiana blog based out of Halifax, has warmed my Kanuk heart on this fine CANADA DAY with an ambitious project they released today in honor of one of our greatest Canadian folk heros, Gordon Lightfoot, the man behind anthems like  “The Great Canadian Railroad Trilogy” and “If You Could Read My Mind”. Gordie’s the bomb and so are his timeless songs, so it’s rad that Herohill commissioned several Canadian artists (+ one American) to record original covers of his songs they then collected into a compilation album titled Turning Back The Pages Of My Sweet Shattered Dreams, a nod to a lyric from Gordie’s classic “Carefee Highway.

You can stream three tracks from the project below, a washy “The Summer Side of Life” by Andrew Sisk, a stripped bare “Alberta Bound” by Cam Penner, and a floating “Changes” by Digits, then head over to Herohill to grab the eclectic album FOR FREE.
