Thread Name: Cohen / Lightfoot / Tyson
Subject: RE: Tyson / Cohen / Lightfoot / Mitchell / Young
Might as well throw in Neil Young too. Young is only two years younger than Joni Mitchell and seven years younger than Gordon Lightfoot.

Of these five Canadian greats, I think Lightfoot wrote more songs that other people can do with ease. Much of Cohen's output is best done by him.

Tony Rice did Lightfoot songs on several albums. That's as good as it gets in guitar playing, song writing and singing.
