Monday 12am ET: Feature LP: Gordon Lightfoot – Sundown (1974)

Sundown is Canadian singer Gordon Lightfoot’s tenth original album, released in 1974 on the Reprise Records label. It reached No. 1 in the US on the pop chart, the only Lightfoot album to achieve this. In his native Canada, it topped the RPM 100 for five consecutive weeks, first hitting No. 1 on June 22, 1974, the same day it reached the top on the south of the border.[1]

The album marked the pinnacle of Lightfoot’s acoustic folk-country blend before he embarked on an increasing use of electronic instruments, although he did include some electric guitar, notably on the title track.

As for singles, the title track reached No. 1 on the pop and adult contemporary charts as well as #13 on the country chart, while “Carefree Highway” reached No. 10 on the pop chart, No. 1 on the AC chart and No. 81 on the country chart.
