Enjoy a trip down musical-memory lane. "Gordon Lightfoot: If You Could Read My Mind" pays homage to Canada and the talents of their most celebrated son, Gordon Lightfoot, an extraordinary singer/songwriter. The film shows fascinating original footage of Lightfoot over the years, along with many artists who have covered his songs, such as Johnny Cash, Elvis, Neil Young, Judy Collins, and Bob Dylan. Sparing nothing about Lightfoot's personal weaknesses and failures as well as his triumphs, this film covers Lightfoot's life and career in his own words, and those of his closest associates—and, of course, we hear recordings of his greatest hits.
