Gordon Lightfoot: "Did She Mention My Name?"

The first of two LPs released by Gordon Lightfoot in 1968, this was his third studio album.
This was Lightfoot's first album to make it to the charts, but only in Canada.
After he switched record labels - from United Artists to Reprise - and recorded his sixth LP in 1970 (the first with Reprise) did he achieve widespread success beyond Canada.
That sixth LP was originally called "Sit Down Young Stranger" but was renamed "If You Could Read My Mind" because of the commercial pop success of that song.
