"Sundown and The Wreck of the Edmond Fitzgerald were my two favorites by him.
The Edmond Fitzgerald song has to be one of greatest storytelling events ever known. I would call it many things, mesmerizing, unforgettable and a masterpiece.
Lightfoot did both the writing and singing and the performance was incredible on both accounts.
All of I know about the actual event or wreck is courtesy of the his song and from a one hour documentary that the song made me want you to watch years ago. I think his work honoured the crew memory and cherished them and the families that survived them.
