Though there are a number of fine Lightfoot albums, none is better overall than Back Here on Earth (United Artists, 1968). I'd be hard-pressed to name my favorite Lightfoot song, but "Long Way Back Home," which is on it, would be close to the top. Sunday Concert (UA, 1969) is also brilliant. It features "Leaves of Grass," arguably the finest folk-protest song of the Vietnam-war era.
