(3-CD + 68 page booklet) After George's biggest hit, Abilene, in 1963, he began recording in a folkier style, what he called "songs that had story lines, painted pictures and, most importantly, songs that said something." When he heard Gordon Lightfoot on the radio while touring Canada, he focused his attention on a crop of up-and-coming singer/songwriters from North of the Border. Soon George was recording 'folk-country' songs by Lightfoot, Joni Mitchell, Leonard Cohen, Ray Griff, Ian Tyson, and many of Canada's brightest young songwriters (many of whom would go on to huge solo careers). George became immensely popular in Canada, and had his own television show broadcast out of Hamilton, Ontario. Between 1965 and 1975, George Hamilton IV recorded six albums of all-Canadian music (some of which were only released in Canada). This collection is the first time that these Canadian songs by Hamilton have ever been compiled, and will excite many of George's fans who have never heard this great material.
