A country influence (via pedal steel) creeps into the arrangements on Old Dan's Records. A drummer is also included throughout, making this a much more contemporary-sounding album, as Gordon Lightfoot began to move away from his folk influences and into the pop/rock field. Sure, there still are the folk songs, such as "That Same Old Obsession," but this album was the seed planted that would flower in upcoming releases. A pivotal point in Lightfoot's career.
