AllMusic Review by

Beat Goes On's Very Best of Gordon Lightfoot, Vols. 1-2 collects both of the legendary Canadian singer/songwriter's early-'70s "best-of" sets on a single, remastered disc. These are not the versions of "Canadian Railroad Trilogy," "Early Mornin' Rain," and "Bitter Green" that he re-recorded for 1975's multi-platinum Gord's Gold. Rather, they represent the baritone-voiced troubadour's less opulent United Artists era. Listeners looking for a more complete overview of this period would be better off picking up 1993's superb United Artists Collection.
