Did She Mention My Name/Back Here on Earth [Beat Goes On]

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Every '60s singer/songwriter of note expanded their instrumental approach as time went on, and Lightfoot was no exception. For his third album, he worked with John Simon who would handle the Band and Big Brother, and occasionally used low-key orchestration. Though a tad more erratic than his earlier efforts, his songwriting remained remarkably consistent.

Back Here on Earth, the second half of this two-fer, was a retrenchment of sorts, recorded in Nashville with a three-piece acoustic lineup and a more countrified approach. It's not quite as outstanding as his first three albums, lacking highlights on the order of "Early Mornin' Rain" or "Black Day in July." Lightfoot never offered weak material on his United Artists efforts, however, and Back Here on Earth is still a very solid set.
