Here’s an incredibly rare signed contract for Gordon Lightfoot’s engagement at Cleveland’s La Cave in July 1965. This was a year before he released his first album, and probably to promote his first US single, I’m Not Sayin’. Lightfoot played for thirteen days, three shows a night, for the incredibly low sum of $275. per week “plus living accommodations”. This is signed by promoter Stanley Kain and Gordon Lightfoot himself. Wikipedia notes: “In 1965 Lightfoot signed a management contract with Albert Grossman, who also represented Bob Dylan. That same year, he signed a recording contract with United Artists and released his own version of "I'm Not Saying" as a single. Appearances at the Newport Folk Festival, The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson, and New York's Town Hall increased his following and his reputation.”
