Re: Montreux (8th july)

Ok, some time have passed after the show and I can say without any hype: IT WAS AMAZING. First of all - sound of never heard quality. Oh my God, what a sound it was! Crystal clear, subtle and wonderful. I fell in love with Webb Sisters - especially during "I Tried To Leave you" :oops: I was also ver...

Re: Montreux Ticket Sales

After few unsuccessful attempts to buy any tickets available, I managed to buy the cheapest one, 140 euros. Is it really a bad position? Is the Stravinsky auditorium very big? Do you know any hotel nearby where to book a night? That's the question that also bothers me very much. Does anyone knows a...

Boris Grebentshchikov covers "Alexandra Leaving"

This guy with almost intranscriptable name in latin is one of the most famous Russian songwriters and performers together with his band "Aquarium". And now I found him covering "Alexandra Leaving". Very simple cover, just guitar and voice. It is written in the page that it's "Summer home recordings"...

Re: "So long Marianne" Video

On my request Tom at Stonewallstudios has made this video of the song "So long Marianne".I think he has done a great job. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=yZxyupt__Bk Was thinking of uploading a Divx version to the ftp site of the video but as there has been so little interest for it i'll let it be. ...

Indeed it's a great one, but only "Live" version. I tried so many times to translate it into my native language and I always was confronted with huge difficulties. And of course the lines: I showed my heart to the doctor He told me I just had to quit Then he wrote himself a prescription Your name wa...

Anyone else know of any covers they deem to be improvements on Leonard's original? Mmm, I am not sure if it is an improvement but in my humble opinion this cover is at least as good as a Leonard original: "Fisrt We Take Manhattan" by Joe Cocker. Dem The one and only decent cover of this song is by ...

Are you kidding? Honestly, I can't see what person who's not a Cohen's fan might see worth in it. It's absolutely straighforward and even dull. Unfortunately.

I have soundtrack of that also (you can hear "Democracy" on Master Poems bootleg), bought it in regular shop in Croatia (interesting piece of spoken...

Ok, I know that I'm a bad guy who's using e-mule and other copyright infringing stuff, but by using it I found something really interesting and maybe someone has any ideas: I found videos on "The Gypsy Wife" and "Memories". It seems that both of it are comming from the same director, because approac...

Bulat Okudjava probably is the best one performers from older ones. I'm not much in fond of Vysotsky. But there's also Boris Grebenshchikov (BG) and his band "Aquarium". BG also did a couple of english albums but they are much more worse than his worst album in russian. Try to listen to some of my f...
