Re: Please help for a song I can't find

:lol: I too have been searching high and low for this song. I recorded a fragment of the song from somewhere, I believe it was ascribed to Nick Cave, but now I know, it wasn't Cave at all, but Laid Back. For once Google failed me, but the LC forum came through for me. Thanks very much. Its a beautif...

Re: SPRINGSTEEN vs. COHEN

Interesting discussion. My wife always tells me I'm too damn opinionated and stuck in my ways, which is probably true, so here goes. Springsteen - meh :roll: Zeppelin - meh :roll: Mann - meh :roll: Drake - meh :roll: Leonard Cohen - Drum Roll please :lol: : The Glory of God shines through, the sun c...

Re: Excellent Newspaper Article

Hi Mirka. Finally figured out what you meant by "gauging". I believe the word is "gouging" ;-) And sorry, but I gotta hit the dead horse just one more time. Then I'll shut up and listen to the music, I promise. The demand for poor seats was generated artificially and duplicitously by denying access ...

Excellent Newspaper Article

This article (see: http://www.contracostatimes.com/search/ci_12109671?IADID=Search-www.contracostatimes.com-www.contracostatimes.com) was in the Contra Costa Times the morning. As a long time fan (should I say disciple) of LC's since the early 70s, I was intent on finding something/anything to criti...

Re: Oakland Meetup

I originally suggested Yoshis but I think its a bit far. See suggestion about Lucas. Hi I'm coming from Santa Clara solo on Wednesday, April 15th, tax day, to see Leonard Cohen because I seem to be the only true Leonard Cohen fan amidst my compadres and family members. That is, I found out too late ...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Los Angeles, April 10 & 11

Hey we went to Berlin to see him figuring that at his age we might not ever get another chance. :D We're now going again in Oakland, my wife and I to the first show, and me alone to the 2nd. I have never seen Leonard Cohen live before. Tonight (4/10) will be my first time. I hear this current tour i...

Oakland Meetup

Anyone interested in a fan meetup before the show either 4/14 or 4/15? I hear there's a nice restaurant for a meetup just a block away.

Re: Oakland presale - reports??

Last night bought facevalue tickets for Oakland 4/15 in row F thru regular ticketmaster. Better than my tickets for 4/14 that I bought on the presale. Just goes to show that ticketmaster must still be holding tickets back.

Re: More about backup singers

Good information. Looked at some old pics of Sharon on the internet; you're right, it was her. Didin't realize she went back that far with Leonard. But wondering if one of the singers w. long blonde hair could have been Jennifer. Old pics also showed her with long blonde hair at certain times. Also ...

Re: More about backup singers

Nope. These vids go way back before Perla's time. You can tell by how young Leonard looks.

Re: The LA Shows

Yeah, your web page does look a bit scary. Can see why someone would be scared off. However, anyone who digs Leonard Cohen, John Lennon, and Woody Allen can't be all bad. btw, you need to change the font color; the red is too hard to read. Uh...I just looked at your blog, Terat...so....I'll pass up ...

Re: More about backup singers

Jeez Tom, how do you know all this??? :roll: You must be crazier about LC than I am :lol: Got another question perhaps you can answer. I saw two early concerts, one at the Berkeley Community Theater and one I think at the Warfield or Orpheum in San Francisco, both in the early 70s (I think around 19...
