Re: 60 Versions of Leonard’s 'Hallelujah,' Ranked --Newsweek

For me the Leonard version on the bootleg Blossoms of Heaven, Ashes of Hell is still my favourite. He travels through the emotions and drags your heart along with him, a masterpiece. I just love all the song versions on this 2 disc bootleg, wish it was able to be "officialised" so that more people c...

Re: Isle of Wight 1970 photo of Leonard

Around 1970ish a friend of mine gave me one of her prescribed Mandrax tablets (before they were 'listed') because I was having trouble sleeping. It knocked me out totally and the following morning I discovered I had vomited in my sleep (sorry but no nicer way of saying it springs to mind) which I ha...

Re: Next announcement on Jan 2

Does anybody know what time announcement will be made this morning Irish local time? Kali Hi Kali I long ago got fed up with trying to work all the times out on my fingers, especially when summer time kicks in (not just for Leonard shows but also for tennis matches around the world) so now I use th...

Re: The Holy or the Broken - book about Hallelujah by Alan L

Hi Cheshire gal I'm glad you like it, his voice gives such gravity to the emotions, and I love that it has the original "do ya". The "Blossoms" collection of recordings, they fill 2 cds, is a bootleg so, as such, it would be illegal for anyone to profit from selling them. A friend gave me disc 1, wh...

Re: The Holy or the Broken - book about Hallelujah by Alan L

I have listened to so many versions of Hallelujah, including many of Leonard's other versions several of which I own, but this one, on the bootleg "Blossoms of Heaven, Ashes of Hell" is still my favourite. I am grateful to the bootlegger because otherwise I would never have heard this. It is phenome...

Re: A new perspective on ' Come Healing'

I agree, your cat is beautiful and has exceptionally good taste (as do all cats). My daughter was doubtful about this until she saw it with her own eyes. When she was moving back in with me, her house rabbits were installed here beforehand and they live in the same room as the computer for most of t...

Re: MEET THE BAND

It is great to see a violinist included this time. I thought he had been listening to his fans when he featured a violin several times on Old Ideas and I expect he will include most of the tracks on the tour. So many of his other tours had sublime versions of great songs, i.e. Closing Time, Who By F...

Re: OLD IDEAS WORLD TOUR: CONCERTS AND TICKET INFO

Fantastic! But is Leonard not coming to England again, we love him too! Eve x I am sad also Evie, but maybe a venue will be announced later. I am staying hopeful even though he did miss us out last time round. Fingers crossed! All the British newspapers' wonderful reviews are quoted which is a bit ...

Re: Leonard Cohen To Attend PEN NE Award, Ceremony To Be Web

I think Leonard was staying out of the way and far too cute to get mixed up in the excruciating 'jam session' on live tv with out-of-tune guitars and even more so out-of-tune voices :lol: My guess is that if he had picked up his guitar and started singing something like Crazy to Love You he would ha...

Re: Crazy to Love You: out-of-tune guitar?

It is too early to say for sure but I think this will continue to be my favourite track on the album, though I find that Show Me The Place rings round my head for hours after I listen to it, such beauty in its simplicity. I am torn. What I do know is that Crazy makes me smile in so many places and w...

Hello Jonny Thank you for posting your friend's review of Old Ideas, I very much enjoyed reading it. It was interesting to find that his preferences coincide with my own, at least in these early days, but as any fan of Leonard knows all that could be turned on its head in the fullness of time!
