Re: New recording of the song "Book of longing"

I haven't been able to find the video so I haven't heard the new recording of the song yet but I am wondering if maybe it is an outtake from the "Old Ideas" recording sessions. If you look at the last page of the insert booklet for the album you'll see a hand written song list and running times for ...

Tower of Song CBC2 Online Stream of Concert

Here's a link to the CBC Radio 2 online streaming of last night's concert. Not sure if it will work in the UK but it is working good here in the USA. Wish I could have been there but unfortunately it was not to be. Hope everyone got whatever they were looking for out of the pilgrimage to Montreal :D...

Nashville Public Radio Story on LC in Nashville in 60's & 70's.

I just stumbled across this broadcast and story from Nashville Public Radio about LC's time spent in the cabin in Tennessee in late 60's-early 70's. I didn't see any mention of it here yet so I figured I'd share it. It's only 6 minutes long and contains some audio clips from Ron Cornelius and Sylvie...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I think I remember that there was an archive of work that wasn't to be released until after Leonard's death but I can't remember any details. Does anyone recall? Thank you to anyone who responds. That would be part of the 140 boxes of stuff he donated to the University of Toronto's Thomas Fisher Ra...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Am I in a minority finding the "Optional final verse" both inappropriate and offensive? My feelings are the same as yours. I am so sick and tired of every single web forum I visit, that have absolutely nothing to do with politics, will always have at least one politically charged posting. I came to...

Thank you Jarkko for shedding some light on the subject. I'm sure we'll all do our best to be patient as you have taught us to do over the years :D

Re: Back catalog reissues

I know that Columbia was in the process of reissuing Leonard's older albums with bonus material and re-mastering, but this seemed to be put on hold to capitalize on his newer material. Jarkko, or anyone else in the know, do you know if they plan to move forward on this again? If so, any chance we'd...

Leonard Cohen Film Festival in NYC Feb. 17-19th 2017

http://www.barnesandnoble.com/w/you-want-it-darker-leonard-cohen/30372340?ean=0889853709014 I picked up my vinyl copy of the album this afternoon at my local Barnes and Noble.

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

What a sad day for us all :cry: I guess we all saw it coming though many of us tried to look away from the obvious. I just watched the newly released blu ray version of McCabe and Mrs. Miller last night. At one point while one of his songs was playing my mind drifted to wondering if this would be th...

Exclusive Edition of the New Album Coming in the USA

So I went down to my local Barnes and Noble shop in the USA today to pre-order the new album and the clerk in the shop asks "Do you want the regular version or the Barnes and Noble Exclusive version?". Needless to say I was a bit puzzled by the question since I am a regular lurker here in the forum ...

Re: New Album: Leonard Cohen - Can't Forget on retail sites

Seems like somebody on DrH Guy's new website may be onto something with what will be on the new tour album. Seems the album may be made up of soundchecked songs never played live at a concert during any of the tours. This is copied from his website, NOTE THE REPLY TO SAM'S POST FROM DrH Guy who said...
