Re: Buxton, England 1st Sept.

Ken, you're right of course. The Prince of Yorkshire is far more complex, poetic and funny. Your suggestions sound good to me. I don't know the area, and if nobody else shows up here to bash out a plan, maybe the group is sufficiently small that we can sort our itinerary in the pub on the first nigh...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I would love to be able to read Cruz, and other Spanish Poets in their native tongue, but I can't. Me too! I'm Your Fan, Ursula, Mat --I will enjoy reflecting upon the Cruz you've copied/added notes and music links to here. Gracias. I don't think anyone has found a direct reference to the line, if ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

we know that your 'sentence' has been one of the heaviest that any of us has had to endure. I felt a bit irritated when you started adding 'irrelevant C'mon Di, I had it easy. It was all of you that had the difficult 'sentences'. Burdened in mortgage, successful educative exploration, marriage and ...

Re: Artists similar to Leonard Cohen

A good thread to re-surface, John. Here is an artist I have already enthused about elsewhere. He is certainly dissimilar to LC in style and content, but I feel similar in message: Ludovico Einaudi. Maybe it's just because I listen to LC and LE interchangeably. See this track, Waterways , from the In...

Re: Attaullah Khan - Live at the Old Fort, India

You would never get away with dancing around barefoot singing about God in Europe or the US. Hats off to all practicing mystics, of whichever stripe! I cannot speak for Europe but you clearly have not visited San Francisco :) ! As Mr. C says... It is here they got the spiritual thirst You're right ...

Re: Buxton, England 1st Sept.

As you know, I have given up writing nonsense on this forum, so naturally didn't expect to join this thread. But, reading Hamlet this afternoon, I am aghast at the realisation that the B&B Phil and Jean got thrown out of was quite literally part of a Shakespearean tragedy. I mean, Liptrot, Prince of...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Nice links, I'm Your Fan. Boss, not just your brother Mick but thousands, millions of others too, me included (if you're meaning is, as I take it to be, that many don't even get to be 'innocent' as young children). I guess I could have left that Schopenhauer out of my post, but I saw it the other da...

Dear Doron, Joe, Adam, Vicki, Violet, Steven, Mat and every other lovely person in this thread - I am too busy at mo to write (don't think I have anything to add anyway), but thanks for your thoughts!
