Re: Jennifer Warnes

As an aside, I met Jennifer Warnes at an autograph signing at the Ottawa Bluesfest a few years back. She was incredibly nice. I told her what an impact Famous Blue Raincoat had on me. Prior to that album, I had been pretty much a rocker with only a few forays into folk music. That album opened up a ...

Re: Popular Problems: Memorable Lines

I keep waiting for it too.... I wonder if he did not go there because he's done it before. My favourite thigh moment is probably "But I lingered on her thighs a fatal moment" From this album, my favourite line thus far is: "A husband leads. A wife commands." And yes, I am married.... and sometimes I...

Tough call. Where do I think he should play his concert? There is only one city - Montreal.

Re: Report by someone who have listened to the whole album

It's always hard to say about these sorts of things. I really wondered if Dear Heather was about that too. The inclusion of Go No More a Roving but also the overall feel of several of the songs. It could be that this will be LC's final album, but it is also possible he is at an age where one reflect...

Re: New LC live CD announced: 'Back In The Motherland'

I have to say I refuse to buy bootlegs as I see it as someone trying to make money off an artists work without compensating them. That said, I have a lot of free bootlegs I have downloaded mostly from dimeadozen.org . For those who don't know about them, you might want to check it out (though it tak...

Re: Vote for Leonard Cohen - for McGill's Greatest Graduate

I am a big Leonard fan, but Wilfred Laurier got my vote though I was tempted by Charles Taylor. Leonard is a great artist but I don't put him in either Laurier or Taylor's league. Not trying to peave anyone off though.

Re: remastered series - Totally Abandoned?

That's- too bad. I bought all three remasters that were released a few years back and was looking forward to updating my library as they released the rest. Thanks for the updates!

remastered series - Totally Abandoned?

A few years back we had the release of the first three LC albums remastered and I know there were plans to remaster his entire catalogue. While I was aware that plans for future remasters were delayed, I am now wondering if they have been totally abandoned? Anyone know where things stand on these? C...

Re: Leonard Cohen turns down GLEE TV series

Unless I am missing something, LC cannot deny them permission for most of his catalogue because it got all sold off to Sony who I would guess now have last word in much the same way that the estate of Michael Jackson and Sony control the rights to covering Beatles songs.

Re: Ira Nadel's article - Globe and Mail, Sept 18, 2009

I recall an interview with LC when he noted that after leaving Mount Baldy he initially planned to write a novel. Does anyone know if ever started it and if its completely abandoned as an idea?

Cheers

Thanks as well Jarkko. I got great seats for Montreal last year and a moderately priced seat for Ottawa this year thanks to the passwords you made available to us. I appreciate all your efforts!
