End of Love 2CD set

Does anyone know anything about this 2cd set from a 1993 Zurich broadcast? It's selling on Amazon for $18.59 in the U.S.

Thanks, and it's good to be back!

Re: New book: Tangle of Matter & Ghost

Mmmmmm... delicious! The writings on Leonard and his body of work continue to become more and more serious. What Leonard has worked for all his life. Lizzy, I don't know if you remember me, but you shipped me a Holocaust memorial pin several years ago. I'm glad you're still on this forum. Best, Gli...

Re: Worst ever LC tracks

........almost anything on "Death of Ladies Man" (except for "Memories," which is so delightfully outrageous). For me, the album, for a variety of reasons, doesn't work, but I really think it's pretty anomalous relative to the rest of his work. Outside of that album, I really can't think of anything...

Re: In times of great suffering

Margie, beautifully expressed. The connection you feel with Leonard speaks well to the magic of his uncanny ability to connect several levels beneath the surface with listeners, just as that that ineffable mystery serves as the connecting tissue of the Forum itself. So frequently, I can feel his mus...

Re: Director of "Phaedra" Jules Dassin dies at 96

Dassin was not only a great director, but a classy, gutsy human being. Blacklisted during the U.S.'s McCarthy blacklist, Dassin left behind a thriving directorial career ("Night and the City," a Richard Widmark [also recently deceased] noir classic) to try desperately to revive his ruined career. It...

Re: Thompson Vs Cohen Poll

Actually, I'm starting get a hankering for LC's version on "Live Songs," C&W ala his Buckskin Boys days.

It's a hoot!

Re: that bloody Buckley Hallelujah again

A minority voice for the majority: I like Buckley's version......of course, the whole damned thing is so subjective, I'm not sure discussion can get much behind "I like this and I don't like that," but here it is: I find his take harrowing (in a good way). There's an underlying desperation, of being...

Re: I find Leonard's Music Absolutely Liberating

Re Leonard's being depressing, or writing music to slit your wrists by: I recall Roger Ebert saying to Gene Siskel on their show a number of years ago, that a "feel good movie" had nothing to do with whether or not it was a comedy or tragedy. Any well-made film was automatically a feel good film. Le...

Re: "If it be Your will."

For me.........the Wainwright, Wasser, et. al version of Hallelujah. Too bad it never made the cd soundtrack.

Re: HAPPY BIRTHDAY, LEONARD!

Dear Leonard, Happy birthday!

Re: Monsieur Camembert: Famous Blue Cheese

Dear All, Just wanted to let you know that I tried to buy "Famous Blue Cheese" from Amazon in the U.S., and after about a month wait got an e-mail this morning saying that they were not able to get the album from their usual sources, and were canceling the order. So, I just ordered the album from EB...
