Re: CONCERT REPORT: Vienne, August 18

So, it seems some people are rich enough to afford several concerts in a week, and always in the first ranks?! lucky Ken! Well, as far as I'm concerned, yesterday was my first ever LC concert and it was a great time. It was quite moving to see the man in the flesh, to actually see him performing the...

Re: June 26 - During the FIJM

you're welcome, Tchocolatl. To come back to what you said abour Buffy Sainte Marie, I guess you know "The Partisan" has always been in her repertory: she recorded it on her 1971 album "She used to wanna be a ballerina" (alongside with another LC song: "Bells") and the way she sang this song at the F...

Re: June 26 - During the FIJM

I'm watching this concert right now on a French/German TV (Arte) and it is very good. Leonard's son Adam sings a bit like his father. The other artists are good too, and there are interesting pieces of Leonard's biography inbetween songs, with old archive pictures of his childhood and throughtought ...

Re: 3 LC songs in French in "McCabe and Miss Miller"

Thanks very much for your investigations! After receiving Jarkko's reply, I looked for Graeme Allwright on the net and have found a cd of his, a "best of", in which we can find these three songs... http://www.mp3sparks.com/r2/Graeme_Allwright/The_Best_Of/group_72139/album_1/mcatalog.shtml?albref=14 ...

Re: 3 LC songs in French in "McCabe and Miss Miller"

Thanks for this fast and kind reply Jarkko! I am positive: it is Leonard singing, I recognize his voice, and it can't be a French singer, with this slight accent I hear. If you compare Leonard's French with the one on "the Partisan", it leaves no doubt about it. I will send you one of the tracks any...

3 LC songs in French in "McCabe and Miss Miller"

Hello, I hope my first message in this forum won't be something already said before (I have looked for it and found nothing so I guess it is new!) I saw Robert Altman's film "McCabe and Miss Miller" a few years ago on a French satelite TV channel (I am French, by the way) which enabled to choose the...
