Re: Cost of "You want it darker" on Amazon.co.uk

Phew! Thanks Wendy. I also noticed the inflated price on amazon and wondered whether it was for a special, super duper limited edition package - but now the mystery is solved. I can now put my order in together with the new CD by Vangelis..DAMN - free p+p on orders more than £20 and both CDs are £9....

Re: Glastonbury 2008

Thanks for the responses. It's all very frustrating that the cameras were there but it probably hasn't been recorded for posterity. Oh well!

Glastonbury 2008

This might have been asked before ... It's very frustrating that Leonard's performance at Glastonbury was not shown, at the time, on BBC. The Daily Telegraph voted it no.1 in the top 100 Glastonbury performances so it must have been good :) Is there ever going to be a chance to see it? Will the BBC ...

Tir na nOg - September dates

Tir na nOg were honoured to play at the Leonard Cohen Event in Dublin in 2014. It's great to see some Cohen fans at Tir na nOg gigs. These are the gig dates for September. I think the tickets for the Electric Picnic Festival are sold out. Sun 4th Sept - The Electric Picnic, Co. Laois, Ireland Fri 9t...

Re: R.I.P. Andrew McGeever

This is so sad. I was fortunate enough to meet him in Liverpool when Leonard last played there.
He was so proud of his son's music ventures and sent me copies of Daniel's wonderful songs.
It is such a shame that he didn't get to enjoy his retirement in full.
A sad loss. R.I.P. Andrew

Re: R.I.P. Clive Palmer

Very sad news. We saw him with the Incredible String Band about 6 or 7 years ago - albeit without Robin Williamson but with Mike Heron.
We fondly remember their 'Ducks on a Pond'

Re: Happy Birthday, Leonard!

I try to capture the words
for these lines
but there are no guarantees
that they are stolen
from a man
who has sentenced me
to forty years
of longing.


Happy Birthday, Leonard.

Four days and several PMs on, I have finally managed to place my order through Amazon. Amazing what happens when I really look at what's on the screen.

Re: The Diamond's Mine (one year on)

I have a feeling I have to settle up with a maths teacher for the unsigned copy I have. Can one of his appreciative readers tell me if it has appreciated in price? I think Harry's guitar would be fair payment :) No rush at all Padma. I know we will meet again sometime somewhere. I'm still feeling v...
