Re: Roberta Flack's 'Suzanne' interpretation

most probably there are a hundred interpretations of the words in "Suzanne" dispersed in all the threads and topics on this forum.
How interesting would it be to get acces to all of them at the same place.

Quoting Michael Bromfield's article in" LEONARD COHEN IN QUEBEC. LESSONS OF A MASTER " in News : "But more was to come on the second night in Montreal when Cohen unveiled his gift to the people of Quebec.

Re: Leonard Cohen in Quebec - Lessons From A Master

" "The man is 78 and there is no other contemporary performer who can offer a concert experience that combines an unequalled quality of content and performance. Quite simply he is unique and we will not see his like again" Fittingly, Michael Bromfield's rendering of Leonard's life and times and pers...

Re: Ample white skirt or classic little black dress

Indeed if changes have been made with the instrumentists, making a change to the chorists's look by adding a little touch of feminity as suggested by tchocolatl would indeed be a plus !

Re: LA MANIC : Leonard's perfect offering to Montrealers

I am optimistically wishing that LA MANIC will ,tonight and/or tomorrow night in Boston, be part of the set list . After the warm welcome it received in Canada, even by predominently non french speaking audiences (outside of Montreal and Quebec), would it not be great if that song became part of Leo...
