Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

This is a suggestion based on that of 4’s at the very beginning of this LC album journey and one Vickie rigidly stuck to .... and I don’t know how she had the discipline to do it! We started chronologically first with the studio albums and then the live albums. We still have three live (including an...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Hi all, For the purpose of balance and contrasting observations (and advanced LC studies ;-) ) I thought I’d impart some facts relating to the actual songs themselves that happen to be on the New Skin For The Old Ceremony album. Some info you will know and some maybe not. Firstly from Leonard’s poin...

Re: ever wondered?

That was an interesting scenario with the 78 records! You could say its called living in the now :) I can’t lay my hands on my poncho at the moment because I’m getting renovations done and there are boxes and stuff and people everywhere! I actually haven’t seen it since last winter. I’ll look later ...

Re: ever wondered?

Hi again Geoffrey, I think my thought of the Einstein quote was because most of my working life has been professionally involved in the art industry and that includes being an art teacher. I have found that you can easily impart your knowledge of all art techniques to your students but it’s entirely...

Re: ever wondered?

hehehe! I never thought I'd ever see the day when Leonard would turn to "heavy metal" ;-)
That's very inventive, Geoffrey!

A second thought says he's very magnetically attractive this way as well :)

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

I am thinking of reading A Broken Hallelujah by Liel Leibovitz. It seems to be the most recent one that is strictly about him. Does anyone here have an opinion on that one? Vickie, I haven’t read A Broken Hallelujah so I can’t give you any first hand comments on the book. I am also going to move on...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Vickie, glad you experienced that astronomical event - they say it only happens once every 99 years! btw - it's very dry here too and there's a big bushfire in the hills - smoke everywhere - talk about The Smokey Life! I'll be so glad when the sea breeze comes in this afternoon to blow it away from ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

This is probably overkill but here's some previous links to my posts about this song on the forum. I was reminded when Jean mentioned about the photo I posted with my Cowboy Theme post that the info about this song's birth is just above the white horse. And Jean thanks for your insight into LC's rid...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

It’s lovely to wake up and see everyone’s contributions here. A little trivia below. At one of the 1985 concerts LC starts playing some chords not unlike the start to Famous Blue Raincoat, stops and then says “no, there’s something so humiliating as forgetfulness of the song descends upon me, it’s b...
