Re: new book: Poems And Songs - Everyman's Library

So, what happens next: 1. Another book released next month called "Poems from the Road", a collection of the best poems from the previous two identical books. 2. Maarten plants another tree to celebrate 3 poetry books released in one month, all identical but different covers. (Maarten, I promise I w...

Re: new book: Poems And Songs - Everyman's Library

Gill, for a moment i thought you were suggesting that Kory would do this just to make more money. Shame on you! Don't you realise the second identical book will be released in case someone wanted to pay for the amazing dustcover?

Re: Bird on a Wire to be re re released by Sony

Thanks, Wendy. My faith in this site is being restored. I was just inches away from cancelling my trip to Hydra.

People need to remember that there are fans and there are also fans who happen to be businessmen. Thanks again.

Re: Bird on a Wire to be re re released by Sony

Hi John, I was only joking about the Cafe, and thanks for the compliments. Foxwood, There are no copies of any of the reels, except of a couple of home movies reels. I have just been watching a dvd with the home movies reels out of curiousity, and they contain lengthy film of Leonard when he was a c...

Re: Bird on a Wire to be re re released by Sony

Tomsakic, I don't blame you. The Leonardcohencafe is the last place I would buy anything. The guy who owns it knows nothing about Leonard, and is just a hanger on who doesn't even buy anyone a drink. Hopefully, he won't turn up at Hydra. He ruined everyone's weekend in Krakow. Amazon and Play.com ar...

Re: Keith James - Songs of Leonard Cohen tour

Thanks, Davido. I am going to see Keith for the first time at Canterbury. Also, he is doing a normal show in Broadstairs, where I live.

Keith James - Songs of Leonard Cohen tour

I have just spoken to someone who highly recommends going to watch this gentleman doing his tribute to Leonard Cohen. He is touring most parts of the UK and the concert dates are on this link, click on "concerts" when you get to the homepage:

Leonard Cohen in Israel

After the concert in Israel, I believe the profits were donated to a charity which helped the families of those Palestinians/Israelis who had lost family members in the conflict. Does anyone know the name of this charity or its website, please? I have a colleague who is interested in Palestinian aff...

Re: A part of history for sale (Bird on a Wire)

The precedents show that Steve has never lied, whilst others have. I will be at the reunion in 2012, and will remind you of this edited version.

Re: A part of history for sale (Bird on a Wire)

Neo,
thank you for that and sorry you can't attend.

As for the edited version of BOAW, Steve Machat doesn't think it exists. A collector i know did have a reel of BOAW, which was shown on tv, which someone recorded and this was used by Tony Palmer to help him reconstruct the damaged film.

Re: A part of history for sale (Bird on a Wire)

Thanks, Malbeanie. Steve has never bothered about the money. The money he is charging for these reels goes to various groups, and he will be lucky to break even on his investment. He wanted to release this dvd as a tribute to his father. Wouldn't any loving son do the same? I don't know how many of ...
