Re: Official video released on Youtube of "The Hills"

...One error appears to be that the line ...."I can't make the hills" appears as "I can make the hills" on this video. Quite a difference in meaning I would suggest. In Book of Longing I have only seen "I can't make the hills"..? The same "typo" appears in the printed lyrics in the booklet that cam...

Re: EVENT POSTPONED

Dear friends, First of all, I want to stress what has been said already: thank you, Maarten, for all your efforts. It must have been a tough decision, but it was the right one, to postpone the 2020-event. My (absolutely personal!) preference would be to schedule the event in 2021. An argument that ...

Re: EVENT POSTPONED

Hi Maarten, I hope this finds you and yours well. I think you had no option but to take this difficult decision particularly given recent updates on the potential longevity of this pandemic. Its very disappointing for all concerned and no doubt even more so for you and the team. Personally, I would ...

"Dance Me To The End of Love" - Whitehouse Farm

Last night (29th January) in episode 4 of the ITV six-part drama "Whitehouse Farm" featured a scene with 'Dance Me To The End of Love' playing in the background. It sounded like Leonard's original "Various Positions" version which was released in 1984, around a year before the events of August 1985,...

Re: THE FLAME - Reviews

The reviewer certainly doesn't hold back with his critique of this publication.... He is as entitled to his opinion as anyone, and, as a widely published poet himself, is probably more qualified to assess the work of others than I. However, reviewing the history of Mr Logan, he strikes me as someone...

Thanks for this personal insight Joe. Poignant, funny and moving. For me, you’ve captured your enthusiasm for this publication, and you admiration for Leonard’s work perfectly. Your highlighted choices here have further whetted my appetite for more of “The Flame”.

See you down the road….

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

While it’s exciting and welcome news that we will have the opportunity to experience some of Leonard’s unfinished songs, I think we should reserve judgement. I’ve seen Adam perform live and have a couple of his album recordings. I’ve enjoyed what he does and would go to see him play again. However, ...
