Re: Harald Weinrauch has passed away

My wife Helen and I didn't know Harald as well as some of you but, on our many Cohen-related meet ups we always had a brief chat. A very engaging gentleman and a real character who always made us smile. Condolences to all who were close to him. He will be missed...RIP Harald.

Regards,

Scott & Helen

Leonard Cohen albums ranked worst-to-best...Far Out Magazine

Far Out magazine's view on Leonard Cohen albums ranking....Always controversial..... Surprises to me were Songs from a Room only at No.10 and Death of a Ladies Man as high as No. 5 ..however I'll leave it to individuals to decide as to how they view this list. :D https://faroutmagazine.co.uk/leonard...

Re: Father John Misty to cover Leonard Cohen on new EP Anthem +3

Thanks for sharing. I think that most of us here appreciate that other artists are influenced by Leonard and are trying to pay homage to him with their interpretations of his songs, however we've all come across some horrendous covers. While he doesn't fall into this category, I've heard a bit of FJ...
