Re: Music You're Listening To

I became aware of the Swingle Singers many years ago, singing "scat" to a variety of types of music, and quite liked them. Then they reformed as Swingle 2 and released "Rags and all That Jazz" in 1975 (with real lyrics!) , which I listen to often, but this (Weeping Willow) is by far my favourite tra...

Re: occasionally I take an hour away from this Forum

BTW, did you buy your pony on the first Monday in September? I don't know when I bought her but she won so well the race before last, (we do not discuss the last race, and in particular we don't discuss the jockeyship). This Sunday it's lunch at the stables, and I can see Professor Galant without h...

Re: occasionally I take an hour away from this Forum

Do you mean the same Stevie who starred in an episode of Carpool Karaoke, with the hopeless James Corden? The conceit was that Wonder wanted to drive and insisted he had a license. How are you, Alan? That's the one! How am I? Delightfully, incredibly, superbly gruntled, and as usual, i'm peccable. ...

Re: Roscoe Beck in Conversation with Hattie Webb as part of Hattie's 'conversations with' series.

Thank you very much for posting this link. I really enjoyed listening to the chat between 2 friends.
At 2 hours and 20 minutes it may appear daunting, but believe me it is worth listening to.
Many Leonard anecdotes among other information.

Treat yourself,

Alan

Re: Interview: Perla Batalla about Leonard Cohen

Hi merton, Many thanks for posting this link. I really enjoyed watching the interview and listening to Perla's memories and thoughtful opinions. IMHO she and Julie were the best ever backing singers that Leonard had. Sadly I never saw them live, only on recordings. Their version of Anthem on Leonard...

Well done, I enjoyed it.
Ditto.

I really think this pandemic and its anti-social isolation have improved your literary skills.
Keep trying, lad, I'm sure you'll create a good pome one day.

Re: How vital, Leonard Cohen Poll?

There are 30,281 registered users of this forum*, nine of whom have voted thus far. This is certainly a happening place! *approximately 1,376 of those registered users are actually pseudonyms of solongleonard. Thus, theoretically, it could have been he who cast all nine votes in his own poll. Oh, N...

Re: Mysterious Leonard Cohen "1967 studio sessions" album - any information?

Could anyone post a Hi-Res cover pic and detailed track list here? In case, the 2nd batch disappear and we don't have backup. Thanks. Hi WiTS, I don't think Hi-Res photos can be posted here. There is a file size limit. You can probably do just as well yourself, but here is a screen print of the cov...
