Night Work

Dear friends, It's been a long time since I posted here but since I first started sharing my poems publicly on this forum I thought I would let you know I have a book of poetry and pictures now on kindle and in print- https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07DL5GHM3/ref=mp_s_a_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1528486301&sr=8-...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Dear friends, I'm very sad for us all. I've been a member for a long time but have not posted for awhile but need to express my sadness at Leonard's passing. It's with a strange feeling of loss, incomparable for someone I've never met. Thinking of Leonard's influence I go back to his own recollectio...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

wow, i liked leonard's recent albums but this is something else. i've not been moved by an album in this way in some time. it's exquisite chamber music. there's a purity and a surprise to it and depth to the sound. it has moments of real beauty.

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Amazing article. also amazing quotes from dylan, i'm not sure i've ever heard him speak so lucidly about another artist before it's quite an honour. im little disconcerted about the section where he balled out the interviewer for being late however- not sure what to think of it but for some reason i...

Missing Songs

I'm super excited about the new album... however a little sad not to see Feel So Good amongst the line up which for me is one of my favourite recent songs, it's filled with light and spirit and makes me want to wake up in the morning and rearrange my life. I note there are similarities between the m...

Re: Leonard recites That is What I Heard You Say in new TV s

hmm the subject of selling out is a complicated one. we all interact in the corporate world daily in one way or another- where we work, where we shop, what we buy... it's very hard to get away completely unsullied. in saying that my instinctive reaction is to dislike this. i know cohen has 'worked' ...

Re: mccabe and mrs miller

thanks dean. i would love to hear this but i don't hold out for it being available. perhaps the record label don't think it's worthy of a full release. however now we have the technology i think Sony should investigate doing fan releases of live shows and out-takes as paid for downloads. i would lov...

mccabe and mrs miller

Hi all, I just watched mccabe and mrs miller- great film. Besides the three main songs they seem to be instrumental guitar tracks throughout the film which i didn't recognise. the guitar sounds very much like cohen of this period but i didn't recognise the melodies. does anyone know if cohen is resp...

Re: Leonard's scarf

Thanks mnkyface,

The Burberry scarf is nice, if a little out of my price range. The others are interesting too.
I'll continue to scour the internet for a match.

Leonard's scarf

I'm quite smitten with leonard's scarf. It suits the winter months perfectly. Does anybody know where he may have procured it from?

Re: 2010 audience recordings (some available online)

Truly fantastic to have so many boots available, great work done by the tapers.
hope this question doesn't annoy anyone but does anybody have suggestion for best recording quality for any of these? i just don't have the internet speed or space to download them all. any help would be great.

Re: On That Day

Thanks for the response. I agree this is probably what he's referring to. However it's always struck as a very specific set of options, mainly as most people in the world were not within the near vicinity of the situation. I presume then he's talking metaphorically, about the general manner with whi...
