Aretha Franklin covered Suzanne -- in 1972!

RIP Aretha. While tripping around the interwebs, reading tidbits about the Queen of Soul upon her passing, I stumbled upon this previously unknown fact. Did anyone else know she had recorded a cover of Suzanne back in 1972? I'm not sure what I think about it, though. She lends it her distinctive sty...

Re: Jeff Buckley: Just Like A Woman

Well that was either weirdly wonderful or wonderfully weird, I can't possibly be expected to decide which, at least not without a shot of Stoly and a pickle. Thank you, darling.

Re: LC wins 2018 Grammy Award for You Want It Darker!

Best ROCK performance?? They still don't know where to put our Leonard, do they? But we know. He just can't be categorized. At. All. It has always seemed to me that the Junos are a bit more erudite, more lofty & intellectual in many ways, than the Grammys, as far as awards shows go. Those Canadian s...

Jeff Buckley: Just Like A Woman

Exquisite cover of the Dylan classic--ranks up there with his cover of Hallelujah, IMO. A great voice gone too soon.

Recorded 1993, apparently only released last year, and heard by me 5 minutes ago! Enjoy!

[quote=vickiwoodyard post_id=365325 time=1497217784 Most of us Cohenites are rather reclusive people. [/quote] So true, dear. But what an exquisite lonesomeness it is, when these bunch of heroes are bound together across the miles with Leonard's words and music. And always raise a glass to Jarkko fo...

Back at you, Darling.
You know, I still have long red hair and I can drive a tractor.
But no way am I moving to Norway. You'll need to come here.

in one of leonard's songs he sings 'myself, i long for love and light', so why not give him just that: a garden of love and light.
