Re: Leonard Cohen, Untold Stories: The Early Years

Hi Leslie, I am not quite as far along in the book as you, but I am having a very similar reaction. I found the style a little off putting at first, but as I have become used to it is quite effective. Since the book is mostly dependant on peoples memories and impressions there is much conflicting in...

Re: Leonard fans should watch Mr. Mercedes (also, a bit about Stephen King)

Has anyone else here caught the Leonard Cohen easter eggs in this show yet? Yes, just finished the two season series on Peacock Streaming here in the U. S. First of all, I should say that I am a Stephen King fan and have read the book(s) in this series. I thought the Leonard covers were very approp...

Re: New book on 'I'm Your Fan' and Leonard covers

Finished the book this morning-the end is not as good as the beginning as it talks more about tribute albums in general and several individuals who have specialized in tribute albums. However it is worth getting for the entire chapter devoted to our webmaster and the history of his relationship to L...

Re: New book on 'I'm Your Fan' and Leonard covers

I'm about 2/3 rds of the way through this book and enjoying it very much. Talks much about the late Hal Willner and tribute albums in general and how Les Inrockuptibles chose the musicians and songs. Also how John Cale's version of "Hallelujah" lead to its overwhelming success. I recommend it.

Anne and I send deep condolences to Regina and family. We enjoyed Harald so much-have such great memories of him during the Yorkshire Walking Weekend. He was so much fun. We will miss him very much.

We will miss Dick so much. Anne and I were talking today about how Dick showed us his favorite parts of New York City. He was so fun to be with. We send our deep condolences to Linda. Rest In Peace, Dick.

First Yoshio Tanahasi who traveled all the way from Japan with his wife Keiko and Bob Showalter who's wife Carol was the Leonard fan. Carol and Bob ended up sitting right behind us at Leonard's concert...

Re: Picture Show of 2012 Madison Event

For the dinner and dance, we had the Klezmer band, "Yid Vicious." Unfortunately there weren't any recordings from that night. As an aside, Linda Straub had handed me her phone while we were on Union Terrace and it was Esther Cohen and she was very excited that we had a Klezmer band for the finale. H...

Re: Memorial Box Set re-scheduled to 2021

Hi Lisa, First of all you realize that it is a numbered set, if I recall correctly of 300 boxes, so many, many would be a subset of that. All I can say is that I was asked to test out the original website and those folks told me that sales despite the negative comments here were brisk. I'm am very s...
