REVIEW Leonard Cohen Is My Spirit Guide (A Celebration of Leonard Cohen)

Compered by Kerry Shale (calling himself "also a Canadian Jew"), this evening of 19 Leonard Cohen covers [with a couple of 'related' songs] was a thoroughly enjoyable blend of music and poetry [all Leonard's]. In the Jubilee Church, Hull town centre near the City Hall, in a very comfortable seat a f...

Re: Bird On A Wire in Hull with Tony Palmer introduction

Arrived at the venue just after 7.30, time enough for a glass of beer. The Kardomah is a small intimate place, with a bar and cafe/restaurant. Doors into the seated bit opened at 8. Maybe enough room for about 94 people. The PA playing Leonard''s The Future, Closing Time, I'm Your Man, Dance me to t...

Apologies for my lack of diligence in not having checked the earlier posts on the lyrics from 'Diamonds' re-appearing in 'Treaty'.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

And earlier in Dublin 02.03.1985, also in 'Diamonds In The Mine', Leonard's final verse lyrics are:

"I seen you change the water into wine
That was a very pretty trick to do
And I sit at your table every night
And baby I just can't get drunk with you".

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Correction: listening to Vienna 06.03.1985 while typing; but just checked - and Leonard sings same lyrics next night 07.03.1985.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Presently listening to Vienna 07.03.1985 ... is that really 32 years ago!? In 'Diamonds In the Mine', Leonard sings the following verse "I haven't said a word since you been gone That any liar couldn't say as well And I can't believe the static coming on You were my ground, my aerial" which I though...

Re: Moving Picture Video of First we Take Manhattan

The lady is Anne Ditchburn. She choreographed the dance sequences. Seen a few years previously in Leonard's gorgeous "The Gypsy's Wife" in the 'I Am A Hotel' video-sequence.

Re: New book: LEONARD COHEN - His Essential Quotations

The "Complete Recordings Illustrated" book by A P Sparke is no such thing. Not only is it not complete, but what is in its 60 pages is often inaccurate. Two examples of the shoddy writing are on page 3, even before we get to the first album: Leonard's first album is NOT called 'The Songs Of Leonard ...
