Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Exciting to see! But I wish Book Of Longing was on there as I loved the version we heard over the montage video at the tribute concert. Will that ever be released?

Re: Book of Longing: Audio Book, narrated by Leonard

Hi,

It was 3CDs all running just over one hour.

Helpfully, each poem is a single track making it easy to add them to playlists etc.

Re: Audio Books: Seven titles announced so far

That is great.

Does anyone know if they will be available on Audible as well as CD?

Book of Longing: Audio Book, narrated by Leonard

Hi, Just noticed that Amazon UK are listing an audio book version of BOL for release in early Oct. Does anyone know if these will be the recordings Leonard made for the Philip Glass project. Would be great if so. Book of Longing https://www.amazon.co.uk/dp/B07G5DVJTJ/ref=cm_sw_r_sms_c_api_soBFBb8JZW...

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

You can now order this from Pledge Music.

To get the CDs as well as the DVD you need to buy the Deluxe edition which comes to £85 including postage.

Can’t wait.

Re: New recording of the song "Book of longing"

I was also stuck by how great that was. I wonder if it was a musical accompaniment to the audio recordings he did of Book Of Longing for the Philip Glass project.

Re: First Aid Kit with friends - Leonard Cohen tribute on Swedish television

A link to the TV broadcast of the concert is now up.

It's really good and First Aid Kit do a great job of bringing a youthful passion to their covers. Also nice to have Leonard's poems read out in-between the songs.

Re: TOWER OF SONG: MEMORIAL TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN, MONTREAL

Does anyone know if it will be filmed and released as a DVD?

Would be great if all fans get a chance to see it.

Re: The song of Leonard Cohen (Harry Rasky)

So kind of you to share this for everyone.

I wonder if it will ever be released officially as it is a wonderful documentary.

Is there a rights issue that stops this I wonder?

Re: November 24, 1980 - Tel Aviv - 2nd concert

This is a truly amazing concert, great sound and a very highly charged performance.

The sound cloud one is 128kps, does anyone know if a higher resolution version exists anywhere?

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

There are no meaningful words. Leonard Cohen has brought immense joy, comfort and beauty to my life since I discovered his music at age 14. His work is part of my soul and it always will be. I will miss him and the songs we would have had. I'm thinking of his family, his fans and all those whose liv...

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

I wonder how best to help the new CD do well in the charts?

I'm in the UK and I heard that buying from HMV contributes to the chart figure, whereas buying through Amazon does not.

I want to make a contribution to it ideally becoming a No.1 album!

Paris Olympia 1976 FM Broadcast

Hi,

I have been trying very hard to track down an MP3 of the FM broadcast of the Olympia, Paris 1976 concert.

I have heard clips on You Tube, but can't seem to find the whole thing.

Would anyone be able to help, as I feel like I am missing out on this potential gem!

Thanks,

John
