Re: A Request for Mr. Cohen

Greetings Maria: Thank you for stumbling upon this request. I think by saying what you have in your post you have already lent support to our request of Mr. Cohen. But if you wish you can elaborate on your reasons for wanting Mr. Cohen to publish his poetry in his voice as spoken word. Thanks again,...

Re: 'The Partisan' by 16 Horsepower / Noir Desir

Thanks so much Tom: This is good info. And I love the way you share the story behind your pursuit of this music. Indeed 16 Horsepower, and now Woven Hand they both belong to the genre of music I refer to as noirish. As do Nick Cave, Tom Waits, and Tindersticks. Of course Tom Waits is different thema...

Re: 'The Partisan' by 16 Horsepower / Noir Desir

Wow!! I must check out Wovenhand. By the way Tom how many CDs have Wovenhand put out, and if you can give me their titles I would very much appreciate it.

Thanks in advance,

Re: 'The Partisan' by 16 Horsepower / Noir Desir

Thank you johnny7moons for sharing what you know about Noir Desir. I have had this track but didn't know it was 16 Horsepower featuring Noir Desir. And I have always admired the work of 16 Horsepower, Sackcloth 'n' Ashes especially. It would have been sublime if they could have retained the musical ...

Re: A Request for Mr. Cohen

Charlajoy: Your words beautifully articulate the wishes expressed here. Regardless of what the musically accomplished say, for me Leonard's voice is incomparably beautiful, rich and soaked in love. This is true even when his "judgments are severe', and his words tell us that the future is murder. I ...

Re: A Request for Mr. Cohen

Thank you RitaMarie for your support of our request. I would like to think that Mr. Cohen does read our posts. Perhaps not all of them but some of them. It is possible what I am saying is more wishful thinking than anything else. But even if my wishful thinking is an illusion I continue to dwell in ...

Re: A Request for Mr. Cohen

Greetings everyone: Lizzy’s rightly points out that “Leonard’s legacy as a poet is still apart from him as singer-songwriter, musician”. It faithfully reflects the spirit of the request made to Mr. Cohen. It has been said that there is darkness under the lamp. As admirers of Leonard’s work we have t...

Hi Everyone: Thanks so much for sharing your experiences, pics and videos. It brings everything to life for the rest of us. In fact your personal experiences made me feel like I was there myself.

Re: A Request for Mr. Cohen

Hi Paula: I am glad you think Leonard reading his poems as an audio publication is an excellent idea. Let Leonard decide the rest. None of us need speak or think for anyone else That is why I am asking. Neither should we be setting terms and conditions under which someone else should do something or...

A Request for Mr. Cohen

Dear Mr. Cohen: As you probably know *now* better than ever before and better than anyone else on this planet that people do indeed love poetry, especially yours. This has been proven abundantly by now from the sold out (and last minute added on “one more night”) performances that you have are still...

Re: July 2008 performances of Glass' Book of Longing in Europe

Richard: Thank you for pointing out the difficulty with my observation about Leonard's work being interpreted by others. You are right, I guess I oversimplified what I wanted to say when I wrote, "...or to put it more simply it needs to come from whichever place in the psyche it was written from". Y...

Re: Montreal Tribute Concert Broadcast August 1

Many excellent names on the list. But Lhasa de Sela I absolutely love her!!! Most of her work has been in Spanish (I have both of her albums). I hear more of her debut album titled "Lhasa" and find it simmering with sensuality and beauty. I think Lhasa singing Cohen would be the perfect marriage and...

Re: July 2008 performances of Glass' Book of Longing in Europe

Philip Glass's "Book of Longing" CD is now available in stores. However, I am *extremely* disappointed that other than a couple of tracks and some fragments by Leonard, about 90% of Leonard's poetry tracks are sung by others. And I am sure the "others" are great artistes in their own right. But as f...
