Re: Leonard on the cover - also contributions requested

You're very welcome, Vickie. Thank you for your post. Leonard Cohen was very much influenced by the Folk Music he listened to back in the late 50's (+ early 60's). The Kingston Trio were the top album sellers of that time, having 5 of their LPs reach the #1 spot here in Canada as well as the United ...

Thank you, B4real. Much appreciated. Regarding the prose: "Only left-handers are in their right mind".....I happen to be left handed !!!

Re: Is Adam Cohen singing the unreleased songs of his father?

LisaLCFan.... => all is good. Actually, the fact you thought I insulted Ms Lorca Cohen, and you wanted to come to her rescue, speaks volumes. No need to apologize at all, and I truly am sorry for any misunderstanding. Perhaps there is a "Treaty" we could sign. ;-) - Brucester (Montreal, QC, Canada)

Re: Is Adam Cohen singing the unreleased songs of his father?

No disrespect intended. Honest. Just wondering, that's all. I do know that it was Lorca who suspected Leonard Cohen's accountant was stealing money from him. ($5 million?)

Obviously he was being sarcastic. :cry: Not cool. Last week, I visited a friend (Susan) at the Jewish General Hospital (Montreal) o...

BTW when Leonard Cohen talked about The Kingston Trio song "Tom Dooley" (who was sentenced to hang) I remember saying to Leonard (at Beautys Restaurant).... "There must've been a knock on Tom Dooley's prison cell an hour before his hanging. The warden asked.... => "Who shall I say is calling? " (Leo...
