Re: Mysterious Leonard Cohen "1967 studio sessions" album - any information?

what's strange is the leak of the set doesn't seem to match this tracklist, so I'm wondering if someone retagged the set wrong, or if there's actually some difference here the 10 CD list you have quoted in your post comprises 28 different songs with a total of 152 takes. The link above this list sh...

Re: Here It Is: A Tribute to Leonard Cohen Concert

It's impressive how the jazz septet on the record maintained its formidable sound despite featuring a mostly new lineup of singers.

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

I know this isn't the proper place to ask this, but what is a "second fiddle"?

P.S. I can't find the option to post a new thread.

Re: Roy Montgomery: Last Year's Man

Through Montgomery's experiences, we see how music can evolve from initial resistance to appreciation finally, leading to unexpected exploration.

Re: Roscoe Beck in Conversation with Hattie Webb as part of Hattie's 'conversations with' series.

I’ve just finished watching this and yes, some interesting exchanges between them. Thought-provoking how the musical arrangement and lyrics for a new song by them about Leonard materialised.

Re: Tribute to LC at Kulturhuset Karelia

Lisa Theman's interpretation of Leonard Cohen's songs sounds like a beautiful and refreshing take on the iconic artist's work. Her soft and angelic voice offers a new perspective on Cohen's traditionally baritone sound, bringing a fresh dimension to these timeless classics.
