Re: Avalanche Quartet - Livestream 2nd of May

Nice to hear those songs that were not in the recent tours any more ; travelling lady, the window, you know who i am ... Henk Hofstede was singing songs he really loved, one can feel that : he was opening his soul, allowing us to feel his own vulnerability. I hope to see the quartet some day, and sa...

Re: First We Take A Manhattan Then We Take A Berliner (weisse 2017)

does it taste as nice as it looks? (the label and the beer itself are nice enough - but i don't like clear glass for beer)

Re: Who by Fire by First Aid Kit (tribute album)

Long time ago, on "the scandinavian report", there was a version of "Suzanne" by Christel Alsos that did not find much appreciation by one of the most senior members of this forum. I agreed with him, and hope he will be more pleased with this new version ; to me, it's o.k., this time. This time, it'...

Re: Looking for an axplanation for "Seems so long ago Nancy

this is one of many good reasons to come back to this forum "now and then" : people who pick up threads that live on for many years ; seeing people who, like real good friends do, reply to words from someone they've perhaps never met, but helping other people get better understanding of songs that a...

Re: Symphonic tribute to Leonard Cohen

mooi concert, maar ik had eigenlijk gehoopt dat het in het Fries zou gezongen zijn ; als je de begeleidende tekst leest, dan merk je hoe mooi die taal eigenlijk wel is (en hoeveel het lijkt op ons westvlaams, als je het uitgeschreven ziet)
bedankt voor deze tip

Re: EVENT RESCHEDULED TO 2022

well, that's all right, i'll just have more time to get used to being retired, and perhaps lend a hand here and there, if practical help is needed. One can only hope that the bank will not charge "negative interest" on your account, as organising things is not going to get less expensive.

Re: New 1970-1971 recordings available on Apple Music

the receiving and sending of those recordings was probably as important as the recordings themselves, to me : i have even kept the envelopes, with "exotic"stamps from "all over the world", because the sender of one more live concert recording was a real person, who had taken the time to write my add...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Auckland, New Zealand – December 21, 2013

Today is 21 December 2020. Here downunder, tonight is the 7th anniversary of this Auckland 2013 concert. As we know it was the very last ever concert for Leonard and today I inexplicably felt the need to commemorate it. I was offered a front row seat to this concert by a kind and thoughtful Canadia...

Re: New 1970-1971 recordings available on Apple Music

thanks to everyone on this forum, not only for the help with these recordings, but for your kindness in all the years i've been strolling around here. Especially thanks to you, Maarten, for your support, your help and for what you're doing for all of us. I hope i can one day "pay you back" for all y...

Re: New 1970-1971 recordings available on Apple Music

i can't download anything from these recordings, here, in belgium. Could anyone, anywhere else, buy the whole collection of these albums for me? '69 was my first Leonard Cohen year, so the sound of these years is very special to me. Thank you very much in advance.

Re: Graphic novel about Leonard

pre-order possible, 20€, Fnac France.
not the largest book, 19x26cm, but it looks nice enough to go for it
your local bookshop will probably find it for you, too, so perhaps it's better to go find it there, and support the smaller stores

Re: never-ending gallery

I've never been able to enjoy drinking wine from a box. It seems to take all the fun out of the experience: I absolutely love the activity of removing the cork and that wonderful "pop" sound it makes. It is even somewhat enjoyable to remove a screw-top (if that's what there is), which makes a satis...

Re: BEST COVER VERSIONS OF A LEONARD COHEN SONG OF ALL TIME

another BIG italian to me, is Roberto Vecchioni https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=m-WbRC4wS-4 This is his "version", but calling it a cover is not giving him enough credit : he is far too good, both as musician, singer, writer of beautiful songs this is his way of treating a great song : 'È soltanto u...

Re: BEST COVER VERSIONS OF A LEONARD COHEN SONG OF ALL TIME

i think that Fabrizio De André was an important person in the LC history in Italy, as he translated and performed LC songs, before they were known in the original versions by LC. I absolutely adore his voice, and the kindness one feels when listening (or watching to) him. His translations were sung ...

i discovered this band through this cover of hallelujah, and found out that they made many more beatiful songs, like https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-uG0HypButc
