Re: CONCERT REPORT: Montreal,Quebec - November 28th & 29th,2

Lots of tweets and texting that Leonard Cohen performed a cover of Georges Dor's "La Manic" at the Montreal second concert. Here is the link to a post on my Leonard Cohen Scrapbook with some background information about the song. Leonard Cohen Performs Beloved French-Canadian Song "La Manic" by Geor...

Try sending a PM to Scott, forum name "scocoh" and he can direct you to Sifa.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Chicago, Illinois November 23, 2012

Thank you Joe for your speedy and wonderful detailed report. I thoroughly enjoyed every word. I love the way LC keeps it fresh with new twists to his banter. And very interesting news about Rafael's drum solo in Darkness. That indeed is a fresh addition. Thanks again. I'm so glad that you and Anne h...

Re: "A Leonard Cohen Shabbat Service" Wilshire Blvd Temple 1

Thank you to everyone for your kind words. It really was a very special Shabbat service. After the sevice was over, while having refreshments, the Rabbi "debfriefed" me at length about how I discovered LC and how I got involved going to so many concerts...the subject for a future post.

Re: "A Leonard Cohen Shabbat Service" Wilshire Blvd Temple 1

I split Rabbi Leder's opening remarks into two parts intending to make a separate video when he talked about Leonard Cohen's ANTHEM. Then I forgot to upload the second part. My apologies. Here it is. Rabbi Steve Leder begins the service (part 2) ANTHEM Rabbi Leder quotes from Ralph Waldo Emerson's e...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Los Angeles, CA - November 5, 2012

I really would appreciate having a copy of the "official" setlist of the Nov 5 LA Nokia concert.
Does anyone have a setlist they could scan and send to me please?
Thanks,

http://img99.imageshack.us/img99/2527/wilshirelcshabbatcover0.jpg I heard about the Leonard Cohen Shabbat Service shortly after I returned home from Leonard Cohen's Portland concert with the thrilling tour debut of Joan Of Arc, my sixth concert in 14 days. Even though all I wanted was to stay home ...

Re: Concert Report: Seattle, WA - November 9 2012

Webbs are performing If It Be Your Will again now, not Coming Back To You. When I asked for a selist, I was given two sheets off LC's monitors which I thought were duplicates. It turned out they were not. This is the second sheet with a list of songs for the second half of the concert printed in ve...

I agree. In all the six shows I recently attended, Austin through Portland (skipping San Jose) the only repeat of a song happened in Los Angeles at the LA Nokia. Otherwise it was business as usual.

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Portland, OR - November 11, 2012

I put together three clips of Leonard Cohen having fun with the Portland audience. This is my description in the one minute+ YouTube video. In his intro to "The Future", Leonard Cohen told the audience that he wants to start smoking again when he's 80 and do it on the road. Portland was an enthusias...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Portland, OR - November 11, 2012

One more song from the Portland concert, "Take This Waltz" Hattie does such a beautiful solo. When the song is over, LC takes his bow and leaves the stage. The band put down their instruments and walk off the stage waving. Many in the audience have gathered their belongings and start to leave. They ...

Audio of intro to Ain't No Cure for Love. This is yet another Leonard Cohen gem. He had just finished singing DARKNESS and started off with: Jesus Christ...have to lighten up...because it really isn't that bad. I don't think so. But I did... Middle part, a variation of his remarks in Seattle, inclu...

Re: we NEED an album of LC spoken poetry

In 2006/2007 Leonard recorded the whole Book of Longing reading for the Philip Glass project. In 2008 I suggested him a special edition of the Book with those recordings on CD(s). What a brilliant idea, Jarkko. WOW. I would love to have such a set. Any chance of reminding him again about this? He n...
