Re: Bluesman Bob Walsh

Thanks for the music of another recently lost Québécois.

I like this Hendrix cover that youtube kindly suggested: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dQN0qeCdJeI

So glad you alighted back on the forum, stubborn friend:-)

Au revoir.

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Hello Doron - I tend to be more of a reader than a writer in these intriguing in-depth discussions. You're right, there is so much going on at the moment. Also, I am sure we have plenty of time to get through the album, so your absence will be fine, for a while. (Plus it gives more of a chance for o...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Cheers Joe, you are always too kind. Yes, it will be fascinating to hear what response Doron may have to Jean's post. What in particular made me ask whether you thought the song could be coming from God's perspective was that I thought the lines "If I couldn't lift the veil/And see your face" could ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

That's a fine display, Jarkko. Doron, 'one by one', yes. It's marvellous that you are keeping alive the forum tradition of in depth analysis that you started with BoM. I must say, the tidal wave of grief and love in this 'news' section (and, no doubt, elsewhere) is humbling in itself. Jean, I apolog...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Hello all you lovely people. Tons to absorb here, thanks! Your analysis increases my appreciation of the album. I also agree with those who say they don't like to analyse because it spoils the magic. But Leonard Cohen encourages us to rest in contradictions. A comment and a question: I see the song ...

The Layers by Stanley Kunitz

I have walked through many lives, some of them my own, and I am not who I was, though some principle of being abides, from which I struggle not to stray. When I look behind, as I am compelled to look before I can gather strength to proceed on my journey, I see the milestones dwindling toward the hor...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

So knowing and mourning are holding hands once again, time having taken its inevitable toll. Those he leaves behind are orphans now, all of us — and we inherit a rare treasure. Let me bow to both truths, the awful one and the grateful one, and let sadness do what it must. My condolences to his fami...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Of course, words are inadequate, but Leonard Cohen - poetic genius, balladeer to our souls, ladies' man, gentleman, and gentle man - thank You! You know that our love goes with you...

May everyone live,
And may everyone die,
Hello, my love,
And my love, Goodbye.

Dear Leonard Cohen, belated greetings for your 82nd.

I just heard the title track of your new album. Speechless.

How come it's your birthday, and we get all the gifts?

Re: Hattie's releases

Thanks for the info, Jarkko. Having seen online her live performance of the title track of To The Bone, I realised she is very much an artist of note in her own right, and not merely riding on LC's coat tails.
