Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Alan, Sounds like you all had a great New Year! Say hello to everyone from me. Yesterday was the hottest day here this summer with a thick smoke haze covering everything! It’s the first time I turned on my air-con this summer but it wouldn’t work! I’m a bit unwell at the moment, maybe from the heat ...

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's albums

Thanks 4, for the B6 info! And you were right the first time - The land of OZ downunder is a magical place ;-) Seeing as we are discussing the first album I thought it wouldn’t go amiss to mention those songs which were in a somewhat different form before they made it on the official album and other...

Re: Today 50 years ago

ah, everyone, I can relate to your words :) In 1967 I had left home far away for the first time to get an education in the world and was living on an island with no cars or many mod cons - lots of oil lamps and candles. A good place to look at the moon ;-) A time of bikinis, beaches and bell-bottom ...

Vickie and Judy,

Re: Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" (more or less)

He and Jennifer once had plans to do a whole album of Piaf songs. - A pity that this never actually happened. I vaguely recall something along those lines. I've never heard your link before and I wonder where it came from? I do remember LC at an interview in 2009 being asked if he regretted not hav...

Re: Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" (more or less)

Hehe! Good one Hartmut,
I find No Regrets in listening to that rendition ;-)
The "more" is for sure one of Leonard's favourite songs!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Re: Next Step: Charity projects

In Montreal we talked with Cantor Gideon Zelermyer of Shaar Hashomayim, Leonard's family synagogue. He had discussed charity projects with Leonard only some months before his death. "Give your contribution to the hungry", Leonard had said. Our Bench Team decided to follow this guidance. Thank you J...
