Re: LC's songs in Australian bushfires benefit concert

Hi Bev, we are praying for fire relief for Aussie's weary people and critters and hope you are safe. Glad you posted about Leonard's gracious fire relief gift ten years ago, I had forgotten about that kind gesture. Looked up Stewart D'Arrietta, his will be an interesting performance to say the least...

Re: New Leonard Cohen biography by Sylvie Simmons

Fred, thank you for taking the time--and I am sure it was considerable--to think through and compose your post I was going to call it a "book review," but of course it is much much more than that. I am going to print it out and carry a copy with me so the next time someone asks me to explain who Leo...

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

A short essay, "The Inadvertent Gifts--Part 1" It is in the early years of the new millennium: I don't listen to music as much as I used to. When I do, occasionally, maybe a couple of times a year, a light goes off, and I remember three old albums that I bought in the 1970s. Most of my albums had be...

Re: Holiday Wishes 2019

Hauskaa joulua, Jarkko and Eija!

It was so nice to finally get to meet you on Hydra in June.

Thank you for all your efforts over the years to help keep Leonard's work alive.

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

Vickie, Re the short Verse 8, if we conjecture that the words are dealing solely with romantic relationships, they take on a bit of a disagreeable tone: "I wanted our love to work, our relationship to last, but it had to be all on my terms." Disagreeable or not, your interpretation carries a lot of ...

Re: not quite the end?

Geoffrey, When I said "I guess this of is all Adam's call," I was actually going to add more, such as "the call of Adam and others that Leonard had a high level of trust in." I suppose I got lazy, and when one is writing and commits laziness, ambiguity thrives. As long as I am in a mea culpa mood, I...

Re: not quite the end?

Geoffrey, I believe I recall reading in Sylvie's book about Cohen's various recording sessions over the years, and that there was unreleased material from at least some of them. We know that is true, as when CD versions of his first three albums were released they included "bonus tracks." Leonard wa...

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

I have refrained from reading comments about the new songs so my impressions would not be influenced. "Happens to the Heart" is the first song on the album, so I guess that is a good starting point for discussion. The music for "Happens to the Heart" is astounding. That, as much as the lyrics, is wh...

Does anyone else hear a delicious dreamy Pink Floyd quality in "The Hills" when the song opens up at "And she will be born to someone like you..." ??
I hear that as well!

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

Fifty-two days ago "Along the Way" attained zero energy. Zero energy like when a smoldering ember in the fireplace fades and fades and then changes from dull orange to gray, no longer able or willing to radiate light. But our work here is not yet completed! I have just listened to some new songs tha...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Thanks, Marie, for finding this. Some clues as to what to expect: Adam said they decided to "use as many (of Leonard's) musical signatures to make people go through a kind of journey of Leonard Cohen's music...the rolling guitars, the background vocals from women...a lot of chord changes." Also, I g...

Re: Posthumous album

I would expect that, over the next couple of years, there will be several "official" releases of songs. Some may be unreleased songs, or versions of old ones, that were recorded by Leonard, but which for various reasons never saw the light of day (think "Storeroom"). There may also be "official" rel...

Re: "Go clear" in Famous Blue Raincoat?

dstegall, the show sounds intriguing, wish I was closer to Atlanta and could see it.

What Cohen songs does your band cover? If available, would love see a video or two.

Good luck on October 24!
