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

A few nights ago I had occasion to eat dinner at a small neighborhood bar, one of those very plain establishments where the blue-collar crowd would grab a few beers after work. A jukebox was playing, mostly 1980s-1990s rock. Just as we were finishing up, one of my friends said, "isn't that the guy y...

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

B4, As that last concert was in NZ, I assume you were not in attendance. What was your final concert in 2013, and now, five years later, what memories of that night are still vivid? Since Leonard appeared to be in good health and thoroughly enjoying performing, I felt (perhaps hoped is a better word...

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

Jean, we observe a ritual where, each year at the end of December we watch some of our LC concert DVDs. This is in commemoration of our reintroduction to Leonard, after more than two decades of being MIA, through the serendipitous viewing of "Live in London" on our local PBS station in December 2009...

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

Dear friends on "Along the Way," I wish you all the very best at this special time of the year. Our coming together on this forum has provided me with much enjoyment, I view this as yet another gift bestowed by Leonard. Looking forward to 2019 and the opportunity to meet some of you in Hydra or Prov...

Others will disagree, but I feel Hollywood Walk of Fame is beneath the dignity of the man.

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

Bev and Jean, you're not giving the responses I was hoping for...but it is still early, so I am keeping my fingers crossed. Bev, I read in the poetry section that you have been reticent about reading The Flame. Same here, I paged through it very briefly, but then set it aside, putting off the inevit...

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

Wow indeed! I had the great pleasure of finally meeting Vickie in Montreal in 2017 after 22 months of conversation on this thread, but I never thought there was much chance I would ever meet the other regular contributors that made this place so enjoyable for so long. That will change in June when I...

They should be embarrassed for waiting this long and having to induct him posthumously.

Re: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works"

Finally our patience may be rewarded!

Am hoping that Adam has asked Patrick Leonard to become involved in this project (or more greedily, these projects), Patrick Leonard apparently contributed quite a bit to the great music on LC's final three albums.

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

Vickie,

I met an LC fan in a used book store in Missoula, Montana about a week ago. Not Idaho, but just across the border. Was hoping to pick up one of his poetry books, but unfortunately none were in inventory at the time.

Re: allow me to litter this forum one last time

Geoffrey, that is, I would say, the opposite of litter. I love it to the point that I want it all my own. If interested in selling, please send me a PM.

In any case, please do not suspend your contributions here.

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

It has been years since I read Beautiful Losers, the scene I remember most vividly is the one with the spilled wine. There are others, but they are lost in the fog of passing time. Maybe a quick re-read is in order. While nothing, absolutely nothing, about sex can shock us these days, not so when Be...

Re: Tower of Song Tribute on USA TV/DVD Release

Thanks for the heads-up bigdee, will watch on PBS Channel 39 later today. Since I am not sure about which version the DVD being offered is, will probably wait to buy the longer version when it is eventually released.

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

Hi Bev, Thanks for the Adelaide links, I found time to look at everything there. It sure must have been an exciting time, not just the concert of course, but the experience of interacting with old and new Cohen fans. Sad that all of those days are past, but I always remind myself how lucky Joann and...

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

Bev, A belated happy birthday from NA! Now that you've just reheard the final Australian concert, you might be in a mood to go through your memories of the event and recount them to us here. Given your thoughtful and perceptive nature, I for one would find it to be very interesting reading. I am cou...
