Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I like how he sings 'fart by fart' in 'Steer Your Way'' What a mischievous suggestion :D Can't help hearing this now that you've mentioned it. He certainly has a shorter vowel sound for "thought" than we in Ireland would have, here it is more like "thawt". Somehow I think the author of "Beautiful L...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

just listening over and over again; it’s one helluva record. Yes ! Well said. Loving getting to know this album. More than most it lends itself to listening to in its entirety, with the final string section a lovely coda. "On the level" and "Travelling light" were immediately attractive to me, but ...

Re: Concerts 2017

Anyone who thinks there will be LC concerts in 2017 must be living on another planet, or has not been paying attention to the Forum. Go out and buy "You want it darker" released today as I have just done. We will have no more LC concerts, but we have this and all his other recordings! How lucky we a...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

The 21st has been in my diary as a special LC day for some time , so may as well keep it that way. I'm with you on that, Cohenadmirer. Could stream, but looking forward to getting that cd into my hands on Friday, lighting the fire, (yes, a real fire! ) and listening to LC 's latest/ last? on a prop...

Re: Cost of "You want it darker" on Amazon.co.uk

Interesting to see how much the price varies. But do you know what? I don't care how much it costs. I will buy it anyway, in my local Golden Discs if possible as I have done with previous LC cds, because I appreciate having a local music store. And in view of what we read elsewhere on the Forum abou...

Yes! Exciting to join those of you able to listen to this on Spotify in the early hours of the 21st. Sounds lovely.

Re: Bench updates

Glad to hear that a compromise has been found.
Let's hope all goes well from now on and that no new objectors appear out of the shrubbery.
Hope to see a photo of the completed bench here - eventually!

Re: Results of our 20th Anniversary Logo Competition

In the future we will see how and where we are going to use these new logos, on the website and elsewhere. Any of the top five logos – and several others – would look great on a T shirt, or coffee mug, to name a few ideas! (Don’t worry; I don’t plan to open an internet shop!). Has been fun looking ...

Re: Bench updates

However, it is a complex situation, not least because some of the money has already been spent. Presumably there have been fees to pay and there is also a pile of cut stone and other materials lying around somewhere. A recipient charity would have to be agreed on - or suggested by Leonard. Wendy I ...

Re: Bench updates

I have been hearing about the awful conditions experienced by refugees reaching some of the Greek islands. Suddenly a bench in honour of anyone doesn't seem as important anymore. Perhaps it is time to call a halt to this troubled project, leave the municipal authorities, protesters, lawyers etc. to ...

Re: Ballad of the Absent Mare

Thanks David. I love this underrated LC song. It expresses so well the "panic of loss", whatever the loss is. I know all about the oxen, but I still feel it was inspired mainly by the loss of his beloved at that time, the mare used as metaphor, beautifully so - cowboys and their horses, a whole lost...

We the donors would like to be the first to know what's happening to our money! Had hoped to have photo by now of niece sitting on LC seat in Hydra. Hasn't happened. It's complicated, I know - just keep us up to date, please. (Glad there were no objections to the Kavanagh seat by the banks of the gr...
