Re: Multiple identities

Anyone in mind for those with two, or more identities? : This has often happened in the " Own writing" section - fair enough, creative writing can be creative. (Although even there it's a bit disconcerting to find someone's female persona praising the work of the same person's male persona! :? ) Ha...

Multiple identities

Is it ok on this forum for one person to post under multiple identities, praising one's own post if nobody else does, and jumping to its defence in insulting terms under various posting names if someone dares to question it? (Would not be tolerated on some other forums with which I am familiar.) If ...

Re: Popular Problems - Second Impressions

with this album I've found out that Mr. Leonard is so good travelling companion in your car at the maximum loudness :) I agree, Berislav! Have been so besotted with "Live in Dublin" since its release that I haven't been listening much to "Popular Problems". Have returned to it now, though, especial...

Re: New live album: Can't Forget

I'm happy, anyway - as long as "Night comes on " is included I'm happy!
One or two of the others look promising, one or two less so, but I'm happy to suspend judgment until I hear them. Only fair, I think!

Just delighted to have another new album to look forward to.

Re: New Album: Leonard Cohen - Can't Forget on retail sites

This one seems like a good idea since it appears to include unreleased songs with less-frequent tour songs. Time will tell, John. Sometimes there's a reason for some songs being unreleased or less frequently performed on tour - usually because they don't work ! (With the resources presently availab...

Re: Tweet by the Webb Sisters about new LC music

The new studio album will come when it is ready.
When LC is ready.
And we will welcome it, whenever.

Re: New Album: Leonard Cohen - Can't Forget on retail sites

Let's hope that the official St. Patrick's Day announcement confirms that "Night Comes On " is on this new album. It is, I think, the only serious omission from the other albums. (Of course others may think differently.) I still have my joyful memories of hearing it live in Dublin the night before t...

Re: Sharon Robinson in Europe

Thank you very much for this, ddanyc :D
Hadn't read your post before and it is indeed helpful. The format will probably be similar, and the nerves less!
Sounds like a good blend of LC and SR songs.

Re: Sharon Robinson in Europe

Does anyone have any info about what to expect in a Sharon Robinson concert - who is backing her, ( band, guitarist, or what?) How many LC songs is she likely to perform and how much of her own work? How long is the concert likely to be? Would like to support her, but tickets in Dublin are quite exp...

Re: Bob Dylan: "Why me and not Leonard?"

Having attended a recent Bob Dylan concert I am pleasantly surprised by his latest release - he can actually SING ? :) Much better than he did in Thomond Park, anyway!

Re: Sharon's photo book "On Tour with Leonard Cohen"

To me this collection of slices of life bears silent witness to an exceptional musical journey. Well said, B4real, and now that it looks as if we won't see "Leonard Live" in concert again, this book is even more precious. There is a grace in knowing when to quit, too, leaving us with such good memo...

Re: LEONARD COHEN NET WORTH

Whatever amount he has earned since 2008, I would prefer to see him have it than all those gormless footballers who accumulate a lot more by thumping a ball around a fie...

Re: Sharon's photo book "On Tour with Leonard Cohen"

I think photos can be eloquent, in their own way - "A picture paints a thousand words."

Interesting discussion here: different people, different opinions, as you would expect!

Re: Sharon's photo book "On Tour with Leonard Cohen"

Would love to hear what you yourself (and others here ) think of this book, Cohenadmirer.

Links to this that and the other are ten a penny now, but nothing beats a personal response, I think!

Re: Sharon's photo book "On Tour with Leonard Cohen"

WHAT a lovely surprise - Sharon's book made it here to Ireland well before Christmas after all! :D (Wonder who was responsible for messing about with the delivery date so often? If I were Sharon I'd find out - didn't do her any favours.) Like everything about Sharon Robinson this book is excellent. ...
