Beggars Corner

Post by rerum » Sun Aug 19, 2007 12:15 pm

Gday folks. I am alLong time fan who is returning to the files after a number of years. I had a few live performances (kindly forwarded from Canada and UK, and Henning's CD (which I won at a Toowoomba Australia event). All were stolen from my car, and I'm keen to rebuild a collection. Unfortunately, I have nothing to give you in return at the moment. Any kind soul want to help? I've replaced most of my original commercial recordings, but miss the nuances of the live gigs :(

I'm in love! I have just received my copy of Lian Lunson's movie which was only released in Australia 2 weeks ago. I sit with my eyes closed and just sink into the warmth of Perla's voice, both on Anthem and Bird on the Wire.

Five or so years ago, some kind friends from this site posted to me copies of "Master Poems", "Explorer of the Blue Dimension" and "Last of the Bohemians". As i so poorly atempted to explain in my last post, these along with my whole Choen collection were stolen from my car. I have replaced the commercial discs, but have no way of sourcing the Boots except thru here. Is there any kind soul willing to copy and forward these to me in Australia? Of course, I am prepared to cover all your costs.

Hi rerum,

Can understand how crappy it must be to have your stuff (particularly Cohen material) stolen. I only have commercially available material, but I am (hopefully) due a bootleg live recording some stage soon. I'd be glad to post you a copy when I get one. I'll send you a PM for your postal address when I get the disc.

Hi Davido

Many thanks for the discs which arrived today, especially for the parochial surprise. A real treat. You're a true gentleman, and don't let anyone convince you otherwise!!!

Peace
