Hi, Marie Jolie!

That's Choices written by Billy Yates and Mike Curtis: http://www.songfacts.com/detail.php?lyrics=4896

Thank you very much Goldin, I was just missing these two ones. Now I can start translating, a new mesmerizing adventure each time :D.

The critics are running out of enthusiastic phrases and adjectives for LC's latest albums, so I certainly cannot compete with what they have to say. What I know is that each song just seems to fit situations that arrive in the lives of friends, and mine. I cherish them all. Yes, friends and situations, too.

ALL of the lyrics are in the booklet. From the first to the last word. You just have to buy the CD ;-)

I have been away from home in the last few days - something to do with grandsons having birthdays in a distant location.
Anyhow, back today and collected my CD even before I collected my dogs from boarding.
I am delighted to report I had difficulty in finding this CD amongst the LARGE number of LC CDs in the local record store. I have never seen so many in one place in an Australian shop.
Looks good!

Alan

We spoke with members of Leonard Cohen's touring crew about the tour soundchecks and the new album, Can't Forget: A Souvenir of the Grand Tour. Please enjoy and share.
with Neil Larson,
Sharon Robinson: "a beautiful remembering of the Tour, and it's very fitting, because that Tour was a huge life experience for all of us involved and for many of the fans as well" :D

Thanks Goldin...
I'm surprised that Sharon couldn't remember whether or not they performed 'Night comes on' in any of the shows

Leonard played Night Comes on at Wembley on Saturday 8 September 2012. Sharon may not remember it, but it was utterly unforgetable for me!

I'm not surprised that much by her uncertainty, really.
There were hundreds of rehearsals, soundchecks and concerts; and Night Comes On was played in front of an audience in just 34 occasions:
once in New Zealand in 2010,
27 times in Europe in 2012,
3 times in North America in 2012,
3 times in Europe in 2013.

I didn't want to buy this on line and I finally made it to the nearest city and JB HI-FI shop to collect my official hard copy of this album and I have to agree totally with Alan about the overwhelming supply of LC's albums also in this not-so-big Australian city as well 8)
And just to reinforce Leonard's presence there the shop assistant was well versed in LC, as was the computer salesman from whom I also bought a new computer!
Top of the range speakers to come! I also asked about the delay in the LP but they didn't know any closer date than they original stated of early November 2015.

Also wanted to say that I absolutely, totally and completely LOVE Alex's violin on this album :D

How funny, B4Real,

I just bought my physical copy today, :D at JB Hi-Fi in Auckland.

Great minds think alike!

hehe! Clementine....they sure do ;-)
And I wonder how closely we were in tune because I bought mine right on 1PM AEST (3PM NZST) and it cost AU$19.99 (NZ$21.43).
I didn't realise that JB were in NZ.

Just in time for my Birthday I received the CD today from my dear "Sister" and all I can say it is unbelievable superb. I love it. All the songs are wonderful, La Manic is sooo very sexy sung by him. "Choices" was actually a tribute to George Jones who had passed away while Leonard was on tour, I think this was very thoughtful of Leonard to include this song. All in all I want to say well done dear Leonard, thank you for the music and looking forward to the next Album. I was so lucky to have met him in Memphis,Tn. And the wonderful conversation we had.
