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

Hi Vicky, Glad you have seen the light about listening in the dark! Sometimes I listen to all the albums in chronological order, but lately I have been listening to just the 3 most recent CDs on repeat. My subconscious and I were more familiar with the earlier albums and of course all those "older" ...

Re: Perla Batalla performs "Hallelujah" in The House of Cohen

Thank you Marie, thank you, Perla.
An excellent version of this song. I have the feeling that Leonard would have loved the string arrangement.

Re: Next Step: Charity projects

I can see this turning into an endless discussion as there will be many viewpoints. To keep things simple, I propose that Jarkko determines what reserve is needed for maintenance and thus identifies the surplus available for other purposes. Then Jarkko asks Adam and Lorca to decide what to use that...

I have just received my new headphones, and they are amazing! Hi Vickie, I've been following your adventure closely. Try listening in the dark. Other than being at a concert, I feel this is the best way to listen to Leonard. Let your mind wander wherever it will, don't concentrate too much on the l...

Many thanks for The Traitor link - I love it.

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

btw....I reckon the Recent Songs album is for sure one of LC’s finest and that song (a personal favourite) is a major contributing factor to it! I agree, Bev. If I could only take one LC album to my desert island it would be that one. Sadly the only song to appear on the extended tour(s) on any reg...

Re: My Leonard Cohen - Australia

Just home after seeing Stewart D'Arrietta's " My Leonard Cohen ". with the volume perfectly set for the size of the room Regarding the review above, I would disagree with this line. He needed Leonard's sound engineers. The band's musicianship was very good, with stand-outs being the guitarist and St...

Re: Lonnie Donegan

That takes me back many a year!
I can strongly recommend "The Skiffle Sessions" - Van Morrison, Lonnie Donegan and Chris Barber - live in Belfast.
It sounds like a great night, with little rehearsal.
