Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

Oh, Hi Vickie, I see that you made a new post. No, of course you said nothing wrong! I am glad that you have found Leonard, but we must all go our own ways and follow our hearts and minds, and my way is a quiet and private one, and I could not possibly express everything about Leonard that I admire ...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

...Vickie, this points out the advantage of your approach, "studying" each album before you move on... Since it is my wont to be a voice of dissent, I actually would not have done things the way Vickie did. Leonard changed over the years, as many of us do, and thus, if I wanted to get to know an ar...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

...I would love to hear what everyone's favorite album is among the later ones, beginning with "Various Positions". ... Hi Vickie, It is hard to pick a favourite, but I suppose "I'm Your Man" holds a special place, being the "first" album for me! One of things I most loved about that album was Leon...

Re: Along the way ... Discovering Leonard's Albums. continued...

Hi Vickie, I was actually thinking that Leonard's new musical "style" on Various Positions might be a bit jarring for you -- I have heard that other people also had that reaction at the time, and I know a few people even now who much prefer Leonard's earlier acoustic/folk sound to what came later. M...

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

Hmm, we've not heard from Vickie for a few days. Hope she's okay and just happily lost in Various Positions. I suppose, Vickie, this little break in the action might be a good time to relocate this discussion to the Music section (so as not to continue to clutter this one). Edit: Hi everyone: if you...

...Ha! Lisa, ... we have "known" each other for many years! So quickly do they fly by!... Indeed! ... I feel this thread is drifting off topic, so I won't comment further. ...I think this thread has been that way for a while now :) Maybe they will eventually separate it or maybe not ;-) I know that...

...See here: http://www.leonardcohenforum.com/viewtopic.php?f=9&t=20297 Vickie, Curt, and Lisa you might be interested in that link as well. (Lisa, I can't believe that nearly 8 years have gone by since then!)... I was afraid that somebody might bring that up again! This time around, as our America...

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

...I made a discovery yesterday that is embarrassing for one claiming to be a died-in-the wool fan. ... yesterday I sat down to play Recent Songs, and--get this--I do not have it--which means I never heard it! Now it all makes sense that some of the songs are unfamiliar... Okay, that is too hilario...

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

...As for the mariachi band on "The Lost Canadian", you would think I would love that song since I was born there (Trail, BC) but it isn't a favorite. I love music from Central and South America (our son was born in Peru), so it isn't the mariachi band. I guess it is because I don't speak French, b...

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

...I vaguely recall an interesting video where Leonard was being interviewed in his kitchen and plays (a recording I think) of "The Window" to get the interviewer's impressions. If I find it I will post a link... p.s. I think that is from the documentary film "The Song of Leonard Cohen" by Harry Ra...

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

Hello Vickie (and Lisa), I too have thought, maybe our ongoing dialogue is misplaced in this section of the forum, but of course anyone can feel free to chime in, so what harm is done?... We visited Montreal a couple of years ago and were so taken by the city that we are tentatively planning anothe...

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

... I keep feeling like I am rushing things.... Hi Vickie, You clearly have a different concept of "rushing" than I do! It seems to me that you've set a rather leisurely pace, all things considered! Besides, there are no rules, there is no "wrong" way to go about this journey: whatever you do is "r...

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

...I have been torn between doing the studio albums first and then the live albums or doing them in order like you mentioned. I decided on the studio albums first because I wonder if artists sometimes are coerced into putting out live albums, and I also it would give me another 'mini' journey to go...

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

Hi Vickie, So, you have experienced DOALM (it is easier to write it that way!), and survived! What made me actually enjoy that album was finally listening to it again after I'd been on a serious Cohen-bender, having listened to all of his other albums repeatedly for so long that I was yearning for s...

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

Hello---This is MIchael B. I'm new here but I've been listening to and been enthralled by Leonard Cohen for 48 years. He's always soothed me and gotten me through difficult times. I cherished each new album of his. I have a core of favorite songs but always return to So long Marianne. Have heard it...
