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...

...I am not a coward usually, but I have yet to listen to the 5th album. ... Loved "Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen"! As for the film, I am glad you liked it -- I thought you might! As for your trepidation over Death of a Ladies Man (we've not helped much by instilling terror!), you know, y...

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

...I have a quick question. Can anyone tell me what "4 experimental music videos based on Cohen songs" are on the DVD "Ladies and Gentlemen, Mr. Leonard Cohen"? I am getting it from Netflix, and although I know it is about his poetry and not his music, Netflix describes it as having the 4 music vid...

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

... Maybe you could tell me after which albums to watch the 2 DVDs you mention? Thanks! Vickie Sure, after "Ten New Songs", you'd be good to go for "Live in London" and "Songs from the Road", as nothing from subsequent albums appears on them. For the "Live in Dublin" video (which, of course, you'll...

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

... The only one of these last three songs on SOLAH that he played in the later concerts was FBR... May I please correct you? Leonard played "Joan of Arc" on November 11, 2012, in Portland, Oregon (it was the first time in the 2008-2013 tour that it was played), and I happened to be in the audience...

Re: Just starting out...

Hi! My experiences with Leonard were similar to yours, in that the very first album of his that I heard (in my case, it was "I'm Your Man") was my absolute favourite and it is what got me hooked on his music in the first place, and when I bought more of his albums, at first I was a bit disappointed ...

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

...What I find hardest to believe is that among all of the people in my life that I have shared my love of music and poetry with through the years, not one of them ever urged me to listen to him. To me that is just amazing... Hi new person! I think it is best that you have found Leonard Cohen in yo...

Re: Sartre?

Don't know about the Sartre connection, but why do you want a "free" pdf? For one thing, I am quite sure that this book is under copyright, so a "free" pdf would be illegal. Also, there must be millions of copies of this book out there, a quick search on almost any online bookseller ought to give yo...

Interesting (and rare?) 1966 Photo of Leonard

Hello all, The Winter 2016 edition of the University of Alberta's Alumni magazine included a small story about Leonard's time in Edmonton in 1966, as well as a photo of him from the U of A's archives. I thought that some of you might like to see it, as it is not one of the usual photos one sees. I h...

Re: "Leonard Cohen Albums From Worst To Best"

A great deal of digested food for thought here... No offence to you (as you did not write the review), but I would suggest that it is, in fact, an undigested, regurgitated mess, not worthy of any thought other than dismissal (because, we just wasted more than enough of our time reading it). What a ...

What a marvellous tribute, one that very much reflects my own thoughts of Leonard. Thank you for sharing this.
