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

This is probably overkill but here's some previous links to my posts about this song on the forum. I was reminded when Jean mentioned about the photo I posted with my Cowboy Theme post that the info about this song's birth is just above the white horse. And Jean thanks for your insight into LC's rid...

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

It’s lovely to wake up and see everyone’s contributions here. A little trivia below. At one of the 1985 concerts LC starts playing some chords not unlike the start to Famous Blue Raincoat, stops and then says “no, there’s something so humiliating as forgetfulness of the song descends upon me, it’s b...

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

Hartmut, so nice to see your smiling face again! 4 wrote: love the view of the white horse near the end. Is it coincidental that everyone posting here seems to be an animal lover (in the sense of a deeper commitment, not just, oh yeah, I like dogs/cats/horses/donkeys)? Or is this another aspect of t...

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

Vickie, yes it is easy to forget there are many people reading everything we write. In fact, this thread has over 11,800 views so that should tell you we are not alone! But that’s the way it goes on the net and we all do it – mostly look and sometimes reply. I think it was so nice of Allan S to writ...

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

Vickie, Glad you liked my 49 Songs book and I’ve just now realised how appropriate the front photo of it is for this discussion on The Window and guitars because the photo is of him sitting by the window with a guitar! And another coincidence! Some years ago I drew a portrait of Leonard with that sa...

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

Good on you, Phillip! Vickie, I thought I’d add and expand on our last posts. In 2009 I already had The Little Black Songbook with 70 songs in it but I wanted ALL of LC’s official songs at easy reach so I decided to make a book of my own containing all the songs to date then so I could carry the wor...

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

But how about we go a few albums forward and I pick one that has been stuck in my head lately? It is “The Window”. I absolutely love the song. Seems an appropriate choice Vickie, seeing as The Window is on the next live album you will be (or already are) listening to! First up, I know I have said t...

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

4, you have to stop making me laugh so much – I love your dry sense of humour! And hey everybody, there’s something we’ve all overlooked as regards Famous Blue Raincoat! It’s funny how you sometimes can’t see something that is right in front of you! 4’s full forum name is “it’s four(4) in the mornin...

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

4, I hope your head has stopped hurting and the remedy I provided has helped a wee tad and soothed you ;-) And my pleasure to be of assistance, Vickie! Seeing as you're talking about Famous Blue Raincoat I thought I’d give some insight as to what Leonard himself said and thought about this song - I ...
