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

Too occupied with other activities to contribute much just now, but here's a short anecdote showing that there are a lot of fans even though we may not always notice them. We drove to Kingston, Ontario in 12/2012 to attend the concert there, having booked lodging at a small hotel/large B&B, the Hote...

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

Vickie, When you say LC did not write the lyrics for "Waiting for the Miracle," are you sure? I know this song was co-written with Sharon, but I always thought he wrote the lyrics and she wrote the music. The lyrics really seem like quintessential LC to me, maybe B4 knows the answer (it doesn't appe...

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

Now you two have done it, talking about this DNA testing! Curiosity is getting to me, maybe I will follow through with a test of my own. Another thing to add to my to-do list. Sadly I have been Cohen-free for awhile, just when I started to listen to my "new album," my stereo went on the blink, no ri...

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

Vickie, You should have asked your question about the Mother/Son reception dance before the recent talk about "Take This Waltz." Right now that's the one that seems perfect to me, and it's hard to imagine anything else! Brings back memories of our wedding, we (mostly Joann) arranged the whole affair...

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

In this same section (Leonard Cohen's Music) there is a post that fits in perfectly with Vickie's "studies." Someone named Roy posted a very thoughtful and well-written piece on that album, anyone interested in LC should read "I'm Your Man Reinvented Leonard Cohen at Age 53." It was posted more than...

Re: The Leonard Cohen voice

Your voice does remind me of Leonard's, but before it deepened for the final tours and albums. Smoke cigarettes for 5-10 years, then you'll be there. Actually, your voice, and the song (which I liked a lot) remind me more of some of Mark Knopfler's work. Take this as a complement. Have you any other...

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

B4, thanks for so many video links. Whenever I get the urge, I will come here and sample some. It's great that you got to see LC a number of times in Australia (sorry Vickie, NOT meant to rub it in). Given the distance and logistics, it would have been easy for the band to skip Australia or gone the...

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

A bit of humor on a rainy day. I was always truly amazed that Leonard could remember all the lyrics without using any sort of teleprompter given that (a) he wrote so many songs and poems; (b) there were often additional lyrics/verses that were omitted in the final versions, but which might have stil...

Amazon just delivered a NEW Leonard Cohen album. It's titled Recent Songs, have any of you heard it?

B4, were you at Lucca, or was your comment on the sound check based on seeing the video?

4 to B4,

Thanks for the Austin City link, I had not seen it before. It cost me an unplanned hour of my day, but I am not complaining!

Vickie, here is a 2013 concert soundcheck video you may enjoy:

Maybe going back on tour in his late 70s was not something Leonard had planned on, but he sure seems like he's having a good time.

Vickie, I hope you don't mind, I am sending you a PM, it relates to something I do not want to post here.

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

Ira Nadel wrote a biography in the 1990s, I believe it would have covered Leonard's life and endeavors through the albums you have heard plus I'm Your Man and The Future. It was the first such biography I ever came across, and I still have my copy somewhere. Nadel's book was well researched and writ...

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

I am feeling badly. Sort of like a few weeks after the honeymoon when something minor (I've told you to put the toilet seat down and you ignore this tiny request) leads to a misunderstanding and unmeant harsh words. I am not sure where things went awry on this thread, I hope there are no ill feeling...

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

Happy Friday, Did not get Recent Songs yet, so cannot comment on that. In fact, given my failure to realize I had never heard this album in its entirety, I question whether or not I should be commenting on any albums between the first three and the last three (those I have listened to with rapt atte...
