Try Hi Res versions of Leonard's Albums

If you really enjoy his music and in particular his cd's you should consider downloading the Hi Res versions that are available at this site: http://www.hdtracks.com/music/artist/view/id/6853/ I am no way connected with this site but "Old Ideas", "Popular Problems", "Can't F...

Re: How good is Live in London?

I concur with you Judas Priest except to add my bit: This relates to only Live DVD's and Blueray's. Live in London, DVD only has the best cross section of Cohen songs and was done with what I think was his best live band. I would love for this to be remastered and released in Blueray with highres so...

Re: New album, new concert?

A new album that would be good, but I don't think we will see another big tour as he has done in the past. In fact his last was somewhat disappointing with Dino Solo and Bob Metzger missing from the line up. The replacements didn't do it for me. The last tour was a strain somewhat for him, just too ...

Re: Australia/New Zealand tour 2013 - setlists

I'm in Auckland awaiting this concert with great anticipation. Saw him in 2010. In looking at these set lists, I'm somewhat surprised that only four tracks from the "Old Ideas" album are in fact being played live across the Australian concerts and not all in any one. I'm not complaining bu...

Re: Live in London blu-ray, please!!!

I absolutely concur with you they must put "Live in London" into Blue ray for the SOUND alone. If the picture is 4.3 well so be it. "Songs from the Road" Blueray is excellent both picture and sound. I'm confused though as these performances were recorded on the same tour as "...

Re: Some People (Leonard Cohen Fans) Still Buy CDs, Even Onl

I bought the CD, only after downloading for free, a better sounding Flac version 16/44 of the CD from some random web site. We wanted to read the notes mainly and I thought it may sound better than the download. Surprise surprise! If they ever decide to offer it in 24/96 or 192 high res download I'm...

Re: Old Ideas Vinyl w/cd ...

Bring on a high res download 24/96 or 192 Mastertape quality I say, which should blow both the CD and vinyl away!!!!!!!

Both old formats have problems at the least mechanical playback issues and limited frequency range.

Re: "LIVE IN LONDON" Blueray release

I don't see why not, a tour is already being organised and filming it should be mandatory he's not going to last for ever. I'm not sure whether he will make it round the world like his recent sojourn but I sure hope to catch him again if not New Zealand, Australia. His near perfect concert in New Ze...

Download Flac versus CD music quality

I downloaded Leonard Cohen's Old Ideas in flac from a random site no money changed hands. Converted to Wave playback before CD release. I then bought the Australian made Sony CD ripped to Wave and proceeded to compare with download version. Well what do you know, the download sounds better. The CD i...

Re: "LIVE IN LONDON" Blueray release

" best of the tour" on blueray sounds wonderful....... Do you mean "Songs From The Road" which by my account is the only recent release on Blueray of recent performances. As far as I'm concerned "Live in London" needs to be remastered into Blueray for the better sound ...

Re: How Would You Rate Old Ideas?

9 out of 10. I'm only comparing to live concert and Live in London DVD. I think its a superb effort albeit with shades of earlier work. Quality re streaming via this site is amazing: http://www.npr.org/2012/01/22/145340430/first-listen-leonard-cohen-old-ideas. I mean its got good bass and clean soun...

Re: Online streaming of Old Ideas (NPR, KCRW, etc.)

I'm impressed with the streaming quality but all I want is to buy the highest quality download WAVE file preferably 24/96 or higher. Whether this will happen is another story. I will get the CD though and live in hope of higher things happening. People turning streaming into MP3's is beyond me. Sure...

"LIVE IN LONDON" Blueray release

Gosh where is it I can't find it anywhere? Surely this will happen, "Songs from the Road" Blueray has stunning sound and picture in comparison. I suppose they will have to remaster it, even better and while they are at it turn the picture into 16:9. Ever since his concert I've been unhappy...
