Re: Like a Drunk in a Midnight Choir - Record Store Day 2017 vinyl

Hi , does anyone know if this is available to order from record shops in the UK ? My local independent didn't think he could order it , and suggested mail order from the US , which makes me a little anxious given the ' vulnerability ' of 12 inch vinyl discs and the destructive abilities of loaders a...

Re: Best Leonard Cohen Biography?

I totally agree with Holydove - Sylvies biography is undoubtedly the best. The Ira Nadel biography ' Various Positions ' is very well written , but finishes in the second half of the nineties. One of the Jim Devlin books , think it's In Every Style of Passion , is also enjoyable and worth a read if ...

Re: The Dublin live BluRay/DVD/3CD now announced

The wonders of modern technology may help those of us who use iTunes ! Somewhere in iTunes , under the Windows tab I think , is a perfectly decent graphic equaliser. Much like some others here , I find Live in London a bit 'flat'. Go to the equaliser window , tick the box , play with the sliders and...
