Let your mind wander wherever it will, don't concentrate too much on the lyrics initially, you will absorb them.
Thank you again Alan... Lately I have found out that you are right about not only the dark part, but especially the not concentrating part.

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

Hello again! Still waiting to listen to #14 (thank you 4!) until next week, but I was reading the Prophet of the Heart bio on the way to Glacier today and wanted to share something (yes, I am still having difficulties with finishing this book.... if only I were more intellectual. Argh!). Anyway I re...

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

Jean... I love that- "sown karma seeds into the wind". (Edited to fix my misquote.. sorry, distracted as I said..) And how right you are about the opening of the door. It describes where I am. Just opening it, barely able to look through it, and certainly not going over the threshold yet or even kno...

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

I am writing to apologize and say that I haven't been able to listen to #13 yet. You have all been so patient, and I can only guess that you might be ready for this journey to be over, so I hope you understand. I tried for a bit to listen to it yesterday but only got part way through the first track...

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

I hope you both are right, and there will be more to come... Thank you B4 for your thoughts on You Want it Darker. It is obvious that they did not come easy for you. I will look over the comments on your favorite songs again after I have heard it. Like with so many of his other albums, but for far d...

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

Vickie, I hope the wedding went well and you managed to include some LC songs somewhere on the day and also found a closet Cohen friend from Canada or elsewhere! Nick and me (725x532).jpg Well, I didn't get to dance with him to Leonard Cohen, but we did have our dance, so I posted a picture for you...

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

Thank you for your quick response 4!! I was hoping to hear back soon because we are packing and leaving bright and early for the wedding, and yes that's an excellent idea to add You've Got Me Singing to the music played at the reception. Although I was shot down in using a Leonard song for the mothe...

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

Wow. I can see why both of you (B4 and 4) were ready for me to get to Popular Problems. This album is awesome (!), from the first song to the last! I love it when he starts off with a really strong track and this one did that (Slow). In fact, he book ended this album with a strong final track as wel...

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

Was holding this comment until we got to Popular Problems.... Okay fine... I will listen to Popular Problems now! :D It appears to be time, lol. You and B4 make it sound so good, that now I don't want to wait. Vickie & other compatriots, happy Independence Day, and B4, a belated happy Australia Day...

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

Hi B4! I actually haven't opened Popular Problems yet, but a little background info won't hurt me ;-) . (I will save the video clips until after I listen to the album). I'm am so distracted by the wedding right now, that I might wait until we get back (I am taking it with me though, just in case). I...

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

Hi B4! Thank you for noting the additional lyrics of BOTW. I wish some of them had been included in the studio version, especially the monk one. Like you, I love the era of LC's life that is recorded in the Lasky film and the live performances at that time. He appears in his prime to me. I recognize...

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

B4- I just had to post to say how much I love the film by Rasky. I love watching all the live performances and hearing LC's thoughts and seeing the old photos and just the whole thing is awesome, it is really perfect, and I could watch it all day long for a week. Thank you again so much! And just an...

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

... the delay had me thinking that somehow you were disappointed, which I would never be able to understand. Glad to let you know that was not the case. I can’t imagine LC's concerts were ever a disappointment unlike other artists I have seen. My apologies to any other Dylan fans out there, but as ...

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

Thank you Jarkko!! How nice that our conversation is no longer split up between two threads. It’s great to be able to look back on it all in one fell swoop. I hope I have an opportunity to meet you one day Jarkko, as I am already in your debt. Although I haven’t allowed myself to look through everyt...

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

B4- Thank you for the video links! I loved hearing him recite Days of Kindness and talk about how he hopes the memories are good for the people he thinks about "from his spine". I also loved what he said in the second clip about the end of The Gypsy's Wife. I read somewhere that someone had said he ...
