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

Thank you for the insight into Tacoma Trailer! I was just thinking yesterday, as I was listening to it through my earbuds while I was weed wacking, that I would post today and ask if anyone had any info on it. It really is a beautiful song. I listened to it twice in a row myself yesterday. I told my...

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

Well then, no wonder I couldn't get Google to answer me on that. And of course it made me think of the line from Light as a Breeze. "Alpha Journey" would have been the perfect title for this thread topic. What awesome memories you must have of sitting in the front row at those concerts. I loved the ...

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

...Years ago unbeknown to me, my brother was listening to LC’s songs and poetry at the same time as I was. Neither of us was aware the other knew anything about him and it was so lovely to discover that we had this uncommon (at the time) understanding in common!.... This should help, especially the...

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

Ack! I just listened to Waiting again... and totally get what you are saying now. Sorry for not paying better attention with my last post. You said it was obvious but it wasn't to me (I had only heard it twice till now). So it's not only unrequited love but also the fact that so many people let happ...

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

Sorry 4, I was talking about the song Be For Real when I said it wasn't written by him. I could see how you could think that though, because I bolded the song titles that I liked the most, making it look like I was still talking about Waiting. Funny that you would mention the finger and the thumb. T...

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

Thank you for the link with the blessing B4. It was beautiful. I wish I knew more Hebrew, but I only know what I have taught myself, and it is not enough. Excepting my son, I am the only Jewish person I know, so I haven’t had much opportunity to learn. One thing I share with Leonard is a fascination...

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

Thank you B4! I am going to try attaching the book pictures. (judging by the preview, it looks like it works!) This is the one I am starting with, "Prophet of the Heart" by Dormin and Rawlins Resized_20170514_182759.jpeg I really like it so far. It took me a little to get used to the writing style (...

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

... "Take This Waltz." Right now that's the one that seems perfect Hello 4, Not sure if you saw my post about my son not choosing this song. He said that although he knows Leonard Cohen means a lot to me now, he hasn't been with me to listen to his music, so the music that reminds him of me is Dyla...

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

Me again. I received both of the biographies I ordered. Prophet of the Heart by LS Dorman & CL Rawlins and and Various Positions by Ira Nadel. I am starting with the first only because it was published first. However, I love the dust cover of the second. I wanted to attach an image of each but it do...

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

:( So, what do you do when someone you care very much about doesn't care for Leonard Cohen? (Besides feeling shocked and betrayed that is.) It's not my husband. He tolerates the state I am in after discovering Leonard very well. It is our son. He prefers I pick another artist for the Mother/Son Danc...

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

"Take This Waltz." Right now that's the one that seems perfect to me, and it's hard to imagine anything else! Yes! I didn't want to sway anyone with my idea of what would be perfect. I was afraid with the mention of death, it might be too heavy, but the music is so beautiful, and who but us would p...

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

Good morning B4- I have printed the picture of LC on the TN farm and have it on my desk at work. It reminds me not only of him but our little farm too, which is always calming. We don't have horses, we have 3 donkeys. The large one Sam is in my avatar with me and we have 2 mini donks (Buttercup and ...

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

Thank you so much for the cowboy themed post! By coincidence, I happened to be online looking for tickets to our local rodeo (The Lewiston Roundup!) when I was waiting for the page to load and got sidetracked by this forum and saw your 'cowboy' post. I love it!! Yes, I had heard a couple things befo...

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

B4- This is exactly why 4's suggestion to listen to the albums chronologically made so much sense to me. Even though I am so curious to hear that successful final album, I know I haven't earned it yet. But you have! I am so glad that you have listened to it again. Of course you know that is what he ...

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

Wow. The I'm Your Man...at age 53 piece was full of info, even if it 'cut open the blackbird's throat' a bit and was a little intimidating. One of the reasons I haven't really delved into the forum is because it is so intimidating. So much has been said about his music and his writing by people who ...
