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

Jean- I could not make out the postcard but I tried. However the village and the surrounding countryside are beautiful. Where is it? Your horses are so calm and so willing to go wherever you want them to go. They must trust you. Thank you for the videos, they were very relaxing to watch. There's som...

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

4- Thank you so much for your thought on The Window! I love that the song is new to you also. Your take on it was truly refreshing. So many interpretations of The Window focus on religion and the intellectual concepts of the symbols and imagery. Yes, I do think that the phrases, symbols, and imagery...

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

Oh happy day! I have just received both the live CD Field Commander Cohen and my Leonard Cohen; The Little Black Songbook. Now, how am I supposed to get anything done around here tomorrow? (My apologies to Amazon for any ill thoughts I voiced regarding our relationship, you know I couldn't go on wit...

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

— two horses, one man, and two halters (no saddle nor bridle nor anything) — That would be something to see! The Window is on the next live album you will be (or already are) listening to! B4- I forgot to comment on this... but I am still waiting for Field Commander Cohen to get here! I try not to ...

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

http://cohencentric.com/2017/08/14/uniquely-enlightening-discussion-leonard-cohens-albums/ Wow, that was a surprise. I forget that others might be reading our posts. I nearly choked on my coffee this morning as it was a little jarring to see us mentioned under the familiar Cohencentric webpage head...

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

My handmade book included the 49 additional songs. I love that you did that! Thank you for the pictures! You are definitely crazy (about Leonard), haha. I have just placed the Little Black Songbook in my cart on Amazon. I like that it has chords for the guitar. I can't say that I play the guitar, b...

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

B4- Thank you for your post on The Window. I am sorry if I missed that this song was one of your top 5 before… but I do remember that you love Recent Songs so I am not surprised. In fact, I was hoping you would comment first and that you would mention the violin. If the music is overwhelmingly haunt...

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

4- Okay, so now I really feel like a hermit! Can I count grocery clerks and the nice guy in flooring at Home Depot? How about the occasional person who delivers a package that won’t fit in our mailbox? You already said face-to-face, so I can’t include any of you or the handful of friends I either wr...

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

Hi 4! Of those I've asked at work, only 2 have heard of him. One was familiar with Hallelujah only, and he is our music teacher :shock: if you can believe that! Our French teacher perked up when I asked her if she knew of Leonard Cohenand and responded that yes, she loved him. When I tried to talk a...

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

Thank you everyone for giving me so much regarding FBR! B4- I thought it was so funny when you said, “If you asked a male friend who is into Leonard…” because not only do I not have many friends (although they are usually male), but not one of them is a fan of Leonard, unless you count my husband, w...

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

Hello again, After reflecting on my earlier post today, I realized that not only did it maybe sound rude regarding my not being interested in what others think his lyrics mean, but it also wasn’t completely true. For one thing, I would be VERY interested in what LC thinks the lyrics mean ;-) , but I...

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

4- What a perfect portrayal of your thoughts on FBR! To be truthful, I am not so much interested in what anyone thinks the lyrics mean exactly, but how do the lyrics make you feel and what kinds of images and memories do they bring to mind, and what about the music? That, I am definitely interested ...

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

Hi B4! Thank you very, very much for your quotes from Leonard regarding the raincoat. I love reading any of his quotes, especially the ones, like these, that make him seem more human. That is one of the things I really like about the current bio I am on (Various Positions, Nadel)-- the author has ch...

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

Thank you B4! This will be an excellent resource for me as I go along. I have ordered getting Cohen Live 1994, Field Commander Cohen Tour, and Live in Dublin from Amazon. I think I will listen to Field Commander Cohen first and not just because it is your favorite, although that is a very good reaso...
