Re: Next Step: Charity projects

I am a little bit shocked that so little of the money has been spent on the main project. Given 2/3 of the funds raised for a permanent tribute to Leonard are unused, is there scope for another memorial of some sort elsewhere as well as the charity projects? Montreal has been mentioned and I am cons...

Re: Can anyone recommend a dealer for a signed LC photo?

So maybe the photos might have come from people like us who never sought out Leonard but were very fortunate to have met him. Mind you, the chance of anyone getting the photos and autographs off Vicomtesse are slim to no chance at best. I think you answered your own suggestion there Vicomte. Also, ...

Re: Can anyone recommend a dealer for a signed LC photo?

I refuse point blank to buy these items. I saw these people crowding around Leonard when he arrived back at his hotel exhausted after a long show. Maybe a dozen of them at a time, barely letting him get out of the car or van. They would present him with a pile of things to sign and of course, Leonar...

Re: New set of 7 LC-postcards

Thanks for the interesting replies and suggestions Hugo and Maarten. I think you could be right Maarten, especially as you have the 7 and six card sets to compare.

Re: New set of 7 LC-postcards

I bought a set from eBay too. However, I was not convinced they were the real thing. Firstly there are only 6 cards instead of 7 and secondly, the quality of the cutting is very poor (or maybe amateurish) with bits of other images around the edges of the cards. They didn't cost much and I'm not too ...

Halifax NS - 13 May 2008

For those who follow these things, Raincoat1 has just uploaded a recording of this show to Dime. Whilst a few tracks from the opening concert of the 2008 tour in Fredericton were made available on a Record Store Day special vinyl in 2012, I believe this is the earliest complete recording to emerge f...

Re: Hattie Webb Album Launch Show in London, 19th May

I am hoping to be there though the train fare makes it a pretty expensive outing. Anyone else who, like me, lives a long way from London might like to note that Hattie's concert runs from 19:00 to 20:30, making it feasible to catch a train home after the show and avoid the cost of overnight accommod...

Re: Nadine (NEeMA) tours in Europe

If you possibly can, please come and support her at Pizza Express in Dean Street, Soho this Saturday at 1.00 pm (12 hours away at the time of writing). I was originally only planning to go to one gig, but after Stoke Newington, I couldn't possibly miss the Soho gig, and hope to see some of you ther...

Re: Nadine (NEeMA) tours in Europe

See you at Pizza Express John! A recent Virgin Trains seat sale made it possible for me though I have to dash back to Birmingham straight after the show.

Re: Nadine (NEeMA) tours in Europe

I just got a phone call from Pizza Express Live. The Birmingham show on April 8 I booked for has been cancelled. Time is tight to do both shows (the reason I decided not to do both myself) and Nadine has chosen to play the lunchtime show in London in preference to the Birmingham show. I'm gutted. We...

Re: Julie Felix - Leonard Tribute London 6th February

It's being billed as a "talk" by Julie Felix. The blurb says: "We will also be inviting the audience to share their reflections of the influence Leonard's music had on their lives and favourite tracks." I looked in to it but decided I couldn't justify the time and the c. £40 it would cost be in trai...

Re: CONCERT REPORT: Auckland, New Zealand – December 21, 2013

We can't thank Raincoat1 enough for his hard work in editing these recordings and making them available (and Raincoat1's partner for sitting through so many Cohen concerts and taping them for us! :-) ) Maarten I think I know what raincoat1 and his partner would say in reply. Something like "it was ...
