Re: A CD of Spoken Poetry?

Agree with that. Can we not all put our word forward for poetry reading. Only Leonard himself can read them as they should be read.

Re: A Thousand Kisses Deep - Recital

Hi I'm new here and so have no idea which forum this should go in! Does anyone know of, or have a decent quality recording of the spoken word A Thousand Kisses Deep he's been performing recently?

Our present is to keep these songs alive all these years.

It's nothing in comparison with what he has given us, maybe, but it's every writer's dream.
You could not have said it better. I agree.

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: New York, May 16 and 17

This message is a bit behind time but only just noticed it. I booked a holiday in NewYork last May. The Gods above must have known because I JUST HAPPENED to be there when Leonard was on at Radio City. I could not believe what I was seeing. Got tickets before leaving UK and ,yes, it had to be the hi...

Yesterday's Tomorrow

Started to re-read Yesterday's Tomorrow, marc Hendrickx, and got to the page that says
