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

Hi Vickie et al , I think you have expressed the eternal conflict as to whether anticipation savored is better or worse than a surprise immediately experienced. Do you prefer looking forward to the party or get a surprise for which you are totally unprepared? If you see the cake, do you want your po...

Re: Scott Walker RIP

I would like to add my name to the list of Scott Walker fans. I have delighted in his voice since The Walker Brothers and through Scott 1 to Scott 4. After I moved to Australia, I lost track of his work as his albums didn't ever seem to make it into my local record stores. He has been a magnificent ...

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

I searched for general cinema release in Australia, and got a hit for November 2019.
No more info than that at this stage.

Re: never-ending gallery

Hi Lisa, I have read the book and loved it. Much easier to "grasp" as a script that I had expected. And then ... the wonderful Postscript discussing the various sources that Frayn drew on to create this masterpiece. Thank you again for pointing me in its direction. I will read it again soon as I mus...

Re: never-ending gallery

Thank you again, Lisa. I have found the book on Amazon, but can I just check with you that it is written in novel form, rather than in script form. In my view scripts are meant to be performed by someone else for me to see and hear. I take your point about matinee and matin. I thought the same after...

As per your wishes I will not praise you for having these gifts, but I do thank you for sharing them. ... for the same reasons as Lisa , 4 and I pre...

Re: Hydra 2019: Daily Program

We have got as far as Athens. Pleased to report that Emirates Airlines has a Leonard playlist. Coincidentally I was listening to Alexandra Leaving as our plane flew over Alexandria. Sadly 10/10 ths cloud cover meant that I didn’t see the city. Heading to Hydra on Thursday. First time, so looking for...

I'm not sure if this is the correct place, but ...
HAPPY BIRTHDAY, Bev.

Karin and I hope you have a great day and we are disappointed not to be able to catch up on Hydra.

Thinking of you today and next week.

Re: Leonard recipient of Folk Alliance International Elaine Weissman Lifetime Achievement Award (Legacy)

Sturgess66, Many thanks for this posting and link to the video. I particularly liked the comments: "Lazy critics saw only the darkness ... " "But it was not Cohen's darkness that drew us to his mortal flame, it was his eternal quest to find goodness and beauty within the darkness, shards of hope ami...

Australia Day, 26th January, 2019 was the 10th anniversary of Leonard's first local concert since 1985. In celebration a small group of us gathered to listen, eat, drink, converse and sing along to some of his music. 6 of the attendees had been at the concert at the Leconfield Vineyard outside Macla...

Re: Matters of Vital Interest: A Forty-Year Friendship with Leonard Cohen

I have written three attempts to recommend this book and each has disappeared! Read it! Copy of my Amazon review: This is the story of the two dear friends on their journey through 40 years of life. It reveals the "other" Leonard Cohen without being intrusive, i.e. the man rather than the artist. Re...
