Re: Tower of Song Tribute on USA TV/DVD Release

Thanks for the links to the articles about the finical woes of the project. Sorry to hear all this is going on. I did get to watch the full program last night during the rebroadcast. It was a lot shorter than I had hoped. I think the program ran just over 1 hour after you subtract for the times they...

Re: Tower of Song Tribute on USA TV/DVD Release

Hi Wendy, I did not know all that was going on with the project. I never saw any press saying there was losses mounting on the project. Do you happen to have any links to anything posted online explaining the situation? I just did a google search and all I came up with was various old articles datin...

Re: Mysterious Leonard Cohen "1967 studio sessions" album - any information?

If these recordings were released online for a very short period at the end of last year then removed it was probably done by Columbia Records and/or Leonard's Estate to protect their copyright status and not as a taste of what's to come. In Europe unreleased recordings are protected for 50 years (1...

Re: New Merchandise

Jarkko, Any word from Barnes on if they are going to be doing a Valentine's Day sale on the shop this year? I seem to recall getting something like a 15% off discount offer around this time of the year in previous years. I also seem to recall we use to get a lower % discount all the time with a diff...

Re: New recording of the song "Book of longing"

I haven't been able to find the video so I haven't heard the new recording of the song yet but I am wondering if maybe it is an outtake from the "Old Ideas" recording sessions. If you look at the last page of the insert booklet for the album you'll see a hand written song list and running times for ...

Tower of Song CBC2 Online Stream of Concert

Here's a link to the CBC Radio 2 online streaming of last night's concert. Not sure if it will work in the UK but it is working good here in the USA. Wish I could have been there but unfortunately it was not to be. Hope everyone got whatever they were looking for out of the pilgrimage to Montreal :D...

Nashville Public Radio Story on LC in Nashville in 60's & 70's.

I just stumbled across this broadcast and story from Nashville Public Radio about LC's time spent in the cabin in Tennessee in late 60's-early 70's. I didn't see any mention of it here yet so I figured I'd share it. It's only 6 minutes long and contains some audio clips from Ron Cornelius and Sylvie...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

I think I remember that there was an archive of work that wasn't to be released until after Leonard's death but I can't remember any details. Does anyone recall? Thank you to anyone who responds. That would be part of the 140 boxes of stuff he donated to the University of Toronto's Thomas Fisher Ra...

Re: Leonard Has Passed Away

Am I in a minority finding the "Optional final verse" both inappropriate and offensive? My feelings are the same as yours. I am so sick and tired of every single web forum I visit, that have absolutely nothing to do with politics, will always have at least one politically charged posting. I came to...

Re: Back catalog reissues

I know that Columbia was in the process of reissuing Leonard's older albums with bonus material and re-mastering, but this seemed to be put on hold to capitalize on his newer material. Jarkko, or anyone else in the know, do you know if they plan to move forward on this again? If so, any chance we'd...
