Re: New bootlegs 2016/2017 (so far 16)

It's an official release and is listed on the LC Files. Click on "Collectors' Rarities" then look on the left side of the page 7 down from the top for 7" singles from the 80's & 90's and you'll find it there.

Cheers,
Dave

Re: Montreal Leonard Cohen Memorial Commemorative Box Set

Well I certainly was wrong with my guess that the news would be an announcement of a project based around the 1993 tour! I have been reading all the comments on the new box set and am sorry to read there is so much negativity about it. I understand that it is expensive and it is coming out at a time...

Re: NOW THE COUNTDOWN: Waiting For The News To Come

So I have been think about what the news may be and I think it may have to do with The Future 1993 tour. Maybe a new interactive website with interviews, reviews, photos, setlists, concert recordings of the tour? There are a few clues that are pointing me in this direction. The first is of course th...

Re: Waiting For The News To Come

I while I would love any new release of anything, of the things that I know are in the vault I am hoping for either a release of all the demos/early takes from the sessions for the first album or the lost "Songs for Rebecca" album from 1975. The 1st album demos were reportedly already released very ...

Cheap USA Copies of LP of the New Album

Just a heads up for anyone who may want to get a USA Vinyl edition of Thanks for the Dance without spending a lot. I just came across a website (popmarket.com) that has it in their online closeout crate for only $12 and free shipping included in the USA. They also have a couple of LC paperbacks in t...

Re: The third novel

He did write an unpublished first novel "The Ballad of Lepers" in 1958 before "The Favorite Game" and "Beautiful Losers". Maybe that is the 3rd novel you are referring to? The manuscript of it is viewable at The University of Toronto's Leonard Cohen Archive. Some mentions of it can be found in the l...

In an interview with Darrow in 2009 (link below) he explains how Kaleidoscope came to be recruited by Leonard in 1967 to play on the album. He also tells h...

Re: Leonard and Bob Dylan in 1975

Thanks Wendy, much appreciated! I'm ashamed to say I never got around to getting that one :oops: . I know others have said it is a good bio on LC and it has been on my radar for some time now (since it came out around 2012 or 13 I think if memory serves me right). Life being what it is with work and...

Leonard and Bob Dylan in 1975

So I picked up a copy of the new Bob Dylan box set of live concerts recorded during the fall of 1975 on his Rolling Thunder Review Tour and there was some mentions of Leonard I never heard about before. The booklet says Bob invited Leonard to join the tour which he turned down. It also says Leonard ...

Bobby Furgo 2016 Interview About LC Tours and Last Days

I just came across this Nov. 2016 interview with Bobby Furgo who, as most know, was a part of LC's band in 1988 and 1993. I don't remember reading this piece when it was first published and didn't find any mention of it on here either so I figured I'd share a link to it. Some interesting thoughts fr...

No development, no new information to report (I emailed Los Angeles) Thank you Jarkko for taking the time to look into this for us. I feel a little better about my cancelled order now that I know what was posted by the Pledge Music people was probably just a standard "we need more time..." line mea...

Re: Tony Palmer releases 1972 concert footage on DVD

What the !@%&, I had an order in for 2 of these since July and had been asking them monthly on Pledge Music since Sept. if there was any updates on if/when it will be shipped. They never were able to give me an answer except to apologize for the delay and offer me a refund if I wanted it. For 3 mont...

Re: Ann Wilson covers A Thousand Kisses Deep/Video

A copy of the complete song has recently surfaced for free listening on Youtube. Not a bad cover version, very jazz club style of arrangement to it not unlike the 2008-13 tour version of Famous Blue Raincoat. However there is a 1 minute break in the flow of the music at around the 3.30 minute mark w...

It will have an extra CD of unreleased music (2CDs total) in it along with var...
