The hottest spot in this Montreal winter :) But you stand there so nice, in your blizzard of ice.... http://wpmedia.montrealgazette.com/2017/12/1230-city-weather.jpg?quality=55&strip=all http://montrealgazette.com/news/local-news/new-year-same-frigid-weather-as-montreals-extreme-cold-warning-continues

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

Alan, Sounds like you all had a great New Year! Say hello to everyone from me. Yesterday was the hottest day here this summer with a thick smoke haze covering everything! It’s the first time I turned on my air-con this summer but it wouldn’t work! I’m a bit unwell at the moment, maybe from the heat ...

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

Thanks 4, for the B6 info! And you were right the first time - The land of OZ downunder is a magical place ;-) Seeing as we are discussing the first album I thought it wouldn’t go amiss to mention those songs which were in a somewhat different form before they made it on the official album and other...

Re: Today 50 years ago

ah, everyone, I can relate to your words :) In 1967 I had left home far away for the first time to get an education in the world and was living on an island with no cars or many mod cons - lots of oil lamps and candles. A good place to look at the moon ;-) A time of bikinis, beaches and bell-bottom ...

Vickie and Judy,
I’m glad you both enjoyed that :D I found it quite thought provoking!

Re: Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" (more or less)

He and Jennifer once had plans to do a whole album of Piaf songs. - A pity that this never actually happened. I vaguely recall something along those lines. I've never heard your link before and I wonder where it came from? I do remember LC at an interview in 2009 being asked if he regretted not hav...

Re: Leonard singing "O Christmas Tree" (more or less)

Hehe! Good one Hartmut,
I find No Regrets in listening to that rendition ;-)
The "more" is for sure one of Leonard's favourite songs!

Re: Along the way... Discovering Leonard's poetry and novels

Vickie, Thanks for reminding me of LC's poetry books, some which I haven't read in years and you will see evidence of one of those poems (and it's not a rhyming one, ha!) plus a line from a song very soon in a traditional thread ;-) If you haven’t already read it I was thinking you might be interest...
