Re: never-ending gallery

Lisa, I am a bit out of my element here, but followed everything you wrote, and my eyes never glazed over. There is a possibility (which Plato acknowledged or at least implied) that nobody will ever obtain knowledge of the forms (in one's corporeal lifetime, anyway), but by maintaining a healthy ske...

Re: never-ending gallery

Yes, Lisa cogently reported on a book that only few would dare to pick up, and far fewer would be able to comprehend, and her result was readily readable. For me that would have been a time-consuming exercise; Lisa, please assuage my writer's ego and tell me it took a bit of effort to compose your p...

Re: reading of 'stranger song'

Because the song can never become outdated, neither can fans' thoughts and interpretations. Maybe some/many men seek the shelter of a relationship/marriage, but when they find it they feel tied down and gamble on finding a different/better manger. LC seems to admitted to such behavior himself. I lik...

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

Re the new album, I see there was a Rolling Stone story from last September about the new album that I had totally forgotten about, which sheds some light on the direction of the album via these quotes from Adam: "...I believe that there are some really beautiful songs of Leonard Cohen that no one's...

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

Jean, You present a viewpoint (concerning the new album) that I had not at all considered, that it might focus more on the music than lyrics. I do recall comments made shortly before or after LC's death (I think by Patrick Leonard) indicating that work was going on to create music-only versions of s...

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

September 2018: "A new album of original Leonard Cohen songs is in the works, says son Adam.....A new album, he says, can be expected next year." The more I think about what this new album might be like, the more uncertain I become. It initially seemed logical that the album would continue the progr...

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

If you recall, way back I mentioned a group from the Netherlands, Ricky and Slinger," and how they created "rock" versions of three songs from SOLAH. The three songs were Famous Blue Raincoat, Last Year's Man, and Love Calls You by Your Name. I generally dislike covers of Leonard's songs, but found ...

Re: never-ending gallery

Hi Geoffrey, I consult this thread occasionally for the same reasons as Lisa, to see any new artwork and to read any banter, you have a gift for both. As per your wishes I will not praise you for having these gifts, but I do thank you for sharing them. Did not expect to see your abbreviated autobiog...

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

Thanks for all the information from you archives, Bev! In the electronic age it is easy for anyone to have extensive electronic archives on any subject, the difficult part--which you have mastered--is recalling the various bits and parts in your head and remembering how to access them! I listened to...

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

Perhaps it is time that we consider speculating about the new album that is supposed to be coming out in November (Vickie's post elsewhere on the forum just reminded me of that welcome event). Also, it might be interesting to discuss what unreleased material might exist from past recording sessions ...

Re: Review of Jewish Museum Show A Crack in Everything

So here we have two options for determining whether to visit the exhibit in New York: (A) Rely on thoughtful posts by folks who viewed the exhibit in Montreal not as a work assignment, but to revisit and reconnect with someone who touched their lives. (B) Rely on a professional reviewer from the sam...

Re: Stories of the street

It was good of you to post this, as it made me listen to "Stories" for the first time in quite awhile; and a second time; and a third time! I had forgotten how much I like this song, how beautiful the guitar and lyrics are. As to your specific question I do not know if I can be much help. Although q...

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

Bev, There is a new post in the Comments section titled "Lyrics or Music First?" It struck me that, with your knowledge and vast archives, you could shed some light on this interesting question. I know some poems were put to music on his earlier albums, but I am not sure which came first for the maj...
