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

Bev, would be interested in reading your 2012 post about your father if you could guide me to it.

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

I was thinking about the Montreal Memorial Concert, and wondering when the powers that be will get around to releasing a DVD of the performance (soon I am hoping). This led me to look around on youtube to see if any videos by concertgoers had been posted there, and I found several, but most were rat...

Re, "I know it sounds a little crazy that I would be so excited about hearing one song..."

If I recall, you were at least this excited when you first heard The Stranger Song!

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

Just saw something on the forum that was very interesting, it concerns the "concert" Leonard played at the London mental health facility in 1970. This "concert" was mentioned in Sylvie's book and elsewhere. It is a pdf of the facility's newsletter from years later recounting the event, on pages 6 an...

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

Re "hesitating to stand where you stood in Montreal," I feel (felt) as does B4. The whole Memorial Event, of course, made the fact that Leonard was gone real, but the act of standing at his grave site was just too real for me to consider, I did not want that final finality. (But after looking at the...

Re: Chelsea Hotel room 424

Thanks for sharing that, Wybe. The accompanying audio--any idea what concert that was at?

I was just offering an opinion and did not think it would offend.

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

Just an opinion, but based on all we have heard from and about the man, Leonard does not seem to be the kind of person that would leave a bunch of "do's" and "do-nots" for his family regarding his works. I am thinking that he had no interest in maintaining any "control from the grave," and that he w...

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

I had heard about that business of temporarily making old music temporarily available to extend copyrights, based on what has been said here, that certainly looks like the case in this instance. However,maybe we shouldn't despair. There has been talk since Leonard's death about older material becomi...

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

Vickie asked why "Steer Your Way" is my favorite song on the Darker album. What immediately drew me to "Steer Your Way" was the music, not the lyrics. Actually this has been the case many times in the past with his other songs; Leonard is most known for his carefully-crafted lyrics, but his ability ...

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

Greetings, I had responded to Vickie's last post with comments on "categorizing Leonard's music," but after I thought I posted it, it disappeared. Really no need to try to recreate it, the conclusion, after many words, was that one cannot categorize his music. I stumbled across youtube videos of Leo...

Re: Hello, I'm new to this forum... (introducing yourselves)

Nick, the description and photo are interesting, the "light getting in" at the memorial is sort of like the way that Eratosthenes first measured the circumference of the Earth by using the fact that on only one day of the year the noon sun would shine down a certain well in Sylene, Egypt. There is m...

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

Dear Regulars, I feel badly for ignoring this thread, and you three, for so long, I feel guilty as if I had forgotten a good friend's birthday! We covered a lot of ground in 2017, what with discussing all the albums one-by-one. The fact that that task was completed (and that the Memorial Event had c...

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

Twilight Zone was an iconic US television series whose original run was in 1959-1964. Last night I watched an episode titled "Eye of the Beholder." It involves a disfigured woman who was awaiting the results of a final surgery meant to correct her grotesque disfigurement. Her head is totally covered...

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

Miscellany: Bev, "B6" referred to vitamin B6, which one of the Webb sisters took during the tours to give her stamina. Oz, I had mistakenly thought that calling Australia "Oz" referred to the city in "Wizard of Oz" because Australia always seems (at least to Americans) like a magical place. Kaleidos...
