Re: Waiting For The News To Come

During the countdown everybody had time to think that it must be something they really wanted to get: new songs, recordings from the archives, more video footage, another book of Leonard's texts... I dare to say that several of these wishes will be fulfilled in the years to come, but there will not...

Re: "Thanks for the dance" - the new album

Dear me, where did you dredge that up? There's nothing, absolutely nothing that I agree with in that review. I guess on one level it's a matter of taste and preference (I personally liked 'Free As a Bird', this guy didn't), but he makes such sweeping, bizarre and self-contradictory statements: - Coh...

Re: THE FLAME - Leonard's New Collection of Poetry

Would it be any difference among these editions except cover design? Remember the biography I'm your man, UK version has more photos than US version. I am curious about this as well. Currently there are 2 versions listed on amazon.de: Gebundene Ausgabe: 275 pages Publisher: Canongate Books Ltd.; Ma...

Re: New bootlegs 2016/2017 (so far 9)

‘Upon a smokey evening’ CD - contents as good as you’d expect, but if you compare the tracks it has in common with ‘Field Commander Cohen’ (noticeably slower, and around a semitone lower in pitch) it’s clear that there has been an uncorrected issue with the speeds of the various tape machines used ...

Re: The Complete Columbia Albums Collection

Sorry to resurrect an old thread, but I recently found this set second hand, and I was quite surprised to see that the box that holds the CDs is quite flimsy, thin cardboard. A bit unexpected since this was supposed to have been a limited issue collector's item. I have the Studio Albums set as well ...

Re: Spanish songwriter Joaquin Sabina, adapts (destroys) 'Ol

Even though much of the discussion here has been theoretical (does JS have the right to 'adapt' LC's lyrics, does the Spanish public need translations in order to enjoy the album, etc) I'd like to point to something that few have mentioned so far, ie the quality of these translations.
