Thank you, B4real. Much appreciated. Regarding the prose: "Only left-handers are in their right mind".....I happen to be left handed !!! But (my lady friend) Julie will tell you I haven't been in my right mind ever since she met me. :lol: (10 years together) https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=S3zdE8bli...

re: LEONARD COHEN + ELVIS PRESLEY CONNECTION Remember I was writing about Leonard Cohen singing The Kingston Trio's song "Tom Dooley" at Beautys Restaurant ?

Re: Is Adam Cohen singing the unreleased songs of his father?

LisaLCFan.... => all is good. Actually, the fact you thought I insulted Ms Lorca Cohen, and you wanted to come to her rescue, speaks volumes. No need to apologize at all, and I truly am sorry for any misunderstanding. Perhaps there is a "Treaty" we could sign. ;-) - Brucester (Montreal, QC, Canada)

Re: Is Adam Cohen singing the unreleased songs of his father?

No disrespect intended. Honest. Just wondering, that's all. I do know that it was Lorca who suspected Leonard Cohen's accountant was stealing money from him. ($5 million?) I have high regard for Ms Lorca Cohen, but I was just curious as to why Adam appears to be in the spotlight (ie: "Tower of Song"...

Leonard Cohen Saves Lives

I remember a cashier at Alex Sherman's Record Store once made a comment that Leonard Cohen albums should include a rope, razor blades, and/or some cyanide poison pills. Obviously he was being sarcastic. :cry: Not cool. Last week, I visited a friend (Susan) at the Jewish General Hospital (Montreal) o...

Re: Leonard on the cover - also contributions requested

Thank You, Jarkko. BTW when Leonard Cohen talked about The Kingston Trio song "Tom Dooley" (who was sentenced to hang) I remember saying to Leonard (at Beautys Restaurant).... "There must've been a knock on Tom Dooley's prison cell an hour before his hanging. The warden asked.... => "Who shall I say...

Re: Is Adam Cohen singing the unreleased songs of his father?

Here's a question for ya.... Okay, so 'Everybody Knows' Adam Cohen produced Leonard's final album: "You Want It Darker" and definitely did one heckuva terrific job !!! Great record. I've got this album on CD as well as the limited edition "white vinyl" LP. It was Leonard's son, Adam, largely respons...

Re: You Want It Darker (LP)

I received an e-mail asking me what Leonard Cohen & I talked about at Beautys Restaurant. Well, Leonard definitely enjoyed his coffee with bagel & lox, that's for sure! (hahaha) But we spoke about many things. One topic fled to his being a counselor at a camp up north in the Montreal Laurentians. (I...

You Want It Darker (LP)

Thank you Adam Cohen for producing one of the best Leonard Cohen albums ever made! Truth be told, this record (LP/white vinyl) has NOT left my record player since December 2016 !!! The only other LP which remained on our turntable was "Songs of Leonard Cohen" waaaaaay back in 1968. Leonard Cohen wil...
