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

Thank you to Judas Priest, for sharing Jim Sullivan's review of: "THANKS FOR THE DANCE". Of course, every person is entitled to his or her review. To each their own. I, for one, could never be disappointed with anything related to LEONARD COHEN. His books of poetry....or his songs....or his record a...

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

"Don't it always seem to go, that you don't know what you've got 'til it's gone?" - Joni Mitchell This is in response to a private e-mail sent to me by "Jill" (Boston, Mass) who asked me about another Canadian folksinger...Joni Mitchell. I wrote her a detailed story about what I remember, but for th...

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

Last little "note" (pardon the pun) about our Canadian dynamic folksinging duo..... => IAN & SYLVIA <> In the words of Sylvia Tyson: When Ian wrote "Four Strong Winds" in our manager's apartment, up in New York City, the song had a reference to Alberta, which happens to be a province in Canada. Our ...

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

Joe, you really made my day with your reference to "Irish Cohenites" (hahaha) :D

Best Regards to you and Anne,

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

Thank you very much, Joe. I not only appreciate your feedback, but I never heard Tom Russell's song: "I'll Never Leave These Old Horses" before. Loved it !!! And the fact this song has to do with Ian Tyson, makes it even more awesome. Speaking of Ian Tyson, when he wrote "Four Strong Winds" in Alber...

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

Final note about "Bell Centre"..... and an additional note about.... "HORSES" A friend of mine who works at the Bell Centre, invited me to her farm up in Saint Agathe, Quebec. It's located about 30 miles north of Montreal. Three things we have in common and love dearly : 1 - Leonard Cohen 2 - The Mo...

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

Speaking of the "Bell Centre" in Montreal: Waaaaay back in the early 1960's, there was a Canadian folksinging duo known as "Ian & Sylvia". You might have heard some of their songs: 1 - Four Strong Winds 2 - You Were On My Mind 3 - Someday Soon Sylvia Tyson happened to be a guest at the Bell Centre r...

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

Thank You, LisaLCFan. For the record (pardon the pun), I marked on my calendar: November 22nd 2019, the release date of Leonard Cohen's new album: "Thanks For The Dance". Lately, I picked up my guitar and have been singing the final verse to that song to many of my colleagues and friends. I've been ...

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

As far as I'm concerned, any new album by Montreal's legendary beloved poet & songwriter, Leonard Cohen, is a welcome gift. This "new" recording can include spoken words or songs, or even Leonard's "goodbye" letter to Marianne Ihlen, written in August 2016 (just before she died)....I very much am lo...

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

AND...AND...AND.... About a dozen years ago...for ol' times sake: A song Leonard Cohen and I sang at Montreal's "Beauty's" Restaurant counter, while enjoying freshly brewed coffee with a bagel + lox sandwich, served by (owner) Hymie. Leonard Cohen wanted to treat me but I insisted on paying for both...

Re: Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

You're welcome, Leslie.

Whenever I get down on our fair city of Montreal and need a lift....
I'll visit YouTube and watch everybody at Bell Centre singing "Hallelujah" !!!

Music has always found a way to bring people together....
and most notably...Leonard Cohen :D

Best Regards,

Bell Centre sings "Hallelujah"

I apologize for reporting this late, but you know how it is.... life gets in the way. And sometimes watching a good (or bad) hockey game is another way of escaping !!! Everybody at Bell Centre was singing Leonard Cohen's "Hallelujah" :D https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4R2Cx-fpxpI Note: this was part...
