Perla Batalla at the Union Chapel (30th Nov. 2019)

Solo concerts by Leonard's ladies don't usually seem to attract large audiences, and previously, when playing in London, artists such as Anjani Thomas, Sharon Robinson, and the Webb Sisters have tended to play at smaller venues such as Green Note, the Jazz Cafe or Bush Hall. To the contrary, Islingt...

Re: Leonard Cohen on the front cover of the January 2020 issue of MOJO

The January Mojo is already available on bookstalls in London (I bought my copy at Euston station, yesterday); the price is £6.50. Those with a collector mentality, might wish to unpeel the plastic cover carefully, because the picture on the wrap is different to the one on the magazine cover (a stri...

Re: BEST COVER VERSIONS OF A LEONARD COHEN SONG OF ALL TIME

Although she accompanies Leonard on his original version of "Nightingale", Anjani's own version is an extremely rare case of a cover improving on the original. I love both versions, but Anjani's version is heartbreaking and beautiful:

"Hallelujah" by Madeleina Kay (EU Supergirl)

Here's a nice version of "Hallelujah" by Madeleina Kay (though she uses Alexandra Burke's "how to shoot somebody who outdrew you" rather than Leonard's "how to shoot at someone who outdrew you"). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5VCsCDuZyw Madeleina is a political activist; also known as E.U.

Re: Marianne & Leonard: Words of Love, film by Nick Broomfield

I saw the film in Richmond tonight. Overall, I found it to be well-structured and generally engaging. Most pleasing was the footage of Hydra and especially that which featured the young Marianne. I also appreciated the somewhat outspoken contribution by Aviva Cantor (Irving Layton’s one-time partner...

Re: Scott Walker RIP

It's so sad to hear that Scott has died. I first saw him performing with the Walker Brothers in 1966 and saw him singing solo twice in 1968. I have multiple copies of his first four great solo albums. Here's a Scott song from 1969 that has some of the same qualities as Leonard's "Sisters of Mercy": ...

Re: Felicity Buirski New Album: "Committed to the Fire"

I've heard that there's a slight delay with the CD release of Felicity's CD, due to corrections in the art work. Hopefully IT will be available in earlier part of this month (February 2019).

Re: that's that. i'm off

Hi Weilin,

If you enlarge Geoffrey's post, you will see that the article is from Melody Maker, February 4th 1973. I've got the original of this , which was spread across two half pages of MM. It includes a large black and white photo of Leonard's face. He has longish hair, a beard, and a moustache.
