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

Great to see that this thread has exceeded 700 hits! The CD is now imminent, and will hopefully be ready later this week. Here's one of my favourite tracks, and one that should have particular appeal to Leonard devotees:

"Who Will Guard the Dog?":

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). Meanwhile, here's "The Vampire Waltz:

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.

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

This album is one of the best things you will ever hear. For fullest appreciation. I would urge everyone to listen to the album in sequence, as intended (rather than too many random tracks). Side two in particular is a revelation.

Re: March 2019 Uncut Magazine

I bought this today at Euston Station. It's well worth-buying, as there are thirteen pages of Leonard inside. The article features quotes by major people connected to Leonard regarding ten of his studio albums plus "Songs From the Road" (no "Songs from a Room", "Death of a Ladies Man" or "Popular Pr...

Re: Kiki Dee "Dance Me to the End of Love"

Thanks for the comments everyone! I've always loved Kiki's version of "Amoreuse", as well as the French version by Veronique Sanson, who wrote it. Here's an earlier live version of "Dance Me to the End of Love" by Kiki and Carmelo (wrongly listed as "Dance Me to the end of Time"). They've developed ...

It includes thirteen songs; nine of which were written by Julie. Miraculously, the album contains some of Julie's ...

Brian - I've just tested it, and it works for me. If you have a problem accessing it here, you could go direct to youtube. I'm interested to know if it works for others.
