Re: Complete Studio Albums of LC - Box of 11 CDs

Jarkko, I'm only discovering this box set now and I'm Your Man tracks via ITunes. They sound great!!! Big improvement sound wise over the original cd. Sounds much more analogue based, less tinny and fuller. This has made my day... Almost. Take This Waltz is only the "Paris" version. Any idea where I...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Just noticed more people have now viewed this thread than its new album counterpart! Hope Leonard hasn't inadvertently sabotaged You Want It Darker's PR campaign...

A temporary phenomenon I'm sure but Happens in the Heart more than deserves its moment in the limelight.

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

The only problem with serving us up this gem now is that if any of the lyrics from the tracks on You Want it Darker don't measure up to this baby (a tall ask surely) I'll be saying to myself if only Happens to the Heart was on there... Flip side is it's something to dream about one day and worst cas...

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Being a Dylan nut, I've been humming it to the melody of Mississippi - kind of reminds me of that track in ways I can't really explain. There's an emotional resonance to the fluidity of the language although hat's off Leonard, your writing here is even richer.

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Now I'm wishing Happens to the Heart was on it... Beautiful lyrics.

Re: FROM LEONARD: HAPPENS TO THE HEART

Thanks Leonard - this is quite the treat but it has such a lyrical flow that surely it deserves to be put to music and sung on your next album... or in the alternative recited live A Thousand Kisses Deep style!

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

glad to hear- really pumped for this album. Truth is I trust seasoned fans initial impressions over mainstream publications all day long so to hear the die hards gush as enthusiastically as they have has really whetted the appetite.

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Thanks Jarkko, much appreciated. I fully accept your point in general terms too and PP is the proof in the pudding etc... Altho to continue the pedantic arc, slightly longer than PP presumably includes the coda which arguably doesn't count as a new track (I could of course think completely different...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Did anyone who heard it comment yet on the length of the album? PP was a brief affair at 9 tracks (in fact I found the brevity endearing and refreshing but would in no way object to a longer work should the content justify it) and with the new one being 8 plus a mostly instrumental coda, are we in t...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Excellent- I haven't look forward to any album as much since Dylan's Tempest 4 years ago.
