Re: New Album: Leonard Cohen - Can't Forget on retail sites

Seems like somebody on DrH Guy's new website may be onto something with what will be on the new tour album. Seems the album may be made up of soundchecked songs never played live at a concert during any of the tours. This is copied from his website, NOTE THE REPLY TO SAM'S POST FROM DrH Guy who said...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

I have a an actual stereo. Big JBL speakers and 100 watt per channel receiver and a high end cd player. Possibly peoples opinions of the sound are different depending on how they are listening? My system is much more revealing than an ipod or smaller music system would be. That's true. I can't stan...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

I just played Dublin and Live In London at the same time switching back and forth between the two. London sounds more dynamic. Dublin sounds as though the high end has been cut off. That's what I was getting too, but to me it sounded better as the volume was raised to a highier setting. I will try ...

Re: Live in Dublin Sound

So I picked up my copy of the album on Friday, after a delay due to the local shop ordering the DVD version instead of the Blu Ray I had requested. Anyway, having read all the comments on the sound quality of the album I was a bit worried about what I was going to hear. I popped the CDs into my car ...

Re: Extra Bonus Track on Australia Issued Live in Dublin?

Thanks Jarkko and Alan for looking into it. I was thinking it was a mistake since everything else said the bonus tracks were all from in Canada in 2013 and that one was from Ghent in 2012. But I decided to check it against the setlist from the show it supposedly was taken from anyway and low and beh...

Extra Bonus Track on Australia Issued Live in Dublin?

Just wondering if any of our friends from down under can confirm the extra bonus track "Crazy to Love You" on the Live in Dublin album/dvd set that is not listed on the USA release? I spotted it tonight on a listing for the album for sale on an Australia website. It said bonus tracks are from Canada...

Re: Rosewater

I saw the film this afternoon, LC was featured in it in several spots. In the begining when the guy from the Iranian government is going through the main character's personal belongings he pulls out a vinyl copy of "I'm Your Man" and asks about it. That then is followed by a flashback of him as a ki...

Re: Leonard in a 1964 Symposium!

Don't forget to listen to part 2 of the symposium! 45 minutes of questions from the audience to the group with a good deal of it directed in LC's direction.

Re: Cohen returning to Sligo 2015

I would like him to take care of himself, enjoy life and quietly do another CD. He has loved enough. But I am not his mother. Well he has talked enough about how he finds live performance in various ways nourishing and has a love of ireland and lissadel in particular so in sense returning to the st...

Re: THE CLEANEST SHOES IN THE WORLD

I personally think his ritual of polishing his shoes before every concert stems from his mindset that touring in a band is much like being a soldier in an army. I come from a family of soldiers and the one thing a remember about my uncles and from what I saw in photos of my grandfather was that thei...

Re: "Popular Problems" - the next LC album (late September 2

Only 9 songs? Various Positions only has 9 songs. I'm Your Man has 8. I often forget that, so Popular Problems is in good company. Both of those albums are in my top 5 favorite LC albums along with Songs of Love and Hate which has 8 songs. While not in my top 5, The Future is another good one which...

Hello Jarkko and all who are involved in the project, I just sent a paypal for the birthday bench project. Sorry I didn't get involved sooner. I have been super busy this summer, so, I haven't been online much and only just learned of the project tonight. I also just learned about the new album and ...
