Re: The Complete Columbia Recordings Of Leonard Cohen

Just got a chance to get back on the forum and saw the news of the two box sets coming out. I see people already made mention of the fact that the first box set "Complete Studio Albums..." will actually be incomplete come this spring when "Old Ideas" is released. After seeing the title of this secon...

Re: Leonard Cohen Talks About First New Album of the Decade

I guess that when LC finishes the album, Sony needs 6 months to prepare and manufacture the release.... I actually live about 15 minutes away from the now closed USA Sony Music/DVD plant in Pitman NJ and have a friend who worked there for several years in the 1990's. I asked him once about how long...

LC's Book of Longing Inspired This Album

Hi All, I just finally got some free time to do some research on the net on our favorite subject. I stumbled onto a website I never found before that has a story about a newer artist called Elizabeth and the Catapult who released an entire album, "The Other Side of Zero", in October 2010 of songs th...

Re: Chelsea Hotel for sale!

Here's another link to a story by the AP which also interviews the person currently living in Leonard's old apartment. He says "people are always knocking on his door asking to come in to see the bedroom". You know who you are! :lol:

Re: Las Vegas Meetups for Dec 10/11

Hi Grannypoe, Just got the time to check out the list and see I've already been added. I'm arriving on Thursday and leaving on Monday. Would certainly be up for any of the post concert meet-ups. I'm not sure about dinners yet since I'm not sure what I'll be doing during the day. I've not been to Veg...

Those using dimeadozen traders' website will know that two of three Gent recording have surfaced - and both include tape recordi...

Re: Songs From The Road - Cinema Screenings

Alert - abrupt ending to the film No Lorca interviews and no closing credits I went to my first screening (of three) last night. There was a nice turnout. The film goes to B/W at end of "Closing Time" then the screen immediately went blank and the house lights came up. We all sat there in silence w...

Re: CONCERT REPORTS: Sligo, July 31 & August 1, 2010

I see from the setlist that tonight L.C. dusted off an old gem and played "A Singer Must Die" for the first time on the tour :D ! One of my favorites. Can anyone confirm if he did it solo or did anyone else play on the song? Anybody have any video/audio they can upload? Any chance they can stop the ...

Re: QUIZ 2010: where is the last concert

Maybe the part of Jarkko's new signature Tvlcottih is a code for the last show of the tour or something to do with it. I'm breaking it down and I'm thinking the Tv could be code for televison, the next part lc would stand for Leonard Cohen, ot could be On The, and the last three letters TIH the name...

Re: L C's Lonesome Heroes DVD

Hi Margaret,
Here's a link to another shop in England that is selling the DVD that has more info and a picture of the cover. Looks like another unauthorized release by someone looking to cash in on LC's recent renaissance.
