Re: Attaullah Khan - Live at the Old Fort, India

Hi Kush, I have come back to that beautiful painting a few times, simply to marvel at it (and just copied it to my computer). It has a certain luminescence and the folk depicted sure appear to be 'traveling light'. Thinking about Hindu mysticism if it's not too out of place in this thread, I thought...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Some notes on String Reprise/Treaty : I wish there was a treaty we could sign It's over now the water and the wine We were broken then but now we're borderline And I wish there was a treaty, I wish there was a treaty Between your love and mine. Doron, please correct (or add to) anything I am saying ...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Hello Violet - you are welcome! Your emblem is something of a 'signless sign' (after the zen saying, The fool by the signless signpost stands pointing the way ). It's impossible to 'catch up', isn't it. Some weeks I have time to spend online, and others I simply don't, but I do read when I cannot wr...

He includes the video of Stina Dabrowski's 1997 interview with Leonard at Mount Baldy. I had onl...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

You wrote Joe, back on page 3: {So the notion the G-d wants it darker might be something that Leonard considered apart from the “darkness” his fans seek. and, “The chorus, of course, is “Hineni, Hineni” Here I Am, Lord. I’m Ready. This could include the “game” that includes the random sufferings an...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Indeed that looks like an Eliot reference in The Window. The beauty of the music stands somewhat in contrast with the finality of the words. It does! Brilliant. Thanks Doron! A treaty is about static human law, a separate enterprise to divine law (although many would refute that it's separate of cou...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

I wanted to expand on my earlier general observation on Steer Your Way , the final album's 'final song' (It's actually the penultimate of course, but String Reprise/Treaty is mostly instrumental, and repeats earlier lyrics). Regarding the kind of gypsy/jumpy/energetic music that is contrary to the s...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

It's great how the embers of this marvellous thread keep burning, until someone shows up and throws another log on the fire...no need to rush to respond...just pop in when you've something to say, and then we all sit around in silence, watching the tongues of fire spring back to life and curl around...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Hi Violet. I did follow the points you made. Sorry for quoting you out of context, but the words of yours I commandeered fed so well into what I wanted to say! more powerful and immediate interpretations/intonations arise when re-visiting pressing problems in one's life, as opposed to abstract ideas...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Thanks for all the recent contributions to this thread. I hope everyone had/is having a pleasant holiday. Kush, I enjoyed your personal reflections on Darker . The best acoustics in the whole world in a cubicle of metal, plush and glass. Ah, yes, one of the delights of the haven that is the motor ca...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Vicki, your memories of the Amsterdam concert cause me to smile as I imagine your happy surprise when that setlist was suddenly bestowed upon you. And your story reminds me in turn that it was memories of an incredibly moving 2008 concert (that somebody sparked for me elsewhere on the forum) that le...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Vicki, you are being real, rather than scrutinising text. Thank you x. I haven't read I'm Your Man either (but mostly because I have a poor habit of starting books and not finishing them). Noticing how he lived his life, investigating and analysing not primarily other people's works, but his own sel...

Re: The Darker Album and the Songs

Well said, Vicki. He does bypass everything and go straight to the heart. In a sense, we make less of what he created for us, rather than more, when we add our paltry analyses. That said, I think discussing his work is certainly one way of embracing it. Sorry to hear of your great losses. Over the y...
