Thanks Tom
You've come through again! I am now listening to KCRW interview and realising I should have joined this forum years ago.

youtube

Thanks again Lightning I have found that youtube is a great source of Leonard Cohen sightings, especially as Australia has been so deprived of visits and he just never appears on our television or radio. I have payed for iTunes downloads to hear interviews he has done recently. ps I also enjoyed the...

Thanks
It was interesting to listen to (what were the visuals about though?) and compare to the poem in Book of Longing. He has changed some of the words and now I am wondering if it makes a good song or a good poem or both and why did he make the changes?

a girl in a paper boat

Hi Lizzy I pirated it from the cover of a book, The Red Tree by a wonderful Australian illustrator Shaun Tan. I love books as well as LC's music and now Tom, through sending me to visit the mixtape rule site, has put me on to another Nick Hornby book I have to read-Songbook. Those of you who enjoyed...

DOALM

DOALM is my favourite Cohen album because I first heard it as a teenager and if I was making a mix fo...

monsieur camembert

Thanks Andrew

Has anyone heard monsieur camembert?

This one is for Australian fans. Has anyone seen them playing live?

essential cohen seems incomplete

Disclaimer: I am new so forgive me if this has already been said. It is a shame that Leonard Cohen, in selecting from his work for this collection, neglected Songs of Love and Hate and ignored Death of a Ladies Man. They are both sentimental favourites of mine, being among the first albums I owned. ...
