New York Review of Books article. Feb. 21, 2013

Did anyone notice that in the third paragraph he misquotes from the song, Hallelujah? The line reads, "considering the fact that the most famous lyrics from that song are "remember when I moved in you, the holy DARK (?) was moving too.." Um, I have heard The Man sing this tune once or twice, and it'...

Re: PRESALE TO NEW YORK NOW!

Thanks, Jarkko, for setting up this pre-sale. It is much appreciated. I get to see LC again, in New York! He is a resplendent master. Still in his prime. Never better.

Re: CONCERTS IN US/CANADA, TICKET & PRESALE INFO

Eureka! That's definitely a mitzvah for you, Jarkko. It's not that often that I go to concerts, since I only see our Leonard.

Re: CONCERTS IN US/CANADA, TICKET & PRESALE INFO

Hello Jarkko,

I believe I am a registered member, have been for many years, but I cannot find the password for ticket sales for Fan Club Members. You say it is in another section, but ....where? I would like to buy tix for MSG and Barclay's definitely today. Please help?

Thanks.

Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

Excuse me if I am a bit off. Is the Bird on a Wire DVD released as yet? I have been out of the country for awhile and I see that Amazon says it's not out yet. thanks, all.

Victory of Experience

Hello, all. There are two Cohen ideas, Biblically-based, which I never quite followed. One is the crack in everything, which is how the light gets in. What does he mean by this crack? The second query is about his comment in an interview done around the time of The Future, in which it ends with, "No...

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

This guy says the whole thing was filmed; I wonder who is right about that. I did not know that CD is not a fan of the third album. Is that so? I see that he never performs Avalanche, which I like. Was it due to criticisms of the album, imperfections? A lot of people I know were turned off b the sec...

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

just deepens the mystery. Why would Murray Lerner go to the festival and blow off the penultimate act? I mean, weren't they there to record? So, record! How do you wind up with all this stuff missing. I just don't get it. It seems less like anything like a film-maker and more like a casual hippie wi...

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

I am still perplexed. Does anyone believe that this is all the DVD footage that was taken, which is what we are told?

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

What can be said about Leonard Cohen that hasn’t been said before? --Never can say enough. Just read a great review from a Nashville paper. How so many artists cannot do Hallelujah, because they can't grasp its pathos and broken exhilaration (sp?). How if beauty is truth, then there cannot be too mu...

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

Still seems inexplicable. They did a pretty good job of not noticing LC for decades. Even Hallelujah was rejected by Columbia and the album itself did not do particularly well in the scheme of things. How is he acceptable now of all times? I think that the tour has a lot to do with it. It got him ou...

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

Yeah, the review is a bit dim-witted. I have read such greater reviews, such as of the concerts. Some are so well-written that they show new aspect of Cohen to me, and I learn a few new words, or rarely used ones for me. But, for a Cohen fan, that single lapse, understated, ruins the entire spirit f...

Re: Isle of Wight release (Oct 20) - all details

Does he whistle into his hands, or does he blow into his hands, which produce the whistle? You know what I find most odd? I just read the liner notes and it says that "The major modern poets-Yeats, Pound, TS Elilot and espcially Garcia Lorca-had fruitlessly attempted using music to bring poetry to t...
