Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

"Bird On A Wire by Tony Palmer should be compulsory viewing for anyone wishing to make a documentary about a concert tour. Its combination of impeccably filmed concert footage and fly on the wall off stage reporting makes it probably the best movie of its type that I've ever seen. It succeeds in pr...

Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

Too bad this masterpiece of film art has to be referred to as "product." Boycott Sony. I agree with lightning. I think the only explanation for this mess is that Leonard is being badly advised by Robert Kory, who like all lawyer/managers sees only the financial/legal dimension not the artistic big ...

Re: Tony Palmer presents "Bird on a wire"

and, as if by magic, I check my email and there is an email from Sony insisting that i stop selling the dvd "Bird on a wire", and return all unsold dvds to them. If you still want this dvd, I suggest you buy it sooner than later, whether you buy a signed copy or an unsigned copy. I bet the Tony Pal...

Re: Songs that may be forgotten, or many people have never heard

"Shot by Both Sides" is a song written by Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley and performed by the English post punk band Magazine, which appeared on their debut album Real Life in 1978 and was released as a single in the same year. One of the top ten rock songs of all time. (IMO) Shot by Both Sides by M...

Re: "Bird on a wire" (the Tony Palmer film) coming on DVD

Hi sirius, It must have been wonderful to be at those concerts - lucky you. One of the last songs he sang at the Belle Vue concert 38 years ago was that old chestnut "As Time Goes By" I have to ask the question. Do you think that when Leonard sang "As Time Goes By" then that it is the same recorded...

Re: "Bird on a wire" (the Tony Palmer film) coming on DVD

This is such good news! I first saw this film at the cinema back in 1974 at the Manchester Apollo. I was also at the Belle Vue Manchester Concert in March 1972 where I remember them filming the concert and Leonard making comments to the effect that they were filming him for posterity. I also remembe...
