Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Thank you, Jarkko as usual for all you do for us! I have resisted listening to the streams as I want to have it all to myself. I am going tomorrow morning to B Side Records in Madison to purchase it. I have purchased every album beginning with "Recent Songs" in 1979 at this venerable record store. I...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Thank you, Marie.

It is a very insightful and well-written article. Like all of us who had the great honor of listening to the album in Amsterdam, I can hardly wait to hear it all again.

Happy Birthday, Jarkko! It was wonderful to spend time with you and Eija in Amsterdam-we loved our time together. Hope you have a terrific first year of retirement from your accounting duties and that the renovations on your house turn out well. Looking forward to seeing you again soon (we hope!). L...

Sharon in Copenhagen

Anne & I just returned from Sharon's concert at the Bremen Teater. We're a little like drowned rats from walking in the sometimes heavy rain. The concert was wonderful. Sharon started off with "In My Secret Life," which was very well received. She did "Caffeine" from her own album and followed it wi...

Re: Thank you, Amsterdam 2016.

I also echo everyone's enthusiastic praise for this wonderful event. Thank you to many people, but of course, Liesbeth, Willy & Wijbe! It makes me very proud to be a Cohen fan to see the warm, heartfelt embrace of so many friends, old and new gathering around work of this extraordinary man. I hesita...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Jerry, He recites more than sings most of the lyrics. This was a question that came up in our discussions with Patrick Leonard. Patrick speculates that Leonard is so focused on what he wants to say that he thinks learning the melodies closely would be a distraction. Again, one listening is not enoug...

Re: New Album announced: 'You Want It Darker'

Just a few comments by one of the lucky ones who were privileged to hear the album last night-I really liked it and I'm one of those who generally needs a new LC album to grow on him. I think it is quite different from his last two albums-seems to be more instrumentation. My favorite, and in discuss...

Re: Austin City Limits 1988 bootlegged

Jarkko,
That was my first Leonard Cohen recording. I had a Betamax at the time and had it transferred to a DVD prior to our first meet up on Hydra. It is a great performance-I would highly recommend it to anyone who hasn't heard it.

Re: Sadly, Judith Fitzgerald Has Passed Away

Thank you Marie for posting that obituary and beautiful photo of her. The obituary makes me regret that I wasn't more overtly kind to her and that I tried to keep her at arms length because of her distrusting and agressive tendencies. I grew up in a very kind and nuturing environment and the behavio...
