Leonard Cohen - Thanks For The Dance

There's a posthumous album of new songs coming! Look here.

Thanks For The Dance was on the Anjani album Blue Alert. Music by her, lyrics by Lenny IIRC. I'm guessing that Mr Cohen re-recorded it with his own vocals this time.

Excellent - late life Cohen was a real high point.

I never liked Cohen. I was into Hendrix, Cream etc. But I heard his “Darker” CD and downloaded it. I liked it so much I downloaded his second last recoding. I think it was better. But the rest I think are ordinary. Just me.

 

But I did buy is double LP on 180gm vinyl “Songs of the road” and love it, all bar a track or so. Unfortunately they used compression on his voice for the live recording which adds an etched type distortion. If you can listen past that it’s a good double LP set.

same here, but, my other half is a fan, so we went and saw him in concert, one of the most enjoyable concerts i have been to, his voice was superb and the backing band was HOT, bought his last album, gets a regular play, vale Leonard

If you like the last the second last will grow on you. None of the others though.

Can't say that I was his biggest fan, but there were some stunning songs from him, still can't believe the genius of Hallelujah and Famous Blue Raincoat.

Must admit this latest album is for me in places a little to dark, but no doubt it will grow on me with time.

 

Hallelujah is great but Mr Cohen has many masterpieces that can be attributed to him that I like to listen to just as much.

 

cheers,

Terry
