Episode 32 - Don't Call Me Len... You Little Bollocks

Episode 32 - Don't Call Me Len... You Little Bollocks

Playing tracks by

Leonard Cohen, Laughing Len, High Priest of Pathos, Field Commander Cohen, Sage From Mt Baldy and more.

A tribute to The Master on his 82nd birthday.. with a selection of music from across his 50 year career (!) from the studio, live and some lesser known numbers.

Putting this selection together brought back some fond memories... a transcendental Hallelujah at sunset in Spain as the Benicassim festival shutdown every other stage to let him perform... or a powerful Partisan backlit by La Tricolore in Grenoble... or a madcap day of two cancelled flights, Parisian traffic jams, speed limits being broken and wrong venue arrival in Tours before finally arriving for the encores with my girlfriend and being ushered to sit up the very front on the ground... Or a 24-hour booze-filled trip to Madrid, starting with a jug of wine at breakfast 9am, continuing with a very drunken view of Guernica and ending in missing the flight home because of passing out at the airport gate the morning after the concert. Or sitting not 20 feet from him for two outdoor concerts in Dublin...

Long may he reign.

Mixcloud doesn't allow the same artist more than 3 times hence all the nicknames... which I got from this handy website featuring 322 of them
