A Prague expat review of "Death of a Ladies' Man"

A quickie today: peep Joey Bishop’s extensive look at Canadian poet supreme Leonard Cohen’s Death of a Ladies’ Man. I’m ashamed to admit that I’ve only got a cassette of his early hits and The Future. I listen to the former often enough; the last time I listened to the latter was probably about a year before I moved to the Czech Republic. I am very glad to have seen Leonard Cohen perform at the Ottawa Congress Centre on The Future tour. Dude was cool as you would expect him to be, every word that rolled off his tongue seemed like a wine-dipped pearl.

And after reading Joey’s review, I’ve got to get me that CD. Beaucoup props for writing such a crackling review, JB.

  1. A wine-dipped pearl. Nice.

    I’m so jealous that you’ve seen him live, though I hear rumours of an upcoming world tour.

    Thanks so much for the props as well. I’m looking forward to your own thoughts on Death of a Ladies’ Man.

  2. I hate to rub it in, but that LC show was one of the best live music performances I’ve ever been to. Almost as good as seeing the Tragically Hip on their Road Apples tour, on par with Sarah McLachlan on her Fumbling Towards Ecstasy tour, both in the same venue. For all its ennuie, at least Ottawa’s got a good congress centre.

    I’d definitely try and catch LC again, even just to listen to him speak about anything. Hell, I’d pay to watch him read a lunch menu!
