The Future ~ Leonard Cohen

The Future ~ Leonard Cohen

some time ago during a frosty Norwegian winter Leonard Cohen mania took me by surprise. "I'm your Man" had just been released and it was an instant hit through the entire Nordic country. Me I didn't get it at all, and tried to understand what the dry appeal of Leonard Cohen music meant to all the shop keepers, artist and oil workers of the North Sea. Well I can't say that I ever found an answer for the Cohn fever that took over Norway that year. It was many years later wile watching the movie "Natural Born Killers" that I began to get infected with the Leonard Cohen sound. "Natural Born Killers" featured a wry apocalyptic dance tune called "The Future" I went out and got a copy of the album of the same name, and that's when my strange relationship and admiration of Mr. Cohen's work began. Noteworthy Track: The Future Waiting For The Miracle

  • Good or bad, I feel that when a new Dlyan record comes out, you buy it. No questions asked.

Green Rocky Road is as close as we’ll ever get to hearing the record Karen Dalton would have made in 1963. Discovered on the same reel-to-reel tapes that yielded the live performances comprising the Cotton Eyed Joe release, were nine home recordings of Dalton left alone, with no one watching, no audience to please. Accompanied solely by her own sturdy banjo picking and 12 string strumming, her deep blue, smoky-throated singing evokes the voices and faces of past lives lived – the broken-backed pioneer, the coalminer black with shadow, the stained fingers of the slave, the prostitute…the dead and forgotten. Karen was perhaps the last true folk singer and that’s the bases of the potent appeal of her enigmatic art and of her commercial failure during her too-brief lifetime.

  • This is a classic. Lay Lady Lay and Girl from the North Country are on this album.

  • In his older age, Dylan really came into his voice. And his songwriting craft is none diminished with time. One of his strongest albums to date, a great album with roosty, bluesy sounds.

Just in case you don't know, I'm into music. So I've got a very hungry ear. Most of the time my ear is satisfied with what ever is the hot new thing at the moment, well this time the hot new thing is a collection from Starbucks featuring a comforting selection of roots music dug up by XM DJ Bob Dylan. Mmmm good! ^_^

This is one of the last films Heath Ledger was in....he's amazing as is this movie...I recommend the movie, but it's not on DVD yet so here's the soundtrack :) Many people have covered Bob Dylan's songs over the years, but few quite like this. On the double-disc soundtrack that accompanies Todd Haynes' extremely confounding biopic of the already plenty confounding folk icon, we get the likes of Sonic Youth, Cat Power, Yo La Tengo, the Hold Steady, and Antony & The Johnsons doing their best Dylan impressions and often failing gloriously. Former Pavement frontman Stephen Malkmus does a particularly fine job oozing his way through "Ballad of a Thin Man," while Wilco's Jeff Tweedy draws the moody beauty out of "Simple Twist of Fate," and Sufjan Stevens lends his typically baroque touch to "Ring Them Bells." Special credit has to go to the Million Dollar Bashers, the unofficial house band that includes Steve Shelley on drums, John Medeski on piano, and Tom Verlaine on guitar, along with other notable musicians. The generous track list and dynamic set of contributors promises that this album will provide plenty of awe long after the film itself has been forgotten. --Aidin Vaziri

This and Bringing It All Back Home must be my two favorites, but you really cannot go wrong if you want classic older Dylan -- the sound is quite different and smoother here than Bringing It All Back Home, but it's wonderful as molasses. i own the original record of this and nothing beats vinyl - you can digitize vinyl and it maintains that vinyl feel and sound to it - much rounder sound .... better.

Probably my second favorite album next to Bringing It All Back Home - a true classic - if you can ever get the original vinyl, it's worth it (try eBay) for the liner notes and inside cover which are different but only if you're a die-hard Dylan person... Obviously, Visions of Johanna here and so much more make this album what it is - it's smoother than a lot of Bringing It All Back Home (to me anyway) but lovely. For a real treat, try to get your hands on the live Visions of Johanna 1966 at the Philharmonic.... that entire bootleg is amazing.
