Exclusive Book Excerpt: Leonard Cohen Writes 'Hallelujah' in 'The Holy or the Broken'
Rolling Stone Mon, Dec 3, 2012 4:40 PM EST...
.

Leonard Cohen's career had reached a low point when he wrote "Hallelujah." It was 1984, and he had been out of the spotlight for quite a long time. His 1977 LP, Death of a Ladies' Man, a collaboration with Phil Spector, was a commercial and critical disappointment, and his next album Recent Songs fared no better. When Cohen submitted the songs for his subsequent LP, Various Positions, to Columbia, label execs didn't hear "Hallelujah," the opening song of Side Two, as anything special. They didn't even want to release the album, though it eventually came out in Europe in 1984 and America the following year.


It took a few years for "Hallelujah" to emerge as a classic. Bob Dylan was one of the first to recognize its brilliance, playing it at a couple of shows in 1988. The Velvet Underground's John Cale tackled it on the piano for a 1991 Cohen tribute disc, and three years later, Jeff Buckley took inspiration from that rendition and covered it on his 1994 album, Grace. It was that version that eventually created a huge cult around the song, and it's since been covered by everybody from Bono to Bon Jovi. It's far and away Leonard Cohen's most famous composition, even though many people don't even realize that he wrote it.

Alan Light dove deep into the history of the song for his new book, The Holy or the Broken: Leonard Cohen, Jeff Buckley, and the Unlikely Ascent of 'Hallelujah.' Here is an excerpt.

In June 1984, Cohen and Lissauer recorded the album that would become Various Positions in New York's Quadrasonic Sound studios. In the album's arrangements, for the first time on Cohen's recordings, synthesizers were prominent; they would come to define his sound more and more in the years to come. A group of musicians from Tulsa provided the backbone of the arrangements. Sid McGinnis who joined the band at Late Night with David Letterman that same year and has remained with the show ever since, in addition to recording with the likes of Bob Dylan, David Bowie, and Dire Straits provided additional guitar parts.
Jennifer Warnes, who had sung backup with Cohen on previous albums and tours, was brought further into the spotlight as a featured vocalist, a counterpoint to the limited parameters of Cohen's voice. Hawaiian-born Anjani Thomas was one of the backup singers on these sessions; she would go on to become Cohen's longtime companion, and he produced an album of her singing his songs, Blue Alert, in 2006.

I seem to recall seeing Cohen perform the song on Letterman. Talk about a brilliant mind. It was the most requested song when Buckley played live, the crowd was always yelling "hallelujah!"

Vandals destroy millions of dollars worth of Italian wine
By Mike Krumboltz The Sideshow 2 hrs 56 mins ago...


It seems borderline sacrilegious. A group of vandals destroyed millions of dollars worth of Case Basse di Soldera wine in Italy's Tuscan hills. No bottles were stolen.


About 16,500 gallons of future Brunello di Montalcino were lost. The winery's owner posted a statement following the destruction, which read it part:


"This gesture deserves no description, such is the seriousness that it will ring out well beyond the boundaries of our winery. The authorities will do their duty, we trust, with the help of those who want to collaborate."

Brunello is one of Italy's best known (and priciest) wines. Bloomberg reports that it is made "exclusively with Sangiovese grapes according to the standards set in 1888 for the producers. The wine is aged in oak casks for five years before it can be drunk." Bottles of the winery's 2006 vintage sell for between $250 and $350 each. This ain't your average bottle of Two Buck Chuck.


The winery is run by Gianfranco Soldera and his family. He told Reuters, "This is beyond me. I can't get into the minds of the people who did this but I guess if someone plans to intimidate me it has to start somehow." He continued: "We will carry on," Soldera said. "We have passion for this land and its produce and no amount of intimidation can stop us."

We've moved on, now Frito. Is your POTUS going to get you that amnesty? I think not (he doesn't seem to be moving in that direction, does he?). You and Raza have much work to do, but i fear you've gotten lazy. Even La Raza knows not to trifle with Barack, no? They better hope they can keep the Dream, if you know what i mean and it won't be by antagonizing United American Eagles. LOL and LOL
