John Lennon‘s 1965 Rolls-Royce Phantom V limousine, with psychedelic
paintwork, was sold for a record sum of $3,006,385 this day in 1985, way
too much for my budget…

HISTORY – 7 April 1969

7 April 2019

On 7th April 1969, yes, a half century ago today LEONARD COHEN, the late, great Canadian singer/songwriter released his second LP, titled SONGS FROM A ROOM. American music weekly Rolling Stone wrote “Well, it looks like Leonard Cohen’s second
try won’t have them dancing in the streets either. It doesn’t take a great deal of listening
to realize that Cohen can’t sing, period. And yet, the record grows on you…”

This review says a lot about how the early Cohen records, before he became a bona fide icon, were perceived. Nobody really understood what this weird artist and his dark, lazy voice was about back then, although many understand this guy had something special.
The album reached #63 on the US Billboard Albums Chart and #2 on the UK charts.
