Default "Suzanne" by Leondard Cohen (Cover)

What a pleasant song to wake up to this Monday morn. A song to bring back the the memories of a time gone past. Although, I didn't mind the LC version Judy Collins was ear candy at the time. Nice take on this classic Glen & thx for a walk down memory lane.

Your Olson sounds wonderful. ;>)

The guitar is my Olson SJ (cedar over EIR), capo 3.

Thanks very much for listening!

Wonderful, Glenn!

One of my favorite songs, based on a real person.

FWIW, the tea and oranges refer to Constant Comment tea.

Hi Dave,

Thanks so much for listening and for commenting. I'm very gratified that you liked this!

And thanks for the info on Constant Comment tea. I remember reading that myself about where the "...tea and oranges that come all the way from China..." came from. http://www.npr.org/sections/thesalt/...s-song-suzanne

When I was first dating my wife about 51 years ago now, she gave me Constant Comment tea. It really had a wonderful aroma, but since I was a coffee drinker, I thought the tea tasted like colored water. She was patient with me, though... I did learn to drink and enjoy tea later.

Also, recently there was quite a bit of news about the real Suzanne who died, I think, just this year. Leonard Cohen had an interesting relationship with her; I am thinking a platonic relationship, but I am not sure if my memory is accurate on that. Either way, she most certainly was a real person and must have been quite the free spirit. She apparently really did go to the Salvation Army to get interesting clothes and feathers to dress and decorate herself and, I think, her little boy.

She was pretty: https://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/verdal.html

Thanks so much for chiming in here Dave!

- Glenn

Default Suzanne

Nicely done Glenn. Suzanne takes me back to my College days in N. Calif. I spent hours listening to (my favorite version, on vinyl)Suzanne by Roberta Flack. Although not acoustic guitar, the arrangement has a string section with contrary motion that will knock your socks off (as we use to say).
Love your Olson and your style. Thanks for posting

Hi Ricketts,

Thank you very much for your comments and kind words! I don't think I have heard Roberta Flack's version of "Suzanne." I will look that up! Looks like a have a treat to look forward to!
