"This is a private recording and not for sale"
"When I was young, I often used to play the guitar for my mother, in
nightime, and all these Leonard Cohen songs I loved since I bought my
first LC record (Songs of Love and Hate) when I was twelve. My mother
she mostly had a glass of italian red vine - sitting at the kitchen
table. Although I never was a singer nor musician I told her I am
doing a recording one day. Only for her. I did. Years later - after
she had left us. My mother died on cancer in 1989 at the age of 59. I
miss her and I still do - so I called this very private record:
EDITH. Thats her name. And the picture on the cover: this is my
mother Edith. (Not the one from Leonards novel "Beautiful Loosers",
not the sparrow from Paris ...) This vinyl record was made for
remembering her, for me, my brothers and sister, for my friends and
with the help of some friends. It`s homemade, in 1997, with very
small equipment and far away of professional recording, in Cologne,
Germany, in a friends room under the roof - it was so hot that time,
and all the plants ... - but with all the good feelings you got by
doing music and singing together with people you like. This record
never will be on the market and you cannot buy it anywhere. "Edith"
could only be a present to one you like. There are only a few left."
