Glaux's setlist from Athens differs from Sophia's as it shows there were three encores, not two.

I'd same it's same with Lucca. The setlist shows two encores, but Leonard left and came back 3 times, I am sure of that. (Maybe even four. Once he left, and then suddenly returned to encore before the band left the stage.) Anyhow, I am sure that one break was before If It Be Your Will or Sisters of Mercy, like in Glaux's listing for Athens.

Re The Big Chill, I should point out that one other difference to Glastonbury was that there were no encores at Glasto but at The Big Chill, Leonard went off after Closing Time for a mini-encore, though the band stayed onstage

That's a very good job that you have been doing with the setlists. Obviously a labour of love.
Paul's memory is correct Leonard did sing Famous Blue Raincoat before I Tried To Leave You on the 20th.

I was also there on the night and remember it very well, plus it's one of my favourite audience recordings.

And if proof were needed then surely the scouserart artwork would clinch it...........

Ken,
I forgot to ask:
do you happen to have the front cover artwork for this cd (Manchester 20th)? I really like the back artwork! Where can I look for other artwork for the 2008-tour?

You can find some artwork for the recent concerts on my Yahoo site.
http://launch.groups.yahoo.com/group/le ... art/files/

Yahoo keep changing their ways of operating their sites. So I'm not too sure if you still have to register with them before being able to access their group sites. My site is an 'open to all' site so you shouldn't have any problems. There is also an insert available on the site. Just in case I've pasted in the front cover for you.
I made this particular artwork to fit a 3cd jewelcase so you may have to resize or jiggle about with it if you are using any other form of storage. You may recognize the front cover as being part of the poster outside the Opera House that we all queued up to our photo taken beside.

Ta Ken

You do have to register with them, Ken, and also with the Leonard Cohen Artwork Group, but it's well worth it. What a treasure trove of professional-looking artwork! You must have spent hours on it. I wish I had discovered this years ago. Thank you for your generosity in sharing it with us.
