burningthingie, marg took that photo. I was in Liverpool catching up on the ironing, cleaning, washing, ;-) grouting the roof ridge tiles, relaying the magic path in the fairy glen, and giving Albert ----------------------------------->>>>>
his yearly bath and shampoo.
It would have been wonderful if Liverpool Linda (Serendipity) could have been with you all. A new member with a burgeoning love of all that is 'Cohen.' The best concert yet by everyone's accounts!!!!
Unfortunately, he "may not pass this way again." But the memories will stay alive as long as we stay alive.

Hello BV,
I am having trouble uploading my own photos using a new laptop, so my clever husband has helped put them through his own computer. I was one of the group sitting on the steps before the concert at the Palau Sant Jordi.

Wasn't it just the most brilliant few days? :D

This video is took of Telenoticiés of TV3 (TV news in Catalan) on 22 at midday. In addition to the intro ovation (part), in the journalist comentaries we have the most recurrent clichés. In the other hand Alberto Manzano talks about the essence of Cohen's work as an expression of the mystery.

The Barcelona recording appeared last night on dimeadozen, had 0 seeders and 36 peers. Now it's gone. I guess it's removed for the data correction so we can expect it any moment.

Tom

That's the second time the show has been pulled....I'm guessing there is something amiss with the data files...if that's the case hopefully the uploader will post a brand new 'FIXED' version when everything has been sorted
