The woman with the shorter hair is Julie Christensen. Her hair is actually blonde. The woman with the long dark hair is Perla Batalla.

That's Julie on the left, Leonard in the middle and Perla on the right.

And to my mind those two shade it as the best backing singers that had ever toured with Leonard Cohen. Julie sure was blonde
I guess it all started for me sometime around Christmas 1967 and now, goodness me, it's.........2017 and fifty years later.
No one ever listens to me. I might as well be a Leonard Cohen record.

Sorry folks, I think I might be confusing you. Not the Official video with Julie and Perla. This one with Perla and unknown singer. Anyone know who she is.

That is a typical video made by and for the local TV to promote the concerts of the tour.
