Oslo Konserthus, May 1988, on YouTube

Postby kkjohns » Sat Aug 08, 2009 5:54 pm

I've uploaded eight videos on YouTube from Cohen's concert in Oslo Konserthus, Norway, May 1988 (don't know if it's May 1st or 7th). Unfortunately, most of the songs are incomplete, as they are intercepted with interviews with Cohen, sometimes even in the middle of the song, but the interviews are fine too. The videoes are ripped from a TV program from NRK, and together they constitute the whole program, 49 minutes:
1. First We Take Manhattan (complete): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=1K2t2yWdhIg
2. Joan of Arc: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IzecU4LuMZY
3. I'm Your Man: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=XLqGGPWLaOA
4. Ain't No Cure for Love: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=E8vAH57hLNU
5. Chelsea Hotel #2 (complete): http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=i2dZNxxOqM8
6. Hallelujah: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=zcbnQeRT65M
7. Tower of Song: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4QAW3pZXtds
8: Take This Waltz: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Ia5hBa7y-gI

Thank you, kkjohns. One of my favourite programmes - excellent interview, full of interesting stuff also (and I like the interviewer also;) Sadly the songs weren't completely aired.

Your clips look excellent - did you recorded it from TV in 2007? I have the DVD - NRK broadcasted new interview about the Book of Longing (shot in his kitchen in Montreal), and as an addition, they re-broadcasted 1988 show from the archives.


Btw, it's May 1st, 1988. You can check every recording at http://www.leonardcohenlive.com

Yes, I recorded it from TV in 2006. I saw the concert on TV in 88, but didn't have a recorder then. I have uploaded the Montreal interview on YouTube as well:

Kaare - thanks so much for uploading these - and then putting them here at the forum! I just listened to them all on YouTube - and was going to do just that - put them here!! But I did a search and found that you had already done it. I missed seeing this thread last August.

Wonderful videos!

However - "Ft Mikke" has just uploaded a 46+ minute video to YouTube called "Leonard Cohen in Oslo 80's "
Including some of the songs from the May 1, 1988 Oslo concert - and some interview excerpts.
