Re: Austin City Limits 1988 (Entire TV Broadcast)

Thank you for the YouTube upload!
But can you upload it in higher quality - 720p or 1080p?

Solveig Slettahjell sings "Famous Blue Raincoat"

Just wanted to inform you all - as it doesn't seem to be mentioned here - that the Norwegian jazz singer Solveig Slettahjell sings "Famous Blue Raincoat" on her 2011 album "Antologie". I think it's a beautiful version.

Cohen has ONE bad habit

I'm new in this forum, so I don't know if this has been brought up earlier. I love Leonard Cohen, so this is with all due respect, but I have to say that there is ONE thing that irritates me with his concerts: That he constantly introduces his musicians in the middle of the songs, and often even in ...

Oslo Konserthus, May 1988, on YouTube

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 f...

Re: Kalvoya Norway 1984 concert footage on YouTube

I'm the one who uploaded the videos from Kalvøya, Norway, 1985. Thank you all for the kind responses! I have just discovered that the concert was not in 1984, but in 1985 (which the observant ones can see written on the stage in the video). Since there is a 10 minutes limit to YouTube videos, I coul...
