Re: MERRY CHRISTMAS AND HAPPY NEW YEAR

Hi,

As Dylan sings "time is a jet plane it moves so fast" . Many thanks to all in the Cohen control tower. May 2013 bring what we need, may we be open to that and may we have safe passage through whatever is ahead of us.

All the best,

Hi,

Re: History of songs performed twice in the same concert

Hi Tom, Thanks for a very insightful post. In an earlier post I had retracted the information that Leonard played Bird twice during the late concert in Dublin,Dec.14th 1979.

Unfortunately my French isn't good enough to read the entire text. It does cover Leonard's life/recording life up to the release of Old Ideas . If this info...
