Please also let me know - why Canada only (other than the fact that LC is Canadian)

I came here to post this information too but you beat me to it Hartmut! I didn't realise it would be "Live in Fredericton" when I read it in this morning's Ottawa Citizen. What a treat!

I wonder if non-Canadians can download it if you go into your iTunes account and change the country (Store, View Account, Change Country or Region).

Mary I tried to change my ITunes account to Canada and it wouldn't let me. I would have to set up a new account.
So it doesn't work from the US.
too bad.

Yep, you can't do that. I tried now, it says that my postal code is not Canadian, that my Visa credit number is not Canadian etc. .......

I'm going to find out whether or not this "EP" will also be released on vinyl or CD. Will let you know.

That would be a treat for my collection.

I am checking eBay daily hoping for Show Me the Place single or anything...

It's worse than that: I have a mailing address in Ottawa and a VPN that routes via Ottawa (so I appear to the iTunes store as if I'm connecting from there) but without a Canadian credit card you just can't get a Canadian iTunes account...

Hi Folks,

Don't fret! I just downloaded this little gem, and I will start a vine over in the collectors and traders corner and get it rolling!

Cheers from Canada!

Hi Lisa,
Since it's only 5 songs/files, perhaps you can upload it using https://www.wetransfer.com/ and put the link here or send it in pm to everyone who wants this EP.

Thanks for downloading and making it available for us!

Hi Maarten,

I will attempt to do the MP3 thing (someone else sent me a link to another site). Give me some time, and I'll see what I can do!

I will also do the vine, because I know there are people who don't download!

Cheers,
Lisa

From Jarkko (in another thread - Jarkko is apparently at his smartphone right now:)
jarkko wrote:The Fredericton live stuff is limited to Canadians and iTunes only, and only 24 hours. There are no plans to release it in the usual way.

Sony will be switching the song on the splash page on Leonard Cohen.com from “Show Me The Place” to “The Darkness” next Wednesday. “The Darkness” is also going to be played on the radio that day in Canada and the US.
