Thanks clionamhic, delighted to get this ! So many great reviews of the Lissadell concerts - particularly loved Grainnemhaoil's. Just listening to "Lover, lover,lover" in the car while bringing the groceries in ( Don't unfortunately have Leonard to do this ! ) and reminded again what a thrill it was to hear this on Saturday night, all the way from 1974. We love the band, but sometimes it is great to hear just Leonard and his guitar, as it was in the beginning, as in "A singer must die" on Saturday too, there is something very moving to think of all the years he has been playing the guitar.

Yes, I agree, there was something very special about 'A singer must die' - just Leonard his guitar and his rapt audience!

Just to let Irish forum members know that there is a documentary on now 7pm, on RTE Radio 1 about the poetry of Leonard Cohen. I'm still on cloud nine after Sligo. Off to tune in.

Uploaded by "kiloindiaalfa" - beautiful video - Thanks!

There is no information that this performance was Sligo, but so far Sligo II (August 1st) is the only place that this has been performed.
And this performance contains extra verses.

"Leonard Cohen - 1000 kisses Deep - Extended version "

EDITING HERE - this is actually Albert Noonan's video from Albert Noonan Dublin O2, July 20, 2009 that someone else has uploaded. Not from Sligo!

Was away for the last ten days with no Internet. Missed all the contributions. Would anyone have Saturday night's version of So long Marianne and Bird on a Wire? I thought they were slightly better than Sunday night's. Here's hoping! Thanks for all the videos uploaded so far.

Here is a link for Melissas video of So Long Marianne. The picture is shaky but the sound is fantastic and while I wasn't at the Sunday show I have watched Alberts video and Saturday was so much better. I love the way we the audience were cheering and singing along. I had this video on repeat last Saturday night as I reminisced the previous week ;-) Even now 2 weeks later and several watches I still get goosebumps listening to this.

I haven't seen a video for Bird on a Wire though.
