Video or DVD material of 1988

Postby fritsn » Mon Jun 29, 2009 5:14 pm

I am looking for video's and/or DVD's of the live performances of Leonard Cohen in the late 80'ies. Mr. Cohen was appearing on many European live TV shows at that time with in the band Bob Metzger performing on guitar, Bob Furgo on keyboards & violin, Steve Meador on drums, Stephen Zirkel on bass, keyboards & trumpet, John Bilezikjian on oud & mandolin, Tom McMorran on keyboards and the vocals by backing singers Julie Christensen and Perla Batalla. Tour manager was Geoff Clennell.

Are there any recordings available from that time?

regards,

This might not be much of a help to you, but I think you can find a lot of live performances from '88 on Youtube, I think there are at least a few from San Sebastian and those I believe are from '88. The song "Avalanche" comes to mind.

it would leave us all so vacant and so deeply unimpressed."

Hi Frits,

Visit http://www.marktplaats.nl and search for "Leonard Cohen".
You will find several CD's and DVD's for sale about 1988.
I myself found the DVD "Leonard Cohen - The concert 1988" there.

Those are pirate DVDRs stolen from the DVDRs circulated here among Forum members.
Better to download them for free from dimeadozen, KG and similar free sites.
