We watched a a BBC 4 Documentary last night titled "Rock Britannia. An Observation in 3 Movements". During an interview with Rick Wakeman some Festival footage was shown. Rick was talking over this and amongst other things, for a few seconds (3 or 4 at most) a soundless Leonard Cohen was shown singing facing an unseen guitarist. This was just standing amongst a crowd of people. Judging by his hairstyle it was most probably the "Isle of Wight festival". I have seen various clips from this festival but not this particular one. My wife and I tried to guess what he might have been singing. As it was only a very short clip and we do not lipread does anyone know? Perhaps it will feature in the upcoming CD/DVD release...

You need to watch it when you have a fair bit of spare time
