It's also been on YouTube complete since 20 Dec 2019 - https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=O ... GWUDmaisQA

....but there's no guarantee it will stay there :razz:

Even so, it is listed on subscriber channel Leonard Cohen under albums - https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCi25ui ... C1eyPP1DAQ
It doesn't have to be perfect, it just has to B4real ~ me

I was browsing Spotify yesterday. And I saw there are a lot of other bootlegs listed under the Leonard Cohen artist page as well. Some are actually the same recordings, but different releases:
  • Live From Paris Theatre, London, March 20th 1968, BBC Broadcast (remastered)
  • Songs From A Stage: The Lost Broadcast (Live)
  • Austin City Limits: The Classic 1988 Texas Broadcast
  • The Lost Sessions: Classic BBC Recordings
  • Dress Rehearsal Rag: The John Peel Broadcast
  • Live From The Mixed Bag Show, NY, April 28th 1985 WNEW-FM Broadcast (Remastered)
  • Talk Of The Nation Interview with Ray Suares - Nov 23rd 1993 NPR-FM Broadcast
Jarkko, do you happen to have any idea why these recordings are up on Spotify? And listed among the other offical LC releases on the LC artist page?

Kind regards,
2008: Manchester, Brussels (2), Rotterdam - 2009: Lisboa - 2010: Lille, Dortmund - 2012: Ghent (3), Amsterdam (2) - 2013: Antwerp, Oberhausen, Brussels, Rotterdam, Amsterdam!

Well I'm obviously under a rock because I only discovered these today. I listen to most of my music on Spotify these days, but since I've all Leonard's albums saved, I didn't have to go to his artist page. I only did so today because I was too lazy to scroll down to Thanks For The Dance, and knew it would be at the top of the artist page 🤣
