Leonard Cohen Live Birmingham Odeon - December 8TH 1979

Post by bloom » Mon Dec 06, 2021 8:50 am

Here's a link to a live recording from 1979 that I stumbled across on Youtube. The sound quality's really good and I haven't seen any other links to it on this site (though I may be wrong about that). Hopefully someone here will enjoy it like I have!

Hi bloom, welcome to the forum! Yes, a most enjoyable concert experience!
When I first saw your link I was hoping it contained all the songs from that concert.
Here's the complete list including the Soundcheck - https://www.leonardcohenfiles.com/79birmingham.html
Those songs in your link have been available elsewhere for a while and were also on YouTube some time ago.
Thanks for putting the link here now - let's hope it stays current this time.

Thought I'd add a link to a song from the Soundcheck of that same concert as below -
Red River Valley - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p98246laTNQ
All the songs from this Soundcheck were available some years ago but I've never heard LC sing "Old Tom Jones" :)
