I have come accross this youtube video through MaartenLC profile (Thanks Maarten) and was wondering where it was recorder from. Leonard mentions Amsterdam but the audiance doesn't really react on that phrase so I presume it was probably recorded there but when?
I really love the way he improvises on a happy tune that the band keeps on playing; I love when he gets funny ;-)
Sorry if this has already been asked before but I couldn't retrieve the post where it is mentioned.

Nicolas,
I think the info next to the video is correct: recorded on "30 October 1980 Concertgebouw Amsterdam"
Here's the complete setlist:

I've got this bootleg upstairs somewhere (I believe it's on one of the "Golden Voice" cd's, but I'm a bit lazy today to go and check to hear if this is the same recording, but I think it is.
Will check later probably...

Btw, Amsterdam 1980 Concertgebouw recording has just been uploaded to dimeadozen.org, in new upgraded version. It's rare FM recording in OK quality.

Thank you for posting this...I absolutely love it!!! 8)
My husband was at that concert at the Concertgebouw in 1972 in Amsterdam
He says he was sitting behind the stage and couldn't see anything but in the middle walked around and
sat on the floor in the front...(not allowed these days)..
This is brilliant...thanks again.
