Hartmut, so nice to see your smiling face again!

Yes, I’m an animal lover so it does seem to be in the DNA ....and for me, it appears they know that too

Hehe! Vickie, I love your description of our conversation! Yes, I knew you would love this particular album and everything always works out in the long run!

I had a friend who used to say that until she went with me to her first LC concert and then later heard that concert played back to her. It drastically changed her mind because she was instantly transported back to that unforgettable night. Funny how the sound of other people cheering and other noises wasn’t distracting anymore because she was one of them! And if I’m totally honest I can remember when that applied to me also!
Vickie wrote: By the way, where were these songs recorded? I didn’t see anything in the liner notes that said if they were all during one performance or throughout the tour (I would assume the latter?).
Sorry, I forgot to add this to the bottom of my previous list a couple of pages back -
Songs recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, on December 4, 5, 6, 1979; and at the Dome Theatre, Brighton, on December 15, 1979.
That’s the official listing - I think I can narrow it down a little but it’s still a gestimate
Most seem to be from London. I think over half the songs come from London 6th – Tracks 1, 2, 3, 4, 6, 9 and 11. Tracks 7 and 12 are London 4th or 5th. Tracks 5, 8 and 10 are London 4th or 5th or Brighton 15th...... Phew!
.... and I laughed out loud at the scenario with your husband and LC’s songs again!

I actually only bought this book because of his association to Leonard. While there are some poems in it I like, I much prefer Leonard's. Seems I purchased this book at a bargain price too!
