Leonard Cohen live in Israel 1972_04_20
The songs LC writes and sings are, although sometimes difficult, always interesting. His music is always so very smooth. I can listen to him for hours.
Learn more about Leonard Cohen on Wikipedia or Yahoo.
Here's a beautiful concert he did 1972_04_20 at Yad Eliahu Sports Palace Tel Aviv.
The year of those bad Olympic Games what has come to be known as the Munich massacre....
Since then there haven't changed much. Why can't people live in peace together ? Or better said, why can't the leaders really do something about it....
The playlist of the above concert (done over 35 years ago is) :
Famous Blue Raincoat
Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye
Song To The Machines/I Love Spending The Night With Two Girls
Sisters Of Mercy
Chelsea Hotel (#1)
We Shall Not Be Moved
In them days it wasn't allowed in Israel to do concerts on Friday night because of the Sabbath. In recent years there is more entertainment available on Friday nights, but back then it was strictly forbidden. So on this friday you may join Leonard Cohen live.....
I post this to get a little bit of balance after my last friday's Ramadan article. After all, when you went to Wikipedia or Yahoo, you'll know Leonard Cohen is of Jewish origin.
I hope an 'old men' commenter understands I did choose this concert just for him.
In this offer you will find in the text file also a lot of info about Leonard Cohen's performances in Israel. Including info about this year's (last month) re-release of Ira Nadel's book 'Various Positions'. Also some other interesting links.
Hope also other readers wil find this interesting enough to get my file which is placed in the comments.
And if you have done so please listen carefully to Leonard Cohen's announcement of Suzanne and We shall not be moved........
