COMMENTS:
This is one of my favourite Cohen live performances – recommended
Don’t miss out on this one, if you have an interest in Leonard Cohen
Strange that 2 of the best Cohen live concerts (if combining performance with quality) took place on April 18th (1988 and 1993)

Enjoy…Erik_Snow

Audience recording
from Row P, seat 118, immediately to the right of the soundboard
Equipment: Edirol R-09 (built in condenser mics)> recorded on SD card > card reader >PC> Sound Forge used to split tracks, roll off a little bit of the bass, and lower levels on audience applause > FLAC.

This was the first of two shows that Leonard did at Bass Concert Hall and I was mightily impressed. As he promised at the beginning of the show, he gave it his all delivering 3 solid hours of music. His band and particularly his back-up singers all turned in powerful performances. From my position next to the soundboard, the recording captured the acoustics of the room, but also clearly captured all of the instrumentation. Leonardís soundman did an excellent job on this show.
