Thank you Albert for that song; I saw the stemp and he treated it so gracefully.\
I sang along with Marianne in the front row.
Prospera, probably you stood next to Albert and me, Albert was the only-one not singing, but he was making the beautiful video's.

Albert - for those of us across the pond, many, many thnaks - it is just wonderful to see, hear and feel the continuing connection between Leonard and the audience - resonating back and forth - I was so touched by the audience singing with Leonard as they poured their collective hearts out! "laugh again, cry again" - Just beautiful!

LC: ..."it's closing time"....
Audience: "NO,NO, NO!" (just as Amy Winehouse in Rehab)

I couldn't find it recorded, maybe our Sir. Albert?!?
here it is ..

Closing time followed by Save the last dance for me.

Albert Albert Albert! Thank you so much for capturing such a wonderful happening that will go down in LC lore. I love the audience refrain No No No and his smiling response. He enjoyed the audience as much as the audience enjoyed him.

Albert thank you so much for taking the time to make these videos for us! You are a multi talented man.
Its so nice to be transported right to the concert for those of us not there. The clarity of your work is wonderful.
I have not watched them all as I am savoring each one and waiting for the right time to watch.
I was not going to watch any until October but decided that was not possible.
Thanks again for all your dedication to this.
Cheers

Thanks everyone for posting all your wonderful video's & pictures! I'm totally in awe again of LC... especially now that I had 5th row seats (first night in Amsterdam) and 1st ! row seats (2nd night). The end was amazing, yelling No, No, No [read guitar technician's blog: they were thinking Yes, Yes, Yes ;-) ] together with everyone else.
Read my blog http://www.zivaya.nl/how-to-be-a-mensch/ including my mp3 recording of Come Healing.

Amsterdam..Bird on the Wire.

This is the song that got Marie, hooked on Leonard's music.

Has anyone else noticed the professional recording that is occurring during the song "Amen". You can clearly see it in this video:

I'd like to believe this is to mean that Leonard will be releasing another DVD / Blu-Ray of select live performances. More Songs From the Road?? :D

And the same for me too 8) I still have the words I wrote down on a scrap of paper when I first heard it in the early 70's. Thanks for all your wonderful videos Albert. :D

....and to everyone else who has posted videos, photos and links, you don't know how much I appreciate them. Australia is such a long way from everything and all that you do here on the forum brings it all so much closer for me. I don't really know if he will make it downunder this time, and if he does I feel it will not be for a very long time so I'm truly grateful for all that you do.

Geert, I love the raincoat photo!
