Goldin - thanks so much :D
Those in Pula certainly had a good deal
Beautiful place , beautiful weather , relatively inexpensive ticket prices and a rehearsal or 2 for free full of gems.

Oh well - i have to take responsibility for deciding not to go!

My pleasure!
I like to think we can hope for two alternative complete or nearly complete recordings of this soundcheck in the nearest future ;-)

Also, a friend of mine has recorded two songs from the August 2 solo soundcheck (and Maarten's MP3 of Banks of Marble is already online).
Looks like we can (You say that you must and you will) make a nice bootleg, in addition to (no doubt) excellent Raincoat1's recording of the concert itself (already announced on the Forum).

Thanks so much Roman and ilia, for those unique soundcheck videos!

And Roman, I thoroughly enjoyed the new Blues song. Leonard really gets into it at one stage! Excellent guitar work all the way through!
It does remind me of the first LC Blues song (Blues For The Jews/Billy Sunday).

Many thanks to DrH for it!

Leonard Cohen's Surprise Kiddush

Jewish Canadian singer joins Israeli ambassador in Croatia for Shabbat eve celebration, lauds Israel culture week held in Istria peninsula

Itamar Eichner
Published: 8.09.13, 13:40 / Israel Culture

The Israeli Embassy in Croatia could not think of a more festive opening for its Israel Summer Magic events – a week of Israeli cultural events launched last weekend at the Istria peninsula.

Jewish Canadian singer Leonard Cohen, who happened to perform in Istria last Friday evening, joined the Israeli celebration after his concert, opening it with a festive Kiddush (blessing said over wine on Shabbat) together with Israeli Ambassador to Croatia Yossi Amrani.

The singer expressed his enthusiasm over the Israeli culture week, saying that was the way to create a bridge between people and cultures.

Cohen noted that he would have loved to participate in the events, but explained he had to fly to a concert in Scandinavia.
