An Audio Recording of Leonard Performing during Yom Kippur War

Postby MarieM » Tue Oct 03, 2017 11:43 pm

A website in Israel says it has discovered an archival tape of artists performing for the soldiers in 1973 during the Yom Kippur war. On the tape Leonard performs "So Long, Marianne." Surprisingly, the recording is of good quality.

You can use this link to go to the website.

Scroll down to the second smaller video. Leonard's performance begins about 33:20.
