Songs from the Life of Leonard Cohen video

Post by honeyrose » Fri Mar 21, 2008 10:36 pm

Hi there everyone

I have a VHS recording of the tv show Songs from the Life of Leonard Cohen and I have the commercial version on VHS. The show is excellent by the way if you have never seen it. But my video player is getting old and the Leonard tapes are almost worn out. Does anyone have access to a DVD version of this show (the commercial version is of course copy protected). Only it seems it will not be released on DVD any time soon due to contractural issues. I am going a long flight to Canada in April and it would be great to have it to play on my laptop on the plane.

Can anyone help? I will of course pay reasonable costs and postage.

Just to add, my VHS version of Songs from the Life....that I recorded from the original television show at the time is not bad quality. I should be able to copy it to DVD as it is not copy protected but I have problems with my DVD recorder and cannot get it to do this properly. However I recorded it back in 1988 and the technology has moved on since then so some editing might improve its quality. That is a step too far for me technically, even if I had a suitable recording device.

Anybody?
