There Is A War

Post by FMJ89 » Thu Feb 18, 2010 10:37 am

Can anyone tell what year this live version of There Is A War on this page is from? I was thinking 1979. I'm REALLY liking it.

I think you're right, it sounds almost exactly like versions I have heard from 1979 (although I do not know which concert this one is from). It rocks, doesn't it? :D

Absolutely! Rather than the compilation that is Field Commander Cohen (which is heavy on the mellow songs and the violin), they should just have released a full concert CD (or double CD) from that time period, which would have had a greater variety of songs and provided a more accurate experience of a Cohen concert from that period. That would have been a far more satisfying album!

Yeah I mean Cohen played such a huge variety of songs on that tour (I think he did around 30 songs at one of the hammersmith shows that the Field Commander Cohen tracks are pulled from) that I wish they had just done a complete show or just included more tracks. Who knows maybe someday we'll get more tracks for tour. I'm hoping to get my hands on soundboards of some of the shows at some point.
