I love this recitation from Leonard so much I've made a video of it using a recording from the night and photos I've took of Leonard from various concerts. Hope ye like it :D

Wonderful poem and concert indeed! Thanks for replying, much appreciated.
A bit of background why I did this: I was listening to this on Wednesday night and then I was listening to the version on Live in London and I noticed a massive difference to the way Leonard recites it now. It takes my breath away and I just knew I needed to get this version to a wider audience of people who were not in Vegas.

Hi Gwen,

Just watched your excellent video :D Great pics. Seems you have been watching vids and comparing them too :razz: It is interesting how this poem and the songs have evolved over that time.

Did you notice that he says "all he was" twice in a row instead of "all he is" and then "all he was" near the end.

Thank you for this!

Hi Bev thanks, yes I noticed that ;-) "There is a crack....." I love the way Leonards songs keep evolving over time and always sound amazing and I loved the thread you started about the differences between the start and end of the tour :D

Gwen,

Thank you for this lovingly and beautifully put together video. I've always been aware of Neil's part in this but for some reason, watching your video makes his contribution to this recitation really pop.

Warmest regards,
Mary

(P.S. Are there actually a thousand Xs in your ending thank you shot?)
