Hi Everyone!

I'm glad to finally be the bearer of good news, and am very much touched by everybody's reactions! See, 2020 isn't all bad. I'm trying my darnedest to download the files in a DRM free format that hopefully won't be painfully rescinded in a couple weeks, stay tuned!

Could anyone post a Hi-Res cover pic and detailed track list here? In case, the 2nd batch disappear and we don't have backup. Thanks.

Hi WiTS,
I don't think Hi-Res photos can be posted here. There is a file size limit.
You can probably do just as well yourself, but here is a screen print of the cover.

Yes, thanks guys! Good to have all the info we can here for LC archival purposes and prosperity!

And here's a "prediction" for future similar "Christmas" albums or is it simply a "coincidence" ;-)
Either way, it's something to keep in mind but be observant all the time!

Re: Mysterious Leonard Cohen "1967 studio sessions" album - any information?

Post by meglos2000 »

After all the excitement of the 1971 recordings coming and going on iTunes, I was wondering if anyone could help me get hold of the 1967 studio outtakes that were also released for a short while for copyright reasons.

This is the only missing item I’m my Cohen collection, so any help would be massively appreciated!

All the best,

John
