I also would be most grateful to find some way to hear these concerts and indeed the studio outtakes.

Devastated to be so late to this. Lifelong Leonard Cohen fan, would deeply appreciate any clue on where to listen to and/or download the '72 or '67 recordings. Would be happy to pay as well. come_yaar@outlook.com

Hi, I run a music blog called "Albums That Should Exist." I'd never heard of these Cohen copyright extension albums until recently. But I found out about them mostly by stumbling onto these discussions at this forum.

I've signed up to this forum just to return the favor and say that I've found the 1970 copyright extension. I've posted three albums from it recently on my blog. You can find them here:

Royal Albert Hall, London, Britain, 5-10-1970

https://albumsthatshouldexist.blogspot. ... ondon.html

Berkeley Community Theatre, Berkeley, CA, 11-15-1970

https://albumsthatshouldexist.blogspot. ... unity.html

News from the Authorities - Non-Album Tracks (1970)

https://albumsthatshouldexist.blogspot. ... s-non.html

The first one is a fantastic sounding, soundboard concert. It was missing all the banter between songs, but I added in banter from a different 1970 concert (in Frankfurt, Germany) from just four days earlier. I think the mix works well, and sounds exactly like a complete concert from that year.

The Berkeley concert has a very similar set list, and the same great sound quality, but that one is without the added banter.

"New from the Authorities" is my best of selection of the studio outtakes from the 1970 copyright release. There are some great things there, especially the long missing Cohen version of his original song "Priests."

I didn't post the entire copyright release, because most of it would be for die-hard Cohen fans only, such as many slightly different takes of the same song. But I've made the whole thing available via SoulseekQT. Just search for Cohen, copyright, and 1970, and you'll probably find it there.

Furthermore, I have a lead on finding the 1967 copyright release. If all goes well, I'd like to post that on my blog in a few weeks. Knock on wood. If anyone has the 1972 copyright release, please let me know, so that can be shared too.

I'm working on 1967. I'm optimistic on that. But I recently got my hands on most of the 1972 concerts from that copyright release. :) I'll be posting some of that soon as well, and making all of it available via SoulseekQT.

Note that I posted a link to this music in a different thread at this forum a few days ago, just in case you missed it:

The thread is in the News section, and it's called:

what's strange is the leak of the set doesn't seem to match this tracklist, so I'm wondering if someone retagged the set wrong, or if there's actually some difference here

the 10 CD list you have quoted in your post comprises 28 different songs with a total of 152 takes. The link above this list shows seven albums labelled 'Leonard Cohen 1967'. These are the same as the CDs 1, 2, 5, 6, 7, 8, and 9 in the 10 CD list. The CDs 3, 4, and 10 are not included in the album list.
The download offered generously by albumsshouldexist includes 22 different songs with a total of 106 takes. A close comparison between the number of takes for each song shows significant differences between the 10 CD version and the download (first number is the number of takes in the 10 CD version / second number ist the number of takes in the download):
- Anyone Can See (1 / 4)
- Avalanche (5 / 3)
- The Beach of Idios (1 / 0)
- Blessed Is the Memory (2 / 2)
- Come On Marianne (5 / 6)
- Dress Rehearsal Rag (0 / 1)
- Hey, That's No Way to Say Goodbye (17 / 12)
- Jewels on Your Shoulder (5 / 3)
- Lost Change (5 / 0)
- Love Calls you by Your Name (23 / 22)
- Love is the Item (1 / 0)
- Master Song (1 / 1)
- Middle of the Night (5 / 0)
- Nancy, Where Have You Been Sleeping (1 / 1)
- One of Us Cannot Be Wrong (11 / 12)
- Sing Another Song, Boys (2 / 0)
- Sisters of Mercy (9 / 4)
- So Long, Marianne (1 / 0)
- Splinter (1 / 0)
- Standing on the Stairs (0 / 6)
- Store Room (2 / 1)
- Stories of the Street (11 / 9)
- The Stranger (8 / 2)
- The Sun Is My Son (1 / 0)
- Suzanne (10 / 4)
- Teachers (9 / 3)
- Tonight Will Be Fine (5 / 2)
- Winter Lady (3 / 3)
- Winter Lady (Travelling Lady) (1 / 0)
- You Know Who I Am (6 / 2)
As you can see not only the number of takes differ, but furthermore some songs are only included in either the 10 CD version or the download. I must admit that up to now I haven't had the time to listen to the complete download to check whether any songs might be misidentified. It further does not help that in the download the takes seem to be renumbered and the recording date information is missing. Full clarification is only possible by close comparison of the download with the 10 CD version. If anybody can provide access (via PM) to the 10 CD version I would therefore be very grateful.

I would be grateful for access to the 10 CD version as well, although I am unbelievably grateful to @albumsshouldexist for access to the 106 track version, too!
