Leonard Cohen – So Long Marianne
Dublin: July 20, 2009
The quality of the camera work and audio by Albert Noonan producing this video earns accolades and appreciation from those of us not privileged to be in Dublin to hear the Leonard Cohen performance of “So Long Marianne” in person. According to many fans, this was Cohen’s best rendition of the song during the 2008-2010 World Tour. As a bonus, the chorus is performed as an Irish sing-along to excellent effect.
