Leonard Cohen Concert Photos
Jaap Edenhal, Amsterdam – Oct 2, 1974

These photos, taken by Pete Purnell at the Oct 2, 1974 Leonard Cohen Jaap Edenhal, Amsterdam show, are  the only photos from this specific show I’ve been able to discover.

Pete comments on attending this concert:

The venue is in fact an ice rink named after a Dutch skating hero, Jaap Eden. My most vivid non photographic memory of the occasion is that of arriving very early and standing at the glass doors of the entrance adjacent to the stage. Inside we could hear, but not see, Leonard playing “Who By Fire.”

 1974 Band Members: Jeff Layton (banjo, guitar, mandolin, strings), Johnny Miller (bass), John Lissauer (keyboards, saxophone, woodwind),  Erin Dickens (vocals), Emily Bindiger (vocals)

Leonard Cohen In Concert 1974-1993: Photos By Pete Purnell: Pete Purnell contributed remarkable photos from the 2012 Leonard Cohen Tour. Consequently, when he mentioned photos he had taken at Cohen concerts in the 1970s and 1980s, I was eager to view them. And, when I saw these outstanding images, I was eager to post them for others to savor as well. Leonard Cohen In Concert 1974-1993: Photos By Pete Purnell comprises five photo sets, each typically containing four black and white shots, of Leonard Cohen concerts between 1974 and 1993. All posts in this series are listed at the Leonard Cohen In Concert 1974 To 1993: Photos By Pete Purnell.
