This is a composite video, submitted by it’s author.  This excerpt is from the YouTube blurb: On the 30th of June 2013 Leonard Cohen played ‘The Partisan’ in Vorst Nationaal, Brussels. This moment was caught on camera by four youtubers: Albertnoonan, Wirebirds, MadLennyfan and Gianluca Epirotti. I made a music video using the videos they shot.

My personal favorite is Albert Noonan’s version from Ghent on August 15, 2012, mainly because Mitch was standing for that performance. I think someone referred to UHTC for that song as “a band of gypsies”1 – very apt. Albert Noonan video – always reliably good sound and vision.

  1. I suspect Alan’s reference s to this excerpt from Review: Leonard Cohen at Vector Arena by Russell Baillie (New Zealand Herald. Jan 23, 2009): Somehow, Cohen’s ensemble, a sort of gypsy-soul rock-noir cabaret outfit dressed, as was their fedora-ed double-breasted leader like particularly stylish members of the French Resistance, were able to shrink the vastness of the venue down to the intimate scale of the music.
