In an archaeological dig at his family home, James Finch unearthed his own copy of the first English language Leonard Cohen Information Service Newsletter (along with other treasures likely to show up on this site).
The first Newsletters were actually issued in German with three German Cohen fans, Martin Rupps, Gerhard Schinzel and Michael Lohse, as editors. Jim Devlin distributed an English translation of the German Newsletter until May 10, 1989 when the German version was discontinued. Devlin continued to issue quarterly Newsletters until December 1994.
