Vinyl Version of “Leonard Cohen Toronto ’88” Bootleg


Peter Torbijn of the Netherlands sends word that a vinyl version of the “Leonard Cohen Toronto ’88” bootleg on the Rox Vox label is listed at Forced Exposure. The description from that site follows:

180-gram vinyl. By 1988 Leonard Cohen had undergone something of a renaissance in North America, propelled by the success of Jennifer Warnes’s 1987 Famous Blue Raincoat album. He supported his widely acclaimed synthesizer-heavy I’m Your Man album (1988) with a tour of Europe, the US, and his native Canada. This superb performance at Massey Hall in Toronto on November 9, 1988, was broadcast live on CBC Radio. The complete broadcast is presented here with background notes and images.

This is yet another bootleg of Leonard Cohen’s November 9, 1988 concert at Massey Hall in Toronto, which was broadcast live on CBC radio and rebroadcast on March 11, 1990.

Peter notes “there are other pressings on vinyl of the same concert, but I think this is a new one.”
