Video: Leonard Cohen Performs One Of A Kind Version Of A Thousand Kisses Deep – Mt Baldy Zen Center 1996

Scene from the French documentary “Leonard Cohen Spring 96”, shot in Leonard Cohen’s cabin at Mt. Baldy Zen monastery by Armelle Brusq. Leonard Cohen is recording song A Thousand Kisses Deep, using Technics KN 3000 synthesizer. The track is apparently an early, demo version to different lyrics and complete different melody than one composed in collaboration with Sharon Robinson, for 2001 album Ten New Songs. Also, the poem included in the 2006 Book of Longing, recited during 2008 Tour, doesn’t have some of lyrics from this demo.
