Rare Leonard Cohen Vinyl 45 RPM – Dress Rehearsal Rag & Avalanche

Dominique BOILE writes a succinct explanation of (1) the rarity of this record and his motivation for acquiring it:

For more than forty years I have searched for every vinyl 45 rpm of Leonard Cohen’s songs. I had never seen this one before. So I bought it.

Dominique also notes that is there is no specified side A or side B in this Canadian 45 which features Dress Rehearsal Rag & Avalanche (perfect for parties and sock hops).
