High quality recording of Leonard Cohen’s July 9, 1985 appearance at the Montreux Jazz Festival, including stage banter. Worthy of special note are Tennessee Waltz, which was used on the Dear Heather album; the excellent “Vietnam version” of Diamonds In The Mine; a lovely rendition of There Is A War; and Anjani joining Leonard on Joan Of Arc.
Setlist: Bird On The Wire – The Law – Hey That’s No Way To Say Goodbye – There Is A War – Who By Fire – Dance Me To The End Of Love – Diamonds In The Mine – Night Comes On – The Gypsy Wife – Hallelujah – Avalanche – A Singer Must Die – The Stranger Song – Chelsea Hotel #2 – Story Of Isaac – Famous Blue Raincoat – Lover Lover Lover – Tennessee Waltz – The Partisan – Sisters Of Mercy – Memories – Passing Through – If It Be Your Will – Heart With No Companion – I Tried To Leave You – Suzanne – Coming Back To You – Joan Of Arc – Dance Me To The End Of Love
Musicians: Leonard Cohen – vocals, guitar; Richard Crooks – drums; John Crowder – bass, vocals; Ron Getman – guitar, pedal steel, vocals; Anjani Thomas – keyboards, vocals; Mitch Watkins – guitar, keyboards, vocals
This rendition of “I’m Your Man” features the Webb Sisters bundled up against the cold to the point of nonrecognition (Sharon Robinson was absent because of illness) and an animated Leonard Cohen, who appears to be pounding down a few loose boards on the stage with his feet.

Oh, and then Leonard Cohen and the Unified Heart Touring Company perform “So Long, Marianne.”
Then, the crowd applauds.

None of these items, one could argue, is important; that is, I would counter, why they are fun.
