Searching For The Best Online Video Of The Partisan By Leonard Cohen: Marseille 2010

marseilleWhen they poured across the border
I was cautioned to surrender,
this I could not do;
I took my gun and vanished.
I have changed my name so often,
I’ve lost my wife and children
but I have many friends,
and some of them are with me.

In 2009, I posted Best Video Performance Of The Partisan by Leonard Cohen, naming  the recording of that song from the 1988 Reykjavik show as my favorite. That video and, indeed, all the performance and interview videos from that concert have, however, been removed from YouTube (Update: An audio-only recording of the entire Reykjavik is now available on YouTube). Today’s post offers one in a series of candidates for Best Online Video Of The Partisan Performed By Leonard Cohen. This video was suggested by Linda-Lee Sturgess, who wrote “This video is not perfection – but a remarkable capture of Leonard ‘up close and personal.’”
