Leonard Cohen’s Consummate Performance Of The Gypsy’s Wife, Featuring Javier Mas & Dino Soldo – Granada 2009

And where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?
Too early for the rainbow, too early for the dove
These are the final days, this is the darkness, this is the flood
And there is no man or woman who can’t be touched
But you who come between them will be judged
And where, where is my Gypsy wife tonight?


Featuring Javier Mas & Dino Soldo

While the 2009 Granada concert has been criticized for poor acoustics and impaired view from any seats beyond the first few rows of the venue (a bull ring), and for the talking and shouting from the audience throughout the performance, it did produce this outstanding video of The Gypsy’s Wife. Worthy of special note are the featured performances by Javier Mas & Dino Soldo and the distinctly atypical sounding of the gong by Rafael Gayol at the end of the song.
