Video: The Pleasure Of Leonard Cohen’s Company At The 2013 Lucca Soundcheck

49 Seconds Of Felicity

Less than a minute long, Szilvia Szanto’s video of the end of the 2013 Leonard Cohen Lucca soundcheck includes

  • That great shot (atop this post) of a smiling music icon
  • Leonard Cohen telling the soundcheck viewers “Thanks for coming” and voicing his hope that he will see them at the concert that night while a smiling Mitch Watkins watches on
  • A confirmed sighting of the guy who carries Leonard Cohen’s guitar for the guy who carries Leonard Cohen’s guitar

  • A brief leave-taking between Leonard Cohen & Roscoe Beck
  • Sharon Robinson (heard, not seen) beginning Alexandra Leaving, creating a downright eerie moment starting at 0:30 when she sings “God of love preparing to depart” as Leonard, well, prepares to depart.

“God of love preparing to depart”
