Leonard Cohen's Isle of Wight DVD Looks Amazing

I have been a huge, huge fan of Leonard Cohen for a long time. For my money, there is nobody whose music sounds better when you are up really, really late at night, sitting alone in the dark. The man and his music mean alot to me.

Maybe it is due to my recent pilgrimage to The Chelsea Hotel in NYC, but I am on a huge LC kick of late. I've been playing his Phil Specter produced masterpiece/mess Death of A Ladies' Man nonstop. It's a beautiful cacophony of noise, with some of the darkest lyrics ever written wrapped in a loud, voices haphazardly overlapping, party atmosphere record.

Anyway, his Live at the Isle of Wight 1970 DVD/CD came out recently. Above is the trailer, and it does look amazing. If anyone wants to get this for me, that would be awesome!

Check it out when you can.
