Record(dvd) Of The Year – Bird On A Wire

Here’s Leap In The Dark’s review of my favorite record (well, dvd) of the year – Tony Palmer’s long-lost documentary of Leonard Cohen’s 1972 European tour Bird On A Wire. An honorable mention  goes to Leonard’s other 70’s concert film  Live at the Isle of Wight 1970, Leonard’s complete Isle of Wight set filmed by Murray Lerner who also directed Message to Love the must-see movie of 1970’s Isle of Wight Festival featuring Jimi Hendrix, The Who, The Doors, Joni Mitchell, Kris Kristofferson, The Moody Blues, Free, ELP and many others.
