SPECIAL THANKS TO:
JIM DEVLIN, who kindly gave his permission about this catalogue. Without him this site wouldn't exist. His work was truly an inspiration for me to create this website and share informations about Cohen concerts and recordings. 99% of the informations listed here is the result of his work, published in the book Is This What You Wanted.
ADI HEINDL, who sent me a copy of Schinzel's & Lohse's book, and have done a first compilation of most of the setlists so it was much easier for me to fill up the HTML setlists form.
GERHARD SCHINZEL, for sharing his knowledge.
ROBIN TARRY, who sent me a copy of Devlin's book and has located many recordings. Thanks for your generosity.
