Winners and their Prizes:
The live album "Field Commander Cohen" signed by Leonard:
Barb Davis, Quebec, Canada, 14 pointsThe Warsaw 1985 concert:
Fiona Harrington, UK, 12 pointsWe got about 150 lists. Nobody except Barb gave correct title to song #1 (The War). Barb had a certain advantage: she had seen the paintings at the Art Exhibition in Calgary; that's why we gave out three FCC albums instead of two.The FCC CDs were kindly donated by Leonard and Kelley.
Seven contestants found 12 correct titles. The draw took place in a most neutral way in the Leonard Cohen Newsgroup on Feb 3. More than 20 others were able to name 11 songs. Thanks to all participants!
