How I Got My Song, Leonard Cohen’s Prince Of Asturias Award Speech (October 21, 2011)

How I Got My Song, Leonard Cohen‘s speech at the Oct 21, 2011 Prince of Asturias Awards is already available on video uploads, all of which suffer from overdubbing in Spanish that sometimes obscures Cohen’s words. In this version, however, all but the first 2-3 minutes of the talk are played from an audio tape with no overdubbing. While that portion of the tape contains ambient noise and some volume and pitch fluctuations, it is significantly easier to understand.
