The audio recording of the first version of Chelsea Hotel - before it became Chelsea Hotel #2 - from Leonard Cohen's 1972 concert in Tel Aviv is complemented by images of Leonard Cohen, Janis Joplin (whose liaison with Cohen at the Chelsea Hotel led to the creation of the song), the Chelsea Hotel, and others.

Note: The video mistakenly lists the song as part of the April 20, 1972 Leonard Cohen concert in Jerusalem; it is actually from the April 19, 1972 concert in Tel Aviv.

Chelsea Hotel #1 is one of the tracks on The Other Leonard Cohen Album,a compilation of unreleased Leonard Cohen performances over a 30+ year period. Information about this collection, rated #24 On Uncut's Greatest Bootlegs, can be found at http://goo.gl/x0vESu
