I am dirty as a glass roof in a train station
I feel like an empty cast iron exhibition


A great Lenny live LP. This 1973 album is comprised of live recordings made in 1970 and 1972 in London, Brussels, Paris, Berlin, Isle Of Wight and Tennessee.

Cohen’s fourth album was released during the three-year silence between Songs of Love and Hate and New Skin for the Old Ceremony.

Live Songs is a live album, or, more accurately -and as the title suggests – a compilation of live recordings, performed mostly in Europe in 1970 and 1972. Cohen is backed by an excellent country-influenced group, which includes guitarist/ fiddler Charlie Daniels and vocalist “Jennifer Warren”, who would soon become famous as Jennifer Warnes who, amongst other things (some good solo stuff and some succesful stuff too – especially the “Up Where We Belong” movie tie-in single with Joe Cocker) became a renowned interpreter of Lenny’s songs.

The album consists mostly of reinterpretations (often with additional or significantly altered lyrics) of songs from Cohen’s second album, Songs From a Room.

For example, “Nancy” is a version of “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy”, and “Improvisation” is an extended instrumental guitar trio version of the vamp from “You Know Who I Am”, which is also featured.

Strangely, neither Songs of Leonard Cohen nor Songs of Love and Hate (which itself had featured a live track, “Let’s Sing Another Song, Boys”, culled from the same tour as the 1970 recordings here) are represented.

The other tracks are a cover of the folk standard “Passing Through”, and two new compositions: “Please Don’t Pass Me By (A Disgrace)” (a thirteen-minute singalong recorded in 1970) and “Minute Prologue”.

At the beginning of a Paris, France performance of “Bird on the Wire”, Cohen recites the first verse of a French translation of the song’s lyric.

A “bonus” track, the sublime “Queen Victoria”, was recorded by Cohen alone in his Tennessee hotel room in 1972. This was later covered wonderfully by the great John Cale!

Lenny must have had a thing for weird stoic right-wing German-Brit bitches! Guess he must’ve later loved Maggie Thatcher!

Queen Victoria,
My father and all his tobacco loved you,
I love you too in all your forms,
the slim unlovely virgin floating among German beards,
the mean governess of the huge pink maps,
the solitary mourner of a prince.

Queen Victoria,
I am cold and rainy,
I am dirty as a glass roof in a train station,
I feel like an empty cast iron exhibition,
I want ornaments on everything,
because my love, she gone with other boys.

Queen Victoria,
do you have a punishment under the white lace,
will you be short with her, make her read those little Bibles,
will you spank her with a mechanical corset.
I want her pure as power, I want her skin slightly musty with petticoats
will you wash the easy bidet out of her head?

Queen Victoria,
I’m not much nourished by modern love,
will you come into my life
with your sorrow and your black carriages,
And your perfect
memories.

Queen Victoria,
the Twentieth Century belongs to you and me.
Let us be two severe giants not less lonely for our partnership,
who discoloured test tubes in the halls of Science,
who turned up unwelcome at every World’s Fair,
heavy with proverb and correction
confusing the star-dazed tourists
with our incomparable sense of loss.

Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely (1958)

Frank Sinatra Sings For Only The Lonely
Released 1958
Recorded May 25-September 11, 1958 Capitol Studio A, Hollywood
Genre Vocal Jazz, Classic pop
Length 59:45
Label Capitol Records
Producer Voyle Gilmore

One of the definitive Sinatra collections! From back in the heyday of Frank’s wild years!

In fact one of Sinatra’s personal favourites!

Heartfelt songs sung from the heart. No bullshit or brouhaha!

Wonderful classically composed and structured songs wonderfully sung by the Chairman of the Board!

Seminal cover artwork too!

Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely (also known as Sings for Only the Lonely and simply Only the Lonely) was released in 1958.

Sinatra had planned to record this album with Gordon Jenkins, with whom he worked on Where Are You?, his previous all-ballads album.

However, since he was unavailable at the time of the sessions, Sinatra chose to work with Nelson Riddle, his original arranger at Capitol Records. A great fucking choice!

According to the book Sinatra: An American Classic, when asked at a New York party in the mid-1970s if he had a favorite album among his recordings, Sinatra unhesitatingly chose this one, For Only The Lonely!

One of several concept albums recorded by Sinatra in the 1950s, it is perhaps most notable as the most unambiguously bleak album of that decade.

There are no up-tempo numbers – in fact the only emotional lift is for the benefit of those who purchase the CD reissue, who are treated to an out-take of the Rodgers and Hart classic Where Or When, as well as a bonus take of “Sleep Warm“.

At the Grammy Awards of 1959 Frank Sinatra Sings for Only the Lonely was nominated for the Grammy Award for Album of the Year, and won the Grammy Award for Best Album Cover.

The jacket comes adorned with a clown portrait of Sinatra’s face; on the back of the album is another of Sinatra’s recurrent visual motifs, a lamppost.

Q placed this LP at #1 on the ’15 Greatest Stoner Albums of All Time’ .

Only the Lonely peaked at #1 on Billboard’s pop album chart during a 120 week chart-run.

Frank Sinatra Sings For Only the Lonely is a beautiful album of songs sung by the immortal Frank Sinatra. The voice is pure, the phrasing is perfect, and the pathos and passion in the lyrics are delivered as only Old Blue Eyes can. Nelson Riddle’s arrangements for this album are inspired. The sensitivity and flair with which he approaches each song, achieving a distinct and definitive interpretation of each one, is alone worth the price of this album.


-Sir Charlie Palmer

Leonard Cohen – Field Commander Cohen (2001)

Songs recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, on December 4,5,6, 1979; and at the Dome Theatre, Brighton, on December 15, 1979.

Sony Music Entertainment Inc Cat # CK66210


just some grateful, faithful woman’s favourite singing millionaire,
the patron saint of envy and the grocer of despair



Another great Lenny live collection! Twelve amazing tracks here beautifully performed!!

This documents the Field Commander Cohen Tour of 1979 and the songs were recorded live at the Hammersmith Odeon, London, on 4, 5, and December 6, 1979 and at the Dome Theatre, Brighton, on December 15, 1979.

Lenny said this was his best tour ever!

Accompanying Cohen was the great jazz band Passenger from Austin, Texas, consisting of members Steve Meador on drums, Roscoe Beck on bass, Mitch Watkins on guitar, Bill Ginn on keyboards and Paul Ostermayer on sax and flute.

Other tour members included violinist Raffi Hakopian, oudist John Bilezikjian, and wonderful singers Jennifer Warnes and Sharon Robinson.

A sense of fun (well, by Lenny’s standards anyway!) pervades the album, taking its lead from the hilarious title track.

Just look at the amazing tracklist! Add that to the amazing performers and perfect performances and you’ve got something pretty fucking special!!

This LP’s a real pleasure to listen to!

Leonard Cohen recorded his last studio album–The Future–in 1992, so Columbia Records can perhaps be forgiven for continuing to mine the master tapes of his old live performances. The songs here are collected from two 1979 concerts at London’s Hammersmith Odeon and Brighton’s Dome Theatre.

At that time, Cohen was touring in the wake of his Phil Spector-produced Death of a Ladies’ Man album and was, to judge by the performances collected here, in fine form. His voice had not quite plummeted to the crockery-rattling depths captured on I’m Your Man (indeed, on “Memories”, he positively yelps), and the backing band, including Jennifer Warnes on backing vocals, is terrific throughout. The songs, of course, are impeccable, including “Lover Lover Lover,” “Bird on the Wire,” “So Long, Marianne,” and “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye.”

Field Commander Cohen, he was our most important spy:
wounded in the line of duty;
parachuting acid into diplomatic cocktail parties;
urging Fidel Castro to abandon fields and castles;
leave it all, and like a man,
came back to nothing special
such as waiting rooms and ticket lines,
silver bullet suicides,
and messianic ocean tides,
and racial roller-coaster rides,
and other forms of boredom advertised as poetry.

I know you need your sleep now.
I know your life’s been hard,
But many men are falling,
where you promised to stand guard.

I never asked but I heard that you cast your lot along with the poor;
that you be this and nothing more
than just some grateful, faithful woman’s favourite singing millionaire,
the patron saint of envy and the grocer of despair,
working for the Yankee dollar.
Drinkin´ rum and Coca-Cola. Go down Point Koomahnah.
Both mother and daughter. Working for the Yankee dollar.

I know you need your sleep now.
I know your life’s been hard,
But many men are falling,
where you promised to stand guard.

Lover, come and lie with me, if my lover is who you really are.
And be your sweetest self a while, until I ask for more, my child.
Then let the other selves be rung; let them manifest and come,
`til love is pierced and love is hung
and every taste is on the tongue,
and every kind of freedom done, then
oh my love, oh my love, oh my love

Leonard Cohen – New Skin for the Old Ceremony (1974)



Album : New Skin for the Old Ceremony
Artist : Leonard Cohen
Release Date : 1995
Original Release Date : 1974
Lable : Sony
Number of Discs : 1
Total time : 00:37:06
Total size : 51,1 MB
@ 192 Kbit/s mp3


Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.


A neglected Lenny classic from 1974. Eleven amazing tracks here. Beautiful timeless songs!

This was Cohen’s fourth studio album and here he seems to evolve away from the rawer sound of his earlier albums, with violas, mandolins, banjos, guitars, percussion and other instruments giving the album a more orchestrated – but nevertheless spare – sound.

In concert, a prolonged “I Tried to Leave You” has often been used to introduce Lenny’s band. The 14-minute rendition from the 1985 Montreux Jazz Festival even featured extra lines given to the backup singers.

“Who by Fire” explicitly relates to Cohen’s Jewish roots, echoing the words of the Unetanneh Tokef prayer and sung as a duet with Janis Ian (also Jewish; her birth name was Janis Eddy Fink).

“Who by Fire” was covered by great Brit indie band The House of Love on I’m Your Fan. It was also covered by British experimental band Coil, on their landmark album Horse Rotorvator, featuring Marc Almond on lead vocals.

“Leaving Green Sleeves” is a reworking of the 15th-century folk song “Greensleeves”. Cohen retains the chord progression and the words of the first two verses, but changes the melody and takes the latter verses in a different direction than the original.

//upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/en/1/1a/New_Skin_for_the_Old_Ceremony.jpg” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.

The original cover art for New Skin for the Old Ceremony was an image from the alchemical text Rosarium philosophorum. The two winged and crowned beings in sexual embrace, caused his U.S. record label, Columbia Records to print one early edition of the album minus the image substituting instead a photo of Cohen!

The image originally came to public attention in C.G.Jung’s essay, The Psychology of The Transference (2nd ed.1966) where it is held by Jung to depict the union of psychic opposites in the consciousness of the enlightened saint. The sexual embrace as a symbol for this condition of psychic unity is also found frequently in Tibetan thangkas (sacred paintings).

Of course this LP contains one of Lenny’s best – certainly best known – songs, “Chelsea Hotel #2“!

There was an earlier version of this track called Chelsea Hotel #1“!

This however was only performed live and we already posted this fascinating earlier version on a great Lenny boot from Tel Aviv in 72.

“Chelsea Hotel #2” refers to a sexual encounter in the Chelsea Hotel, probably New York City’s most famous Bohemian hostelry.

But who was giving head on the unmade bed??

For some years, when performing this song live, Cohen would tell a story that made it clear that the person he was singing about was Janis Joplin. In a 1994 broadcast on the BBC, Cohen described that as “an indiscretion for which I’m very sorry, and if there is some way of apologising to the ghost, I want to apologise now, for having committed that indiscretion.”

Lloyd Cole covered the song on the Cohen tribute album I’m Your Fan, and Rufus Wainwright performed the song at the 2006 live tribute, Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man. Regina Spektor has also covered the song in live performances.

Cohen’s former bandleader and guitarist Ron Cornelius says he co-wrote “Chelsea Hotel #2” with Cohen during an eight-hour airplane trip. Cornelius is listed as co-writer in the BMI database but not with the U.S. Copyright Office or on any Cohen record (until the release of the Leonard Cohen: I’m Your Man soundtrack in July 2006).

According to Cornelius, the song was re-copyrighted as #2 in order to leave him out of the credits. He hired a music attorney and was paid $8,500 for not pursuing the case. Following the discussion about Cornelius’s claims, Cohen and Cornelius met in March 2006 after twenty years. “His memory is better than mine. From now on, let it be known we wrote Chelsea Hotel together”, Cohen wrote to Leonard Cohen Forum.

I remember you
well in the Chelsea Hotel,
you were talking so brave and so sweet,
giving me head on the unmade bed,
while the limousines wait in the street.
Those were the reasons and that was New York,
we were running for the money and the flesh.
And that was called love for the workers in song
probably still is for those of them left.

Ah but you got away, didn’t you babe,
you just turned your back on the crowd,
you got away, I never once heard you say,
I need you, I don’t need you,
I need you, I don’t need you
and all of that jiving around.

I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel
you were famous, your heart was a legend.
You told me again you preferred handsome men
but for me you would make an exception.
And clenching your fist for the ones like us
who are oppressed by the figures of beauty,
you fixed yourself, you said, “Well never mind,
we are ugly but we have the music.”

And then you got away, didn’t you babe…

I don’t mean to suggest that I loved you the best,
I can’t keep track of each fallen robin.
I remember you well in the Chelsea Hotel,
that’s all, I don’t even think of you that often.

Leonard Cohen – Songs of Love and Hate (1971)

Album : Songs of Love and Hate
Artist : Leonard Cohen
Release Date : 1995
Original Release Date : 1971
Lable : Sony
Number of Discs : 1

You’re living for nothing now,
I hope you’re keeping some kind of record.


Lenny’s greatest album, the classic Love and Hate from 1971. One of the greatest albums of all time!

Eight seminal tracks here. Beautiful timeless songs! Pure poetry.

This was mainly recorded in Columbia Studios, Nashville, from September 22 to 26, 1970. “Sing Another Song, Boys” was recorded at the Isle of Wight Festival on August 30, 1970. Further recording took place at Trident Studios in London. The album reached #145 on the Billboard list, but was his most commercially successful album in many other parts of the world, reaching #4 in the UK and #8 in Australia.

This is a sort of concept album – using the best meaning of that term! As it was originally designed to be listened to on vinyl record, there is a “hate” side and a “love” side, rather than necessarily being just sides 1 and 2!

Interestingly too, each song seems to have a corresponding counterpart! For example, “Avalanche” and “Love Calls You by Your Name” are stylistically very similar, with familiar structures to each other. The same holds true for all the other songs (“Joan of Arc” to “Last Year’s Man”, “Diamonds in the Mine” to “Sing Another Song, Boys”).


The back cover of the album bears the lines:

They locked up a man
Who wanted to rule the world
The fools
They locked up the wrong man

This LP was ranked 74 on Pitchfork Media’s list of the 100 best albums of the 1970s. Only 74? Fuck off!

The songs are raw and emotive and often frankly personal – especially the wonderful “Famous Blue Raincoat” which tells of a kind of complex “Jules et Jim” threesome involving a chick called Jane, and which ends with the great line “Sincerely, L. Cohen”.

“Famous Blue Raincoat” has been covered numerous times, most notably by Jennifer Warnes, who had earlier toured as a back-up singer for Cohen, on her 1987 tribute album to Cohen, Famous Blue Raincoat. It has also been covered by Tori Amos on the Leonard Cohen tribute album Tower of Song.

by Michelle?


It’s four in the morning, the end of December
I’m writing you now just to see if you’re better
New York is cold, but I like where I’m living
There’s music on Clinton Street all through the evening.

I hear that you’re building your little house deep in the desert
You’re living for nothing now, I hope you’re keeping some kind of record.

Yes, and Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear
Did you ever go clear?

Ah, the last time we saw you you looked so much older
Your famous blue raincoat was torn at the shoulder
You’d been to the station to meet every train
And you came home without Lili Marlene

And you treated my woman to a flake of your life
And when she came back she was nobody’s wife.

Well I see you there with the rose in your teeth
One more thin gypsy thief
Well I see Jane’s awake —

She sends her regards.

And what can I tell you my brother, my killer
What can I possibly say?
I guess that I miss you, I guess I forgive you
I’m glad you stood in my way.

If you ever come by here, for Jane or for me
Your enemy is sleeping, and his woman is free.

Yes, and thanks, for the trouble you took from her eyes
I thought it was there for good so I never tried.

And Jane came by with a lock of your hair
She said that you gave it to her
That night that you planned to go clear —

Sincerely, L. Cohen

Leonard Cohen – Songs From a Room


Album : Songs From a Room
Artist : Leonard Cohen

In the House of Mystery, there was no one at all.
There was no one at all.


Another Lenny classic. His second LP from 1969. Ten amazing tracks here. Beautiful timeless songs! Pure poetry.

Although some thought this a disappointment after his debut album (Songs of Leonard Cohen), initially it did better commercially, reaching #63 on the Billboard list and #2 at UK charts.

Cohen reportedly said he chose producer Bob Johnston to achieve the spartan sound he considered appropriate for his songs, after the disputes he had with John Simon during the mixing sessions of Songs of Leonard Cohen.

The album also features some prominent (if strictly ornamental) Jew’s harp. The album’s sound is thus closer to the archetype (or stereotype) of an “early” Leonard Cohen record.

In sheet music for the album, a song titled “Priests” was included, and although reportedly recorded, it didn’t appear on the actual LP or any other Cohen record. The song was recorded by Judy Collins on her 1967 album Wildflowers, and by Richie Havens on his 1969 album Richard P. Havens, 1983.

The famous “Bird on the Wire”, described by Cohen as a simple country song, has been covered by many people including his one-time backup singer Jennifer Warnes, by The Neville Brothers (on the soundtrack for the abysmal Mel whackjob Gibson, 1990 film Bird on a Wire), by Willie Nelson (on the Cohen tribute album Tower of Song) and even by the great Johnny Cash (for his 1994 album American I: American Recordings). It also appeared on the earlier tribute I’m Your Fan, covered by the rather good Brit indie group The Lilac Time.

“Story of Isaac” is based on the Old Testament myth of Yahweh’s demand that Isaac be sacrificed by his father Abraham. It ends with an admonishment to fathers to no longer sacrifice their sons. Judy Collins‘ 1968 recording, which predated Cohen’s, features slightly different lyrics. Suzanne Vega performed the song on the Tower of Song album.

“The Partisan” is based on the poem “La complainte du partisan” by “Bernard” (Emmanuel D’Astier), a prominent figure in the French resistance during World War II.

The beautiful, classic dark track “Seems So Long Ago, Nancy” tells the story of Nancy Challies, a depressed young woman from Montreal, who committed suicide having been being forced by her family to put her son up for adoption. However, in 1979 Cohen – probably with typical Lenny disingenuity! – told the filmmaker Harry Rasky that “Nancy” was only a waitress in an American juke joint with whom he had been slightly acquainted.

It seems so long ago,
Nancy was alone,
looking at the Late Late show
through a semi-precious stone.
In the House of Honesty
her father was on trial,
in the House of Mystery
there was no one at all,
there was no one at all.

It seems so long ago,
none of us were strong;
Nancy wore green stockings
and she slept with everyone.
She never said she’d wait for us
although she was alone,
I think she fell in love for us
in nineteen sixty one,
in nineteen sixty one.

It seems so long ago,
Nancy was alone,
a forty five beside her head,
an open telephone.
We told her she was beautiful,
we told her she was free
but none of us would meet her in
the House of Mystery,
the House of Mystery.

And now you look around you,
see her everywhere,
many use her body,
many comb her hair.
In the hollow of the night
when you are cold and numb
you hear her talking freely then,
she’s happy that you’ve come,
she’s happy that you’ve come.

Amazon.com essential recording

“I choose the rooms that I live in with care / The windows are small and the walls almost bare,” Leonard Cohen sings in a particularly telling couplet in “Tonight Will Be Fine,” one of the highlights in this aptly titled album from 1969. The Canadian poet-performer’s sophomore release has the sub rosa feel of an attic hideaway, thanks in part to Bob Johnston’s restrained production. Cohen’s near-monotone vocals are suitable for conveying his finely honed, meditative musings but–at this stage in his development–not much else.

Johnston’s soundscapes aren’t as beguiling as the ones John Simon created for Cohen’s superior debut, Songs of Leonard Cohen, though lovely orchestral shadings flatter such Cohen classics as the oft-covered “Bird on the Wire” and “Story of Isaac.” Songs from a Room is only a secondary effort when it’s stacked up against its consummate predecessor, But by any other measurement, it’s an exceptionally literate and enigmatic recording by a true original.

Leonard Cohen – Songs of Leonard Cohen

And you know that she will trust you
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind.

A Lenny classic from 1968. Ten amazing tracks here. Beautiful timeless songs! Pure poetry.

One of the greatest debut LPs of all time!

Totally out of synch with the overbloated vacuous flower-power music of the times, this came out of left-field like an exocet missile!

Songs of Leonard Cohen was, of course, too different, too dark, for mainstream taste to be a commercial success, but it was widely acclaimed by folk music buffs.

Cohen quickly became a cult name in the UK, where this album spent over a year on the album charts.

https://i0.wp.com/www.soundtrackcollector.com/images/cd/large/McCabe_Mrs_Miller_CBS7684.jpg
Three of the album’s songs, “Winter Lady,” “The Stranger Song,” and “Sisters of Mercy,” were used in the great 1971 Robert Altman film McCabe & Mrs. Miller. This is a beautifully off-kilter western starring the notorious Warren Beatty and the delicious Julie Christie (man, we do love the young Julie!!) – check it out!
Cohen and John Simon, producer and musical director, managed to give the album a distinct sound while also relying on typical sixties effects such as instruments panning from channel to channel.

Although Cohen was granted much freedom in the recording process, they did not always agree on how the record should be mixed. Finally, Simon departed for his Christmas holiday and left the final mix to the artist himself.

In a 2001 interview Cohen told British music magazine Mojo: “We did have a falling out over the song “Suzanne.” He wanted a heavy piano syncopated and maybe drums and I didn’t want drums on any of my songs, so that was a bone of contention.”

How fucking right Lenny was! How right! What a seminal track!

“Suzanne”, which begins and ends as an ode to a “half-crazy” woman capable of personal connection, contains an unconventional discussion of Jesus in the second verse – And Jesus was a sailor w hen he walked upon the water etc ….. – which has been removed in at least one cover of the song.

The sublime “Suzanne” was ranked number 41 on Pitchfork Media’s ‘Top 200 Songs of the 1960s’! Only 41? Wake the fuck up, bozos!!

Suzanne takes you down to her place near the river
You can hear the boats go by
You can spend the night beside her
And you know that she’s half crazy
But that’s why you want to be there
And she feeds you tea and oranges
That come all the way from China
And just when you mean to tell her
That you have no love to give her
Then she gets you on her wavelength
And she lets the river answer
That you’ve always been her lover
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that she will trust you
For you’ve touched her perfect body with your mind.
And Jesus was a sailor
When he walked upon the water
And he spent a long time watching
From his lonely wooden tower
And when he knew for certain
Only drowning men could see him
He said “All men will be sailors then
Until the sea shall free them”
But he himself was broken
Long before the sky would open
Forsaken, almost human
He sank beneath your wisdom like a stone
And you want to travel with him
And you want to travel blind
And you think maybe you’ll trust him
For he’s touched your perfect body with his mind.

Now Suzanne takes your hand
And she leads you to the river
She is wearing rags and feathers
From Salvation Army counters
And the sun pours down like honey
On our lady of the harbour
And she shows you where to look
Among the garbage and the flowers
There are heroes in the seaweed
There are children in the morning
They are leaning out for love
And they will lean that way forever
While Suzanne holds the mirror
And you want to travel with her
And you want to travel blind
And you know that you can trust her
For she’s touched your perfect body with her mind.

Amazon.com essential recording

Time has been extraordinarily kind to Songs of Leonard Cohen. While it attracted considerable fanfare upon its release in 1968, not everyone was immediately captured by its dusky charms. Randy Newman, for one, couldn’t resist the temptation to parody “Suzanne,” the album’s brooding opener, on his 12 Songs album. (Conversely, director Robert Altman brilliantly drew upon the dirges here for the soundtrack to his classic anti-western, McCabe and Mrs. Miller.)

But what some once found to be pretentious and affected has come to feel penetrating and ageless. Seeded with what have become signature songs of the Canadian wordsmith (“Sisters of Mercy,” “Hey, That’s No Way to Say Goodbye,” “So Long, Marianne”), the album has a narcotic quality that owes as much to producer/musical director John Simon’s inspired folk-baroque soundscapes as to Cohen’s lofty lyrics and earth-bound vocals.

https://i0.wp.com/www.leonardcohenfiles.com/tns-cover.jpg
A wonderful, beautiful poetic track from Sharon, co written with the maestro Leonard Cohen from her wonderful recent album Everybody Knows.

This track originally appeared on Lenny’s Ten New Songs LP.


Here’s a nice piece where Leonard Cohen shares his thoughts on
his recording of Alexandra Leaving:

Suddenly the night has grown colder.
The god of love preparing to depart.
Alexandra hoisted on his shoulder,
They slip between the sentries of the heart.

Upheld by the simplicities of pleasure,
They gain the light, they formlessly entwine;
And radiant beyond your widest measure
They fall among the voices and the wine.

It’s not a trick, your senses all deceiving,
A fitful dream, the morning will exhaust –
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost.

Even though she sleeps upon your satin;
Even though she wakes you with a kiss.
Do not say the moment was imagined;
Do not stoop to strategies like this.

As someone long prepared for this to happen,
Go firmly to the window. Drink it in.
Exquisite music. Alexandra laughing.
Your firm commitments tangible again.

And you who had the honor of her evening,
And by the honor had your own restored –
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving;
Alexandra leaving with her lord.

Even though she sleeps upon your satin;
Even though she wakes you with a kiss.
Do not say the moment was imagined;
Do not stoop to strategies like this.

As someone long prepared for the occasion;
In full command of every plan you wrecked –
Do not choose a coward’s explanation
that hides behind the cause and the effect.

And you who were bewildered by a meaning;
Whose code was broken, crucifix uncrossed –
Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost.

Say goodbye to Alexandra leaving.
Then say goodbye to Alexandra lost.

(based on The God Abandons Antony,
a poem by Constantine P. Cavafy)

Leonard Cohen – Death Of A Ladies’ Man [1977]

Leonard Cohen – Death Of A Ladies’ Man [1977]
Mp3@192kbps / 61Mb / RS
Released November 1977 (CD 1990)
Recorded June /July 1977
Genre Folk-Rock
Length 42:34
Label Columbia Records
Producer Phil Spector

The walls of this hotel are paper-thin
Last night I heard you making love to him
The struggle mouth to mouth and limb to limb
The grunt of unity when he came in

Another record that needs to be defended against the mauling dealt out by herds of rabid critic sheep!


A wrongly maligned Lenny album, Death Of A Ladies’ Man has, despite the odds, stood the test of time and is a marvelous piece of work!

This, despite the sometimes heavy handed production by Phil Spector and the fact that Spector took over the album completely in the latter stages of recording and excluded Cohen entirely from the process!

Whackjob Phil Spector was famous back in the day for his Wall of Sound recording technique. Now he is famous as an accused murderer!

No, Spector (or maybe, Spectre!) has not been accused in courts of murdering this LP … in fact, it was an unfortunate human lady!

At the time, this work was much abused by the critic sheep, but was, strangely, much lauded by many great bands from the punk world, some of whose work was influenced by it! Lenny spoke about this phenomenon, as well as speaking well of this album, in the “I’m your Man” tribute movie released a couple of years back.

Although appearing at first glance lighter than Cohen’s earlier works – Songs of Love and Hate, for example – here too is a world of characters, who are existentially and spiritually troubled, who are trying to find solace somewhere in a world of emptiness, betrayal and disappointment.

However, rather than using a dress rehearsal rag, here is a world where fucking and other bodily pleasures represent a source of release. Of course, ultimately, a futile one.

Yes, there is a real preoccupation across this album with the carnal! Even moreso than is normal in Cohen’s work!

Perhaps this reflects the unique place and time in which the work was created – Los Angeles in the mid to late seventies – where Cohen would have unavoidably found himself surrounded by a showbiz world full of sex, coke and alcohol excess. A world of emptiness. A world filled with vacuous souls trying to find solace in simple excess in a window of time when cash was flowing freely, when vestiges of hippy “free love” remained, before the consequences of substance abuse were fully clear, and before the advent of the spectre of AIDS.

Now the master of this landscape he was standing at the view
with a sparrow of St. Francis that he was preaching to
She beckoned to the sentry of his high religious mood
She said, “I’ll make a place between my legs,
I’ll show you solitude.”

Of course, poetic, witty wordsmithery is the order of the day with lots of wonderfully juxtaposed imagery in classic Lenny fashion, often meshing and counterpointing the sacred and the profane.


I pinned an Iron Cross to my lapel

I walked up to the tallest and the blondest girl
I said, Look, you don’t know me now but very soon you will
So won’t you let me see
I said “won’t you let me see”
I said “won’t you let me see
Your naked body?”

Death of a Ladies’ Man was Lenny’s fifth LP and it was a surprise to fans when it was announced that the minimalist Cohen would experiment with Spector’s famous Wall of Sound!

Lenny and Spector worked on the songwriting together. It seemed to have been a creative and fruitful period working together and some 15 songs were written over a course of three weeks.

However, the working relationship would soon take a twist into the surreal and bizarre!

Apparently, before Cohen had completed his vocals, Spector barred him from the studio – supposedly under armed guard – and mixed the final album by himself.

The finished album was then released by Warner Bros (it would later be picked up by Cohen’s label, Columbia Records.)

Spector described the final album as “some great fuckin’ music“!

Not everyone agreed with this assessment! Especially the herd of critic sheep! The standard argument was that the more varied jazz, rock and even funk style arrangements resulted in the album being inferior to Cohen’s earlier acoustic music.

But it is this very style that helps define this album and makes it stand out in many ways from Cohen’s other great works. The musical style seems to synch well with the underlying thematic obsessions of the album.

Indeed, it could be said that the album was in many senses ahead of its time. This is borne out in the fact that it still sounds fresh and different even today!

Across the album, there is also the sense of risks being taken, of experimentation, of excitement.

https://i1.wp.com/img149.imageshack.us/img149/6384/1998floorbiggergo4.jpg

And critically, beneath whatever musical style is cast upon Cohen’s lyrics, his words always stand out as nuggets of pure timeless poetry.

Leonard is without doubt the greatest lyrical writer in modern music, in terms of poetic perfection, and this is shown once again across this album.

We do love Lenny and we really love this album!

Some trivia;

  • Bob Dylan and muse Allen Ginsberg sang backup vocals on the chorus of “Don’t Go Home with Your Hard-on”!
  • Death of a Ladies’ Man was recorded in Los Angeles, California.
  • Cohen published the book “Death of a Lady’s Man” in 1978.

Leonard Cohen / Sharon Robinson – Everybody Knows

Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful, give or take a night or two
A classic track, co-written by Leonard Cohen and Sharon Robinson, in a performance from Lenny’s current World Tour.

Sharon Robinson appears in the clip as part of Lenny’s magnificent backing band.

Everybody Knows is the title track of Sharon’s great new solo album. Read about it HERE

Everybody knows that the dice are loaded
Everybody rolls with their fingers crossed
Everybody knows that the war is over
Everybody knows the good guys lost
Everybody knows the fight was fixed
The poor stay poor, the rich get rich
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows
Everybody knows that the boat is leaking
Everybody knows that the captain lied
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

Everybody talking to their pockets
Everybody wants a box of chocolates
And a long stem rose
Everybody knows

Everybody knows that you love me baby
Everybody knows that you really do
Everybody knows that you’ve been faithful
Ah give or take a night or two
Everybody knows you’ve been discreet
But there were so many people you just had to meet
Without your clothes
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

And everybody knows that it’s now or never
Everybody knows that it’s me or you
And everybody knows that you live forever
Ah when you’ve done a line or two
Everybody knows the deal is rotten
Old Black Joe’s still pickin’ cotton
For your ribbons and bows
And everybody knows

And everybody knows that the Plague is coming
Everybody knows that it’s moving fast
Everybody knows that the naked man and woman
Are just a shining artifact of the past
Everybody knows the scene is dead
But there’s gonna be a meter on your bed
That will disclose
What everybody knows

And everybody knows that you’re in trouble
Everybody knows what you’ve been through
From the bloody cross on top of Calvary
To the beach of Malibu
Everybody knows it’s coming apart
Take one last look at this Sacred Heart
Before it blows
And everybody knows

Everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Oh everybody knows, everybody knows
That’s how it goes
Everybody knows

Everybody knows

Sharon Robinson – Everybody Knows
July 2008 – Jazz / Contemporary
Everybody got this broken feeling
Like their father or their dog just died

I’ve been enjoying this great LP from Sharon Robinson for the past week or so. It’s a real summer delight!

Robinson has for many years been well known in the music scene as a songwriter, musician, singer and producer. Her songs have been covered by a wide array of well known artists and she has performed with some giants of modern music. Just look at her profile at the end of this post to see the extent of her work!

//www.leonardcohen.com/images/ph_videos.gif” cannot be displayed, because it contains errors.Sharon is probably best known though for her work with the one of the greatest song craftsmen of all time, King Leonard Cohen!

She has co-written some great songs with Lenny (including all the tracks on 2001’s Ten New Songs), produced one Lenny album (Ten New Songs), appeared on a number of different Lenny albums, and is currently part of Lenny’s wonderful tour band.

Three of the tracks on this LP are co-written with Cohen – Everybody Knows, Alexandra Leaving and Summertime.

These three tracks are majestic pieces of songwriting. The seminal title track Everybody Knows, was originally recorded by Lenny on his majestic ‘comeback” album “I’m Your Man” while Alexandra Leaving was recorded on “Ten New Songs”.

Nice piece where Leonard Cohen shares his thoughts on his recording of Alexandra Leaving:

Leonard Cohen on "Alexandra Leaving" Alexandra Leaving
(3 min. 41 sec.)
HI | LO [Windows Media]

However, the least known of these three joint-written tracks, Summertime, a supremely beautiful and haunting song is, for me, not only the highlight of this album, but one of the most beautiful songs I’ve heard in a long time.

This sublime track was written while they were on the road together during the 1979 “Field Commander Cohen Tour” and was subsequently recorded by both Diana Ross and Roberta Flack.

In this new album, Robinson is proudly stepping out of the great man’s shadow and with a series of wonderful tracks, taking giant steps towards creating her own artistic legacy.

Sharon’s own songs are of exceptionally high quality too and show that she’s learned much during her years with the great master.
At their best, her songs bear the Lenny hallmarks of exquisite wordplay, wit and craftsmanship, strong intelligent lyrics overlaying suitably apposite and beautiful melody. This reaches its apotheosis on great tracks such as Invisible Tattoo and Party for the Lonely.

And let’s not forget Sharon’s beautiful singing voice and idiosyncratic singing style! She sure can belt em out a tad better than Lenny! She’s also a very accomplished, classically trained musician!

All in all, this album is a refreshingly wonderful collection, a pure joy. It’s a must have for all true music fans, let alone fans of the great Leonard Cohen!

My CD player is almost worn out from playing this album! Check it out now mofos!

Extracts from reviews;

“A Phenomenal Project!” … “Robinson’s intelligent lyrics, excellent production andriveting alto voice define the word “compelling” to my ear.”

Carol Archer, Smooth Jazz Editor, R&R

“Invisible Tattoo,” is the new album’s signature track and one of the finest adult pop songs of 2008.” ….. “And in a market that is deathly short on intelligent, high quality adult pop music, Everybody Knows is an auspicious, welcome first offering by a talented artist whose time in the sun has thankfully arrived.”

Chris Rizik, SoulTracks

“A Knockout!…The best I’ve heard in a long time.” .. “Beautiful songs, great arrangements and a super voice.”

Alex Allan, Nevis Radio, Scotland

Review from http://www.soultracks.com/

It seems odd that Sharon Robinson is classified as a “new artist,” but after two notable decades in the music business, she is finally letting the world discover what music insiders have known for years. Though she’s spent the most time as a supporting vocalist for artists ranging from Stevie Nicks to Aaron Neville, Robinson is best known in the industry as a Grammy-nominated songwriter, having collaborated for several years with legendary lyricist Leonard Cohen. Similar to Gordon Chambers’ transition five years ago, Robinson is now moving to the forefront to display her formidable skills with 2008’s Everybody Knows.

The most obvious and expected influence on Everybody Knows is Cohen, whose 2001 album Ten New Songs was produced by Robinson. But perhaps even more powerful a comparison is to another former Robinson accomplice, Brenda Russell, especially on “Invisible Tattoo,” the new album’s signature track and one of the finest adult pop songs of 2008. Hinting at the vibe of Russell’s “Piano In the Dark,” but with Robinson’s smoky alto voice floating over a deep groove reminiscent of Sade’s best work, the cut is mesmerizing, and sets a high opening bar for the album.

The rest of Everybody Knows is immensely interesting, though perhaps too consistently downbeat for most listeners. Rich, occasionally oblique lyricism pervades the ten moody, ambient pieces, providing a sense of gravitas that is atypical for modern adult soul music. The mood works best on the title cut and on the beautiful Aaron Neville-like track, “The High Road,” a chilling song about a sad-but-resigned lover attempting to maintain her dignity at the end of a relationship.

The compelling lyrical content takes the disc a long way, nearly making it essential. But the album is dragged down by an overall sameness in tempo and Robinson’s attractive but unchangingly breathy vocals, making it impossible to sustain for the entire CD the enthusiasm brought by the opening cuts. While any of the ten cuts is worthy on its own (put your iPod on shuffle for this one), each loses impact when all are joined together, back to back, over an hour. But despite the lack of sonic variety, it is tough to find fault with the consistent strong material that graces it the album. And in a market that is deathly short on intelligent, high quality adult pop music, Everybody Knows is an auspicious, welcome first offering by a talented artist whose time in the sun has thankfully arrived. Recommended.

Leonard Cohen & Webb Sisters – Tower of Song, at Glastonbury 08

The King of Song sings Tower of Song on the Main Stage (Pyramid Stage, Glastonbury) on Sunday 29th June 2008.

From NME:

Glastonbury says ‘Hallelujah’ to Leonard Cohen



http://www.nme.com/news/leonard-cohen/37738

Veteran singer/songwriter Leonard Cohen inspired a Glastonbury ‘moment’ when he played his legendary song ‘Hallelujah’ during his Pyramid Stage slot at Glastonbury tonight (June 29).

As the sun set, the 73 year-old performed the song which originally appeared on his 1984 album ‘Various Positions’, and gained a new lease of life when Jeff Buckley covered it on his acclaimed 1994 album ‘Grace’.

The star started the song just as the sun was setting, and further delighted the massive crowd when he changed the lyric “I told the truth, I didn’t come here to fool ya” to “I told the truth, I didn’t come to Glastonbury to fool ya”. The crowd sang every chorus with Cohen, and gave him a massive ovation at the end, when he took a bow.

Cohen played many of his most famous songs, including ‘Who By Fire’, ‘Suzanne’ and ‘So Long, Marianne’, after which he said the crowd: “It’s a great honour to play before these angels born of the mud.”

The Canadian legend finished his set with ‘First We Take Manhattan’, before getting a huge ovation from his legion of fans.

The set was:

‘Dance Me To The End Of Love’
‘The Future’
‘Ain’t No Cure For Love’
‘Bird On A Wire’
‘Everybody Knows’
‘Who By Fire’
‘Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye’
‘So Long, Marianne’
‘Tower Of Song’
‘Suzanne’
‘Hallelujah’
‘Democracy’
‘I’m Your Man’
‘Closing Time’
‘Anthem’
‘First We Take Manhattan’
