The Essential Leonard Cohen

Packaged today as "bookend " posts, we have another Leonard Cohen collection, this one generously sent our way by John N......quite obviously, we've been going through a bit of a Cohen phase 'round here, even before his passing, witness Brian's masterful covers project, as well as some of the live submissions, the spoken word issue, obviously now is perfect time to tribute the man with this collection, some of his best stuff, may he rest in piece, he had a talent that VERY few of us posses, and will truly be missed......the best thing we can ALL do is listen to these discs, appreciate the genius, and go on with life, I guess, BUT if anyone has anymore Cohen material, please......this is the time to submit it......Thanks to John N for this one, and for everyone else who has taken notice of his passing and contributed to this blog.

He certainly will be missed.

  2. I was very Sad to hear of the passing of Leonard Cohen, I first heard Sisters of Mercy in 1968 & fell for his music, Now he has departed & Gone but his music will live on. R,I,P, Leonard.


  3. Wish 2016 would just fuck off. Just heard that Leon Russell has passed too!
    What a year - all we need now is bubonic plague before December 31st to put the icing on the cake.
    Great blog though... :-)

  4. How can the good ones ever really be gone.

    1. I agree......I know I will always have Hendrix, cobain, bowie, Keith moon and 500 others, they reside in my collection and always will
