Leonard Cohen, Greatest Hits, live on FM radio

When Leonard Cohen passed away in 2016, aged 82, it became clear that he’d been sent to enlighten us and that a very bright light had gone out. The timeless nature of Cohen’s songs can be found in the space of 20 years that separate the enigmatic recordings presented here. Such unblemished maturity highlights his unique gift for poetry and song that is greatly evident in this set. From the most intimate of sessions held in London in 1968, where a small audience embraced highlights from his previous year’s debut to his 1988 renaissance with, I’m Your Man and an exquisite show in his native Canada to support it. The element of sophistication, charm and almost spiritual melancholy is captured here in abundance, on stage, and in a 20-year career gap that evokes nothing short of ‘grace’ personified.

Get Yer Vinyl Out invites you to do just that, with this stunning collection of hits, performed live across 20 years of spellbinding narrative. Superb, professionally remastered original broadcasts from London to Toronto in 1968 and 1988 respectively. Includes background liners and timeline photos.
