Leonard Cohen 'Live Songs' LP
180 gram reissue with download card.
Live Songs was released in 1973; Cohen's fourth album was a collection of recordings made at a number of concerts in Europe between 1970 and 1973. The collection consists of songs from 1969's Songs From A Room, such as Bird On A Wire, Story of Isaak and a new version of Seems So Long Ago, Nancy (now simply dubbed Nancy), and a number of new songs. The epic climax is unmistakably the 13-minute Please Don't Pass Me By (A Disgrace), in which Cohen describes his personal descent into hell and oblivion. The song tormented Cohen to such a degree that he rarely sang it again. A beautiful collection of songs that shows Cohen in his most raw and vulnerable moments.
