Product Description & Reviews
He was already an established novelist and poet, but Leonard Cohen was not on the musical map until the heavenly voice of Judy Collins brought attention to his song Suzanne in '67. That was the start of a long, fruitful creative bond; here are 14 Cohen songs by Collins: Suzanne; Sisters of Mercy; Bird on the Wire; Joan of Arc; Song of Bernadette (rare live version); three new tracks, and more! Judy Collins met Leonard Cohen in 1966, at a time when the young Canadian was uncertain about his skills both as a songwriter and a singer. Collins responded powerfully to his music, assuring him that his performance and compositions were alluring and potent. She subsequently covered a number of his songs, and she even coaxed him onto the stage. This disc adds three new recordings to 11 of Collins's previous interpretations. Her crystal-clear vibrato is ideally suited to the slow melodic bearing that Cohen favors. From the country lilt of "Bird on a Wire" to the breathtaking and spare live rendition of "Song of Bernadette," Collins demonstrates why Cohen, more than any other songwriter she has covered, has been a constant presence in her repertoire for nearly 40 years. --David Greenberger
