DEATH OF A LADIES MAN (VINYL)

by Leonard Cohen
$34.95
Over the course of three weeks, Leonard Cohen and Phil Spector had written 15 new songs, a selection of which ended up on the 1977 album Death Of A Ladies' Man.
The brawling "Memories" bowls along like an echo-laden vaudeville drinking song. Meanwhile, "Iodine" swings on one of Nino Tempo's most seductive rhythm arrangements, and anybody looking for a dance could turn to "Don't Go Home With Your Hard-On", which not only captures an almost irresistible funk edge, but also roped Bob Dylan and Allen Ginsberg into its rambunctious backing chorus. Death Of A Ladies' Man represents the peak of Cohen's first decade as a recording artist, both lyrically and stylistically stepping into wholly untapped musical directions. Death Of A Ladies' Man might even be his masterpiece...

Leonard Cohen had gained fame as a poet and singer in the late 60's and continued his creative output successfully throughout the 70's. But when the 80's came along, things didn't go so smoothly. That is, until he drastically changed his sound with the 1988 album I'm Your Man. Synthesizers ruled, and a dark humour was added to his baritone. With enormous critical and commercial success, I'm Your Man is ranked amongst Cohen's best albums.

LIVE AT THE ISLE OF WIGHT 1970 (2LP)

by Leonard Cohen
$49.95
Over 40 summers ago on August 31, 1970, 35-year-old Leonard Cohen was awakened at 2 a.m. from a nap in his trailer and brought onstage to perform with his band at the 3rd annual Isle Of Wight music festival.  The audience of 600,000 was in a fiery and frenzied mood, after turning the festival into a political arena, trampling the fences, setting fire to structures and equipment and stoked by the most incendiary performance of Jimi Hendrix's career, less than three weeks before his death. As Cohen followed Hendrix's set, onlookers (and fellow festival headliners) Joan Baez, Kris Kristofferson, Judy Collins and others stood sidestage in awe as the Canadian folksinger-songwriter-poet-novelist quietly tamed the crowd. Take a listen and be amazed by this live recording.

Old Ideas (Vinyl)

by Leonard Cohen
$39.99

Old Ideas, Leonard Cohen's 2012 studio album, addresses some of the most profound quandaries of human existence - the relationship to a transcendent being, love, sexuality, loss and death. Arguably the most overtly spiritual of the revered artist's albums, “Old Ideas” inspires commitment to a greater sense of compassion and decency. The album was produced with Patrick Leonard, Anjani Thomas, Ed Sanders and Dino Soldo. Complementing Cohen's signature baritone on “Old Ideas” are the exceptional vocalists Dana Glover, Sharon Robinson, The Webb Sisters (Hattie and Charley Webb) and Jennifer Warnes. The album's cover design and drawings are Cohen's own.

Popular Problems is Cohen's 13th studio album, and will be released on September 26th , to celebrate his 80th birthday. In Popular Problems, his thrilling new studio album, Leonard Cohen gets down into the avenues of our dreams and sets a new tone and speed of hope and despair, grief and joy.  Cohen here is an astonished lover rocking to the human condition as "the soul unfolds in the chambers of its longing."  His legendary basso resonates as never before with a presence and urgency that arises from the very depths of the heart.  The clarity and strength of these nine hypnotic songs will have us singing them over and over.    In collaboration with co-writer Patrick Leonard, Popular Problems is a masterpiece from the ever-fresh imagination of a musical legend whose songs continue to captivate new listeners and devoted fans.   Popular Problems was produced by Patrick Leonard, mastered at Marcussen Mastering and was recorded and mixed by Jesse E. String with additional mixing by Bill Bottrell.

RECENT SONGS (VINYL)

by Leonard Cohen
$34.95
Recent Songs is the sixth studio album by Leonard Cohen, released in 1979. It was a return to Cohen's acoustic folk music after the Phil Spector experimentation of Death of a Ladies' Man, but now with many Jazz and Oriental influences.

Long-time Cohen collaborator Jennifer Warnes prominently appears in vocal tracks. Members of the band Passenger played on four of the songs and Garth Hudson of The Band also appeared on the album. "Came So Far for Beauty" seems to be an unaltered outtake from the unfinished 1975 album Songs for Rebecca, which also included early versions of "The Traitor" and "The Smokey Life" (then with music by John Lissauer). "Ballad of the Absent Mare"'s metaphoric lyrics are based on the twelfth-century Ten Bulls (or Ten Ox-herding Pictures). The song is covered by several artists, notably Emmylou Harris on the album Cowgirl's Prayer (as "Ballad of a Runaway Horse").

Songs from a Room is the second album by Leonard Cohen, released in 1969 and contains “Bird on the Wire”, one of Cohen's most famous songs.   Songs from a Room's strongest moments convey a naked intimacy and fearless emotional honesty that's every bit as powerful as the debut, and it left no doubt that Cohen was a major creative force in contemporary songwriting. The album was produced in Nashville with Bob Johnston.

TEN NEW SONGS (VINYL LP)

by Leonard Cohen
$34.95

During the 9 years prior to the release of Ten New Songs (2001) the legendary songwriter Leonard Cohen spent most of his time in a Zen monastery, obsessively rewriting and polishing the lyrics for this austere collection. Ten New Songs is arguably Sharon Robinson's record as much as Cohen's as she co-wrote all the songs, plays most of the instruments and accompanies Cohen's gloomy croak with her own crooning.

This is the most subdued album Cohen's ever made. It's as if he no longer has time for anything in music or performance that could alter the meaning and force of his words. Various artists have covered Cohen's songs off this album; Eric Burdon and Katie Melua both covered "My Secret Life" for their own albums, Jonathan Richman covered "Here It Is".

Leonard Cohen is indubitably one of the most legendary and successful singer-songwriters from the 60's. However, his label at first refused to release Various Positions, his seventh studio album, saying 'Look, Leonard; we know you're great, but we don't know if you're any good'.   The success of the album proved them wrong, giving us one of his most beloved and arguably his most covered song "Hallelujah", along other gems such as "Heart With No Companion" and the Gainsbourg-esque "Dance Me To The End Of Love".
