Video

  • This is a really well made record - from the arrangements, to the playing and singing, to the engineering and mastering. Really gorgeous recording.

  • Great Tribute to Leonard Cohen featuring lost guitar great Stevie Ray Vaughn on "First We Take Manhattan" and Leonard Cohen himself in a vocal duet with Jennifer Warnes on "Joan Of Arc" and the lyric inner-sleeve even features a little drawing by Leonard Cohen with the words "Jenny Sings Lenny" as part of it!

    This original 1986 pressing is hard-to-find and great sounding.
