I've been a Cohen fan as far back as I can remember. I had a feeling I wouldn't be disappointed by this album, since Cohen's live backup singers are legendary, and I was right. These are without a doubt the most beautiful and emotional versions of the songs ever recorded, and I find it impossible to listen to the album as mere background music; as soon as the music starts playing, I can't help but close my eyes and just let the music envelop me completely.
The songs "Bird on a Wire" and "Sisters of Mercy" are worthy of special mention. The tempo is lower, the saxophone sexier and the vocals deeper and more intense than ever before, and the result defies description. I would have gladly paid in blood to be at the show where they were recorded.
I heartily recommend this album to all, it is beyond fantastic.

With all of the current "X-Factor" interest in a particular song now seems as good a time as any to review this CD. I hope the show will encourage people to look more deeply into the work of the man who wrote the song..

I first heard Leonard Cohen courtesy of a girlfriend's sister about a year after his first album was released. It's therefore fair to say I've been a fan for a good while...

Live albums are often a disappointment - this one isn't.. Over an hour of sublime performances, beautifully recorded at various venues with some of the best backing musicians anywhere..

The track "If It Be Your Will" alone is worth the absurd £2.98 being asked here. As a bonus you get about 10 others and a much more honest version of "Halleluja" than the one we're hearing a lot at present...

I'm not usually a fan of live albums. They often contain little more than badly recorded, inferior versions of tracks you probably already own. So this live collection comes as a welcome exception to the rule.
Simply put, this album is stunning. It contains many of Leonard Cohen's best loved songs, all played to perfection by world-class musicians and recorded with pin-drop clarity. The songs were recorded on various tours during the 80s and early 90s but the album hangs together as if they were all recorded on the same night.
Particularly effective are the understated but arresting guitars, and the backing vocals providing a silky counterpoint to Cohen's world-weary tones.
This was the album that introduced me to Leonard Cohen and I have to say, I haven't found a better version of any of these songs anywhere. This is, for me, the best live album ever made, and one of my all time top five albums, period.

We were very, very happy with this CD. Cohen live is even better than in the studio. We would wholeheartedly recommend it - to fans and non-fans alike.

I think this is one of the nicer collections of songs from this genius ... He sounds as if he is enjoying the concert and this comes over to the audience who are also clearly enjoying each and every song/poem ... He is a one off,unique and secure in his artistic talent ... Listen to him and you will understand why he has such a huge fan base. ... All his music is great,you can purchase anything he has released play it and be enveloped in it ... A 5 star lifetime shared with us through his music.

Format: Audio CD
Although this is a compilation and the songs are all live and it was made in the 1980's(which usually means poor sound and dodgy keyboards) this is my favourite CD of all time. The songs on here are all classic Cohen songs - beautiful music and backing vocals with cohens voice lyrically speaking the words to his own composition. For me cohen's voice improved with age and more emotion is in every word of these songs then in earlier studio recordings of the same works - the arrangements for the songs on this album is superior in most cases to the originals and the delivery of the lyrics is superb. I saw Cohen live in Birmingham a couple of years ago and even though he is knocking on a bit now his voice has barely altered from the time of this recording in the 1980's and if you get the chance he is a definate must see. If you are a Cohen fan and you don't have this - buy it - it is a must have CD and even if you already have the songs on the original albums (I do as well) they sound better here.

I was not previously familiar with Cohen's work, I had only heard that his songs were gloomy and almost suicidal. I was pleasantly surprised on hearing this album - terrific musicianship throughout, lovely backing vocals and haunting lyrics. Its just so great when you unearth a gem like this - like discovering treasure buried in full sight. As someone said in another review - he is doing stuff which is different from anything else!

Great album, I could listen to Cohen's voice all day. I've got quite a few of the tracks on other c.d.s but he sounds fantastic live.
