Excellent Cover Versions, 7 May 2007
I have been a fan of Leonard Cohen for nearly 40 years, having been introduced to his music by a fellow student at university.
I have most (possibly all)of his songs on various albums, but was still a bit hesitant about purchasing this album. I decided to listen to short (30 seconds) samples. After just hearing the first few (about four, I think it was), I immediately ordered the album.
There has has hardly been a day when it has not been played - and usually several times at that. My personal favourites are Antony's "If it be Your Will", and Martha Wainwright's "The Traitor". In fact, my least liked track (relatively speaking) is Leonard's only appearance on the album, joining Bono in "The Tower of Song".
Buy this album - I don't think you will be disappointed.
