I was trying to get hold of this 2 CD + DVD box for the last couple of years but it was not available on Amazon or elsewhere. Finally I bought the 2012 reissue. Note, however, that the original 2007 album and 2012 reissue are not the same.

The DVD contains a live concert recorded at Teatre Auditori, Sant Cugat del Vallès, Barcelona on January 13, 2007. The liner notes say that the material of the audio albums was recorded during 12, 13 and 14 January 2007. I understand that each day the cast of "Acordes Con Leonard Cohen" gave a full live performance. Apparently, two different non-redundant set of songs were chosen to fit two CDs. The 2007 audio version more or less matches the Sant Cugat del Vallès set, but the song order is different from that on the DVD. On the other hand, 2012 reissue contains bonus tracks which have nothing to do with Acordes concerts. For instance, Aleluya (Hallelujah) is taken from Yasmin Levy's Sentir -- a bit too over the top, really, it sounds out of place here. But all in all, it is a fascinating record. My favourite tracks are Impermeable azul (Famous Blue Raincoat) by Christina Rosenvinge, Baila conmigo (hasta el fin del amor) (Dance me to the end of love) by Perla Batalla, and Mi gitana (The gypsy's wife) by Duquende.

Most of the songs are in Spanish and most of the artists are spanish however anyone who likes Leonard Cohens work will enjoy hearing different versions of his songs. It is very good value 2 dvds and a cd so take the gamble and buy it.

This 2-CD 1 DVD set proves one more time how versatile is Leonard Cohen's music, whatever language and whichever genre treatment it is given.
The Who's Who cast of predominantly Latin artists, including Mr Cohen's own son Adam and partner Anjani, makes this the perfect extension to the English language concert equivalent "I'm Your Man" with Perla Batala providing the common artist link between these concerts. The support musicians on this Spanish tribute prove to be even stronger than those seen in the Australian tribute with members of Cohen's current backing band prominent amongst them, including the incomparable Javier Mass.
My highlight is hearing the full flamenco treatment given to The Gypsy by Duquende .... it seems so natural and "right". This blind-siding reading provides the same drop dead pivot point that Anthony's If It Be Your Will gives the English-language parallel.
Your Cohen collection needs both these tributes if only to prove to your doubting friends the solidity of The Master's music.
