5.0 out of 5 stars A VERY SPECIAL AND REWARDING SET INDEED., 17 Jun 2009
This review is from: Live In London (Audio CD)
Many years ago CBS records produced a budget priced sampler,it contained artists such as Simon and Garfunkel,Mike Bloomfield and Taj Mahal,all unknown then.Among this treasuse trove was one Leonard Cohen.His one track got me buying the LP(remember them ?).It was stunning,for me the first acoustic troubador,playing,singing and writing such sensitive and wonderful music.Learning many of the songs on it,I played them in various venues for a time.So here we are many years later and the maestro plays the O2 in one of the most touching and wonderful concert sets for many years.The classics are there (yep the ones I played way back) and they sound as fresh as ever.The band throughout are superb.Thers some newer songs,songs I never realised he wrote or sang (including In My Secret Life which Eric Burden covered a couple of years back).This set is as they say a keeper,one that will be played over and over again.This is quite simply timeless music with lyrics we wish we could all write.This is the words and music of his life and he's sharing it with us.What's so great about this release is you drawn in by his stage manner as if your the only one there, that this is an intimate concert he's sharing with each one of us.Time may have moved on from what I heard on that old sampler,but the music is as fresh as ever and an absolute joy to listen to.You know I believe this is a classic live set that will be available for many,many years for millions to go on enjoying.
