Editors’ Notes

In his mid-70s, Leonard Cohen has attained the status of elder statesman and plays the part perfectly, speaking and singing in unmatched eloquent verse and stage banter, graciously thanking his audience for keeping his songs alive and then bringing them to brilliant execution as only Leonard Cohen can. This recording from London’s 02 Arena in July 2008 spans Cohen’s entire career from his initial liftoff with the now standards “Suzanne” and “Bird On the Wire” through his later celebrated work, including the much-covered “Hallelujah,” “Everybody Knows,” “Democracy,” and “First We Take Manhattan.” With a celebrated chorus of supporting singers, a sensitive yet quite active backing band of ambitious guitars, and percolating keyboards, Cohen explores his entire canon with reverence and good humor. The audience returns the favor, cheering wildly when he sings of his “golden voice,” in acknowledgement that no singer has done more with a limited range. If anything, Cohen’s voice has improved with age, the deepening of his lowest range adding an ominous, foreboding darkness to these songs of personal struggle and spiritual grace. 

Customer Reviews

Ain't No Cure for Cohen

I heard this album and got goosebumps. Cohen is an original and a treasure, his intricate words and melodies pull you into his world and a part of you stays there. Leonard Cohen's work is like sung paintings, so dense with meaning you can almost touch them and see the colors on the canvases, amazingly carried by musical notes that only he can sing. If you like Cohen you'll love this album.

Perfect Cohen

Everything from the cover to the mastering to the performance is just perfect Cohen. A great collection of favorites mixed with an entertaining stage presence that is the next best thing to being there. A must have for Cohenphiles.

Good Stuff

Leonard Cohen's music has always been a big part of my youth and adulthood. and over the years of listening to these songs in the studio form hundreds of times, now to hear them live in this 27 song concert is a tremendous treat. this is the best $15.00 you could spend on ITunes. the poet from Toronto. This is a 5 star gem. highly recommended.

One of the most fascinating and enigmatic — if not the most successful — singer/songwriters of the late '60s, Leonard Cohen has retained an audience across five decades of music-making interrupted by various digressions into personal and creative exploration, all of which have only added to the mystique surrounding him. Second only to Bob Dylan (and perhaps Paul Simon), he commands the attention of critics and younger musicians more firmly than any other musical figure from the '60s who...
