Leonard Cohen – The Complete Studio Albums Collection (2011) 11CD [16-44]

By Request: A limited guitar player at best, and with a voice that hardly spans a couple of octaves, Leonard Cohen has nonetheless fashioned a legacy of gorgeously realized songs that reach deep into the heart of lust, ill- and well-fated romance, hope, and redemption, and if he doesn’t sing like an angel, he could certainly mesmerize one with the melody, lilt, and power of his songs. This set collects all of his albums, 11 of them, released between 1968 and 2004, including Songs of Leonard Cohen (1968), Songs from a Room (1969), Songs of Love and Hate (1971), New Skin for the Old Ceremony (1974), Death of a Ladies’ Man (1977), Recent Songs (1979), Various Positions (1984), I’m Your Man (1988), The Future (1992), Ten New Songs (2001), and Dear Heather (2004). It’s a tremendous legacy, full of poetry and hard-earned truth, and this is a nice way to get to the heart of all of it with one purchase.
