2009 two CD set from the acclaimed singer/songwriter, recorded during his 2008 world tour. For over four decades, Leonard Cohen has been one of the most important and influential songwriters of our time, a figure whose body of work achieves greater depths of mystery and meaning as time goes on. His songs have set a virtually unmatched standard in their seriousness and range.

This is clearly a seminal collection of his work to date. I’ve been a fan ever since “Suzanne” took me down to touch her perfect body with my mind.
