30 Songs, 2 Hours 59 Minutes

EDITORS’ NOTES

At 30 songs and three hours, Live in Dublin presents an entire Leonard Cohen concert from start to end to multiple encores. Recorded on Sept. 12, 2013, at Dublin’s 02 Arena during Cohen’s sold-out 2012-13 world tour, the concert features Cohen presenting songs from his then-recent album Old Ideas, alongside his ever-growing catalog of modern-day standards. At 80, the singer performs with a seductive power that’s as tough as Iggy Pop and more sensual than Lana Del Rey. Cohen uses his slow, deliberate, poetic sense—and a tough-sounding band—to bring reinforced life to every favorite.

Looking Forward to This

The track list reveals a live performance of an excellent collection of Cohen’s legacy, both past songs and more recent additions to his library. I’m particularly looking forward to some of the songs that weren’t included on Live in London (Famous Blue Raincoat, Alexandra Leaving, The Partisan). One thing that I do hope that iTunes / Leonard Cohen will decide to do is to make the Concert Film, also due to be released on December 2, available in HD on iTunes. Cohen is a truly marvelous stage performer, one of the last truly classy musicians. You can see his live for Music (with a capital “M”) in the way he performs and interacts with humility with the audience. What a marvelous entry that would be, especially now that Cohen’s back catalog has been Mastered for iTunes.

The One

If I were forced to choose one Cohen album this would be it. High praise indeed. Never get tired of it, amazing!

Mr.

What a great performance! Hopefully, the next Leonard Cohen’s next CD will be a collection of his Blues songs… Leonard Cohen Blues.
