THE SCATTERED SONGS

Postby Roy » Sun Mar 01, 2009 3:27 pm

THIS THREAD IS ABOUT SONGS THAT LEONARD COHEN PERFORMED ON OTHER MUSICIANS ALBUMS

I wish SONY would release a CD like this for Leonard!

If I owned an independent record label I would get the rights and pay for all the previously released, studio recorded songs that Leonard Cohen lent his voice to on other musicians albums and put them all together on one CD. The booklet would include all the lyrics and credits, with the names of each one of the original ablums that each song came from, plus the stories behind each song and how Leonard got involved with each one of them. I would also add Never Any Good and The Great Event to this CD because they were the only new songs that were included on the More Best Of cd, which was an odd place for them. This collection (for the most part) is strictly for songs that Leonard Cohen performed on other musicians albums. I've made an exception for Do I Have To Dance All Night because it's the only official Leonard Cohen release that's only available on vinyl and has not been released on CD yet.

Here is the Leonard Cohen Files page on this topic:

Another scenario would be to make it a 2 CD set. The 2nd CD would be just for the Book of Longing tracks that Leonard Cohen lent his voice to. This would make room on the first cd for any other songs that Leonard Cohen lends his voice to on other musicians albums in the future, if any!
