Hallelujah The Essential LC Album Collection

Post by drsing » Thu May 09, 2013 3:10 pm

I just bought an 8CD box, Sony 2009, made in the Netherlands. The box set has LC's eight first studio albums and also contains a booklet with a preface written by the Dutch musician Henk Hofstede (who is known to be a huge fan and covers Leonard Cohen songs with his Avalanche Quartet; currently touring in the Netherlands). The first three albums include the bonus tracks also included on the special editions issued in 2007.

There is virtually no information available about this 8 cd box set on the internet. Apart from a general line in almost every Wikipedia entry of the albums included in the box set, there is just one post from Dominique Boile on a French forum (http://www.leonardcohensite.com/forum/i ... 71.75;wap2). Also, if you google the box set's serial number, no information is available in any database at all.
Here are some pictures of this extraordinary Dutch box set.
