Standout longplayers

17 October 2022

There are already so many Leonard Cohen tribute albums around, so who needs another one? Not me. But now that I listened to this new one, baptized HERE IT IS: A TRIBUTE TO LEONARD COHEN and released via the iconic jazz label Blue Note (in business since 1939) I’m glad it’s here. Why? It’s simple, most of the performances by this casr of celebrities are supreme. Check these 3 standouts I picked

‘You Want It Darker’ by IGGY POP
The Title track of Cohen’s final Lp – 2016

From Cohen’s 2001 album Ten New Songs.
It also inspired the title of this tribute compil.
