Description

The Lyrics Of Leonard Cohen is a collection of over 100 song lyrics by the legendary songwriter.

When his first album made him an unlikely star in the late 1960's, Leonard Cohen was hailed as the new poet of song. His melodies were hauntingly melodic but his lyrics were like no one else's - poignant, romantic, mystical and darkly comic.

Already a poet and novelist, Cohen had found another calling in song... The Songs Of Leonard Cohen, Songs From A Room and Songs Of Love And Hate were the titles of his first three albums.

Eight more would follow over the next 40 years and now, in this collectors' edition, can be found the lyrics to over 100 of those classic songs, many of them now recorded by new generations of singers that include U2, John Cale, Nick Cave, Rufus Wainwright and Teddy Thompson.

This unique collection demonstrates why.
