Leonard Cohen fans, you can now listen to the Canadian poet-singer-songwriter’s music ’til the end of time.
Legacy Recordings is releasing a massive, 17-CD set encompassing the brooding baritone’s entire recorded output, including several live albums.
“Leonard Cohen: The Complete Studio Albums Collection” includes recent remastered CDs of all of his records in mini-LP replica packaging. Among the highlights is Cohen’s landmark debut “Songs of Leonard Cohen,” “Songs of Love and Hate,” and his later “Various Positions,” which included his well-known song “Hallelujah,” famously covered by Jeff Buckley and, previously, John Cale. Three recently released live sets will also be included.
The hefty set will also come with a 36-page booklet with photos and brand new liner notes, discographical annotations and recording information.
Cohen, who embarked on several acclaimed tours of the U.S. and Europe in 2009 and 2010, turned 77 this week. He has no upcoming dates scheduled.
