Track 17 Recorded January 27, 1968 & Broadcast on BBC2 TV (”Once More With Felix”)

While Dylan was the transition point for protest music to move towards singer-songwriter, there were others too championing to focus on songs not politics. Canadian Leonard Cohen, with his brooding monotonous voice, was a talented poet who would never have won American Idol. But where he lacked a sweet voice, he made up for it with the intensity of his songs.

Together with younger artists Joni Mitchell, Laura Nyro and Paul Simon, singer-songwriters moved to make songwriting an art form. Their efforts were recognised when mainstream acts covered their songs. All this happened in the whirlpool that rock music was creating.

These well-preserved sessions at the BBC in 1968 offer a fly-on-the-wall experience to witness a young Cohen singing practically the entire first album. The voice is fresh and deep, pushing the songs outside the Tin Pan Alley perimeter, and delving into poetry with a richness of words and subject. Today, they still have that raw appeal of a young artist at the peak of his powers.

Suzanne, So Long Marianne and Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye are beautiful love songs without catchy hooks. They got your attention with words and the emotions in the song.

Tagged to this 1968 session are three songs from a Top Gear show hosted by John Peel. The final track is a duet with British folk singer Julie Felix on Hey, That’s No Way To Say Goodbye. The
quality on these four tracks are still very good.

GOOD, Rumpole!

I watched the documentary twice, may watch it again. ;)

I learned so much that gives new meaning to his work. Each album has its own history. There are a few of his songs I now want to study the lyrics. There are a few songs I will never listen to again.

Like I said, fascinating story.

Ladies and Gentlemen... Mr. Leonard Cohen

Quote:
Published on Jul 17, 2014
This informal black-and-white portrait of Leonard Cohen shows him at age 30 on a visit to his hometown of Montreal, where the poet, novelist and songwriter comes "to renew his neurotic affiliations." He reads his poetry to an enthusiastic crowd, strolls the streets of the city, relaxes in this three-dollar-a-night hotel room and even takes a bath.

Directed by Donald Brittain & Don Owen - 1965

This is a terrific short documentary. I can see an old soul in him at age 30. He hasn't quite got the "con game" going on at this time in his life, but you can see it developing. ;) The old films of his family was a favorite, and the bath scene. :D
