Album Remarks & Appraisals:
Songwriter. Poet. Counter-culture icon. Consummate ladies' man. Leonard Cohen is one of the most original and enduring artists to emerge from the 1960s. Director Lian Lunson's critically acclaimed new film, Leonard Cohen: I'm Your Man is an intimate look at the songs, poetry and life of one of music's most celebrated and influential troubadours. The film and the soundtrack CD feature powerful live performances of Cohen masterpieces by an impressive array of today's top singer-songwriters from the historic Came So Far for Beauty tribute concerts produced by Hal Willner.
