A Veritable Cohen Love-in!

The Live in London DVD (Columbia) from 2008, ten short years ago:

Dance Me to the End of Love
The Future
Ain’t No Cure for Love
Bird on the Wire
Everybody Knows
In My Secret Life
Who By Fire
Hey That’s No Way to Say Goodbye
Tower of Song
The Gypsy’s Wife
Boogie Street
I’m Your Man
Take This Waltz
So Long Marianne
First We Take Manhattan
Sisters of Mercy
If It Be Your Will
Closing Time
I Tried to Leave You

All delivered by a true witty gentleman with honest self-deprecating humor. (No performer has ever talked this way or will again.) The band outstanding; numerous solos; great players and singers.

And then there’ are all the fine songs from his huge catalogue he did not do!

Chelsea Hotel #2
The Partisan
Going Home
Famous Blue Raincoat
Dress Rehearsal Rag
A Thousand Kisses Deep
Diamonds in the Mine
The Stranger Song
Winter Lady
You Know Who I Am
Jazz Police
Diamonds in the Mine
Story of Isaac
Alexandra Leaving
Joan of Arc
By the Rivers Dark
Here It Is

Canada’s greatest contribution ever to the world of songwriting and one-man live performing. We shall not know his like again. Unquestionably, our best poet ever.
