Been out a couple of years now. It's worth the price, very entertaining.

I've seen this concert and it's very good.   I remember the first time I heard the "Songs of Leonard Cohen" album way back in 68 or so.   The haunting voice and lyrics of Cohen were unlike anything I'd heard before.   When I learned to play guitar years later some of the first songs I learned were "Suzanne", "No Way to Say Goodbye",  "So Long Marriane", and "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong"...   all from that first LP.   Still later on, when I began to write some songs I can't deny that I was still greatly influenced by his lyric style.   Once, a few years ago, I wrote a song and while I was writing it I was hearing Leonard singing it in my head.   When I played and sang it for my daughter she commented that it was very "Cohen-esque".     That's when I really knew how much he had influenced my writing.
