Leonard CohenSongs From A Room ... LP
Columbia, 1969. Very Good+ ... $19.99
The second album from Leonard Cohen – a more stripped down effort produced by Bob Johnston, with some really odd washes of sound on the outer edges of the sound – adding some slightly uneasy atmosphere that's paired masterfully with Cohen's moody pen. An album full of subtle triumphs, with a few of his more iconic songs and certainly in the upper regions of best work. Titles include the classic "Bird On The Wire", "Story of Isaac", "Seems So Long Ago, Nancy", "The Butcher", "You Know Who I Am", "Lady Midnight" and "Tonight Will Be Fine". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing. Cover has light wear & discoloration from age.)

✨✧ Leonard CohenPopular Problems ... CD
Columbia, 2014. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
The twilight renaissance of Leonard Cohen continues on Popular Problems – which joins the preceding Old Ideas album up on the top shelf with some of his best work of the past couple decades! The heaviness of the years in his voice is the album's second strongest element, after the inimitably phrased poetry of his lyricism – backed with angelic female backing vocals and spare instrumentation – led by keyboards, bass, light drums and guitar and some violin. Includes "Slow", "Almost Like The Blues", "Samson In New Orleans", "Did I Ever Love You", "Born In Chains", "You Got Me Singing", "A Street" and more. CD

✨✧ Leonard CohenSongs Of Leonard Cohen ... LP
Columbia, 1967. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
Leonard Cohen's debut for Columbia, one of the most astounding first albums of its era, and to this day a towering achievement in both songwriting and myth making! The production is that perfectly haunting mix of sparseness and grandeur, with Cohen's lyricism piercing and penetrating wonderfully – his voice never sounded better, and this is certainly one of the great "lightening in a bottle" efforts that was hard to top by Cohen or anyone else in the more poetic upper levels of pop music. Includes ""Suzanne", "Master Song", "Winter Lady", "The Stranger Song", "Sisters Of Mercy", "So Long, Marianne", "Hey, That's No Way To Say Goodbye", "Stories Of The Street", "Teachers" and "One Of Us Cannot Be Wrong". LP, Vinyl record album

✨✧ Leonard CohenSongs Of Love & Hate ... LP
Columbia, 1971. Used ... Temporarily Out Of Stock
One of the more heavily brooding albums ever cut by Leonard Cohen – and also one of the best – the iconic Songs Of Love And Hate from 1971! Cohen's aptly titled third LP, with the nice spare approach to production that most of his early work had, even more stripped down, with voice and acoustic guitar the focus, and some tasteful, more lush texture when the mood strikes – and oh so incredible wordplay and phrasing from the iconic maverick poet/songwriter. Classic bummers including "Avalanche", "Last Year's Man", "Dress Rehearsal Rag", "Diamonds In The Mine", "Love Calls You By Your Name", "Famous Blue Raincoat", "Sing Another Song, Boys" and "Joan Of Arc". LP, Vinyl record album
(70s pressing – with black inner sleeve, and small book! Cover has some light ringwear.)

✨✧ Leonard CohenYou Want It Darker (180 gram pressing) ... LP
Columbia, 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The cover's a bit chilling, given that the record was Leonard Cohen's last – and it almost makes us feel as if he's looking back on all of us, from the brightness of the great beyond! But even without that image, the album's got a vibe that really lives up to its title – impossible to consider in these days after Cohen's passing – which feels almost inevitable in the pacing and mood of the music, and the liner notes' explanation that he was in such pain during the recording of the set, that his son Adam had to work as the guiding force to bring all the music together. Cohen's often talking more than singing, but shifts easily between both modes – in a raspy voice that almost makes him feel as if he's taking a late-life turn towards a Serge Gainsbourg mode of presentation – even though his lyrical content is very much his own. The poetry of the man is still extremely powerful – and still a masterpiece in economy that so many other songwriters should heed – on titles that include "It Seemed The Better Day", "Steer Your Way", "Traveling Light", "If I Didn't Have Your Love", "You Want It Darker", "Treaty", and "Leaving The Table".

✨✧ Leonard CohenVarious Positions ... CD
Columbia, 1984. Used ... Out Of Stock
One of just a couple of albums by Leonard Cohen from the 80s – certainly an underappreciated one, in regard to his late 60s and early 70s canon – and that's a shame, because this is pretty brilliant stuff! Stylistically, there's sparse folk pop, some steel guitar twang and then modern production touches that can't mess it up, thanks to the weight and gravity of Cohen's own voice and the beautiful female backup. Titles include "The Night Comes On", "The Captain", "If It Be Your Will", "Dance Me To The End Of Love", "Coming Back To You" and "Hallelujah". CD

Liel LeibovitzBroken Hallelujah – Rock & Roll, Redemption, & The Life Of Leonard Cohen (hardcover) ... Book
WW Norton (UK), 2014. New Copy ... $4.99 25.95
The music of Leonard Cohen is often so personal, it feels like we know the man himself very intimately – but behind the songs, there's a lot more to Cohen's life and creative process – a good deal of which is presented in this book! Author Liel Leibovitz does a good job of getting past the monolithic figure in the spotlight, and really shows Cohen as a human being – one with struggles at the start, and a journey to faith in his own creations – followed by personal moments of decision that are reflected later in his music. The book never attempts to be completely comprehensive, but manages to illuminate some key corners of Cohen's career – and the book is 281 pages, hardcover, with some black and white images. Book

✨✧ Colin IrwinLeonard Cohen – Still The Man (hardcover) ... Book
Flametree (UK), 2015. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
The text inside may not be as thought-provoking as the lyrics of Leonard Cohen – but the images alongside are certainly worth the price of admission! The book features dozens of photographs of Cohen – from the early years onwards, some studio shots, some concert images, and many at a level that's different than the familiar, iconic images that circulate more often in the mainstream. There's certainly some text in the book – think of it as a "light" history of the man and his music – but the real draw is the photos, which are presented in brilliant black and white, for the 60s images and more artistic shots – and full color other photographs. Book is hardcover, and 128 pages in all. Book

William C BeeleyGallivantin ... LP
North Park/Tompkins Square, 1971. New Copy (reissue)... $18.99
A beautiful little set from the enigmatic William Beeley – a singer/songwriter who's very clearly influenced by the early work of Bob Dylan – but who has a sound that quickly takes off in his own direction! Beeley begins the set with a version of a Dylan tune, but then opens up into some very personal songs of his own – presented with just vocals and guitar, in an up-close, honest style that's somewhere in the territory of Tim Hardin or early Leonard Cohen – not that William's copping their approach, just that the songs are that good, we'd easily rank them in such heady company. And although the set was originally issued on a tiny Texas label, the sound is much more northeast overall – on titles that include "Summer Colored Skin", "Carol", "And Then I'll Be Gone", "Easter Sunday Song", "Weathered Lady", and the album's ten minute closer "Little Wheel Spin & Spin & Co'Dine".

Lynn CastleRose Colored Corner ... CD
Light In The Attic, 1966. New Copy ... $13.99 15.98
Never-heard sounds from Lynn Castle – a singer who was maybe more famous in 60s LA for her work as a hair stylist – even though she spent her free time turning out really beautiful songs like these! Castle only ever issued one 45 on Lee Hazlewood's label – but the work here is mostly from earlier demos she cut with legendary producer Jack Nitzsche – who wisely leaves Lynn to mostly stand out in the lead on vocals and guitar – which makes for music that's surprisingly dark-tinged overall, and quite different than you might expect from her sexy look on the cover! The vocals are often quite moody – almost in Nico territory, but more tuneful overall – and the songs are incredibly haunting, maybe along the lines of some of the Leonard Cohen material from the early days. Titles include "The Stranger", "The Puppet", "The Forest", "New York", "I'm Getting Tired", "She Thinks She Feels", "Rose Colored Corner", and "Lonesome Lookout". The set also includes both sides of Castle's only single on LHI – produced by Hazlewood, backed by Last Friday's Fire – and titled "The Lady Barber" and "Rose Colored Corner". CD

Pearls Before SwineOne Nation Underground (second cover) ... LP
ESP, 1967. Very Good+ Gatefold ... $34.99
The incredible debut from Pearls Before Swine – a group who were a bit late to the New York folk party of the 60s – but at a level that really helped them evolve past the rest of their scene! The album's sometimes a bit overlooked – as it came out on the mostly-jazz ESP label – but it's a mindblowing treasure from the year of 1967, and one of the most forward-thinking albums of the time! The group begin with folk constructions, but really take off quickly with some trippier elements too – especially when they mix organ, vibes, or electronics with more familiar guitar and mandolin. Singer Tom Rapp maybe has a slight touch of Dylan in his approach, but he's already up there as his own man – and we love Rapp so much, we'd place him in the same heady territory as Tim Buckley, Tim Hardin, or Leonard Cohen – all of whose work is a good match for the energy here. There's a wonderfully dark quality to this album that gives it a timeless feel – strains of avant instrumentation underneath the gentler sound of Rapp's voice, and an undying sadness that's matched by the feel of songs like "Another Time", "Playmate", "Drop Out", "Ballad To An Amber Lady", "Miss Morse", "I Shall Not Care", and "Morning Song".

✨✧ Al StewartOrange ... CD
Columbia (UK), 1972. Used ... $7.99
A surprisingly wonderful album from Al Stewart – recorded early in his career, with a very different sound than his later work! Al here is steeped in a tradition that stretches back a few years hence – to Dylan and Leonard Cohen – but which also includes elements of the jazz-based British sound of the time, stretching the songs out with some really lyrical flourishes, a perfect mate for Al's Dononvan-ish vocal style. The tracks are all pretty compelling – slightly poetic, with traces of Nick Drake-styled folkisms – and the album makes us wish we had a way to discover more of Al's work from the time! Titles include "Once An Orange Always An Orange", "Amsterdam", "You Don't Even Know Me", "The News From Spain", "Songs Out Of Clay", "Night Of The 4th Of May", and "I'm Falling". CD

VariousPhil Spector – Back To Mono 1958 to 1969 (4CD set) (NO XMAS CD) ... CD
Abkco, Late 50s/1960s. Used 4 CDs ... $9.99
The classic box set featuring so many of the biggest, best, and brightest pop, rock & soul singles of the late 50s and on through the 60s – those ubiquitous, but no less incredible productions from that crazy genius Phil Spector! Back To Mono features many of the best known numbers by the Ronettes, the Righteous Brothers, Darlene Love, the Checkmates, the Crystals and many more – all of it with the appropriately dubbed Wall Of Sound that made Phil Spector the most famous producer of all time! We'd love to see an addendum someday featuring a set of Spector's productions for those idiosyncratic superstars of the 70s (the Ramones, Leonard Cohen, the post-Beatles) – but as a snapshot of an era, this box can hardly be beaten! 60 tracks on the the main 3CDs in the set – plus a 4th CD featuring the classic Christmas Gift For You From Phil Spector album from 1963! Titles include "To Know Him Is To Love Him" by the Teddy Bears, "Spanish Harlem" by Ben E King, "I Love How You Love Me" by Paris Sisters, "He's A Rebel" by the Crystals, "(Today I Met) The Boy I'm Going To Marry" by Darlene Love, "Be My Baby" by the Ronettes, "Hold Me Tight" by the Treasures, "You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin'" by the Righteous Brothers, "River Deep Mountain High" by Ike & Tina, "Love Is All I Have To Give" by Checkmates and tons more – plus the immortal holiday disc featuring the Ronettes, Bob B Soxx & The Blue Jeans, Crystals, Darlene Love and more! All that, and a thick, nearly 100 page booklet! CD

✨✧ Meic StevensOutlander ... LP
Warner/Blank, 1970. New Copy (reissue)... Out Of Stock
Possibly the biggest album ever from Welsh singer Meic Stevens – but a set that's still pretty darn obscure, nonetheless! The album's all in English, and was recorded as a key outing for Warner – before Meic went back to his homeland, and went virtually underground. The style's quite unique, a raspy blend of folksy elements and some slight more sophisticated tones – echoes of Dylan and Leonard Cohen in some of the arrangements, but all abstracted nicely once Meic's unique vocals come into play. All tunes are Stevens originals, and are often quite personally poetic – and titles include "Dau Rhosyn Coch", "Ballad Of Old Joe Blind", "Ghost Town", "Midnight Comes", "Yorric", "Love Owed", and "Left Over Time".

Kama Sutra, 1967. Used ... Out Of Stock
Great work by one of the most compelling groups in the Kama Sutra bubble gum stable! Sopwith Camel always seemed a bit headier than their contemporaries – part Spanky & Our Gang type pop, part long-haired hipster rock – handled with some introspective touches that almost feel like Leonard Cohen at times. This early album's hard to describe, but it's a lost pop gem – and one of those west coast late 60s sides that make you realize that there was a heck of a lot of great music that got lost in the shuffle of the summer of love! Titles include "Walk In The Park", "Postcard From Jamaica", "Cellophane Woman", "Maybe In A Dream", "Saga Of The Low Down Let Down", "Hello Hello", and "Frantic Desolation". LP, Vinyl record album
