Cohen, Leonard – I’m Your Fan – Vinyl 2LP 180gr
Leonard Cohen - Tribute – I’m Your Fan: The Songs Of Leonard Cohen By…
The album features Cohen’s songs interpreted by some of the most respected Rock acts of the time.
Its name is a play on the title of Cohen’s album I’m Your Man.
The album includes two different covers of “Tower of Song”, one by Robert Forster and another by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds.
The latter version is a radical deconstruction of the song, edited from an hour-long jam session held by the band.
Of particular interest are R.E.M.’s “First We’ll Take Manhattan” and The Pixies’ “I Can’t Forget.”
