Songs of Leonard Cohen is the debut album by Canadian folk singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen, released on December 27, 1967 on Columbia Records. Less successful in the US than in Europe, Songs of Leonard Cohen foreshadowed the kind of chart success Cohen would go on to achieve. It reached number 83 on the Billboard 200 and achieving gold status in the US only in 1989, but peaked at number 13 on the UK Albums Chart, and spent nearly a year and a half on it.

HOW TO PLAY "Songs Of Leonard Cohen".

Leonard Cohen's debut album, Songs of Leonard Cohen is special for a variety of reasons. First, it began the career of one of pop music's most enigmatic and enduring figures. Despite the fact that Cohen cannot sing in any manner related to words like melodious or harmonious, his unique brand of melancholia has not only been embraced, but has had an indelible impact on folk and other pop genres

At a time when a growing number of pop songwriters were embracing a more explicitly poetic approach in their lyrics, the 1967 debut album from Leonard Cohen introduced a songwriter who, rather than being inspired by "serious" literature, took up music after establishing himself as a published author and poet.

Songs of Leonard Cohen. The power of voice, melody and poetry, all struck clearly at the listener, with the subtlety and elegance that only the legendary Leonard Cohen could bring. An iconic work that relies solely on acoustic compositions fueled by the metaphysical lyrics and poems that stand out as you dive deeper into his themes.

Album · 1967 · 10 Songs. Released at the height of the hippie era, Leonard Cohen’s darkly complex debut sounded unlike anything else at the time. On Suzanne and Sisters of Mercy, the comes across like a man wandering the dimly lit alleyways between alienation and despair. But what shouldn’t be overlooked is the sheer beauty in Cohen’s vision. The way the harpsichord in Winter Lady dances across his leaden voice is one of those delicious little moments that help make the album so unforgettable. Songs of Leonard Cohen Leonard Cohen.
