Leonard Cohen - Sisters Of Mercy

A fine, fine track off Leonard Cohen’s debut album ‘Songs of Leonard Cohen’. Much covered and apparently John Peel’s favourite song of all time. Then again, he said that about ‘Teenage Kicks’ by The Undertones, didn’t he? 7 more words

Gordon Lightfoot - Early Morning Rain

Love this bloke… just about everything he’s done, particularly his ’60’s output which is invariably flawless.
