5.0 out of 5 stars Exceptional Moments From the Road Jan. 9 2011
By Richard S. Warner TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Mr. Cohen has indeed been a very busy man the past couple of years, touring almost ceaselessly to finally put a finishing coda on to a great and illustrious career. No more live concert tours from now on I've come to understand. Last year's magnificent performance DVD "Live in London", was probably the grandest and most fitting summation of a great musical legacy. It is a totally riveting and compelling performance with a decades-spanning roster of Cohen's greatest work. The accompanying CD was an impressive collection comprised of the same songs done at that single performance in London. One would think that that's all one really needs for a Leonard Cohen live swan song. Yet in 2010 Columbia/Sony released "Songs from the Road".

The point of difference with this release is revealed in the liner notes to this CD. Cohen's Producer, Ed Sanders, had kept a very detailed record of songs that Cohen himself had remarked on at the end of several shows on his long tours. If the performance of a particular song during the night's concert had struck Cohen as having been exceptional and noteworthy, Sanders made a note of it. He also recorded WHY those particular performances stood out in Cohen's mind. As time and tours went on the collection of noteworthy performances, exceptional moments, and distinctly special events in location and audience response amassed to a collection that was deemed worthy of organization and release. Hence, "Songs from the Road". One listen to this CD and you can clearly see why all these moments were deemed special.

Some of the songs selected bear the big 'of course', pieces like "Suzanne", "Bird on a Wire" and "Hallelujah" but there are others that really stand out as well.

5.0 out of 5 stars Absolutely terrific! Jan. 3 2013
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This is a terrific CD, featuring the best of Cohen's 2010 world tour. The arrangements are spectacular, and the quality of the recording almost makes you feel like you're there. "Heart with No Companion" and "The Patriot" are amazing.

5.0 out of 5 stars Songs to really listen to. Jan. 20 2012
By Karla
Format:Audio CD
It takes the right mood, to really appriciate Leonard Cohens poetry and songs.
I do not mix them with other kind of music, just a Leonard Cohen evening and hoping not to get disturbed by a telephonecall. Pure bliss. Karla
