Synopsis

Album Description
By the time Leonard Cohen began his recording career in 1967, the iconoclastic Canadian troubadour was already well established as a poet and author. He quickly emerged as one of the era's most original and influential singer-songwriters, building a large and legendary body of work that continues to inspire artists and listeners alike. Much of Cohen's reputation and mystique was established by his early work for Columbia Records, particularly the five albums he recorded between 1967 and 1974. Now, these five classic albums, unavailable on vinyl for two decades, have been lovingly restored to their original LP format. For their new Sundazed editions, all five albums have been meticulously remastered and have been sourced from the original Columbia Records stereo masters in order to preserve the sound of the original albums. In keeping with the exacting standards for which Sundazed has become known, each album will be pressed on high-definition vinyl, with complete original cover art. Cohen's sophomore effort Songs from a Room (recorded with producer Bob Johnston, renowned for his work with Bob Dylan, Johnny Cash, the Byrds and Simon and Garfunkel) was a worthy follow-up, boasting such enduring compositions as "Bird on the Wire," "Story of Isaac" and "A Bunch of Lonesome Heros."

It feels hard for me to say this..

(3 out of 5 stars)

"but i dont get this album,the songs are not as good as his first and "songs of love and hate", 3 stars from me because,it's an uneven record,and that makes it hard to listen to,it sound's like some songs are 10 years older then others. best songs: Story of issac,lady midnight and tonight will be fine."
