Leonard Cohen - Field Commander Cohen (Tour of 1979) (2nd Hand CD)
The songs here are collected from two 1979 concerts at London's Hammersmith Odeon and Brighton's Dome Theatre.
At that time, Cohen was touring in the wake of his Phil Spector produced Death Of A Ladies Man album and was, to judge by the performances collected here, on fine form.
His voice had not quite plummeted to the crockery-rattling depths captured on I'm Your Man (indeed, on "Memories", he positively yelps), and the backing band, including Jennifer Warnes on backing vocals, are terrific throughout.
