New Cohen Live CD (Long Description)
Unified Heart Touring Company (“UHTC”), Leonard’s touring company, produced 387 concerts performed on Leonard’s 2008-2013 world tour and recorded both audio and video of each of those concerts in full. Ed Sanders, one of Leonard’s recording engineers, directed the live video feed for every concert and assisted in the audio and video recording process for these concerts.
In celebration of Leonard’s legacy, UHTC has graciously licensed 14 never-before released recordings from the world tour for a CD available only through UHPF, where all proceeds are for charity. Ed Sanders has curated the song selection and engineered this unique recording.
The CD mirrors the songs in the same order as the songs on the Tower of Song full concert Blu-Ray also included in this Box Set. Among these rare recordings is Leonard’s stunning performance of “Hallelujah” from Leonard’s first and only appearance at the renowned Glastonbury festival in 2008. The UK’s Telegraph crowned Leonard’s 2008 appearance at Glastonbury first among the 100 best performances at the festival. The CD also takes you to Montreal for Leonard’s performance of “Suzanne,” to Edmonton for the story of the “Sisters of Mercy” and to Paris for “The Partisan.”
The CD also includes a booklet with photos and details the lyrics as performed.
