The Other Leonard Cohen Album

Given that The Other Leonard Cohen Album was first posted in January 2010, the most appropriate celebration of this event would seem to be a recapitulation of the contents of the bootleg and the directions for downloading for those readers who may have joined our merry band too recently to be aware of this compilation.

The Other Songs Of Leonard Cohen (aka The Other Leonard Cohen Album1 ), is a collection of hitherto unreleased Cohen songs,2 DrHGuy constructed rather than nag the Jeremiah Of Tin Pan Alley3 to complete that new album that is now due in Spring 2012.
