Commander Cohen

Columbia Records will end a three-year drought of Leonard Cohen releases when 'Field Commander Cohen: Tour Of 1979' hits the shelves on Tuesday February 20, 2001.

This collection features such Cohen classics as "The Smokey Life," "The Gypsy's Wife," "The Stranger Song" and "So Long, Marianne." Recorded during stops on his '79 U.K. tour at London's Hammersmith Odeon and Brighton's Dome Theatre, the cuts resonate with Cohen's trademark live aura.

Warm, dark and piercingly beautiful, this record captures the essence of the Leonard Cohen concert experience.
