Famous Blue Raincoat
Many people have thrown their vocal hats at Leonard Cohen’s Famous Blue Raincoat so I’d steered clear until advised to look at it again. I did and I fell in deepest love. Working with Jenny Carr we found the subtle rage and redemption within and I couldn’t wait to record it with her and Dudley Philips. It carries all the weight of a huge story but Cohen feeds it drop by drop, masterfully bringing the personal and the universal together.
“Possibly our greatest interpreter of Dylan’s songs,” Barb Jungr returns with the second single from the forthcoming collection, Forgetful Heart: Dylan and Cohen and Love, featuring love songs by Bob Dylan and Leonard Cohen.
