This is a really well made record - from the arrangements, to the playing and singing, to the engineering and mastering. Really gorgeous recording.

Great Tribute to Leonard Cohen featuring lost guitar great Stevie Ray Vaughn on "First We Take Manhattan" and Leonard Cohen himself in a vocal duet with Jennifer Warnes on "Joan Of Arc" and the lyric inner-sleeve even features a little drawing by Leonard Cohen with the words "Jenny Sings Lenny" as part of it!

This original 1986 pressing is hard-to-find and great sounding.
