Leonard Cohen: Songs From The Road(Columbia/Legacy, 2010):

Today marks the 76th birthday of Canadian poet, novelist and songman Leonard Cohen.

His newest album – a DVD/CD package – was released last week, and its a sheer delight, featuring a dozen live performances from his 2008-2009 world tour.

There are songs both old and new – including such classics as “Suzanne,” “Bird on the Wire” and a rendition of “Hallelujah” filmed at the Coachella Music Festival that manages to reclaim the overdone gem from the hands of desperate “American Idol” contestants.

8pm: “Levon Helm: Ramble at the Ryman” with such special guests as John Hiatt, Buddy Miller and Sam Bush

9pm: “Leonard Cohen: Live in London”

Can I love you in my own way? I am an old scholar, better-looking now than when I was young. That’s what sitting on your ass does to your face. I’ve come after you, Catherine Tekakwitha. I want to know what goes on under that rosy blanket.”
