 Notes & Reviews
 
2015 release from the veteran singer/songwriter. The ten songs on this hypnotic album are Cohen rarities recorded on his recent, celebrated Old Ideas World Tour. The songs on Can't Forget have the immediacy, spontaneity, and thrilling intimacy of the best studio recordings made in the white heat of live performance and Cohen's legendary soundchecks, in which he brings the colors of his virtuoso band to full bloom in harmony with his voice, never more seductive. Here is a full range of Leonard Cohen's work: new songs including the wickedly funny 'Got a Little Secret' and 'Never Gave Nobody Trouble'; luxurious performances of such Cohen masterpieces as 'I Can't Forget,' 'Light As a Breeze,' 'Night Comes On,' and a sublime 'Joan of Arc'. Cohen also treats us to a gripping version of the Quebecois love song 'La Manic,' performed before a captivated audience in Quebec City, and a moving tribute cover of the late country master George Jones's 'Choices.' These are songs and performances of the first order that you can't forget. Can't Forget gives listeners an extremely special glimpse into Cohen's intimate rehearsal process, widely known to be in-depth 'concerts before the concert!,' heard by fans for the first time with this new record. Cohen continues to work with vocalists, musicians, producers and engineers who are the best in the business.
