 Notes & Reviews
 
Collaborating with longtime producer/arranger and fellow Grammy Award-winner John Leventhal, Marc Cohn doesn't merely recreate the sounds of this storied time. On Listening Booth: 1970, he transforms songs from such artists as Cat Stevens, John Lennon, Paul McCartney, Van Morrison, Smokey Robinson, CCR, J.J. Cale, Paul Simon and Bread into tracks that are warm, soulful, a little sexy and full of easy-going charm. These highly personal interpretations have been so creatively and confidently re-imagined, they feel brand new. 1970 was a milestone for Marc and for pop culture at large, given the range of notable artists who made the charts that year. The songs of 1970 would stick with him forever, as they would with anyone of a tender age just discovering the deeper meanings and life lessons to be gleaned from a'simple' pop tune.
