Leonard Cohen New Skin For The Old Ceremony 150g LP
By the time Leonard Cohen began his recording career in 1967, the
iconoclastic Canadian troubadour was already well established as a poet and
author. He quickly emerged as one of the era's most original and influential
singer-songwriters, building a large and legendary body of work that continues
to inspire artists and listeners alike.
Much of Cohen's reputation and mystique was established by his early work for
Columbia Records, particularly the five albums he recorded between 1967 and
1974. Now, these five classic albums have been lovingly restored to their
original LP format.
For their new Sundazed editions, all five albums have been meticulously
remastered and have been sourced from the original Columbia Records stereo
masters in order to preserve the sound of the original albums. In keeping with
the exacting standards for which Sundazed has become known, each album is
pressed on high-definition vinyl, with complete original cover art.
This vinyl edition of this historic album marks a crucial addition to the
Leonard Cohen catalog.
1974's New Skin for the Old Ceremony saw Cohen taking a turn away from the spare
sound of his earlier releases, with such numbers as "Chelsea Hotel #2", "There
Is a War" and "A Singer Must Die" featuring expanded instrumental arrangements
and some of the most expressive vocal performances of Cohen's career.
