Cohen Covered: November 1, 2008 

Cohen CoveredCohen Covered  The December '08 issue of MOJO magazine celebrates "deep and moving music, the kind of stuff we need in the run up to the holiday period" with a tribute CD to Leonard Cohen. Explains MOJO: "Straddling the world of literature and music, his talent as a deeply personal wordsmith allows his music to remain open to endless interpretation and accounts for the 300-plus cover versions of of his material that have been recorded to date. Fifteen of the finest of these have been hand-picked for inclusion here on this exclusive MOJO tribute to a truly remarkable artist, a man who has become a restless citizen of the world, as was James Joyce."


Of Allison Crowe's contribution to its 'All Star Tribute", MOJO says: "Once famously described by the Vancouver Courier as possessing a style akin to 'Elton John meets Edith Piaf', the Canadian singer-songwriter Allison Crowe is renowned for her ability to blend control and melodrama. Certainly she does so on this spirited cover of Cohen's Songs of Love and Hate classic, a track which also powerfully showcases her considerable talent as a fine interpreter of song."
