"Famous Blue Raincoat" (Choral)  ~ October 10

 

"Famous Blue Raincoat", its composer, Leonard Cohen, says, reflects on the "tyranny" of possession  - of the kind that enslaves us as women and men.

 

It's territory covered here by musician Allison Crowe. (Crowe's previously celebrated the Cohen songbook via renowned interpretations of "Hallelujah", "Joan of Arc" and other tunes from the master songsmith.)

 

 

Impressionistic visual accompaniment comes via film scenes from "The Blue Angel" ("Der blaue Engel" first released in Europe in 1930 saw its full North American release the following year.)

 

This choral rendition of the Leonard Cohen classic is the first of two versions recorded by Allison Crowe for her album "Heavy Graces".
