Leonard Cohen "Song Of Leonard Cohen" (1967 original, 2007 remastered)

Songs Of Leonard Cohen
2007 Remastered (1967 Original)

Canadian CD catalogue number: Columbia/Legacy 88697 04742 2
Originally issued in December 1967, as Columbia 9533

Recording sessions for this album began in early 1967 with Columbia A&R staff producer John Hammond, who signed Leonard Cohen to the label. Hammond, famously known for bringing Count Basie, Billie Holiday, Olatunji, Pete Seeger, Aretha Franklin, Bob Dylan, and others to Columbia, fell ill and was unable to continue on the sessions; they were subsequently completed by A&R staff producer John Simon (the uncredited producer of Big Brother & the Holding Company's Cheap Thrills). "Store Room" and "Blessed Is the Memory" survive from the original Hammond sessions.
