Art of the Cover - Leonard Cohen's "Can't Forget: A Souvenir of the Grand Tour" (2015)

The ten songs of this hypnotic album are real rarities, recorded on his recent, celebrated "Old Ideas World Tour."

The album includes some songs Cohen has never released before - songs like "Never Gave Nobody Trouble" and "Got a Little Secret" - as well as a covers of George Jones' "Choices" and Georges Dor's "La Manic".

Can't Forget gives listeners an extremely special glimpse into Cohen's intimate rehearsal process, widely known to be in-depth 'concerts before the concert,' heard by fans for the first time with this new record.  

The songs on Can't Forget have the immediacy, spontaneity, and thrilling intimacy of the best studio recordings made in the white heat of live performance and Cohen's legendary soundchecks, in which he brings the colors of his virtuoso band to full bloom in harmony with his voice, never more seductive.
