Songs From the Road collects twelve performances of some of Leonard Cohen‘s most iconic songs from across all of those many miles and performances.
The performances were recorded in High Definition 16:9 and 5.1 Surround Sound and are available in three separate formats:
• CD/DVD in oversized 2-disc softpack
• Blu-Ray in standard Amray case
• 180gm vinyl LP in a gatefold cover
The DVD and Blu-Ray also have a twenty-minute backstage interview with the various band members conducted by Leonard’s daughter, Lorca Cohen.
All of the sets contain album liner notes by Leon Wieseltier, editor of the New Republic, and track-by-track insider’s commentary written by Ed Sanders, who produced, edited and directed both the CD and DVD versions
