The tragedy was mitigated (to an extent) by the fact he had lived a full, fantastic live – reaching the tender age of eighty-two and having laid down some life-changing albums. It is impossible to fully explain the full extent of Cohen’s genius, legacy and influence. I have been listening to Leonard Cohen’s extensive, stunning back catalogue– in order to compile a list of his ten essential recordings.
