Leonard Cohen and Jefferson Airplane

The new Leonard Cohen CD/DVD 2-disc set Songs From The Road is (as expected) phenomenal. The performances are all perfect. Twelve songs from eleven different shows from 2008 and 2009. (There are shots of the audiences for all the shows except of course for the one i was at in San Jose - i was in the sixth row, and i was really hoping i'd be visible - oh well.) And the special feature on the DVD - Backstage Sketch - is a total treat. It has great snippets of all the band members and footage of Leonard Cohen warming up in an empty concert hall, as well as a bit of "Feels So Good," one of his new songs. I highly recommend this CD/DVD. It was released on September 15th.

I also got the four new Jefferson Airplane CDs. And let me just say: WOW. I had very high expectations for these, and they've exceeded them. I'll be writing reviews of all four CDs (actually, two of them have two discs) and posting those reviews on Suite101 soon. They're due to be released in late October.
