Leonard Cohen: Live Songs (Columbia)
Jaan Uhelszki, Creem, August 1973
LEONARD COHEN is no sissy! Now, I know you always thought poets were gushing queers and over-grown altar boys, but not our guy, Lennie. He's got guts. Anyone who can make it as a poet in 1973 has to. Poetry has been passé since 1959, ever since the Beatniks followed the dinosaurs to extinction.
