Strange Weather is a studio album by British singer Marianne Faithfull. This album is the first complete studio work recorded by Marianne Faithfull after recovering from a year addiction to heroin in The album's 3 predecessors on Island Records were all recorded while Faithfull confronted various personal struggles and contained a majority of lyrics and some music penned by Faithfull herself.
In contrast, Strange Wo Schläfst Du - Marianne Rosenberg - Für Immer Wie Heute is a striking mix of rock, blues and dark cabaret, and though none of the songs were written by Faithfull all are tied together by the spare and nuanced production of Hal Willner along with a notable group of contributing musicians.
The title track has since become a Faithfull concert staple and has appeared live in three additional recordings. However the song "Tower of Song" does not actually appear on this tribute album.
Phil Collins turned down the chance to contribute because he was unavailable. The album was conceived by Cohen's manager, Kelley Lynch, who, a decade later, was found liable for fraud, having drained nearly all of his life savings.
The album received a negative review from critic Roch Parisien at AllMusic, who called the album "a total train wreck". However, this view was not shared by Cohen himself, who discussed his generally positive view of the album with Chris Douridas at KCRW radio station, citing his personal preference for Billy Joel's version of "Light As the Breeze" Field Commander Cohen - Leonard Cohen - The CBS Collection his own version.

I have been a Leonard Cohen fan since I was a teenager. I have never seen him perform in concert and this disc has revealed to me how much I have missed!!! This disc is incredible and I'm so grateful it has been released. The musicianship is superb, and Cohen's poetry and vocals never cease to amaze me. Every song is exceptionally performed. The highest Come Go With Me - Exposé - Greatest Hits points: Cohen's interspersing Morey Amsterdam's routine in "Field Commander Field Commander Cohen - Leonard Cohen - The CBS Collection is hilarious, especially given Cohen's deadpan delivery; "The Stranger Song" is performed even more hauntingly than the studio version; "Memories" is outstanding and far surpasses the Phil Spector-produced studio version; and the closer, "So Long, Marianne" brings it all back home.
Cohen really put together an outstanding group of musicians on this tour. And special thanks to Judy Collins for convincing Cohen that he must perform Anyone who has never experienced the music of Leonard Cohen is an unfortunate soul, indeed. His voice has undergone many changes over the past several decades, but I have yet to find him giving less than an astounding performance at any level; these live recordings from are no exception.
Other reviewers Field Commander Cohen - Leonard Cohen - The CBS Collection given more vivid descriptions of this album than any I might offer, so let me just say this: I would be astounded to find anyone with true human spirit who, after giving this collection a fair try-out, is anything less than captivated.
Every song is magnificent, as is Field Commander Cohen - Leonard Cohen - The CBS Collection Cohen himself. It seems I always knew Leonard Cohen's music, but didn't really get seriously into it until his comeback. This concert is an intriguing time capsule. The sound is crisp, the orchestrations deviate somewhat from the recent concerts, and there is a great entity, album feel to this CD. I enjoyed especially Memories which is absent from the recent live CDs.
Amazing that he has actually improved so much During this period I wasn't a big fan. It is only since he emerged well into his 70s to the tour, which still continues, that his brilliance has achieved a new level of musicality and performance. This has some of his famous songs and the whole range is excellent.
Amazing that he has actually improved so much since then. Some of the old songs survive and sound as fresh as ever. Some of the then- new songs I was unfamiliar with as they have retired from his play list, but were greeted enthusiastically by that long ago audience. I think the musical arrangements have gotten more sophisticated in later years, giving more scope to the instrumentals. His voice has gotten lower and lower one reviewer describes it as "canyon deep but he remains the one, the only,the not yet late thank the godsgreat Leonard.
Why only four stars? I reserve five for the "Old Ideas" album. If and when he releases a new collection, as I hope and pray he does, I expect I'll just have to invent a sixth star. Contemporary folk. More Best of Leonard Cohen Field Commander Cohen: Tour of Ten New Songs Pitchfork Media.
