Thanks for posting these. Started with this one and listened to all five songs. The first two Leonard Cohen albums kept my attention for a long long time. And "Bird on a Wire." After that he lost me until sometime in the 1990s when I heard Jeff Buckley sing "Hallelujah." And then the CD with the ten songs was astounding, all memorable. I particularly like "Love Itself":

The light came through the window,
Straight from the sun above,
And so inside my little room
There plunged the rays of Love.
