Deal alert / Leonard Cohen: The Complete Studio Albums Collection

A fantastic price for a fantastic collection of music. Leonard Cohen‘s The Complete Studio Albums Collection was issued in 2011 and is an 11 CD set that takes listeners from 1967’s Songs of Leonard Cohen all the way to 2004’s Dear Heather.

At the time of writing you can get this set for an almost embarrassingly low £18 from Amazon UK. Of course, the title is rather inaccurate now, given Cohen’s recent work rate, but nonetheless a great deal!

    A great deal! I got this a few months ago for about $20 and change. Listening to it now, actually. Highly recommended!

  2. Hugh says:

    Clarification on pricing–this is actually £18 TOTAL shipped to your door in the US (unit cost is £15 and change). Currently just over $29 all in.

  3. John Able says:

    Picked this up a couple of days ago for about £21.00 which I thiught was a steal. Amazon Autorip included so straight to my iPad. Haven’t stopped listening since. Great collection.

  4. Michael L says:

    Bought it for £18 the other day and the Autorip also includes 2012’s ‘Old Ideas’. Even better value!

  5. Le Baron. says:

    Not really a fan of the artist, but what a cheap price to discover such an iconic artist’s complete discography!
    According to many feedbacks on Amazon, the remastering sounds stunning!
    Thanks for the alert!! :)

  6. Hub Hamers says:

    Amazon : “AutoRip is available only to customers with billing addresses in the United Kingdom who have a United Kingdom bank-issued credit card associated with their Amazon.co.uk account.”

    That’s a shame! And the price went up to £19,81 = postage to the Netherlands…. Still cheap but not what expected.

  7. Hub Hamers says:

    Oops, = must be +

  8. Dean says:

    I have this set, and it’s excellent in most regards.

    My only issue is with the music itself. Cohen’s early works are truly marvelous, deep, sensual, touching. However mid-career he hit a bare patch, and it’s nowhere near as good. I’d say half this set is essential, the other half not so much.

    Just my opinion of course. It’s good to have them all, who knows, I may get into the ones I don’t like eventually.

  9. LedMan says:

    I picked this up for around $15 USD last year I believe. Wanted to hear more of his music and the content and sound quality are great!

  10. The masterings are uniformly solid on this box set. You do lose a handful of bonus songs that found their way on the first three albums’ reissues.

    There is a larger box set that includes all of his live output as well, though that has been out of print for a while.

  11. Joep says:

    Ordered. Great alert again.

    Many thanks Paul.

    Kept thinking of buying this last month and finally went for it last week.
    In itself I was thinking all of Cohen’s studio albums for around £18 is a bargain but I wasn’t expecting the clarity that the remastering has brought out.
    If you like Leonard Cohen this is a no- brainer!

  13. Justin Isbell says:

    A good spot…thanks for heads up. You also get an unexpected 12th album (Old Ideas) with Amazon’s auto-rip making it even better value !!
