The classic 1991 Leonard Cohen tribute album I’m Your Fan is to be reissued as an two-LP vinyl set later this month.
The album features some fine interpretations of Cohen’s work including John Cale’s near-definitive take on Hallelujah and a creative deconstruction of Tower of Song by Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds. Lloyd Cole tackles Chelsea Hotel and R.E.M. (at the time approaching the summit of their popularity) cover First We Take Manhattan from what was at the time Cohen’s most recent album I’m Your Man (hence the name of this compilation!).
The reissue (from Music On Vinyl) is pressed on two 180g vinyl records and is released on 27 October 2014.
