Leonard Cohen: For bedsit land there came songs from a room; in rooms of gloom there was now a joyous melancholia. Leonard was a doyenne of the late 1960's counterculture. A poet for many years he hardly burst on to the scene; but 1967 was the year when the first LP was released. It was a means to an end - he needed to make more money. Misery? Gloomy? There is a crack in everything... where the light shines through.
