Discovering Leonard Cohen a little too late
I just want to add my voice to the avalanche of others telling you that Jeff Buckley did not cover Leonard Cohen’s Hallelujah in 1984’s Various Positions (NOW, November 17-23). Jeff Buckley covered John Cale’s version, and it’s quite different.
Asking someone who “discovered” Cohen in 1988 to write his obit might have been a mistake.
