This title was out of print before it was even pressed! Only 6,000 copies were made, and Acoustic Sounds, Inc. has one-third of the world’s production and one-half of those have already been sold. Get it while it lasts!

Mastered by Bernie Grundman. Cut at 45 RPM! Pressed on HQ 180-gram virgin vinyl! Approved by Jennifer Warnes herself, who announced upon first listening, “That’s it!!!”

“…This is a sumptuous sounding and beautifully presented three-record box. Cut at 45rpm, FBR now has an improved momentum and a deeper bass, which strengthens the rhythmic sense of Jenny’s delivery as it propels us through these exceptional and well-loved Leonard Cohen songs. The transparency, delineation and overall presentation of her delicious vocals are verisimilitude in vinyl.” Recording = 10/10; Music = 9.5/10 – Reuben Parry, Hi-Fi+, Issue 58

Famous Blue Raincoat 20th Anniversary Edition 45 RPM LP set features three LPs of quiet virgin vinyl, a 24-page 12″ square booklet with complete lyrics, five bonus tracks (four from the Shout! Factory CD plus a Cisco exclusive analog demo recording of “A Singer Must Die,” with one missing verse added and a breathtakingly upfront vocal by Jennifer), production notes and exclusive photographs, all packed in a beautiful box for excellent presentation and preservation of your investment.

The 45-RPM version of this great title is a much more refined and satisfying listening experience. Bass is deeper, highs glisten but aren’t excessive and Jennifer’s non-EQ’d voice becomes a “living presence” in your listening room. An important and much-loved record like Famous Blue Raincoat deserves to be heard exactly as the artist intended.

On Famous Blue Raincoat: The Songs of Leonard Cohen, Jennifer Warnes rearranged and reinterpreted some of Leonard Cohen’s greatest songs for a unique album that remains the ultimate tribute to Cohen’s music. It was greeted with rave reviews, and made numerous year-end best-of lists.
