Warnes, Jennifer

Als Backgroundsängerin bei Cohen in den 70ern war sie noch recht unbekannt. Den internationalen Durchbruch schaffte sie mit dem duett "Up Where we Belong" mit Joe Cocker 1983, der Soundtrack des Films "Ein Offizier & Gentleman" mit Richard Gere.

1986 coverte sie bei ihrem Album "Famous Blue Raincoat" ausschließlich Songs von Leonard Cohen,

1. First we take Manhattan 3:44

2. Bird on a wire 4:42

3. Famous blue raincoat 5:33

4. Joan of Arc (guest vocal : Leonard Cohen) 7:47

5. Ain’t no cure for love 3:19

6. Coming back to you 3:42

7. Song of Bernadette 3:58

8. A singer must die 4:50

9. Came so far for beauty 3:57

darunter das bis dahin unveröffentlichte "Song Of Bernadette":

There was a child named Bernadette

I heard the story long ago

She saw the Queen of Heaven once

And kept the vision in her soul

No one believed what she had seen

No one believed what she heard

That there were sorrows to be healed

And mercy, mercy in this world

So many hearts I find

Broke like yours and mine

Torn by what we've done and can't undo

I just want to hold you

Won't you let me hold you

Like Bernadette would do

We've been around, we fall, we fly

We mostly fall, we mostly run

And every now and then we try

To mend the damage that we've done

Tonight, tonight I cannot rest

I've got this joy inside my breast

To think that I did not forget

That child, that song of Bernadette

So many hearts I find ...

Auf "Old Ideas" ist Jennifer warnes ebenso als Background-Sängerin dabei.

Bonus tracks:

10. The Night Comes On

11. Ballad Of the Runaway Horse

12. If It Be Your Will
