Plays: 1,544

Leonard Cohen visited 92Y in 1966 to read several poems and perform one song that would become an all-time classic. In this excerpt, Cohen reads two poems – “For E.J.P” and “You Have the Lovers” – and performs “The Stranger Song,” which became popular in 1967, with the release of Cohen’s debut album Songs of Leonard Cohen.
