Jennifer Warnes: Famous Blue Raincoat (RCA)
Len Brown, NME, 20 June 1987
THE TOTAL exhumation and resurrection of Leonard Cohen gathers alarming pace. Here Jennifer Warnes, one-time backer to ole grumble-guts, runs through nine of laff-a-lifetime-Len's golden greats, and the result is extremely gratifying. But no doubt its UK release is less to do with …Raincoat's American success than the commercially-viable solitude standing of Suzanne Vega.
