Jennifer Warnes: Famous Blue Raincoat (RCA)

Len Brown, New Musical Express, 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.
