First we take Manhattan
Brilliant spanish cover of this already brilliant original. Might be difficult to find, but you will not be sorry.

Comments about First we take Manhattan:
|Original is always genuine. |
But this one was a really powerful reinterpretation of it. They turn it up and down, and I think Mr Cohen was kind of satisfied.
Also, what this album meant in Flamenco is so big that Leonard Cohen should be completely proud. RIP Maestro Morente.

|La meilleure des deux versions est celle de Leonard Cohen mais la meilleure est pour moi la reprise qu'en a fait le groupe Sirenia.|

|no contest. How can you go with anyone other than Cohen here?|

|Cohen's sarcasm comes through wonderfully.|
Check out the Jennifer Warnes version on her album Famous Blue Raincoat, though. It's worth it.
