Judy Collins introduced Leonard Cohen to the world. His song „Suzanne“ became a hit for Judy Collins and was for many years his most covered song. Collins‘ use of Cohen’s material gave him his first successes and the duo’s working relationship persuaded Cohen to brach out as a performer as well as a songwriter.

Judith „Judy“ Marjorie Collins (born May 1, 1939) is an American singer and songwriter, known for her eclectic tastes in the material she records (which has included folk, show tunes, pop, rock and roll and standards); and for her social activism.

Here Judy talks candidly about her relationship with Leonard Cohen, his work, songs and her own interpretations of his material.
