"I always remembered something Leonard Cohen said in an interview, he was headed to Newport with his manager, ca. 1967, and was worried about sharing the stage with Judy Collins et al. "I don't know if I'm a singer..." "Leonard, NONE of you guys can sing. If I want to hear singers I'll go to the Met!"

...But Judy Collins CAN sing.
