Here's the second of two versions of the classic Leonard Cohen song released by Allison Crowe on her album "Heavy Graces".

"Famous Blue Raincoat", its composer, Leonard Cohen, says, reflects on the "tyranny" of possession -- of the kind that enslaves us as women and men.

It's territory covered here by Canadian musician Allison Crowe. (Crowe's previously celebrated the Cohen songbook via singular interpretations of "Hallelujah", "Joan of Arc" and other tunes from the master songsmith.)

Impressionistic visual accompaniment comes via film scenes from "The Blue Angel" ("Der blaue Engel" first released in Europe in 1930 saw its full North American release the following year.) This song video is the final of the music-movie mash-ups to accompany the album, and, this track also concludes the album's songs.
