Warnes' immaculate interepretation of "Famous Blue Raincoat" blows Tori Amos' well-known version out of the water! Just as exquisite are "Bird On A Wire," "First We Take Manhattan" and "Ain't No Cure For Love. Jennifer Warnes has a great voice, but it doesn't convey the light, airy quality of Judy Collins.

Famous Blue Raincoat is the sixth studio album recorded by the American singer Jennifer Warnes. Released in January 1987, Famous Blue Raincoat is a tribute to Leonard Cohen, with whom Warnes had toured as a backup singer in the 1970s. The album's songs span much of Cohen's career, from his 1969.
Jennifer Warnes had mixed feelings ethically about the song's lyrical content, but admired Cohen's genius. He used the metrical foot Amphibrach in Famous Blue Raincoat. A long syllable with soft ones on both sides. It has a plodding rhythm which makes it feel like someone walking slowly and heavily, plodding sadly along.
Jennifer Warnes quotes. The job of singing is to stay open to the river of soul in all its manifestations, the dark and the light, without letting your ego get in the way. I never want to be bigger than the song.
