Marc Cohn On Mountain Stage (NPR, 7/05/10)

ost recently, Cohn and producer/instrumentalist John Leventhal have collaborated on Listening Booth: 1970, to be released July 20. The new album is named for the year that stirred Cohn's interest in pop music and saw the release of influential albums by Simon & Garfunkel, Cat Stevens, Van Morrison, Neil Young and many more. On Listening Booth: 1970, Cohn interprets songs of that era in his own style.

Performing here in his second appearance on Mountain Stage, joined by widely-acclaimed guitarist Shane Fontayne, Cohn performs a career-spanning extended set, including two performances not heard on the radio broadcast: "Perfect Love" by Marc Cohn and Cat Stevens' "Wild World."
