A beautiful ballad from the first set of our MAD DOGS & MAINERS tribute show to Joe Cocker. Featuring some of the finest musicians we know, we were able to bring one of the great rock shows of all time to Portland, Maine.
“Bird On A Wire” (or “Bird On The Wire”) was written and recorded by Leonard Cohen in 1968 for his album “Songs From A Room”. As one of his signature songs, it found its way onto almost all of Cohen’s live albums and was tweaked by the songwriter throughout the years.
