Leonard Cohen – “True Love Leaves No Traces” from Death of a Ladies’ Man (1977)
I don’t like Phil Spector – mostly because he’s a murderer.
However, the bombast of his arrangements on this record are the perfect backdrop for Leonard Cohen’s characterization of a pathetic, aging philanderer. Of the two, I would say Cohen probably understood best the irony of the record (and the whole era, for that matter).
Spector was probably just really coked-up.
