“It's four in the morning, the end of december I'm writing you now just to see if you're better": Original Record of Leonard Cohen's Songs of Love and Hate; Signed by Him
Original lp vinyl record of Leonard Cohen’s third album Songs of Love and Hate, boldly signed by him on the front panel. Produced by Bob Johnston, the album was released on March 19, 1971, through Columbia Records. The album reached no. 145 on the US Billboard 200, but was his most commercially successful album in many other parts of the world, reaching no. 4 in the UK and no. 8 in Australia. Writing in 2011, Cohen biographer Anthony Reynolds noted, “In some quarters it was the album that seemed to seal Cohen’s reputation as being something of a downer, to say the least.” In his review of the 2007 reissue release, Tim Nelson of BBC Music stated that Cohen’s third LP “is perhaps less varied than the first two albums, but the focus is more intense and the sequencing superb. Be warned though: this is one of the scariest albums of the last forty years…” Mark Deming of AllMusic calls Songs of Love and Hate “one of Leonard Cohen’s most emotionally intense albums – which, given the nature of Cohen’s body of work, is no small statement.” In 2012, Rolling Stone ranked the album no. 295 on its list of the 500 Greatest Albums of all Time, the only Cohen album to make the list. It was ranked no. 74 on Pitchfork Media’s 2004 list of the 100 best albums of the 1970s. “Famous Blue Raincoat” was voted #3 by in a Rolling Stone readers poll of the top ten greatest Leonard Cohen songs. In near fine condition. Framed.
