True Love Leaves No Traces / Leonard Cohen
A true gentleman and scholar, a fine poet, an unmet friend, a comfort, a very funny man,
a lover not a fighter. Song from the oft-slated, Phil Spector-produced Death of A Ladies'
Man album which nevertheless had several great moments, including this song. At one
of the three concerts I saw him in (all joyous, all full of love from the audience for the
man, and from the man for his audience) Leonard said he'd wanted Spector "in his Debussy
period, but I got him in his Wagner period", but this track for me is sublime.
Sail on. Love you, man.
