The “weird” album from from the Bard Of The Boudoir. He teamed up with Phil Spector of all people which didn’t make sense to many. Spector’s downslide into “what the fuck” territory had begen with the “pistol shooting in the studio” incident while producing John Lennon’s Roots album in 1975. Hell, his fellow canuk and good friend Joni Mitchell even warned him about working with Spector. Cohen’s minimalist style and Spector’s “wall of sound” was a dichotomy made in mundane. The album was a thud leaving many fans wondering what in the hell was going on.
Oddly, the album is a hit in Sweden
