About this album

Songs of Love and Hate is Canadian singer-songwriter Leonard Cohen’s third album. It was mainly recorded in Columbia Studio A in Nashville from September 22–26, 1970. “Sing Another Song, Boys” was recorded at the Isle of Wight Festival on August 30, 1970. Further recording took place at Trident Studios in London. The album reached #145 on the US Billboard 200, but was his most commercially successful album in many other parts of the world, reaching #4 in the UK and #8 in Australia. The album title is descriptive, outlining its main themes. The songs contain emotive language and are frankly personal; “Famous Blue Raincoat” ends with the line “Sincerely, L. Cohen”. The back cover of the album bears the lines: They locked up a man Who wanted to rule the world The fools They locked up the wrong man. A remastered CD was released in 1995.
