“A number of people know my name, but very few people have bought a record of mine” Leonard Cohen Interview – Finland 1993

In this April 27, 1993 interview (scheduled in anticipation of the April 29, 1993 Helsinki concert), Cohen addresses such familiar topics as his slow, perfectionist style of songwriting, his lack of commercial success, the deterioration of the social structure following the destruction of the Berlin Wall, and the fragmentation of Los Angeles.
