Leonard Cohen, on being asked what he “thought of Love and Theft – Bob Dylan’s new album” in the Sony 2001 online chat. Thanks to Tom Sakic, who alerted me to this.
DrHGuy Note: Leonard used similar words to praise at least two other performers he admired:
- George Jones: “I love to hear an old guy laying out his situation.”1
- Alberta Hunter: “I love to hear an old singer lay it out.”2
