From the above link by Jem Treadwell – thank you Jem.
This is a short part of an interview with Leonard Cohen that was broadcast on BBC Radio One in England sometime in 1974. I don’t know the exact date, the name of the interviewer, or why I only recorded the final ten minutes. Key topics are the film Bird On A Wire and the New Skin For The Old Ceremony album, which was released later the same year.

The recording finishes with a pre-release version of Why Don’t You Try, which may be removed in some countries for copyright reasons. In that case, the accompanying reading material should help to fill the gap.

Leonard sounded totally wasted in that interview -- maybe it was just the murky sound quality of the old recording. Some interesting bits, thanks!

My pleasure, Lisa 8)
Yes, the sound wasn't the best but I was glad to listen to this interview.
It would have been great to hear the first part of it. Maybe someone has it somewhere - she says hopefully :)
