“Helen’s Theme” By Leonard Cohen Featured On Cassette


Dominique BOILE points out that this Columbia Records promotional cassette contains six of the nine tracks found on The Future album. Two of those three songs, “Always” and “Light As The Breeze,” are missing altogether, but the most interesting discrepancy is the cassette’s inclusion of “Helen’s Theme (Incidental Music)” as the final song instead of the album’s “Tacoma Trailer.”

“Helen’s Theme (Incidental Music)” was an early, shorter (four minutes long) piece that later became “Tacoma Trailer.”
