Dylan sang backup vocals on Leonard Cohen’s Don’t Go Home With Your Hard On from the Phil Spector produced Death Of A Ladies’ Man album in 1977.
In the late 1980s Dylan performed Cohen’s now classic Hallelujah in concert. The song had two alternate endings, not to mention many different verses in different orders, but Dylan preferred the less bleak one. They talked about it together along with comparing notes on the art of writing - Cohen frequently taking years to write and record some songs, while Dylan can write a masterpiece in fifteen minutes.
Cohen gives Dylan credit for encouraging him to sing his own poetry.
