  1. Unrequited

    Unrequited is the fifth album from Loudon Wainwright III. It was his last album on the Columbia Records label, released in 1975. Tracks 1–7 were recorded in a studio, while tracks 8–14 were recorded live at the Bottom Line in New York City. Tracks 15–17 are bonus tracks included on the Sony-Legacy CD reissue. Although stylistically typical of Wainwright's mid-1970s output, the album is somewhat groundbreaking in that though all songs are originals, one side is studio, the other live.

The Roycroft Dictionary

    (Used generally with the word love.) Inability to make both ends meet.
