"unrequited (unanswered) love"
Unanswered; not returned; not reciprocated; not repaid.
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.
