The music for McCabe & Mrs. Miller was mainly by Leonard Cohen. Altman had liked Cohen’s debut album, Songs of Leonard Cohen (1967), immensely, buying additional copies of it after wearing each one out. He had then forgotten about the LP. A few years later, Altman visited Paris, just after finishing shooting McCabe & Mrs. Miller, and rediscovered Cohen’s album; he had it transferred and used the music to maintain a rhythm for the film (in effect using it as a temp track). Altman didn’t expect to be able to procure rights for Cohen’s music since McCabe was a Warner Brothers film and Cohen’s album was released through Columbia Records. He called Cohen, “he said he didn’t like M*A*S*H so much, but Brewster McCloud was the best picture ever.”
Cohen arranged for his record company to license the music cheaply, even writing into the contract that sales of that album after the release of McCabe would turn some of the royalties to Altman (an arrangement which at the time was quite unusual). Later, on watching McCabe to come up with a guitar riff for one scene, Cohen decided he didn’t like the film. Nonetheless, he honored his contract and recorded the music for it. A year later he called Altman to apologize, saying he had seen the film again and loved it. The three Cohen songs used in the film were The Stranger Song, Sisters of Mercy and Winter Lady. They were released together on a 7-inch single in 1971. [x]

McCabe & Mrs. Miller was shot with two cameras. It was efficient. We were getting away from the idea that once you lit a scene you couldn’t move the camera. If you moved the camera, you had to move the light. If you moved the camera just this much you’d fuck it up. I said, ‘I can’t deal with that.’ Suppose you come into a scene and you see a guy sitting at a desk. The audience knows the camera is on him alone. That’s the only thing you’re seeing. But suppose the camera is coming through the office and out of the corner of your eye you see somebody at their desk do something and you get sucked into that? That appeals to me more than the setup. Unless the setup is very specific and I’m using it as part of the storytelling. —Robert Altman
