Light In The Attic (responsible for releasing our number-one reissue of 2011, Jim Sullivan's U.F.O.) scores again with this collection of late-'60s/early-'70s gems by the brilliant Lee Hazlewood. This is the first in a series of releases delving deeply into the Hazlewood vaults that LITA plans to put out—we can't wait for more!
"While Hazlewood’s work may occasionally recall some of the lighter, lampoon-able aspects of the sixties and early seventies, there is definitely a serious side as well. In fact, while Hazlewood often dueted with pop-oriented female vocalists (most famously Nancy Sinatra), his own parts often evoke the other end of the spectrum: melancholy and longing. Whether he’s deriding 'the man' or bemoaning lost loves, Hazlewood’s rich baritone and 'straight man' attitude make for the ideal balancing act with his chipper leading ladies." - Reviler
"This is what you might call middle-period Hazlewood, after the big hits but before settling into the status of cult hero, being covered by everyone from Lydia Lunch to Billy Ray Cyrus. Here we find Hazlewood working up an act as a kind of WASP Leonard Cohen, or maybe Love’s Arthur Lee on Mogadon, with a range of lush, almost rococo orchestrations worthy of Rogerio Duprat or Jean-Claude Vannier." - The Line Of Best Fit
