Editorial Reviews

2012 anthology from the legendary songwriter, producer and '60s icon. Singles, Nudes & Backsides collects the best of Lee's solo songs and duets from his LHI (Lee Hazlewood Industries) imprint. The songs present a man conflicted; he's the tender-hearted romantic, the broken-hearted loser and the rugged cowboy, all in one. It's there in the western swing of 'Califia (Stone Rider)', the loneliness of 'The Bed' and the bleak beauty of 'If It's Monday Morning.' Hazlewood's tremulous voice was made for duets; here, Suzi Jane Hokom, Ann-Margret and Nina Lizell play counterpart to his manly tones.

DJ, record producer, songwriter, and---unlikely Cult Pop Icon, without him we may never have had the likes of Duane Eddy, Nancy Sinatra or Gram Parsons. From Peter Gunn to These Boots Are Made For Walkin', surely there's a place in the American Songbook for Lee Hazlewood?

Distinguished by campy 60's Pop production, sticky-sweet melodies, mordantly witty lyrics and an ominously dead pan baritone, Lee Hazlewood was one of a kind. Creating a sound some have gone to such lengths to describe as "Cowboy Psychedelica" or "Saccharine Underground".

High time Lee's classic singles were available. Outside of his Nancy & Lee LP's this is THE place to go for more on this Pop genius/ raconteur. From haunting Psyche duets to Spaghetti Western Cabaret, this collection is essential, since many of the albums proper are long out of print.

The twisted Gospel of Sleeping in the Grass captures Hazlewood at his most casually sarcastic--- while The Bed & The Night Before are devastatingly dark Honky Tonk Weepers that touch on Leonard Cohen territory.

With a few exceptions, the funny thing about Hazlewood is that he's funny when he's trying to be serious--- and serious when he's trying to be funny. As evidenced on Chico and Victims of the Night.

Among selections from his Cowboy In Sweden album, Leather & Lace is up there with Nancy & Lee. No Train To Stockholm has been a long personal favorite. Elsewhere, It's Monday Morning is Hazlewood at his finest.

Even more stunning are unreleased tongue & cheek gems like I Just Learned to Run. In fact, it might just be my favorite Hazlewood tune of all time. I can't believe it's been sitting in the vault for 40 + years!

I always fear the worst when I see the word 'remastered' but fortunately this CD displays no noticeable adjustment to the sound/mix on the tracks from 'Cowboy In Sweden' (1970), now regarded as the unacknowledged curio-classic of the Hazlewood catalogue - probably because the very concept of it still seems so bizarre even today. Five of the best songs from that LP are resurrected here although one of my favourites, 'Pray Them Bars Away', isn't one of them. Thankfully 'The Night Before' is included even though it's not actually a Lee composition, but it's a sumptuous track.

Elsewhere we have the usual Hazlewood cocktail of schmaltz, C&W bubblegum and a touch of genius. This CD is full of Lee's unique brand of humour with its lurking dark side and trademark drug references ( ".... Hey cowboy, whered'ya get that horse... Hey cowboy, from the man of course..." ). Aside from the five Sweden tracks the highlights here are 'Califia' (the title song of a disappointing CD from 2010 of early Lee songs for other artists), tracks 5, 12 and 7 - 'Bye Babe' - a new one to me and a real undiscovered gem with a brilliant arrangement and swirling Hammond organ outro. The three songs lifted from Lee's other LHI cowboy collaboration LP, with Ann Margret, haven't aged as well as the Sweden tracks and now sound a little weak by comparison. Track 16, 'Come On Home To Me', is one of Lee's greatest songs although his own original recording didn't make the most of its potential. Check out the cover by Norway's Madrugada on the 'Total Lee' tribute album (2002) for a more ambitious version.

The CD is accompanied by a well-illustrated personal memoir by Lee's former publicist/manager, not easy to read because of its layout and background colouring but worth the effort if you persevere.

Legend has it that Lee Hazlewood's LHI era contains his most richly bizarre and creative work and this compilation of such tracks from Light In The Attic serves as ample proof of this. Imagine Johnny Cash after a dosage of hallucinogens heading off to Vegas via Sweden and you get the picture. Actually, the reality is even stranger. An All-American dude burns his bridges and heads off to Sweden - when has THAT ever happened in the history of Rock n Roll? But clearly this relocation induced a creative spark in Hazlewood that doubtless would not have occurred elsewhere. What other time and place could possibly have created a tune like "Hey Cowboy" which captures this dislocation marvellously?

The material on this disk has an early `70s lounge/country quality but with a distinctly surreal twist. On the surface the music sounds fairly conventional but repeated listens slowly reveal the strange world invoked by the lyrics and musical structure. Lee really was one of a kind.

On the downside is the sound quality. Well actually there's good news and bad. The good news is that this CD does NOT suffer from the "loudness wars". There is no loss of dynamics and if you're planning on ripping the tunes to a jukebox, you won't have to suffer a sudden burst of excess volume. The bad news is that it has that hard, sterile artificial quality that we all associate with "digital" sound. Since these tracks are purportedly from the original analog masters and bearing in mind how much digital has improved over the past 8 or 9 years, I don't really understand why this would be. It's clearly a case of poor mastering since there's no excuse for any CDs to sound like this today. Disappointing, but you can still listen to it.
