1 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - 13 - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


By 1972 Lee Hazlewood had settled in his new homeland of Sweden. His days were spent carousing, making movies with Torbjorn Axelman and releasing albums. To keep up his prolific recorded output, Lee began to mine the recently defunct LHI Records archives for material. One such gem, was an unreleased album by Larry Marks.In what became the final days of LHI, staff producer Larry Marks sonic fingerprints were on nearly everything; songwriting, producing, arranging, and singing. His most profound contribution was steering the creative direction of the label towards soul and R&B, arranging the downright funky LHI singles by Barbara Randolph and Jon Christian. Larrys concept was to take Hazlewoods strongest compositions and arrange them in a soul vibe. An album was completed, but with no distribution in America and no funding, Lee had no vehicle to release Larrys record. The tapes were taken to Sweden, Larrys voice was wiped and Hazlewoods was dubbed..13 was born.

3 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - A HOUSE SAFE FOR TIGERS - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


A House Safe For Tigers is the soundtrack to one of the seven TV movies Lee Hazlewood made with the director Torbjorn Axelman during his period living in Sweden in the early 1970s. Hazlewood had moved there to lay low and to help his son avoid the draft, but wound up finding happiness and creative freedom. Many of the albums recorded in Sweden made their way no further than Scandinavia, but of them all, A House Safe For Tigers is the holy grail for collectors, often changing hands for hundreds of dollars.Originally only available in Sweden, this marks the first time Tigers has been reissued and available the world over. The movie was a "semi-documentary" featuring Hazlewood and his friend Axelman, looking back to childhood and contemplating the meaning of life. In it, Hazlewood runs a marathon, tells anecdotes about a bum who cured his stutter and convinces a group of Swedish children to take sides against Richard Nixon. "Its strange, very strange," Hazlewood said, "But we meant it to be strange."

5 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - COWBOY IN SWEDEN - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Light In The Attic records continues its Lee Hazlewood series with this expanded reissue of Cowboy in Sweden. Released as the last LHI LP, Cowboy in Sweden was a soundtrack to the 1970 cult classic film of the same name starring Lee Hazlewood. The film was a surreal psychedelic account of Lees journey to his new homeland, while the soundtrack was a perfect compilation of Hazlewoods strongest songs recorded over a prolific globe trotting three year period. The production scope of the album was the most ambitious of his career, recorded in Paris, London, Los Angeles and Stockholm with a slew of talented session musicians, producers and arrangers.Cowboy in Sweden is quite possibly the purest distillation of the Hazlewood sound; lush melancholy country pop with a pinch of humor ("Pray Them Bars Away"), a dash of bummer ("Cold Hard Times"), some beautiful ladies to sing with ("Leather & Lace" & "Hey Cowboy") and even a couple anti-war protest songs to be topical ("No Train to Stockholm" & "For A Day Like Today"). The David "Bitter Sweet Symphony" Whitaker arranged orchestral pop of "Whats More I Dont Need Her" and the stone cold Hazlewood classic "The Night Before" cement the album as Lees peak on LHI records and ironically the label's swan song.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Pray Them Bars Away 02. Leather And Lace 03. Forget Marie 04. Cold Hard Times 05. The Night Before 06. Hey Cowboy 07. No Train To Stockholm 08. For A Day Like Today 09. Easy And Me 10. Vem Kan Segla (i Can Sail Without The Wind) 11. Me And The Wine And The City Lights 12. Easy And Me (alternate Version) 13. Pray Them Bars Away (alternate Version)

7 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - FORTY - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


"I asked him if he wanted to use any of his songs, and he said, "No." We had a long chat before we did any of this. He said, No, I want you to do it and I want to just be a singer. So I said okay." -Shel TalmyOriginally titled Will The Real Lee Hazlewood Please Stand Up?, Forty was a different kind of Hazlewood album, one in which Lee just focused on being a performer. In 1969 on the eve of his fortieth birthday, Lee flew to England and enlisted Shel Talmy (The Kinks, The Who, Chad & Jeremy, Bert Jansch) to produce an album and hand pick the songs. Shel picked some incredible songs for Lee to sing and even wrote him a song that shouldve been a hit, "Bye Babe." Recorded at famed IBC recording studio with cream of the crop British session musicians and arrangers, no expense was spared.

9 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - FRIDAY'S CHILD - (LP) 
1972


Riding the crest of successive hit-making for Duane Eddy, Sanford Clark, Dean Martin and Nancy Sinatra, the ever-industrious Lee Hazlewood still found time to release his excellent third solo album in 1965. His second solo recording for the Reprise label, Fridays Child indulges his signature country-pop flare and pioneering use of vocal reverb. With electric guitar leads, harp and female backup vocals, the album finds Hazlewood embellishing his arrangements, though some of its strongest moments draw their impact only from his rich timbre. Some artists develop their voice for years; Hazlewoods third album proves it was an innate and irrevocable gift.Weepy guitar leads kick off the title track and Hazlewood takes up the story of twinkling sorrow and bad luck. He often speckles pain with humor, but "Fridays Child" is one of his most purely somber ballads. Elsewhere, with finger snaps, sparse backup vocals and Hazlewoods emotive intonation, the intro of "Houston" alone could carry on entirely a cappella and still endure as a classic. The composition made a hit for Dean Martin, but the Fridays Child version shows Hazlewoods inimitable skill as a vocal stylist. Mostly lacking the dada-esque humor of his first two albums, Fridays Child places Hazlewood in league with the eras greatest traditional songwriters, though one for whom pop conventions were to be bucked and cast aside.

TRACKLISTING: 01. Fridays Child 02. Hutchinson Jail 03. By The Way 04. Four Kinds Of Lonely 05. Houston 06. Sally Was A Good Girl 07. Since Youre Gone 08. A Real Live Fool 09. Im Blue 10. The Fool 11. That Old Freight Train 12. Me And Charlie

10 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - ITS CAUSE AND CURE - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


The mid-to-late '60s were strange days for Lee Hazlewood. Having struck gold as songwriter and vocal foil for Nancy Sinatra, he signed up to MGM as an artist in his own right, and between 1966 and 1968, produced three ambitious solo albums that were eclectic, idiosyncratic, and most of all, unpredictable.It was a happy time for Lee; his music was hot on the charts, he was fully immersed in his collaboration with his muse, Suzi Jane Hokom.The second of his MGM trilogy-1967's peculiarly named Lee Hazlewoodism: Its Cause And Cure-took on countrified French ye-ye ("The Girls In Paris"), a tale of a young bullfighter built on Spanish guitar and choral cowboys ("Jose"), a string-drenched song about the passing of time ("The Old Man And His Guitar"), and a western epic about a Native American tribe ("The Nights"). And that was just the first four tracks. Elsewhere, the honky tonk madness of "Suzi Jane Is Back In Town," the Byrds-like jangle of "In Our Time" and-in the bonus tracks-an instrumental named "Batman" confirm this to be one of Hazlewood's most far-ranging, far-out LPs ever.

12 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - LOVE AND OTHER CRIMES - (LP) 
1972


Originally released in 1968 on Reprise, Lee Hazlewoods Love and Other Crimes merges countrified balladry and lounge styling with light psychedelic pop touches. Perhaps relaxing after his mid-decade semi-stardom as Nancy Sinatras foil, the devout Europhile decamped to Paris and assembled an ace backing band of fabled "Wrecking Crew" sessions players to record Love and Other Crimes. His stream-of-consciousness notes on the LPs back cover suggest Parisian days and nights of endless revelry and debauched excess in a land of unfamiliar languages and customs, but the music is high-class and impeccably performed-another contradictory Hazlewoodism to mark the mans unique career. The lounge atmospherics of "Shes Funny That Way" find Hazlewoods voice deep and resonant, piano runs skittering between each of his lines. At the last minute, the entire band ascends to a booming, ecstatic release, while Hazlewood vows to drown in his own tears. "Rosacoke Street" is a sleazy blues ballad about a host of restless characters, and "She Comes Running" pairs Hazlewoods voice with gusts of harpsichord. On "Pour Man," his voice descends to seemingly impossible depth, while "Morning Dew" treats the standard to a rollicking up-tempo arrangement of swells and bursts. Hazlewood reinforced his own enigmatic mythology even more after Love and Other Crimes, treating all of Europe as his stomping grounds. Love and Other Crimes places Hazlewood at the helm of an incredible ensemble, and synthesizes a bit of everything he lent to others as a producer. The result: one of the most diverse and consummate albums of his singularly eclectic and often confounding career..

13 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - REQUIEM FOR AN ALMOST LADY - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


1971s Requiem for An Almost Lady is a personal statement and one of the heaviest break-up albums of all time. There are no lilting strings, sweeping choirs, or dancing trumpets. The arrangements are stripped down to the raw nerve; Lees emotions are the orchestra here. The listener eavesdrops on a sonic journal of heartbreak. After losing his lady, his record label, and his country, Lee etches his woes to wax."He was a storyteller, thats his music... the storytelling. Thats the thing I fell in love with him for. This final story that we see, the Requiem story, is kind of looking back at a career, I think. Not just a relationship-its his story. I think its authentic and the most revealing, really, because other things are cloaked, cloaked in romanticism, in a way. When you think of Sand and Jose, My Autumns Done Come and Some Velvet Morning... those are stories, theyre stories you make up... theyre fiction. This is a little closer to home, I think." -Suzi Jane Hokom.

TRACKLISTING: 01. I'm Glad I Never... 02. If It's Monday Morning 03. L.a. Lady 04. Won't You Tell Your Dreams 05. I'll Live Yesterdays 06. Little Miss Sunshine (little Miss Rain) 07. Stoned Lost Child 08. Come On Home To Me 09. Must Have Been Something I Loved 10. I'd Rather Be Your Enemy 11. I Just Learned To Run 12. Little Bird (demo)

15 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - SOMETHING SPECIAL - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


The three years spent on MGM Records between 1966 and 1968 were golden ones for Lee Hazlewood. He spent them working with his muse, Suzi Jane Hokom, writing a still-unreleased book, The Quiet Revenge of Elmo Furback, competing with Phil Spector from their respective studios, and coming up with the formula for the "boy/girl" songs for which he'd become famous. In fact, the unflattering portrait on the cover of Something Special did little to hint at how hip this late-flowering talent (he was in his late 30s when "These Boots Are Made For Walkin" made him a star songwriter) had become.The common strand on the MGM trilogy is one of the unexpected happening. They were an ill fit for a major label-experimental, difficult to pigeonhole, and unpredictable. Those descriptors apply nowhere more aptly than Something Special. Where 1966's The Very Special World Of Lee Hazlewood and 1967's Lee Hazlewoodism: Its Cause And Cure had employed an arranger, Billy Strange, and a full orchestra, Something Special stripped things back and brought in a flavor of jazz and blues, complete with gravelly-voiced scatting courtesy of collaborator Don Randi. This sat alongside tracks like "Little War" and "Hands," the kind of late night, acoustic balladeering Hazlewood would later seize for his career-highlight LP, Requiem For An Almost Lady. The sound was that of a stripped-down nightclub jazz/blues/folk combo, fully rejecting the psychedelic music going on all over the world.

17 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - THE LHI YEARS: SINGLES, NUDES & BACKSIDE (1968-71) - (LP) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


With his handlebar moustache and booming baritone, Lee Hazlewood was one of the defining stars of the late '60s. Though he's perhaps best known for his work with Nancy Sinatra (including writing mega-hit 'These Boots Are Made For Walking'), Hazlewood did stunning work away from that particular glamour queen and found latter day champions in Beck, Sonic Youth, and Jarvis Cocker. Collecting the best of Lee's solo songs and duets from his LHI (Lee Hazlewood Industries) imprint. As a true legend of the great American songbook and a rebellious pioneer who left behind a lengthy trail of echo laden pop masterpieces, Lee's influence continues to reverberate today. Between 1968-71, Hazlewood not only released his finest solo work, but produced numerous artists on LHI. From acid-folk and country-rock to pop-psych and soul, LHI issued dozens of long forgotten 45s and LPs. This series will include material from LHI (re-mastered for the first time from the original analog tapes), along with Lee's output for other labels, rarities, unreleased gems, and the films of Torbjorn Axelman. See the sleeve: surrounded by nude girls, each wearing a fake moustache, Hazlewood wears a suit, ever-so-slightly awkwardly playing the role of the '60s playboy.

18 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - THE N.S.V.I.P. (NOT SO VERY IMPORTANT PEOPLE) - (LP) 
1972


Lee Hazlewoods partnership with Reprise Records in the 1960s resulted in timeless hits for Dean Martin and Nancy Sinatra. Throughout the decade, though, the label also released three of the artists most highly regarded solo works: The N.S.V.I.P.s, Fridays Child and Love and Other Crimes. Hazlewoods 1964 sophomore album The N.S.V.I.P.s (Not So Very Important People) is the perfect companion to his classic debut, Trouble Is a Lonesome Town, released the year prior. Setting his signature spoken intros to a new cast of small town eccentrics (perhaps modeled on his childhood locale in Mannford, Oklahoma), this early career high-point presents Hazlewood with all of his singular assets already intact: playful lyrics veering toward the bizarre, wry delivery and wonderfully understated pop-country song craft. "First Street Blues" opens The N.S.V.I.P.s with the saga of Leroy, the once-irascible dragon who converts to a cheerful wino. The small-town drunkards likely story merges with fantastic whimsy in Hazlewoods strange world. Elsewhere, he waxes absurd on "I Had a Friend" about Tarzans deficiencies as a citizen and marital prospect for Jane. He even imparts some simple wisdom about the presidential election on "Save Your Vote for Clarence Mudd." As always, Hazlewoods tongue is firmly rooted in cheek. Still, its easy to just forget that and live inside the poignant songs he creates for each and every one of the not so very important, but absolutely riveting, people-and dragons, too..

TRACKLISTING: 01. First Street Blues 02. I Had A Friend 03. Im Gonna Fly 04. Go Die Big City 05. I Aint Gonna Be 06. Have You Made Any New Bombs Today? 07. Everybody Calls Me Something 08. Save Your Vote For Clarence Mudd 09. I Might Break Even 10. Just Bluesin

19 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - THE VERY SPECIAL WORLD OF... - (CD) 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Lee Hazlewood was a late bloomer. Following a meandering career as a disc jockey, producer, songwriter, label executive and solo artist, Hazlewood hit the jackpot at the ripe age of 37 with "These Boots Are Made For Walkin," the song Nancy Sinatra took to the top of the charts on both sides of the Atlantic. Its success convinced MGM Records that Hazlewood was a bankable star, and they signed him as an artist in his own right the same year. But as a self-described "non-singer" whose cult 1963 debut, Trouble Is A Lonesome Town, was little more than a happy accident, they'd perhaps gotten the wrong end of the stick where Lee was concerned.In three years on the label, Hazlewood delivered three albums and sundry odds and ends, beginning with 1966 album The Very Special World Of Lee Hazlewood. The LP found Hazlewood gunning-in as much as he ever did-for commercial success, blending country, pop, novelty, mariachi, and lounge music into something unusually of-the-moment.

TRACKLISTING: 01. For One Moment 02. When A Fool Loves A Fool 03. Not The Lovin' Kind 04. Your Sweet Love 05. Sand 06. My Autumn's Done Come 07. These Boots Are Made For Walkin 08. I Move Around 09. So Long, Babe 10. Bugles In The Afternoon 11. My Baby Cried All Night Long 12. Lee Hazlewood & Suzi Jane Hokom - Summer Wine (bonus Track)

23 - HAZLEWOOD, LEE - YOU TURNED MY HEAD AROUND (1967-70) - (7") 
LIGHT I/T ATTIC


Eleven 45RPM singles featuring original label/sleeve art, including an ultra-rare Woodchucks picture sleeve. Housed in a gorgeous, custom-made, magnetic flip-top box, and packaged with a special, LHI 45 adapter to play those pressed middles in style. Only 3000 hand-numbered copies produced, worldwide. Includes Lee Hazlewood puzzle, to keep you busy on those lonely nights. All tracks meticulously remastered - theyve never sounded better. Free download card for all songs.Part of the sheer joy of Light In The Attics excavation of Lee Hazlewoods back catalogue has been exploring the output of his own, late 60s label, Lee Hazlewood Industries, which issued dozens of long forgotten 45s and LPs. Whether acid-folk, country-rock, pop-psych or soul, LHI artists were united by the patronage of the underdog hero of 1960s music, the moustachioed maverick Lee Hazlewood. The best of these have been now collected in You Turned My Head Around, a lavishly packaged, 3000-edition box set of eleven 45s, featuring such LHI favorites as Suzi Jane Hokom, Honey Ltd., Kitchen Cinq, Ann-Margret, and of course the undeniable Mr Lee. To say Lee Hazelwood neither sings nor appears on many of these tracks, You Turned My Head Around tells the listener much about the cult singer-songwriter, producer, film star and latter-day cowboy. Like Hazlewoods own output, these are pop songs coloured by sadness, pain and wisdom. Hazlewoods character is there in every long, spiral groove thanks to his stunning production.
