1 - 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.
