LP - Lee Hazlewood - Cowboy In Sweden
Free to ramble in the post “Boots” days, a newly minted Lee Hazlewood (Legendary Arizona deejay, NANCY SINATRA/DUANE EDDY collaborator/songwriter) struck out for Europe, sampling Spain, France and Germany before landing in Sweden, a locale which would inspire some of his strongest work. His key artistic associate in Sweden was the film director TORBJORN AXELMAN, and together the two masterminded the film and album project Cowboy In Sweden. The album went gold in Sweden and was a precursor to their next collaborative masterpiece, A House Safe For Tigers. Now reissued by Light In The Attic to give you Lee’s trademark singular synthesis of cowboy rambles, rockabilly rhythms and symphonic pop. Joined by vocalists NINA LIZELL and SUSIE JANE HOKOM (of the INTERNATIONAL SUBMARINE BAND led by GRAM PARSONS) who lend their heavenly voices to the sophisticated humor and raw subject matter of Hazlewood’s material. Songs of hard luck, pragmatic politics and odes to love fueled by dark, poetic lyrics and esoteric images declaimed with wit, irony and wry honesty. One of Hazlewood’s finest and most original offerings—a true gem in uncut form. Includes previously unheard versions of "Pray Them Bars Away" and "Easy & Me" as a bonus. LP housed in gatefold jackets.
