Lee Hazlewood – Dark In My Heart (2012)

Country and pop iconoclast Lee Hazlewood was one of the music world’s most irascible geniuses during a long, fruitful career. An Oklahoma Dust Bowl refugee who grew up to become a dedicated Europhile; a production heavyweight who authored success stories for Duane Eddy and Nancy Sinatra but also a recording eccentric who refused to acknowledge mainstream tastes; a songwriter capable of crippling fatalism (“My Autumn’s Done Come”) and playful country corn (“Dolly Parton’s Guitar”), and songs that use elements of both (“Dark in My Heart”); it’s all part of the highly contradictory legend of Hazlewood.

Lee Hazlewood – The LHI Years: Singles, Nudes & Backsides 1968-71 (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.
