Mustachioed cheese-dog Lee Hazlewood is best known for his collaborations, noteably with Nancy Sinatra. Here he is performing Nancyless, but there are still plenty of duets to croon along to. His eerie barritone voice and oddball production brings comparisons with Serge Gainsbourg, but he's all about the pop, albeit serious pop. And weird record sleeves. I mean look at it, you want it right?

This is ace. It's Lee Hazlewood doing what Lee Hazlewood does best: Fully orchestrated country-pop that is dreamy and bordering on psychedelic. "Califia (Stone Rider)" starts things off and is equal to some of the great stuff he did with Nancy Sinatra. A lot of this album is comprised of his 1971 "Cowboy in Sweden" album and "No Train To Stockholm" and "What's More I Don't Need Her" are the best of that bunch. Whilst there's nothing to match the sublime "Some Velvet Morning" on here, it comes close in places.
