Lee Hazlewood returns


New album! And a New York Times profile to back it up! Who’d ever have thought that would happen? I figured the guy was lost in the Swedish countryside (or maybe more recently, the Phoenix suburbs). Now he’s not only surfacing for air but keeping above water level for an extended stay. Dig it. Album’s pretty good, too–it’s no “Love and Other Crimes,” but it’s definitely in the spirit of his classic work. “It’s Nothing to Me” alone is a standout–a reworking of the Harry Johnson song that I first heard on the country comp LP “God Less America.”
