A reissue of the 1966 album The Very Special World Of Lee Hazlewood, the first of three LEE HAZLEWOOD recorded for MGM. The LP found Hazlewood gunningâ~@”in as much as he ever didâ~@”for commercial success, blending country, pop, novelty, mariachi, and lounge music into something unusually of-the-moment. Lushly orchestrated and half-sung, half-spoken in a way that Hazlewood made all his own, the album collected solo versions of songs made famous by Nancy Sinatra and others (“Sand,” “Boots,” “So Long Babe,” “Summer â~@”included as a bonus duet with SUZI JANE HOKOM) alongside some of his career-best solo compositions. It’s a record of extremes: “When A Fool Loves A Fool” is as light and throwaway as anything he ever laid down, while the wistful “My Autumn’s Done Come” (sample lyric: “Let those I-don’t-care days come in, I’m tired of holding my stomach in”) is as raw and honest. LP housed in deluxe gatefold jackets.
