Special 2LP gatefold reissue of Lee Hazlewood's debut solo album.
Lee Hazlewood is the famed producer best known for his work with Duane Eddy and Nancy Sinatra (Some Velvet Morning, Summer Wine).
Re-mastered from the original tapes, this is the first time Trouble Is a Lonesome Town has been available in its original mono mix since the 1960s. Presented as a double LP with 15 bonus tracks and an eight page booklet, this is an essential purchase for Hazlewood fans or anyone curious about about the man before the mustache.
Originally released in 1963, Trouble… finds the bohemian cowboy sketching out a vivid picture of a backwater place named Trouble, where trouble with a small 't' is never far away. "Trouble is little and it's lonesome," he says, on the title track, "you won't find it on any map, but you can take three steps in any direction and you're there." Lee says plenty on the album. The first voice you hear is Hazlewood's spoken-word narration. It's a format the singer-songwriter would revisit frequently, introducing his stirring songs with a touch fireside storytelling in the rich, Texan drawl he'd tried hard to lose during years he was struggling to make it as an aspiring radio DJ.
Second LP features rarities and unreleased material from this period - a five star album and an absolute essential for any record collector - Chelsea (Marbecks Staff)
