The late LEE HAZLEWOOD is one of R&R and Pop's most iconic cult figures, with a huge reputation as a producer, songwriter and singer.
This 35-track compilation presents an eclectic selection of rarities, juxtaposed alongside a handful of his early hits.
Hazelwood's early productions are particularly collectable, notably his own recordings.
Included herein are his five earliest known demo's, from 1955/56, which highlight his distinctive, resonant baritone.
Also included are the sides he recorded billed as Mark Robinson and The Shacklefords, plus his near-legendary 'Girl On Death Row'
Apart from Hazlewood himself, featured artists include Duane Eddy, Sanford Clark, Al Casey, Ray Sharpe, The Sharps, Barbara Dane and Ramona King.
