✨✧ VariousSon Of A Gun & More – From The Lee Hazlewood Songbook ... CD
Ace (UK), 2016. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
One of the most comprehensive sets we've ever seen to look at the legacy of the legendary Lee Hazlewood – and one of the few to focus on the impact he's had on the 21st Century! Lee's songs have become the stuff of legend over the years – not just his own recordings, but classic tracks sung by the Sinatra family members, Dean Martin, and countless others – who are usually features on similar sets under the Hazlewood banner. But this package goes those one better – and looks mostly at material from the past 20 years – plus a few older songs – showing that, if anything, the present century has given Lee's music even more power than ever in the hands of diverse talents like these. As with more "vintage" sets from Ace Records, the presentation is great – a lot of tracks, and very detailed notes that really like the Hazelwood heritage to all this recent music. Titles include "A Cheat" by Jarvis Cocker & Richard Hawley, "Some Velvet Morning" by Primal Scream & Kate Moss, "First Street Blues" by Mick Harvey, "I'm Glad I Never" by Jesus & Mary Chain, "Sand" by Holly Golightly, "Look At That Woman" by Gallon Drunk, "You Turned My Head Around" by Dean & Britta, "I'd Rather Be Your Enemy" by Boyd Rice, "Summer Wine" by Ville Valo & Natalia Avelon, "Paris Summer" by Frances Ruffelle, "My Autumn's Done Come" by Mark Morriss, "No Train To Stockholm" by Dan Michaelson & The Coastguards, and "Long Black Train" by Thriftstore Masterpiece with Frank Black. Also includes vintage songs – "She Comes Running" by Waylon Jennings, "The Man Who Made An Angel Cry" by Loy Clingman, "Lady Bird" by Virgil Warner & Suzi Jane Hokom, and "Friday's Child" by Billie Dearborn.

✨✧ VariousSwingbillies – Hillbilly & Western Swing On Modern/Colonial/Flair 1947 to 1952 ... CD
Modern/Ace (UK), Late 40s/Early 50s. New Copy ... Out Of Stock
That's no typo in the title – as the unique phrase "Swingbillies" is a perfect summation of the set – which mixes together rare postwar work from the West Coast scene – cool cuts that are partly western swing, partly early country – and which almost stand as a precursor to the Bakersfield years to come! The music is all from the catalog of Modern Records – an imprint best known for R&B and blues, but one that also really had its ear to the ground for all the new sounds bubbling up in LA after the war – sounds that included a big influx of hillbilly styles that hit the coast in the hands of folks moving westward for jobs and success. Most artists here are relatively obscure, but their work resonates with qualities that both matches the big western swing stars of the period, and some of the excellent early country on Capitol Records – which might be a good comparison to the strength of this set. CD features 28 titles in all – and cuts include "You Just Wait & See" by Chuck Guillory, "Turn That Gun Around" by Rocky Morgan, "Those Wonderful Days With You" by Joe Bean, "I Knew That You Were Foolin All Along" by Jimmie Dolan, "Holiday For Guitar" by Jimmy Bryant, "The Honey Jump (part 1)" by Jody Webb, "Operation Blues" by Homer Clemons, "Big Texas #2" by Papa Cairo, "San Antonio Blues" by Cliff Bruner, and "My Heart Lied To Me" by Ted Shelton.
