Great instrumentals from the legendary Lee Hazlewood – a man you might know for his lyrical wit on record, but also a studio genius with a real ear for an electric guitar! Keep in mind that one of Lee's big claims to fame was his early productions for twangy guitar giant
Duane Eddy – and know that in the years after those hits, Hazlewood still spent plenty of time in the studio with other instrumental acts, too – a good deal of whom then also provided the backings for Lee's own vocal records! This collection finally brings together some of the best of Lee Hazlewood's instrumental moments – a wealth of raunchy guitar numbers, surf instrumentals, and lots of other cool cuts that make wonderful use of echo, reverb, and other special early studio effects. The package has the usual wonderful Ace Records notes and attention to detail – and titles include "Moovin & Groovin" by The Rhythm Rockers, "Stalkin" by Duane Eddy, "The Stinger" by Al Casey, "Baja" by Jack Nitzsche, "Salty" by Tony Castle & The Raiders, "Guitar Man" by The Lively Ones, "El Aguila" by The Astronauts, "The Phantom Driver" by Hal Blaine & The Young Cougars, "Angry Generation" by Dick Dale & His Del-Tones, "Desi's Drums" by Dino Desi & Billy, "Zapata" by Jack Nitzsche, "Bo Dacious" by The Whisk Kids, "Some Velvet Morning" by Afro Blues Quintet, "These Boots Are Made For Walking" by Billy Strange, and "Muchacho" by Lee Hazlewood's Woodchucks.
