Lee Hazlewood 1929-2007

Lee Hazlewood 1929-2007

Lee Hazlewood passed away in Las Vegas at the age of 78 a few hours ago. The baritone-voiced songwriter/producer’s career was filled with too many brilliant titles to list, (but I will mention his ur-instrumental Baja because the instrumental stuff always gets short shrift.)

The blog Presbytere has a great clip of a 2006 interview with Lee, telling the story of the recording of Some Velvet Morning. Lee drops enormous names like Hal Blaine and Billy Strange left and right as if these were the people he worked with all the time. Oh wait. They were.

We lost a giant.

Lee appears in his 1970 Swedish Cowboy in Sweden TV special performing No Train To Stockholm

EDIT: Great obit in New York Night Train
