Various - Total Lee! The Songs Of Lee Hazlewood download album

A tribute album to Lee Hazlewood.

Many have been called, but few have deserved to be chosen as the subject of a tribute more than the uncompromising Lee Hazlewood. It isn't just that he's written and recorded so many timeless compositions over the years, but that there are so many potential fans - particularly those born after his heyday in the 1960s - yet to discover them (or who may know him only as the mustachioed hipster who once sang a few numbers with go-go boot-era Nancy Sinatra).

Cover information about the songs on the release Total Lee! - The Songs of Lee Hazlewood by various artists: who covered the songs, who sang the originals. SecondHandSongs is building the most comprehensive source of cover song information.

Hazlewood's only glimpse of popular appeal occurred when Nancy Sinatra had a worldwide hit with his "These Boots Are Made For Walking"–a karaoke standard ignored by the 16 artists who appear on this tribute album. Hazlewood occupies a position in posterity similar to that of the Velvet Underground–ignored by the world at large, but disproportionately adored by fellow musicians. be the reason why every male artist on this album finds himself, consciously or not, adopting Hazlewood's signature consumptive drawl: The Webb Brothers, Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley, Calexico and Erlend Oye are more impersonation than interpretation, but nonetheless engaging.

Total Lee' sees 16 contemporary artists recording their own versions of some of Lee's finest songs. The album highlights the extraordinary potency of the songs, that were mostly written to be covered by other artists. This beautifully packaged release contains comprehensive liner notes and Lee's thoughts on all the tribute tracks. Tracks come from : Lambchop, The Webb Brothers, Calexico feat.

Naturally, Total Lee! is ripe for the pickin'. Steve Shelley's Smells Like label began reissuing Hazlewood's albums in 1999, and is now accompanied by Astralwerks' compilation in tribute to the man's career. While the material being paid tribute to is both thought-provoking and playful, Total Lee! unfortunately works better in theory than in practice (like most tributes), though it does thrive a bit more than your typical musical homage. What makes the album far from essential, yet still enjoyable, is the rediscovery of songs that are so heartbreakingly genius, yet so neglected. Rather than just demonstrate their love for a popular artist (see 2000's Badlands: A Tribute to Bruce Springsteen's Nebraska), the musicians on Total Lee! bring a contemporary element to an abandoned body of work that reminds us just how essential it really is.
