even more lee — realy!

We interrupt the Soviet broadcast to bring you three (3!) more precious pieces of the Hazlewood OOP puzzle, thanks to the selfless efforts of our good friend Henrik:
and I must say these have already become some of my favourite Hazlewood recordings.
There are a few familiar tracks here but they are different recordings, and to finally get to hear Lee live is a delicious treat — his dry irony glows forth.

I'm really glad to be able to spread the wonderful music of Lee Hazlewood. Those three albums are my favourites too, just listen to "Hello in there" (Stockholm Kid) and "A better place to be" (I'll be your baby tonight). The fact that LH has spent some good time here in Sweden is just great!

The spoken part in "Soul's island" is in Swedish (if you didn't already figured that out), and is about Själsö, the small island that Lee named "Soul's island". It's a small island belonging to Gotland

I haven't got "The Shacklefords sing", but I promise to upload it as soon as I find it.

ah, Sverige...
blonde & beautiful one day, AND the next!
Besides the clichés, I have an interest in your historico-cultural heritage. My dark-age musical group perform Vem kan segla as a Viking tune, with benflöit and munharpa...
I've only been there for a few hours, on a train from Harparanda to Trondheim.
I promise to return one day.
in a longship

by the way, I didn't post The Cowboy & The Lady because it's still available and I'm trying to focus on the out-of-print material. But thanks for the link, it's there for whoever needs it...

Thanks a lot for these.
Has anyone got "Gypsies and Indians", his 1993 collaboration with Finland's Anna Hanski? I think that one is pretty rare too.

I've got it, I'll upload it later today.

Here's "Gypsies & Indians" (1993):

...and "Again" (1972):

The German, Swedish and UK version of this album were titled "Did you ever?", same songs - different running order.

Having discovered Lee Hazlewood through Cowboy in Sweden, which I found a few months ago on Twilight Zone ( I have become hopelessly addicted to the fellow, so much so that I can rarely bring myself to listen to anything else (except perhaps a few Nancy Sinatra albums). Quite simply nothing else will do. How does one wean oneself off a serious Lee Hazlewood addiction? I know this might not be the right place to ask, seeing as you guys must bear some of the responsibility for my condition. But since waking up the other day to a revamped version of Lee and Nancy on the radio (, which, in my vulnerable half-awake condition, crept deep into my subconscious, I have had to stop myself from approaching random young ladies on the street and offering to take off my silver spurs. I'm worried that before long I'll grow a moustache and start sporting leather jackets the colour of baby poo. God, I might even feel compelled to go and live in Sweden. What then?

Now it's my turn to say THANK YOU! I actually didn't have "Troublemaker" on MP3 (only the live version from 2002 (?)), only on vinyl. :))

Wow! What an amazing offering of Lee Hazlewood. I've been searching for these and am so excited to see these here. I bought the "House Safe For Tigers" video a few years ago only to find out it was in PAL format, NOT NTSC. I finally got the transfer done and ended up paying about $70 or so to finally see the film. All to say I'm a big fan of Lee and am so glad to get these albums. Thanks!!!

Fantastic Hazlewood posts! I, too, have been a big fan of his for awhile now. Does anybody know where to get a DVD or Mpeg of the 1970 Cowboy in Sweden film? I know that there was a DVD-R of it being sold on a site before, but I can't locate this thing anywhere now. Anybody have it? Thank you for any info,

Do you still have the "House safe for tigers" VHS?

You can download Cowboy in Sweden from, just search for "Hazlewood". They are splitted into songs, but i think it is the complete video. Most of his albums are there too.

You can buy a copy of several of the videos here:

Where is the live medley gone

Oh, I wish that I had discovered Lee Hazlewood earlier, I haven't had the chance to see him live...

In "The Stockholm Kid", the live medley is track 5, 8.46 mb. Sure you downloaded the right file?

You don't have any material from the concert in Germany? Tickets, photos, recordings, magazine ads - anything?

Henrik, thanks for the Cowboy in Sweden info. And thanks again for the wonderful shares! I was able to download Baby and Safe for Tigers all right, but I'm having trouble unzipping the Stockholm Kid. Does anyone else have this issue? Seems to be track 5 that it's having problems with...

I will try to get it a second time
but track five was gone when I opened the ZIP.

I will take a look if I still have something from that concert. No photos but the ticket I think.
greetings Uwe

I don't know if i asked that
but wasn't there a gypsy and indian version with an intro first.
I know that on nancy and lee 3 is no intro and the posted version here had no intro too.

Hmm, you mean a spoken intro? I don't recognize that. Someone else?

Hey there folks. It doesn't seem that you were much concerned about my predicament, but no worries, I'm better now. A week of listening to nothing but Joy Division, the Cure and Lou Reed's Metal Machine Music did the trick most admirably. And what's more, I now I feel most justified in returning to a little Lee Hazlewood to assuage the feelings of suicidal despair I forced myself to endure. But my little sojourn into goth, noise and general 80s gloom did get me to thinking... What was Lee up to in the 80s? Did he really allow an entire decade and more to go by with literally no creative output? If so, what did he do instead?
