Lee Hazlewood: Movin' On (CD)

(Ace Records) 12 tracks Polydor Sweden 1977 with 16 page booklet

As the album’s original sleeve notes suggest “whatever your listening pleasure, you’ll find something on this album you like”. Several songs are straightforward country tunes recalling the music Lee made when first starting out while others are slick, orchestrated lounge ballads. Lee re-recorded four songs from his 1969 album “Forty” (Randy Newman’s ‘Let’s Burn Down The Cornfield’ and ‘Wait Till Next Year’; ubiquitous crooner standards ‘It Was A Very Good Year’ and ‘Paris Bells’) – while both Hazlewood originals ‘Come On Home To Me’ and ‘LA Lady’ appeared previously on 1971’s “Requiem To An Almost Lady”. Two songs (the straightforward ‘Mother Country Music’ and the comedy country of ‘Kung Fu You’) were written by Joe Nixon, an aspiring country singer-songwriter Hazlewood met in Los Angeles at the beginning of the 1970s. Lee helped produce an album of Joe’s that is amongst the Holy Grail of Hazlewood collectables as only 100 copies were pressed.

“Lee was a good guy,” says Janne Schaffer, one of the guitarists who appeared on the record. “I’d previously played on another session for him [possibly 1976’s “20th Century Lee”] and admired him a lot because of his work with Duane Eddy. He was a very cool guy, very sophisticated. He didn’t speak Swedish so everything was done in English but I don’t recall him saying a lot. He had a special kind of charisma – let’s say an authority – and that’s my abiding memory of working with him.”

Janne and several of the other musicians who worked on “Movin’ On” were also employed to play on Abba sessions and this has lent them their own cult status.

A British connection with “Movin’ On” comes via Charles Davis, Lee’s manager at the time. Davis, now retired in Folkestone, recalls his time managing Hazlewood with great affection. “I was married to a Swedish woman so living in Stockholm and running my own business. There was one English pub in Stockholm and I used to drink there and that’s how I got to meet this gravel-voiced American. I had no idea that he was an entertainer initially, he was just very good company. One day he told me that he wanted to perform some live shows in Stockholm and I told him that was a good idea. He said he needed a manager to organize things and would I manage him? I said that I wouldn’t be any good as I had no experience of managing anyone, but he insisted I could do it and that he would help me." When Lee was first living in Hollywood he had booked rhythm and blues entertainers, including the Platters, so he knew what to expect.

Davis recalls “Movin’ On” being well received in Sweden yet both he and Lee were getting restless. Lee would soon move on, living in Germany, Spain and Ireland before returning to the US – while Charles wanted to return to the UK. They lost touch and did not meet again until Lee’s triumphant concert at the Royal Festival Hall in 2004. Charles Davis has been enormously helpful, finding rare pictures of Lee for the booklet and a poster. He also provided the master tapes which Ace's transfer specialist, Graham Sharpe, confirmed had never been played since the orginal LP had been cut. These pristine reels have been beautifully EQ'd and the sound sparkles.

Lee Hazelwood

Lee Hazelwood, born in 1929 in Mannford, Oklahoma, went to Southern Methodist University before the Army took him to Korea. On his discharge in 1953, he became one of the most popular deejays in Phoenix, Arizona, where he broadcast C&W music locally. In 1955, he branched out into songwriting and began dabbling in record production after experimenting in his radio studio. His production of 'The Fool', by Sanford Clark, sold 800,000 copies on Dot Records in 1956 and Dot subsequently signed him as a record pro-ducer for a year, but he failed to make another hit. In 1957, he teamed up with entrepreneur Lester Sill and they formed the Jamie label in Philadelphia with a distribu-tor and Dick Clark of Bandstand fame.

Through Bandstand, they launched Duane Eddy with the 'twangy' guitar sound which made him a star. In three and a half years, Hazelwood sold 20 million Duane Eddy records which despite their crass commerciality were the earliest 'sound' productions in rock. In 1961, Hazelwood and Sill formed the Gregmark label which scored with Phil Spector-produced records by the Paris Sisters (Sill and Hazelwood had earlier run two less successful labels called Trey and East-West). They parted company in 1962 and Hazelwood formed an unsuccessful label, Eden.

In 1964, he left the business but the following year, Jimmy Bowen at Reprise asked him to produce the bubblegum trio of Dino, Desi and Billy for whom he pro-duced four consecutive hits. He also began recording Nancy Sinatra at Reprise and established her as a potent chart-force with 'These Boots Are Made For Walkin" and re-corded countrified duets, like 'Jackson', with her. In the late Sixties, be ran his own LHI label in Hollywood but lack of success ended the project.

Always something of a bohemian, Hazelwood — now in semi-retirement — commutes between homes in Sweden, Paris and Los Angeles.
