I love the track The Night Before, and all the duets with Nancy.

I've never found many albums in stores, but Amazon is a good place to buy from.

I have this one which is, I believe, two album releases on one CD.

Cowboy in Sweden is one of the best CDs ever made.. perhaps because Vem kan segla reminds me of my childhood

Cowboy in Sweden is very good indeed, possibly his best - but I suggest you would start with "Trouble is a Lonesome Town" which is a concept album and a good introduction to Hazlewood's surreal country tunes, sub-Johnny Cash bass voice, and above all his hilarious and wry humour - he was a great man and I miss him hugely :cry:

Yes there are three lee and nancy and all are really good fun, i think "Nancy and Lee 3" which only came out about five years ago is really good.

Agree 100%. Nancy and Lee 3 isn't always easy to get hold of (I bought mine on Amazon though) but well worth it. Lee was always one of my favourites when I was growing up. I was real sad when he died. That amazing voice and he wrote beautiful songs too. In fact - rather like someone else we know....... :) :wink:

It was originally only released in certain countries, which was typical Lee. Even now there are seriously obscure albums of his that you have to live in places like Denmark or Finland to get hold of :wink:

I remember listening to his duets with Nancy when i was a kid.
My parents were big fans.My sister got a hold of Summer Wine
and played it about 500 times over. :roll: Drove us all nuts.
I ordered the album off Amazon not too long ago.It was a pain
to track down but it was worth it.He was an excellent songwriter.
He also had some finely tuned handlebars. :thumright:

That Nancy + Lee Album with 'Sand' on is an absolute must.

Light In The Attic are supposedly preparing Lee Hazlewood reissues for spring 2012 release including some LHI material, all supposedly drawn from master tapes. :shock:

They've posted a short bit about it on their website with a one minute sound sample of a previously unreleased track.
