Total Lee 2 - More Songs Of Lee Hazlewood

It’s been a year now since Lee passed away and I glimpsed a number of his releases in my local JB store, so if you live here in Aus there’s no excuse – go out and buy them.
A little harder to find these days might be the compilation Total Lee which is a great release on its own with some great bands who put their spin on the Hazlewood tunes. Now here’s my take on a second collection, songs that sit well against each, some a little more obscure than others but all show an appreciation for Lee himself and on this his anniversary is there any better way to pay tribute than to listen to his songs in a different light. By the way Ed Kuepper is included simply because I think he’s fantastic with anything he does but you can be the judge in this instance. Enjoy.

Also there are plenty more covers for a 3rd and 4th compilation if there is interest.

Was thrilled to find this as I love the original Total Lee compilation - sadly the links are dead. Would truly appreciate anyone knowing a link to this and the other live Lee content from this site
