RCA victor LSP 4645.

Sunday morning fragile fare. Shake out some Alka Seltzer.

Not nearly as saccharine as "Did You Ever ?" from the same album, which always makes me recall the deranged rolling-eyed version by Benny Hill.

"As the story goes, Lee "I move around" Hazlewood, lived in Sweden in the early 70's, Paris, and London, continuing to record albums here and there. Nancy and Lee were reunited in 1971 to record 'Nancy and Lee again'.."

Written by Dolly Parton. As yet, I have still to hear 2004's "Nancy & Lee: 3".

This damn cold virus continues to debilitate me.

You may be more familiar with Joseph Szabo as the photographer responsible for the image of the young girl smoking on the jacket to Dinosaur Jr.'s 1991 LP, "Green Mind".

NANCY SINATRA & LEE HAZLEWOOD: DOWN FROM DOVER from " Nancy & Lee... Again" LP (RCA) 1972 (US)

Is that chick holding a picture of you, ib?

This is excellent. I wasn't expecting Lee's strained efforts.

ib said...

Yeah! He audibly struggles to achieve a suitably deep register on this one.

Dolly Parton is a killer songwriter, too.
