Lee Hazlewood-Requiem for an Almost Lady

In the mood for some serious drinkin'? May I suggest uncorking this fine vintage. Hazlewood's smokey croon is the companion for those late nights with nothing to do. It's not going to cheer you up any, but its blend of country/pop/psych/orch is a soothing sound. Sure, it's bitter and can be pretty bleak at times, but it's also pretty. This dude was a true original and forward thinking motherfucker. Sure he gets some hype (Sonic Youth's praise) but he still deserves more.
