Lee Hazlewood: The Box Set | Roky Erickson's Solo Masterworks

V/A - There’s A Dream I’ve Been Saving: Lee Hazlewood Industries 1966 – 1971

LITA 109 Box Set (Standard Edition | Deluxe Edition)

Available: November 26, 2013

It has been a slow train coming, but at last the day has come. After 7 intense years in the making, we are proud to announce our long awaited and by far most lavishly expansive packaged project to date: There’s A Dream I’ve Been Saving, commemorating the complete legacy of Lee Hazlewood Industries from 1966-1971. For more than a year now, we have been reissuing the solo work of this true American moustachioed maverick. Beyond restored versions of Lee’s debut Trouble is a Lonesome Town and the soundtrack A House Safe for Tigers, the lid has also been lifted on the rich, little-explored archives of the label Lee Hazlewood Industries (LHI), when Hazlewood was svengali and super-producer to a stable full of brilliant artists.

This landmark box set is the ultimate artifact for Lee Hazlewood heads new and old, containing a lavishly packaged, expansive 172-page LP sized hard cover book, packed with rare beautiful pictures of Lee and his artists, the full story of the LHI label, interviews with Lee and Suzi Jane Hokum, re-assessments of key Hazlewood albums, artist profiles for the label’s roster, and lovingly written by renowned L.A. music journalist/novelist Jessica Hundley.. But every good book deserves a soundtrack and in this case it comes in the form of a four-CD anthology of the LHI label, along with the never-before-released 1970 film Cowboy in Sweden on DVD. The CDs feature Hazlewood songs familiar and less so; surprising covers, doleful duets and little heard LHI gold.
