Music Recommendation: Lee Hazlewood — “Movin”

BRUCE’S RECOMMENDATION OF BANDCAMP MUSIC 

Music: “Movin” from the album CRUISIN’ FOR SURF BUNNIES

Artist: Lee Hazlewood 

Artist Location: Stockholm, Sweden

Info: Lee Hazlewood (1929-2007) is a country and pop singer who performed with Nancy Sinatra in the 1960s and 1970s. But he did spend a decade living in Sweden, where one of his projects was writing music to fill an album of surf instrumentals.

“In Hazlewood’s tape archives a tape marked ‘Woodchucks’ was discovered, the pseudonym for his ‘fake’ instrumental group (which was actually the legendary studio band known as the Wrecking Crew). […] The Wrecking Crew recordings — presented here by Light in the Attic as ‘Cruisin’ for Surf Bunnies by Lee Hazlewood’s Woodchucks’ — were conceived by Hazlewood as demos, but the sound quality and performances are impressive and stand up well among similar recordings from the era.” — Chris Ingalls, PopMatters

Price: $1 (USD) for track; $9.99 (USD) for 12-track album

Genre: Surf
