Boutique label Light In The Attic have announced a new pressing of Lee Hazelwood’s 13 for release Jan. 13th. LITA, perhaps best known for gorgeous Rodriguez and Serge Gainsbourg reissues and the sublime Native North American box set from 2016, have already done masterful new versions of seven Hazelwood classics including the recent edition of the hereto elusive Cowboy In Sweden. Now, they turn their focus to a Hazelwood orphan from 1972.
The story behind 13 is a fascinating one. The album was written with the intent of having Lee Hazelwood Industries' staff producer Larry Marks perform vocal duties. The story from the press release tells the tale.
13 is available for pre-order right now. A "Gold" edition of 300 is also available in limited quantities. Both vinyl editions of the album will feature download cards with bonus tracks, outtakes and demos. Liner notes by Larry Marks and LHI staff are included as well.
