The third and final chapter of the Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood trilogy was released three years prior to Hazlewood’s 2007 passing. While it would be easy to be dubious about classic artists pining for past glory, Nancy & Lee 3 reveals the duo’s musical chemistry to have aged quite well. The opener “Goin’ Down Rockin’” introduced Sinatra’s sultry singing style (her voice having aged like a good wine) before Hazlewood’s grizzled growl pipes in (his voice having aged like top shelf scotch). “Gypsies & Indians” really taps into the duo’s penchant for infusing classic country and western tunes with well-arranged baroque pop and an instantly likeable duet sung over the top. The bittersweet “Strangers, Lovers, Friends” is a beautiful ballad punctuated by lilting piano notes, sweeping strings and Spanish guitar. They give Shelly King’s “Texas Blue Moon” all the elegance of a Phil Spector mix while “Pack Saddle Saloon” recalls Hazlewood’s 1969 collaboration with Ann- Margret, The Cowboy & The Lady.
Nancy & Lee is an excellent CD
After not recording together for over 30 years, Nancy & Lee 3 is a real must have. True to Nancy & Lee form, the music is delivered with passion. A bit country and a bit rock. My favorites are Texas Blue Moon, Both Hungry Years tracks, Goin Down Rockin' & Barricades & Brickwalls. There are no "bad" songs here. Thanks for releasing this!!
An overlooked classic
This Cd saw limited release overseas. I will never understand why a label didn't snap this one up and release it in the US. Regardless, the magic of Nancy and Lee is still there after too long between projects. This duo created magic in the studio that actually allowed the listener to hear the friendship in their voices. Both Nancy and Lee are so closely associated with the smash record of "Boots", that I feel many are missing some amazing recordings. This album launches with Goin Down Rockin' and it's obvious the two are vocally better than ever. They move through various styles of music with equal success. Just two highpoints are Is Making A Little Love Out of the Question and The Hungry Years.(I prefer the solo mix..however they are both great) This is not a cd to just pick a few tracks. You can listen from start to finish and be very entertained. If you are a lover of pop music, you need this project. I'm thankful that it is receiving a full release. Although we have loved the album since it's release, it's time to share this with the rest of the world. Buy it and enjoy!
A Pleasant Surprise
Nancy & Lee 3 is a perfect example of the value of I Tunes Genius. It was released in May, 2004, but until today I was not aware that a third album by Nancy and Lee was available. I downloaded the album and like every track. My favorites are "She Won't," "Texas Blue Moon," and "Is Making Love...." There is something about Lee Hazlewood's gravelly voice that I like, and his voice blends very well with Nancy's.
