LEE HAZLEWOOD INDUSTRIES ::You Turned My Head Around 1967-70:: Light in the Attic Records:: $55:: By 1967, Lee Hazlewood had amassed enough cultural capital, through the success of his work with Nancy Sinatra and Duane Eddy, to turn his mustachioed cowboy pop into a cottage industry. Marketing a hip wistfulness in a Day-Glo pop market wound up being an uphill battle. In the rearview, though, it would appear that Hazlewood and Co. were inventing something called "country rock," but imbued with Hazlewood's uniquely warped musical sense. This vinyl-only set boxes 11 singles by LHI obscurities like the Nico-esque Lynn Castle, acid-tinged rockers Kitchen Cinq and Honey LTD, and Nancy Sinatra sound-alike Suzi Jane Hokom.
