Product Description


For Every Solution There's a Problem, a collection of off-cuts, out-takes and other tracks that have gone astray during the last 40 years of Lee Hazlewood's peripatetic career, is worth at least 10 "Best Of" compilations by most other songwriters. It won't lead to Hazlewood being suddenly showered in wealth and adulation by a world that has thus far neglected him, but it will save those in the know many hours of searching bootleg stalls and MP3 databases for items missing from their collections.

The 11 tracks here (there's an unlisted secret cut, "For My Birthday") are demos, recorded by Hazlewood and long-time sideman Al Casey, to be sent to other artists in the hope that they might be able to do for these songs what Nancy Sinatra did for Hazlewood's "These Boots Are Made For Walking" (Hazlewood's songs have also been covered by Dean Martin, Frank Sinatra, Gram Parsons, Elvis Presley, Einsturzende Neubaten and Billy Ray Cyrus, among many others). They lose nothing by being presented in this stripped-down form--the strengths of Hazlewood's songs were always their simple, insistent melodies and grimly hilarious lyrics, and it is no disrespect to the formidable artists (and Billy Ray Cyrus) who have covered Hazlewood's songs to state that no voice suited them better than his. --Andrew Mueller

I have been listening to Lee for forty odd years now and this album is great. It is pure Lee Hazlewood in every sense and every word. If you are a Lee Hazlewood fan there is just no way that you can miss this,it took me back to my youth and the thoughts I thought when I first heard Lee. It is magical mystical and wonderful and I am young again an I ain't never going to grow up.

Great collection of song which span a twenty year period but which are the original cuts. Al Casey is fantastic on the guitar and, well do I need to repeat myself, Lee's writing will always stay in my memory as songs which were edgy at times can always be enjoyed. Purchase this album and you will understand.

Still Sounds Great 27 Mar 2003
By Kurt Harding - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
After hearing the recent tribute compilation Total Lee! which is quite mesmerizing, I decided to pick up this CD to see what Hazlewood is doing today.
For Every Solution is a little more country than I expected, but after a couple of listens, I started to enjoy it for what it is.
I won't natter on about Lee's past accomplishments, they are well known. I will say that after more than 40 years in the business that he sounds great and that this CD stands tall among his best.
I like Dirtnap Stories, especially the line about dying on Christmas before all the gifts are open. A little macabre, but funny nonetheless. Other favorites are the sexy Your Thunder and Your Lightning, the wry Buying Back, the 50s-sounding throwback Suddenly Tennessee, the clever Dolly Parton's Guitar and the innuendo-laden For My Birthday (as well as the liner notes for it with Lee's implausible explanation for the acronyms POA and BJ).
Long-time collaborator Al Casey provides excellent guitar work to accompany Lee on these songs. For Every Solution is a great CD for alt-country fans or for those curious about what Lee is up to these days. I recommend it!
