400 Miles From L.A. 1955-56

Light in the Attic Records is proud to continue it's Lee Hazlewood archival series with 400 Miles From L. A. 1955-56, a collection of previously unknown intimate recordings, never intended for release. Lee sings, plays guitar and even presses the record button on the tape machine. These are rural sketches and small town dreams,

captured in an innocent time before the path ahead was clear.

Phoenix, Arizona 1955...a twenty-five year old disc jockey and fledgling songwriter, Lee Hazlewood, is trying to break into the music industry. He takes Greyhound bus trips to Los Angeles to pitch songs, only to be rejected each time. Undeterred, Lee starts a record label called Viv Records. Running the label out of his house, Lee finds

the artists, writes the songs, produces the sessions, arranges the pressings of the records and handles distribution.

Recently discovered tapes in the Viv Records archive yielded an unbelievable find, the earliest known recordings of Hazlewood singing his songs... Lee's first demo! The mysterious and bountiful tapes featured Lee singing early unheard compositions and a complete first draft of his Trouble Is A Lonesome Town song cycle that would become his first official solo album in 1963.
