Song Of The Day: Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra: “Some Velvet Morning” (1967)

Let’s take a minute to remember Lee Hazlewood, the maverick Sixties pop producer and performer, who passed away ten years ago today. He is credited with helping develop Rock & Roll recording techniques in the mid-Fifties, but he is most famous for being the driving force behind Nancy Sinatra’s landmark Sixties hits “These Boots Were Made For Walkin’” and “Something Stupid”. Hazlewood was always a bit of an outsider whether he was in a pop, country or Rock & Roll studio, always going against the grain. This track is a legendary, crazy-ass piece of music, covered dozens of times by artists including Vanilla Fudge, Primal Scream and Goldfrapp, that shows just how out there he could get. The guy was a true original.
