Something Special = Digipak = (CD)
Lee Hazlewood's years with MGM Records between 1966 and 1968 were a golden time. With his muse Suzi Jane Hokom, he wrote a still-unpublished book called "The Quiet Revenge Of Elmo Furback" and competed out of the studio with Phil Spector, inventing the formula for the "boy/girl" songs that would make him famous. Indeed, the unflattering cover of "Something Special" did nothing to show how hip his late-blooming (he was in his late 30s when he became a songwriting star with "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'") would be. The releases were too experimental for a major label, didn't fit into any pigeonhole, and were utterly unpredictable. While 1966's "The Very Special World Of Lee Hazlewood" and "Lee Hazlewoodism.... " from 1967 had featured an arranger in the form of Billy Strange and a full orchestra, "Something Special" took a whole step back and smacked of jazz and blues with husky scatting from collabo rateur Don Randi.
