“There were times when there was nothing but time”

Lee Hazlewood – “If It’s Monday Morning” from Requiem for an Almost Lady (1971)

It’s dreary and wet in W. Michigan on this first anniversary of my marriage (which has not been dreary or too wet at all).

I just picked up this album (used!) and have become a fast and fervent Hazlewood convert.  He’s like a funnier, less suicidal Leonard Cohen.  And I love his spoken intros to each song on this album.

Check him out

  1. Very nice. He does sound like L. Cohen. I happen to like Cohen’s suicidal tendencies, but I guess that isn’t everyone’s bailiwick.
