Shazam! - And Other Instrumentals Written By Lee Hazlewood CD
Shazam! features two-dozen vocal-free (give or take the occasional rebel yell etc) nuggets written by the great Lee Hazlewood.
Star of the show is twangmaster Duane Eddy with three great tracks: the title number, the menacing Stalkin' and This Town, a lesser-known 45 from Hazlewood's stint writing and producing gems at Reprise Records.
Other key artists include guitar wiz Al Casey, and Dick Dale with his axe-shredding version of Angry Generation, not forgetting ace surf combos The Astronauts, The Ventures, The Lively Ones and The Challengers.
Accompanying booklet includes in-depth liner notes by the guys from Pipeline magazine.
