Elusive Dreams: A Mixtape By The Cowboys From Sweden (2008)

Incase you were wondering who are The Cowboys From Sweden? Well, I believe that we are the only Lee Hazlewood cover band in the world (to my knowledge). ...And if you aren't already familiar with Lee Hazlewood, Well, I would recommend his 1970 album "Cowboy in Sweden" (from where we got our name) to start with. The Cowboys From Sweden are Robbie Augspurger and Eric Lee along with some occasional help from Eric Dexter and Ellen Werner. I plan to post our recordings here soon, in the mean time you can download individual tracks from or virb page ( Keep your eyes open for our version of "Leather & Lace" coming soon.

Elusive Dreams is a rare look into the musical tastes of The Cowboys From Sweden. We would like to dedicate this Mixtape to the memory of Lee Hazlewood who died last August. Lush cinematic emotional terrain, highly recommended!!!

I've downloaded your mixtape, and am really enjoying it. I was working on something then recognized the Axelrod sound immediately while listening to the Electric Prunes.
Great selection, very eclectic and smooth.
