New Link! Lee Hazlewood - Cowboy In Sweden (1970)

Hello Everybody! Today I've got a special treat for you. A while back someone requested that I repost Cowboy in Sweden, but I was waiting for this rip from my buddy. This is a vinyl rip of the original 1970 pressing of the album and my friend and I both agree, it is probably the best sounding rip of the album currently available (next to the original vinyl it's self). A few years back a label called Smells Like Records reissued this album at a very poor quality, and I heard that even Lee (RIP) wasn't too happy with the sound quality. It sounds like they did a vinyl rip and mixed out the crackle by turning down all the high frequencies. That was the way I first heard this album, so to my surprise when we finally tracked down a few original copies from Swedish Ebay, There was so much detail missing on the reissue, it's unreal. So, that said, this is a far superior rip of the album. There is some light crackle, but overall the album sounds much bigger, much fuller, and you can actually hear the instrumentation much clearer than before. I'm very excited about this one cause over the past few years this has become one of my all time favorite albums (right up there with Histoire De Melody Nelson). So, I'm happy to share it with everyone, I hope you can appreciate it as much as I do. I heard rumors of another vinyl reissue coming out soon. So let's hope they do a better job this time. Meanwhile, enjoy! This was ripped at 320 kbps of course, and I've included a folder containing all of the artwork and labels etc. for your enjoyment as well. Happy Listening.
