His collaborations with Sinatra as well as his solo output in the late 1960s and early 1970s have been praised as an essential contribution to a sound often described as "cowboy psychedelia" or "saccharine underground". Rolling Stone ranked Lee Hazlewood & Nancy Sinatra No. 9 on its list of the 20 Greatest Duos of All Time.
The playing grooves of this acetate start 1/3 into the record and in Mint- condition. There is a edge flake long before the playing grooves.
It must have stood in 4 Star studio warehouse untouched and unplayed for over 65 years.A truly one of a kind rarity!!!
