    Hazlewood manages to sound resigned, lightly disgusted, heartbroken, and deathbed wise as he sings his way through these songs, none of which ever hit anywhere near an AM radio station. It's easy to be excited for more volumes in this series after hearing this one.

    Despite the occasional hippy-dippyness, there is an elegance to Hazlewood's work.

    In covering just three to four years of Lee Hazlewood's less readily available material The LHI Years mines a rich seam of individualistic pop genius, even the rump of which betters that found within the entire back catalogue of many artists.

    The languid voiced one has rarely sounded better. [Jun 2012, p.100]

    Most rewardingly and remarkably, Nudes, Singles & Backsides manages to present a fairly detailed portrait of an artist who found himself suddenly back on the pop music margins.

    Funny, and--beneath the psych flourishes--quietly devastating. [Jun 2012, p.93]
