Lee Hazlewood comic strip, the story of 13 told through original artwork by Jess
Rotter.
“Pimps… whores… pushers… dopers… gangsters… and bottom of the human chain shit-heels. Now
you’re probably thinking I’m writing about major record companies and their unscrupulous
executives… and lawyers. You could be right… but this time… YOU’RE WRONG! I’m describing the
characters in my album ‘13’ …Some I knew… some I invented … some are true… some are false…
some I liked… some I didn’t. But they all had a story to tell and I told it…none of ‘em seem to care…
and I don’t either… have fun…" – Lee Hazlewood
“He (Lee) took my voice off the album and put his voice on the album. Now don’t forget these were
in my keys, it was my charts, it was my everything. Lee Hazlewood was not even remotely going to
be considered as an artist for this album and that’s the way he wanted it.” – Larry Marks
The album 13 was never supposed to be a Lee Hazlewood album. It is perhaps the strangest record
in one of the most varied discographies in music. The Bombastic brass heavy funk, deep blues and
soul paired with Hazlewood’s subterranean baritone would be best enjoyed with a tall Chivas in an
off-strip seedy Vegas lounge. By 1972 Lee Hazlewood had settled in his new homeland of Sweden.
His days were spent carousing, making movies with Torbjӧrn Axelman and releasing albums. To
keep up his prolific recorded output, Lee began to mine the recently defunct LHI Records archives
for material. One such gem, was an unreleased album by Larry Marks (LHI producer, artist and the
voice of the first Scooby-Doo theme). Larry’s concept was to take Hazlewood’s strongest
compositions and arrange them in a soul vibe. An album was completed, but with no distribution in
America and no funding, Lee had no vehicle to release Larry’s record. The tapes were taken to
Sweden, Larry’s voice was wiped and Hazlewood’s was dubbed… 13 was born.
