Trouble Is a Lonesome Town was Lee Hazlewood 's first proper solo album, following his prosperous late-'50s partnership with Duane Eddy and prior to his mentoring and making of '60s boot-walker Nancy Sinatra.

Hazlewood considered it a "writer's album" from which other artists could cull songs, but Trouble is a perfectly legitimate effort in its own right and characteristically wonderful Hazlewood. The songs are succinct, country-drenched cowboy ballads given a certain undeniable authority by Hazlewood 's warm, bottomless baritone, which booms out of the music like a voice amplified from the heavens. The album runs through jail songs "Six Feet of Chain"railroad songs "The Railroad"traveling songs "Long Black Train"and cold-hearted love songs "Look at That Woman" peppered with outlaws, itinerants, dead-end women, card players, and beat-down heroes, too.

Between the songs, Hazlewood shows his storyteller's gift by offering up bits of narration, and the album itself is a storyteller's record. The music Bobby Lewis - Tossin & Turnin as somber and loping as such subject matter demands, mostly consisting of strummed acoustic guitars and woeful harmonica wails Funeral March - Larry Martin Factory - Early Dawn Flyers And Electric Kids weep the blues.

But it is in the purposefully humorous, sympathetic, and colorful storytelling that the distinct, dead-on Americana heart of Trouble lays. AllMusic relies heavily on JavaScript.
