      Albert's Biography
      A Biography of Albert Lee
      ca. 65 photos, appendices, notes, bibliography, index
      hardcover (7 x 10) 2008 Best known for his unique musical style and blindingly fast hybrid picking technique, English guitarist Albert Lee is often referred to within the music industry as the "guitar player's guitar player," renowned for his work across several genres of music and for the respect that he has garnered from other industry giants.
      This comprehensive biography tells the entire story of Lee's long career and personal experiences, beginning with his upbringing in south London and his early experimentations with skiffle music (the British equivalent of American rockabilly). The story continues into the 1960s, through Lee's career in Chris Farlowe's Thunderbirds and the British rock and country group Heads, Hands & Feet before covering Lee's move to the United States in the 1970s and his subsequent work with Eric Clapton, the Crickets, Emmylou Harris and the Hot Band, the Everly Brothers, and, more recently, with Bill Wyman and with Hogan's Heroes. Throughout the work, the author sets Lee's career against the background of changes in popular music and assesses how Lee, as a British artist with nomadic Romany roots, has impacted traditionally "American" musical genres.
      The work includes 66 photographs, many from Lee's personal collection, two appendices, and an extensive bibliography.
      All Music Guide Review:
      This reissue is both welcome and irritating. The welcome part is that this brilliant music, by one of those more ubiquitous if under-recognized session guitarists of the 1970s and 1980s, is finally available in a remastered edition on CD, thanks to Australia's Raven label. Albert Lee's20A&M session Hiding was recorded in two different stages. The first was with Lee playing virtually everything but bass and drums with old friends Dave Peacock and Chas Hodges. The second and definitive stage was when he became a touring member of Emmylou Harris' Hot Band, enlisting her then-husband, Brian Ahern, and the entire band (which included Ricky Skaggs, Hank DeVito, Emory Gordy, Rodney Crowell, and Glen D. Hardin) with session cats like Buddy Emmons and Mickey Raphael. The standard issue from Hiding was the tune "Country Boy," which has been covered by a dozen artists since. The sound of the record was close to the bone, full of fiddles, acoustic guitars, mandolins, funky bass and piano lines, and Lee's trademark electric blistering licks. Covers of the Louvins' "Are You Wasting My=2 0Time," John Reid's "Now and Then It's Gonna Rain," and three Crowell tunes -- including "Ain't Living Long Like This" -- rounded out the album. While Lee's singing leaves a bit to be desired here, it doesn't detract, either. But the masterpiece in this set is Lee's self-titled album from 1982. Producer Crowell, who was riding high with productions for Harris, his then-wife Rosanne Cash, and his own album, put together a band and helped Lee choose ten smoking tracks that showcased his abilities not only as a guitarist but as a frontman. The album opens with DeVito's pub rocker "Sweet Little Lisa" (this version is second only to Dave Edmunds' read of it) and slides right into John Hiatt's "Radio Girl" -- a version even better than the original. Lee contributed the slippery cruiser "Your Boys, " and Crowell gave him another pair of tunes to balance the equation with one more each by Hiatt and DeVito. The songs serve to offer a more rock & roll side of Lee. His first love may have been country, but Crowell heard in him what he heard in Nick Lowe and Edmunds, a British rocker whose love for American roots music translated into something entirely new. There isn't a substandard second on the latter album and it continues to be the high point in Lee's catalog as a solo artist. As for the irritating element of this release: why does it take a non-American label to reissue the finest gems from the North American labels that birthed them? Given that both of these records appeared on labels now owned by Universal, there is no excuse that they haven't been issued stateside. Perhaps Universal is so busy putting out its no-brainer, no-passion, mediocre Millennium Collections to notice the treasures in its own vault. It's shameful. ~ Thom Jurek, All Music Guide
