In 1969 Lee Hazlewood's personal record label LHI Records was flush with major label cash and Lee wanted to make Ann-Margret his next big star. In the quest for a hit, the pair recorded fuzzed out acid rock ("It's A Nice World To Visit (But Not To Live In)," "You Turned My Head Around"), orchestral pop ("Sleep in the Grass" & "Chico") and a genuine country album cut in Nashville. LITA is proud to continue it's Lee Hazlewood archival series with an expanded reissue of Lee & Ann-Margret's The Cowboy & The Lady. The album is Hazlewood's truest country album and a perfect example of the genre hopping he was afforded at LHI with unlimited creative freedom and money to burn. Recorded over a weekend in Nashville with the help of Charlie McCoy and some Nashville session musicians.

A whirlwind year of learjet promo tours, magazine photo shoots, television specials and cutting records for LHI wasn't able to bring the success that Lee and Ann-Margret pushed for. A second LHI album with Ann-Margret was planned but never recorded. Within a year of making the trip to Nashville, Lee would be living in Sweden full-time and Ann-Margret would focus on her acting career for the better part of a decade. Nothing exemplifies Lee's "throw it against the wall and see if it sticks" record production of the LHI era like his work with Ann-Margret. Though it didn't stick, and it didn't sell, Lee's adventure with Ann-Margret is an extravagant tangent that has since grown a cult following.
