Albert Lee – Heartbreak Hill

In the early ’70s Lee was the best country picker in London, and a pioneer of early British country-rock with Heads, Hands And Feet. Then he took over from James Burton in Emmylou Harris’ Hot Band. On Heartbreak Hill, he pays tribute to the lady with a collection of songs from her repertoire. He’s accompanied by Nashville’s finest, yet the focus always remains the brilliant guitar work of the “skinny, half-gypsy Englishman whose blistering solos and passion for American music knocked us off our feet,” as Emmylou puts it in her liner note. Meanwhile, can anyone explain the lack of a Heads, Hands And Feet best-of.
