Friedrich Seitz was a noted violinist who served as concertmaster of the Bayreuth Festspiele, toured widely as a soloist and also composed a series of works, principally for violin and piano. He is best known for his Concertos for Violin and Piano, or Schüler-Konzerte (Student Concertos). Designed as an introduction to violin technique, they can be divided into two kinds: those wholly in the first (and easiest) position and those employing more advanced positions. Containing delightful melodies, short cadenzas, double-stops, trills, staccato bowing and much else, the concertos have proved enduringly popular vehicles for young performers since the day they were published.

Another dearth of Hazlewood originals in lieu of medircre showtunes ("It Was a Very Good Year," "September Song"); nonetheless the hardcore downer "The Bed" and his dark, turgid, but almost saucy take on Randy Newman's "Let's Burn Down the Cornfield" are stellar.

Taking a break from the frenzied pace of his late 60s songwriting work, Hazlewood recorded this collection of country-tinged and Hollywood-soaked songs about both the sweetness and loss of love. The duo perform cuts such as "Dark End of the Street" and "Only Mama That'll Walk the Line" in their own utterly inimitable style only natural for two personalities as inimitable as Lee and Ann-Margret. In addition, Lee performs Tom Rush's "No Regrets" solo, taking a cold, hard look at the aftermath of love gone wrong, in typical Hazlewood fashion.
