Feature LP: Warren Zevon – Wanted Dead or Alive (1970) 5:30pm ET

Wanted Dead or Alive is the first album by singer/songwriter Warren Zevon, released by Imperial Records in 1970 under the moniker “Zevon.” The album was a commercial and critical failure.

The track “She Quit Me” was featured in the 1969 film Midnight Cowboy as “He Quit Me.” “Tule’s Blues” was written about his lover, Marilyn “Tule” Livingston, mother of his son Jordan.

Kim Fowley began the project as producer, but he left after disagreements with Zevon and did not take credit for production duties. Fowley later remembered:
[Warren] wanted to play all the instruments himself. He wouldn’t listen to anybody. I wasn’t trying to produce him because you really couldn’t produce Warren, at least not in those days, but I was trying to help him make a record that might sell more than ten copies, all purchased by his friends. But, he didn’t listen to anyone about anything, and one day I just walked in thinking I’d had enough.

Zevon chalked up his disagreement with Fowley to a “sudden attack of taste.”

The album was released “to the sound of one hand clapping,” as Zevon later remarked. Sales were poor, and critics ignored the album. Jackson Browne later commented, “I don’t remember thinking [the album] was as good as he really was.” Attempts to record a follow-up album, called Leaf In The Wind, were abandoned, and Zevon found work as band leader and musical coordinator for the Everly Brothers. His next album, the critically acclaimed classic Warren Zevon, was not released until 1976. Once Zevon reached stardom, Wanted Dead or Alive ended up as an all-but-forgotten relic of his early career.
Wanted Dead or Alive was initially released on the CD format by One Way Records in 1996. Following the announcement that Zevon had terminal lung cancer, Capitol Records put out a remastered version of the album in early 2003.
