"Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood may seem like an unlikely pair to collaborate on duets, yet one could not do without the other. Lee helped to make Nancy a star, and Nancy returned the favor by asking Lee to sing with her on songs that are now viewed as masterpieces in their own right. "You've Lost That Lovin' Feeling," is a lethargic, mellow, groovy piece of art, which is, in turn, followed by the pleasing "Elusive Dreams" and the foot-stomping "Greenwich Village Folk Song Salesman." Within the first three songs, you have apretty good example of Nancy & Lee's work, each a different genre mastered to perfection. All the hits are included here. "Summer Wine" is brilliant. "Jackson," their highest-charting Billboard hit is a rousing country number done perfectly. Both "Sand," and the eclectic, mesmerizing "Some Velvet Morning" demonstrate their versatility even moreso, as these songs delve into the musical genre of sixties psychedelia. No CD collection is complete without this."
Magical World of Nancy and Lee

"Once upon a time, I was a kid listening to my parents' LP, "Nancy & Lee". Her voice was light and airy, his a low growl -- together, they wove a spell. One of the strongest songs is the rarely-heard "Summer Wine," a duet between Lee as a rugged cowboy and Nancy as an elusive temptress. Continental Airlines includes this track on their "summer" background music -- the songs playing as you board the planes in Houston during the months of June, July and August. Hearing it on the plane, I was reminded of the songs from my childhood and set off on a search to find them. Success at last, when I located this CD on Amazon.com. The CD brings back those songs from the "Nancy & Lee" record, plus a few added tracks. Their contrasting voices work well on "Sundown, Sundown" as well as country classics like "Jackson" and "Elusive Dreams." The Hazlewood-penned lyrics of "Some Velvet Morning", "Sand" and "Ladybird" are vague and alluring, drawing us into a magical world. It's good to know that world is still there, and I can go back...."

"This beautiful, creepy music gets under your skin like almost nothing else. I doubt that Lee and Nancy were even aware of what they were creating when they recorded this brilliant material. Down From Dover, Some Velvet Morning, Sand, Sundown Sundown --- they're all in permanent rotation on the CD player. A must-have."
