Taking on the Top 40, twang and Tin Pan Alley, our favorite blonde was comfy beyond the confines of her trademark kitten-with-a-whip Lee Hazlewood collaborations. Sundazed lovingly fusses over Nancy's catalog with meticulous restoration. This release includes the bonus tracks 'Drummer Man', 'I Love Them All (The Boys In The Band) ' and 'Good Time Girl'.

Fast-movin', sweet-talkin' Nancy packs a punch

"The "Movin' with Nancy" album (1967) is actually (as stated on the cover), the soundtrack to her most-definitely-needs-to-be-released-on-home-video Emmy-winning TV special of the same name. Each of the fifteen songs (including the bonus tracks) demonstrates Nancy's adaptability to a variety of musical genres. "Who Will Buy" exemplifies her vocal range, "Wait Till You See Him," and the glorious "See the Little Children" all illustrate the softer side of Nancy. Which, in this case, is just as magnificent as her "tough-girl" side. While the novelty "Things" with Dean Martin, the mesmerizing and somniferous "Some Velvet Morning" with Lee Hazlewood, the country-flavored "Jackson," the rousing "Up, Up and Away," the '60s power-ballads "This Town," and "Friday's Child" each glorify Nancy to heights unimaginable. And while up there, she manages to make us feel the "high" she's at as well. It's Nancy at her VERY best!"
Sinatra's best outing

"This is good stuff from Nancy Sinatra and what fun to listen to. She evokes her mini-skirt clad tough girl in songs like "I gotta get out this town" and a sweet sensual side in "wait till you see him." Her voice, while not a superior instrument, blends nicely with her 60s pop arrangements, though her Up, Up and Away has a hokeyness to it that seems OK. "Younger than Springtime" is sung by her dad. Originally a love ballad from South Pacific, father now sings it adoringly to his most talented child. Be careful though if you've seen the TV special, you won't find "Sugartown" on this disc. But easily available on her disc "The Hit Years." And that's a good buy, too."
Movin' is a mixed bag

"Nancy tossed the cowboy boots and hat and did a TV special, from which this album is derived. "I Gotta Get Out Of This Town" is reminiscent of her early incarnation. "Who Will Buy" starts out as a ballad, then launches into overblown Broadway-style horns and strings."Wait Till You See Him" is used as a lead-in for her father to sing "Younger Than Springtime" from South Pacific. What was the point of including Frank here, huh? At least he only appears once so it doesn't become a Frank Sinatra album, but an entire song done by him on a Nancy album?All her duets are winners, the Lee Hazlewood ones being "Jackson," and the lush "Some Velvet Morning." Lee sings about that velvet morning when he's straight. I detect some drug references and some fairies and a nature goddess (Phaedra) in the song from: "Flowers growing on a hill/dragonflies and daffodils/Learn from us very much/Look at us but do not touch/Phaedra is my name." According to the greatest hits I have, the meaning of the song was lost. Nancy sings the chorus while Lee does the verses. It's strangely weird and it's one of my favorites on this album. She and Dean Martin sing about "Things" they used to do but her contributions don't seem substantial.The quiet and lush "See The Little Children" highlights her ballad capabilities well. So does the reflective "This Town," which is a "make you town or break you town/and bring you down town." It's a revisit to the place of harassment in "Flowers On The Wall." "A love you town/shove you down/and push you around town," "that's all right town for an uptight town"--hey, that sounds like Farmington, NM!Two cover songs she does are the Fifth Dimension's "Up, Up And Away" (you know--"up, up and away in my beautiful balloon) and Ray Charles' "What'd I Say," both tastefully done, with positive energy brimming off the first. I'd heard the original before but didn't know the title of it. Needless to say, when I heard Nancy's version of the 5D's song, I thought, "Whoa! So that's the name of this song. Now who originally did it?" And she shows she can rock and roll in "What'd I Say."Two old tunes show up here--"Jackson" and "Friday's Child." And of the Reprise singles, "Good Time Girl" is my favorite. All in all, it's a mixture of Boots and Nancy In London stuff. It's like going out trick or treating and only getting either Snickers or Gummy Bears. Well, on her next album, the bag's got more kinds of treats, so stay tuned!"
