CD Reviews

Nancy as Torch Singer
Mike Morrison | Chatsworth, CA United States | 09/02/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Here's a wonderful collection of love songs with very little duplication from Nancy's earlier albums. No gags, no duets - just 65:18 of marvelous, wistful, loving songs in her typically simple arrangements. There are a couple of special treasures: "Flowers" - a Bobby Cole tune from 1970 - is a tour de force and short story all in about three and a half minutes. Nancy's cover of Jim Morrison's "Light My Fire" is marvelous and perfectly set toward the bottom of her smoky alto range. All in all, this is a terrific album."
Nancy Sinatra singing love songs in the manner of her father
Lawrance M. Bernabo | The Zenith City, Duluth, Minnesota | 09/01/2003
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I was greatly enamored with Nancy Sinatra in the late 1960s, mainly because she looked great in white go-go boots but also because my mother's favorite singer was Frank Sinatra and listening to Nancy allowed me to assert that she was the only decent singer in the family. When my father was stationed in Japan I can remember finding solace in the strange new world in which I had been dumped listening to "Some Velvet Morning" every time it came on Armed Forces Radio. My favorite Nancy Sinatra songs have always been her duets with Lee Hazzlewood, after which I liked her rock covers. So it is rather ironic that in this 1998 album "Sheet Music: A Collection of Her Favorite Love Songs," is that Nancy has put together 21 tracks where she is often singing songs in a style we would all associate much more with her father than the tunes on her greatest hits collection.The other great attraction here are the nine unreleased songs, featuring covers of songs by George Harrison ("Something"), Paul McCartney ("Maybe I'm Amazed"), and Ray Davies ("Tired of Waiting for Young"). On that last one the liner notes inform us that nobody remembers who produced and arranged the song or when it was recorded, so there was some serious cleaning out of the music vault for this one (Billy Strange did a lot of the arranging, but that song is clearly not in his style). There is a low keyed cover of "California Dreamin'" but the one I liked whas "When I Look In Your Eyes," which few would remember as being sung by Rex Harrison to a seal in "Dr. Doolittle" (the final lyric is rewritten). Add ot this another four singles, including "Nice 'n' Easy" and "True Love," and those who have all of Nancy Sinatra's albums are going to find that over half of the tracks on "Sheet Music" are "new." These songs are not for the casual Nancy Sinatra fan, but for those people who collected her albums in the Sixties, patiently waited for them to be remastered as DVDs, and even picked up a popular men's magazine simply because it had a pictorial spread of the woman in all her glory. This is not a great album but it is still a welcome addition to our Nancy Sinatra music library."
Classic Nancy in a romantic mood!

"This album as a whole is very slinky, romantic, and classy. Nancy sounds very relaxed and seductive on "Kind of a Woman" and "Kinky Love"--two tracks that should have been as big as her trademark, "Boots". All the tracks here, most previously unreleased, sound amazing. Lots of string arrangements, gorgeous backing vocals, and sensual lyrics. If you aren't already a major Nancy fan, this album will do the trick!!"
