"For Nancy Sinatra's fifth album, Nancy and her producer Lee Hazlewood decided to make a country record. Instead of just covering some popular country hits, like Ray Charles did on his country albums, they commissioned some top country songwriters to write new songs for Nancy. Then, they went into a Nashville recording studio and taped the songs with some of the top Nashville session musicians. What they ended up with is a pretty fair approximation of a mid-'60s country album. True, Nancy doesn't sound "Southern", but the musicians sound authentic, complete with fiddle and steel guitar. The hit song was Nancy & Lee's cover version of Johnny Cash & June Carter's "Jackson", but the rest of the songs are enjoyable, too. The CD adds three bonus tracks from 1970, after Nancy stopped having hits. Not bad, though."
A great country album by a non-country artist!!!

"I love this album as well as her others that she recorded for Reprise. The songs I like on this set are It's Such a Pretty World Today, Jackson, Oh Lonesome Me, and Lonely Again. I first had this album when I was in high school and was given to me by one of my friends, my bus driver. It sounded great, in spite of the fact that it was scratched due to being old, but, it was audible enough for me to hear. Some people would kind of think of this as a crossover album. I would say that one of her songs I mentioned on this album, Lonely Again, would be kind of a sad sounding song. She did a great job singing on this album."

""Nancy Sinatra - Country My Way" happens to be my all time favorite nancy Sinatra album . . . and I love them all! Just to hear Nancy's rendering of, "It's Such A Pretty Worl Today" is more than worth the price of this cd! And when Nancy sings, . . . well . .. it is such a prettyy world!She performs a really up-beat and totally joyfilled "Lay Some Happiness On Me". . . .and "Help Stamp Out Lonliness" . . . a march to "Help Bring Back Happiness"! :)
If you like . . . if you love great good old countr music, this is THE album to get. Nancy proves that a cityy-girl IS country! She doesn't tgry to make a pretense of a "countr-sound" or "country voice" . . .she simply sings the songs the way they were meant to be sung and heard! I loved this album when it first came out back in 1967 . . . and i've listened to it regularly ever since . . .and i love the new cd format issue of it as much, if not more than when i first heard Nancy sing these songs back when!Thanks You Ms nancy Sinatra for all of your recordings over all the years . . . and thank you for this "Country My Way" album/cd . . . we need great music and songs now more than ever . . .and YOU more than fill the bill! :)"
