The best compilation of Nancy
Curmudgeon | West Australia | 10/03/2001
(5 out of 5 stars)
"Just great stuff - spanning her hit years of the mid 60s to early 70s, with just about every hit and classic duets with Lee Hazlewood (the baroque splendour of "Some Velvet Morning") and Frank Sinatra ("Somethin' Stupid"). Unless you're an absolute fanatic this contains everything you could want from Ms Sinatra."
Best compilation of Nancy's music

"This is the Australian edition of the compilation - it has the same title and tracks as the American edition but different artwork.
Nancy made many excellent records, as this compilation shows. All the essential tracks are here, including These boots are made for walking, an international number one hit, How does that grab you darling and Sugar town. Among Nancy's other solo tracks are a couple of James Bond songs, You only live twice and The last of the secret agents.
Nancy also had several big hits via duets with Lee Hazelwood. Did you ever was a British hit, while Summer wine, Jackson and Some velvet morning were American hits. Ladybird was a hit in both countries. Among their other duets, Down from Dover is a cover of an early Dolly Parton song, which Dolly herself re-recorded for her Little sparrow album.
Nancy's most famous duet is the one she did with her father, Something stupid. Robbie Williams and Nicole Kidman recently revived this song in the Moulin Rouge soundtrack, bringing the song to a whole new generation of listeners.
This is a great introduction to her music, but does not display the full range of her talent - for example, she did a superb country album (Country my way) which is not represented on this collection. Even so, if you only ever buy one Nancy Sinatra collection, this is the one to choose."
