Now that "Boots" has been reissued on CD I am surprised to learn that in the later Sixties when my father went to the base tape club and made copies of all of Nancy Sinatra's albums on a reel-to-reel tape for me that he recorded Side 2 first. Of all of her albums this was the one I most wanted to get on CD because I have always remembered that tape (and this album) starting off with "In My Room." That particular song was not collected on any of the Nancy Sinatra hits collections (both of which are excellent), so it was the one song in her repertoire that I most wanted to get a hold of; and here it is track 6 instead of track 1. Just another cherished illusion of childhood going down the drain.
When you look over the songs on this album it is clear that for her debut album Nancy Sinatra was trying to cover a wide range of Sixties rock 'n' roll. She starts with the Rolling Stones' "As Tears Go By" and "Day Tripper" by the Beatles," and even manages to cover Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" and toss in a little country & western with "Flowers on the Wall." The first of that particular quartet is the best, but her reputation ended up being made by a couple of the original songs on the album, "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" and "So Long Babe." The four bonus tracks are certainly a plus (worth another half star or so for the rating), but I did not need them to convince me I wanted this album to listen to "In My Room"....down at the end of the hallway...

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
Of all the 60's female vocalists, Nancy Sinatra was surely the grooviest. Her vocal talents were at best average and her range limited but her unlikely partnership with maverick producer/ singer/songwriter Lee Hazelwood resulted in some of the strangest pop of the late 60s and has acheived cult status and respect from contemporary songsmiths like Nick Cave and Morrissey.

On this her debut, released in 1966, there is nothing approaching the genius of 'These Boots Are Made For Walking' which appears twice in both stereo and mono. As with all her 60s albums, the material is dominated by covers with a few Hazelwood originals.

Oddly, the album opens with a cover of Marianne Faithful's 'As Tears Go By', it starts out like a real downer until Hazelwood bravely or foolishly turns it into a lilting Bossa Nova. Where possible, and who could blame him, Hazelwood capitalises on the hit 'These Boots...'. On (The Beatles)'Day Tripper' for instance Hazelwood cheekily throws in the descending bass line of These Boots and (The Beatles)'Run For Your Life' sounds like it was composed for a cage of Go-Go dancers. The Castaway's (Beatlesque) 'Lies' features some cool brass work but Nancy sounds like she's struggling. She's much better on Hazelwood's Dylanesque 'So Long, Babe' and better still is her cover of Joaquin Prieto's dramatic ballad ('El Amor') 'In My Room'. Aided by some wonderful mournful Spanish trumpet, Nancy's vocal is strong and utterly compelling and is one of the album's true standouts.

The bonus tracks, all Hazelwood originals, includes the truly wretched 'Leave My Dog Alone'; 'In Our Time' which sounds like it might have been influenced by Sonny & Cher's 'The Beat Goes On' but is no where near as good and dares to rhyme 'Louvre' with 'Groove.

Well, five stars might be too much for you, if you are not Nancy Sinatra fan, since besides the great hit song there are mostly covers of the recent pop hits. Still, this is a nice album and a start for a great career. I bought an Australian import edition which is a bit cheaper than the U.S. import but the contents are identical.

Are you ready, boots? 9 Jun. 2004
By Johnny Heering - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
Nancy Sinatra was signed to Reprise Records mainly because her father owned the record label. After a whopping eleven flop singles, Nancy was given "one more chance", with the understanding that she would be dropped by the label if her next record didn't sell. Having nothing to lose, she hooked up with maverick producer/songwriter Lee Hazlewood at her next recording session. The resulting record, "So Long, Babe", wasn't a major hit, but it sold enough copies to save Nancy's job. Then the next record that Lee cooked up for Nancy, "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'", was a major smash and turned her career around. What comes next after a Number One hit single? An album, of course! Nancy first album was centered around that hit (and the sexy cover didn't hurt sales, either). I guess Lee was a little short on material, because over half the album was covers of other people's hits. Artists covered include The Rolling Stones, The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Knickerbockers and The Statler Brothers. You know, all the usual suspects. The covers are actually pretty fun, thanks to interesting arrangements by Hazlewood. The CD includes four bonus tracks. "The City Never Sleeps at Night" was the b-side of "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'". "In Our Time" was a relatively unsuccessful single, and "Leave My Dog Alone" was it's b-side. The mono single version of "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" closes out the album. Recommended to all of Nancy's fans.

One of these days these boots are gonna walk all over you! 2 July 2002
By Daniel J. Hamlow - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
In 1995, when Sundazed Records decided to reissue Nancy Sinatra's first four albums, it took me a few hours to search for my eyeballs, which had fallen out of my sockets in amazement. After all, I only had The Hit Years, which I somehow felt didn't do her justice. My assessment turned out accurate when I bought those first four albums. Of the four, Boots wins first place, though two others come very close. Maybe it's because Boots is more pop before she veered off into the easy listening direction with Nancy In London and Sugar, not that I minded that. The inner liner notes and the pictures of her on the CDs were added bonuses.
She's quite the vagabond in "I Move Around," having moved to California, New York, and other places. And her classic signature tune, "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" is included twice in here, once in a stereo version, the other in the original mono single version. This is definitely on my Top 100 songs list. Besides, with this song being covered by the likes of Geri Halliwell, KMFDM, Megadeth, and Sam Phillips, I can't be wrong on how classic this is.
I find her covering more than just one cover song per album reminiscent to what Bonnie Tyler did on her early albums, and I didn't mind that. She covers two Beatles songs: "Day Tripper" and "Run For Your Life," Bob Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" from Another Side, The Statler Brothers' "Flowers On The Wall," and the Rolling Stones' "As Tears Go By." All are done admirably, especially the Stones song.
"Flowers On The Wall" is a cocooners' delight. In addition to the counting flowers, she plays solitaire with 51 cards, smokes cigarettes and watches Captain Kangaroo. I can dig it--if I had my way, I wouldn't want to go outside anyway.
"If He'd Love Me" shows how well Nancy can sing a ballad as well as upbeat pop. "Leave My Dog Alone" is an open statement against narrow-minded people who believe in conformity in the community or society. The people got to her by harassing her pets. First her dog: "All he ever did was wag his tail, people, why did you have to throw my dog in jail." Then her cat: "He never said not a bad word, no not him. Why'd you throw him in the river, you know he can't swim." The bottom message to the people is: "Let me be the way I wanna be." You tell'em, Nance!
OK, what else? "In Our Time" is a time capsule update of what's hip and what wasn't hip anymore. Girls became smokers "Some take trips but never move" is clearly a reference to the drug culture. The line I like was "Mickey Mouse ain't no kid/since he read the wizard of id/He's trying to figure out what it did." "If you're 20, then you're old." 20? Yeesh!
I enjoy her stuff, so I don't have to worry about those boots walking all over me.

A masterpiece 5 Feb. 2003
By A Customer - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
"These Boots" always seemed like a funny novelty song; so, like many others, I discarded Nancy Sinatra as a one-hit wonder who cashed in on that famous relative. But this album is a pop masterpiece that is totally evocative of its era. It only could have been recorded in 1966. It's a wondrous mishmash of musical currents: loungy bossa nova, bright Memphis horns, David Rose-style bump-and-grind, easy listening choruses, catchy bumblegum pop, and bold Vegas showstopping. And it all works! The mostly forgotten Lee Hazlewood, who produced the album, was a genius who had a finely tuned ear for commercial music. He crafted Nancy's wholly fabricated tough-chick image to ride on top of his brilliant arrangements. This is one of the most listenable albums of the '60s. When it plays I feel I'm cruising down the Sunset Strip in a convertible ogling mini-skirted girls in front of the Whisky Au Go Go.

Her First Album And Her Biggest Solo Single 19 Sept. 2012
By AvidOldiesCollector - Published on Amazon.com
In October 1965, Nancy Sinatra, daughter of the great Frank Sinatra, had her first Pop charter for dad's Reprise label with So Long Babe. Written and produced by Lee Hazlewood, and with Billy Strange conducting the backing orchestra, it didn't exactly set the world on fire, settling for a # 86 Billboard Pop Hot 100 on Reprise 0407 b/w If He'd Love Me.

But that changed dramatically with her next release when These Boots Are Made For Walkin' - also written by Hazlewood and again involving Strange - shot to # 1 Hot 100 in February/March 1966 on Reprise 0432 b/w The City Never Sleeps At Night. All but the latter then appeared in this, her first album, which was released (Reprise 6202) even as the single was shooting up the charts, eventually reaching # 5 on Billboard's Top 200 album charts and gaining gold status (with the continued involvement of Hazlewood and Strange).

Liner notes on the back cover by Stan Cornyn begin "How should I sing this?" "Like a 16 year old girl who's been dating a 40 year old man, but it's all over now." He then goes on to say "She looks good, dresses good, lives good, eats, drinks, loves, breathes, dances, sings, cries good. Five foot three and tiger eyes. A mouth made for lollipops or kisses, Stingers or melting smiles. Ninety-five pounds of affection ..."

The tracks, with writers shown in brackets, are:
Side 1
1. As Tears Go By (Jagger-Richard-Oldham) - 2:54
2. Day Tripper (Lennon - McCartney) - 3:03
3. I Move Around (Hazlewood) - 2:51
4. It Ain't Me Babe (Dylan) - 2:04
5. These Boots Are Made For Walkin' (Hazlewood) - 2:46
Side 2
1. In My Room (Vance - Pockriss) - 2:41
2. Lies (Randall - Chareles) - 2:49
3. So Long Babe (Hazlewood) - 3:08
4. Flowers On The Wall (Lewis - DeWitt) - 2:41
5. If He'd Love Me (M. Eddy) - 2:48
6. Run For Your Life (Lennon - McCartney) - 2:43

Nancy Sinatra puts out her boots and does some walkin' 29 Jun. 2004
By Lawrance Bernabo - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Audio CD
I read that Nancy Sinatra was the first inductee into the Go-Go Boots Hall of Fame. Of course that might have been just something somebody made up on the internet, but it sure seems plausible to me. The boots Nancy wars on the cover of her debut album are not the classic white go-go boots we usually associate with her, but 'tis enough; t'will serve. I started listening to Nancy Sinatra to bug my mom, who worshipped Daddy Sinatra. Nancy was never a great singer, but she was certainly more than competent and she had good production people around her (especially Lee Hazzlewood later on).
Before we even get to Nancy's most famous song, the #1 hit "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" we get to listen to her cover songs by the Rolling Stones, the Beatles, and Bob Dylan. When my dad taped this album for me many, many years ago he must have gotten the sides wrong, because I would have sworn "In My Room" was the first cut on the album. It certainly sets the tone for the rest of the album. Anyhow, like the good people at Rhino, those at Sundazed have added some extras to this 1966 Reprise album (who ever came up with the idea of "padding" old albums from the Sixties so that the CDs were not less than half an hour long deserves a medal).
Nancy Sinatra's debut album made it to #5 on the Billboard pop chart. There are four such bonus tracks on "Boots," including the Mono Single Version of "These Boots Are Made for Walkin,'" just for those who crave a sense of completeness to their music collection. The common denominator is that Hazlewood wrote all four songs. Ultimately, there are no claims to be made that this was a great album by a great artist, but just fond memories of one of the sexy sirens of Sixties music.
