5.0 out of 5 stars Lee Hazzlewood writes the songs and Nancy Sinatra sings them, 16 Nov. 2002
By A Customer
This review is from: Nancy in London (Audio CD)
I have a special fondness for "Boots," Nancy Sinatra's debut album, but "Nancy in London" is probably her best album, although none of the songs especially prove the title in any significant way. This remastered version makes this point obvious by tacking on four additional tracks including her title songs for the films "You Only Live Twice" and "Tony Rome" along with "Life's a Trippy Thing" the "other" song with Daddy Dearest (and "100 Years" is probably the best of that bunch anyway). Nancy Sinatra always tried to sing a lot of different songs, which explains why you get from "On Broadway," and "I Can't Grow Peaches on a Cherry Tree" on the same side of the album. "Summer Wine" is the second best of her duets with Lee Hazzlewood (after "Some Velvet Morning") and "Friday's Child" is one of her best vocal works (compare it with the "Wishin' and Hopin'" to see the contrast and what the lady could do when she put her mind to it). The other thing I came away from listening to this album again was the realization that Lee Hazzlewood wrote lots of her songs besides their duets: "Friday's Child," "100 Years," "Tony Rome," and "The Last of the Secret Agents" from just this album alone. I always liked their duets best of all, but now I am impressed with his abilities as a songwriter of such a wide variety of songs. How come I never noticed this before? Could it have something to do wtih those white go-go boots Nancy was always wearing? Yeah, that is probably it...
