Yes, the album cover screams SEX KITTEN at you, even without the trademark white go-go boots. The evocative pose is rather ironic since on "How Does That Grab You?" Nancy Sinatra shifts away from covering rock songs as she did on her first album "Boots" and explores more traditional pop genres. I mean, listen to the first two tracks, "Not the Lovin' Kind" and "Shadow of Your Smile," and you would never think to connect the dots between these songs and "These Boots Are Made for Walking." This is the most diverse Nancy Sinatra album, which is an understatement for an album that can offer up "Let It Be Me" and "Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)"; but remember, originally they would have been on different sides of the record. However, there are several excellent examples of what is now considered vintage Nancy Sinatra, such as the title song, "Last of the Secret Agents," and "Lightning Girl." There is also "Sand," which is the best of her duets with Lee Hazzlewood that did not make it onto her original hits collection on CD. But on balance this is a second tier Nancy Sinatra Album that is also harmed by the fact that the album cover is now reduced to CD size when it really needs to be a poster suitable for hanging on your wall. I wonder which came first: the decision to give the album this name or the decision to use that cover photo?

If you prefer original recordings to the influx of cover versions of classic tunes then this is the album for you! Film directors know that too, & a good score is essential for box office success.

Bought this for one song only but certainly wasn't disappointed with the whole CD, bought back lots of memories.
