The mid to late 60’s were successful ones for Nancy Sinatra-and her partnership with producer and songwriter Lee Hazlewood. Hazlewood also a singer- had written the song and attended to record it himself- until Nancy convinced him otherwise by telling him that it wasn’t a song for a man to sing but for a woman. She was right. Her dad Frank who was present when they were recording told her afterward that it was the best song that they had played. Nancy had one more #1 hit- her duet with her father “Somethin’ Stupid” in 1967. Her three albums with Lee Hazlewood are worth seeking out.

  1. We used to have this album and I’ve listened to her and Lee on it many times as a kid. Great contrast between their voices! I remember the song, “Sand” and it sounded like his vocal cords has been sanded 🙂
