Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood Nancy & Lee Vinyl LP
Light in the Attic is thrilled to announce the official reissue of Nancy & Lee, the highly influential 1968 duet album from Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood.
This definitive edition of Nancy & Lee features newly remastered audio by the GRAMMY®-nominated engineer John Baldwin and includes an array of exclusive content, including a new interview with Nancy, never-before-seen photos, and two bonus tracks from the album sessions: an ethereal cover of The Kinks' "Tired of Waiting for You" and an uptempo version of "Love Is Strange" (first made famous by Mickey & Sylvia in 1956). This release marks the official debut on vinyl for both tracks.
The vinyl LP, pressed at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI), is presented in an expanded gatefold jacket and features the iconic, original cover photo by Ron Joy. Inside, a 20-page booklet offers an array of photos from the legendary singer, actress, and activist's personal collection, as well as an in-depth Q&A with Sinatra, conducted by the reissue's GRAMMY®-nominated co-producer, Hunter Lea.
When Nancy - the eldest daughter of Frank Sinatra - first met Lee Hazlewood in 1965, she was a demure, 25-year-old divorcée, who was struggling to find her place as an artist amid the changing musical landscape. At the urging of her label, she was introduced to the Oklahoma-born songwriter Lee Hazlewood, who had found success working with guitarist Duane Eddy.
While Sinatra and Hazlewood hailed from vastly different worlds, they were about to embark on a partnership that would change the course of their lives. Just months after meeting, Sinatra scored her first No.1 hit with "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'." Written and produced by Hazlewood, the song became Sinatra's signature tune - transforming her into a confident and commanding feminist icon.
Initially, Hazlewood maintained a behind-the-scenes role with Sinatra, enlisting arranger and composer Billy Strange, as well as other members of The Wrecking Crew (the famed Los Angeles session musicians) for the singer's bestselling 1966 debut LP, Boots.
But when they returned to the studio later that year for Sinatra's sophomore effort, How Does That Grab You?, Hazlewood joined the singer for a duet of his song "Sand." Over the next year, as Sinatra's star rose, the artists continued to collaborate in the vocal booth, finding success with "Summer Wine," "Lady Bird," and the cinematic "Some Velvet Morning" (all penned by Hazlewood).
In 1967, just months after Johnny Cash and June Carter Cash scored a country hit with "Jackson," Sinatra and Hazlewood released a pop version of the offbeat song, landing in the Top Ten across Europe and peaking at No.14 in the US.
