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.

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.

"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.

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
