4.0 out of 5 stars Lightning's Girl Delivers the Goods July 17, 2000
Format:Audio CD
It's hard to believe this former sex-kitten turned sixty this year. For two years (1966-1968) Nancy Sinatra placed ten songs in the Top 40 and they're all here. This is a chronological collection beginning with her first Hot 100 single "So Long, Babe" (1965) to her last failed single "Hook and Ladder" (1970) written by Norman "Spirit in the Sky" Greenbaum. There are the solo hits like the million-sellers "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" and "Sugar Town." The duet with daddy Frank, "Somethin' Stupid," which also sold a million copies and topped the charts for four weeks. [And keep in mind this was 1967--the height of the psychedelic era!] Also included are her three hits with Lee Hazelwood, who also wrote all of her hits except "Somethin' Stupid."
It's easy to shrug off Nancy's success as little more than a result of her show biz connections, but it takes more than a famous father and a pretty face. She had a terrific voice, a great songwriter in Hazelwood, and some of the best session players of the day--Glen Campbell, James Burton, Hal Blaine, Jim Gordon, Larry Knechtel, Leon Russell. It was a winning combination, and these songs still brim with enthusiasm and excitement more than thirty years later. RECOMMENDED

When my father was stationed in Japan in the late Sixties we joined him well before all of our belongings. With a new home and a new school in a new country, the only sense of place was Armed Forces radio. Every time "Some Velvet Morning" played I would feel better. To this day, listening to Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood sing that song takes me back to that time and how I felt. My father made tapes of all of Nancy's albums but they are long gone. Fortunately, "The Hit Years" makes them unnecessary. This is one of the better collections put together by the folks down at Rhino, who have been out there getting our more eclectic youthful memories transferred to CD for quite some time.
Basically all you need to know is that your favorite Nancy Sinatra song is on this album along with the rest of her hits and probably one or two songs that might be new to you but that you may well enjoy. "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'," "The Last of the Secret Agents," "Sugar Town," and "You Only Live Twice," are included. In addition to "Some Velvet Morning" there are three other duets with Lee Hazelwood, "Summer Wine," "Jackson" and "Lady Bird." Of course, there is also "Somethin' Stupid," sung with daddy (in only two takes). The liner notes are above average, as you have come to expect with Rhino, and there is even the obligatory shot of Nancy in white go-go boots. I think these songs hold up a lot better than a lot of the other stuff I listened to back then in Japan, as does Nancy herself as we all found out a few years ago.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great introduction to Nancy's many styles May 8, 2000
Format:Audio CD
This disc demonstrates Nancy Sinatra's facility with many types of music. "Boots," "How Does that Grab You" and "Jackson" are country-rock. For a softer, atmospheric sound there's "Some Velvet Morning," "Sugar Town" and "Summer Wine." Although the lyrics don't make much sense, somehow it doesn't matter. That's part of the charm. And "You Only Live Twice" is my favorite James Bond film theme, hands down. Nancy gets top notch assistance from Lee Hazelwood, Frank Sinatra, Billy Strange, and some famous session players, including Leon Russell, James Burton, Carol Kaye, Glen Campbell and Hal Blaine. My advice: buy this CD first. Then seek out original vinyl copies of her albums from the 60s. By the way, the notes say Nancy took several years off while her kids were growing up. Perhaps she'll find a new label and record again, now that interest in her vintage work is at a high point.

5.0 out of 5 stars I Love Nancy! March 8, 2000
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This album is so wonderful I can't say enough good things about it! Nancy has a beautiful, wistful voice that just draws you into the songs. The reason this is her ultimate CD rather than the new You Go-Go Girl one is that it includes her duets with Lee Hazlewood. These are so haunting (especially Some Velvet Morning) and beautiful that they add a whole new level to Nancy's music. Of course, her solo stuff is just as enjoyable. These Boots Are Made For Walkin' would be worth the price of the cd alone, but nearly every song on here is worth owning. The duet with Frank is so totally adorable. Nancy is the best . . . I'd love to hear some new recordings *hint hint*!

4.0 out of 5 stars Good Compilation Of Nancy Sinatra December 15, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
The list of songs speaks for itself. Sound quality is excellent, these could have been recorded yesterday. The CD insert states the following:

"All tracks on this Compact Disc were taken from first generation master tapes. Whenever stereo masters were unavailable, tracks were remixed to digital from multi-track sources. "Tony Rome" and "The last of The Secret Agents" remain in mono, as no multi-track tapes exits."

Either Rhino made a mistake or they found the stereo tapes for "Last Of The Secret Agents" as it is in true stereo on the current version of this CD, which leaves only Tony Roma in mono.
