Editorial Reviews

Product Description

Nancy Sinatra, her new self-titled album, is a series of collaborations between the legendary Nancy Sinatra & artists including Morrissey, Bono & The Edge, Pete Yorn, Steve Van Zandt, Thurston Moore (Sonic Youth), Jarvis Cocker (Pulp), John Spencer (Blues Explosion), The Doves, & Calexico which have resulted in this album of guitar-based contemporary pop songs.

Amazon.com

The late-'60s collaborations between Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood yielded plenty of brilliant songs and, lest we forget, the kitsch warhorse "These Boots Are Made For Walking." Now, with the help of artists that were inspired by those seminal recordings, we get Nancy Sinatra. Here, the diva is paired up with a handful of contemporary songwriters and musicians, including Morrissey, Calexico, Pete Yorn, Thurston Moore, Jon Spencer, and others. The tunes vary stylistically with each track, but Sinatra herself sounds as good as ever. Calexico's "Burnin' Down the Spark" sounds like it was lifted from a Sergio Leone spaghetti western; Jon Spencer's "Ain't No Easy Way" is a bluesy honky tonk duet; and "Two Shots of Happy" (penned by U2's Bono and the Edge) is a Kurt Weil-inspired ballad. The two tracks from Jarvis Cocker and Richard Hawley are even better: "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time" and "Baby's Coming Back to Me" harken back to the grand pop drama of those original Hazlewood recordings. All told, a fun and welcomed comeback. --Jason Verlinde

Nancy Sinatra - 60's pop icon (now in her 60's) meets Morrissey, a long time fan of her work. Fast friends (and later neighbours) she is keen to record one of his tracks, he provides her with his stunning Let Me Kiss You (from his You Are The Quarry album) and brokers her a record deal. Meanwhile, Nancy's daughter, AJ Azzarto (a musician herself) who has been trying to get her mother to record contemporary material since Sinatra posed nude for Playboy in 1995, recruits a bevy of famous fans to contribute to her mother's new album. Fans that include, amongst others, Jarvis Cocker, Thurston Moore, Bono & Jon Spencer (the fandom seems to be mutual as Sinatra has said that there is no one on this album that was not already in her record collection).

The result is a collection of songs that keep the essence of Sinatra's 60's sound but placed it in a modern context. The clean production fuses with the unique style to create something familiar yet fresh. Nancy's voice is immediately as arresting and unconventional as it was in the days of These Boots Are Made For Walkin'.

Nancy Sinatra opens with the excellent 'Burnin' Down The Spark' (written by Joey Burns of Calexico) and the stage is set with a Lee Hazlewood/Billy Strange-styled western mini-epic complete with Mariachi trumpets, pedal steel guitar. The album is bursting with great country and rock pop songs. There's also ballads (Morrissey's contribution Let Me Kiss You is even more stunning with Sinatra at the mike) and even a Vegas cabaret track originally written for her father by Bono & The Edge ('Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad'). 'Momma's Boy' places Sinatra in the context of a Sonic Youth song (it's good but perhaps the only track that doesn't make the most of her voice).

I have to disagree with some of the negative reviews of this CD.

I was expecting to be bored out of my mind, as I was with Nancy's

"country" CD in the 90s. I find this album to be a pleasant

surprise, with Nancy sounding great for her age. Yes, there are

a few quick spots where she "wobbles" a bit, but for the most

part, these performances would have been right at home on her

60's records. I like the way the production has a modern sound,

but the overall feel is definitely retro. And by that I mean

good, concisely written songs that have some substance, as

opposed to the dreck that rules the airwaves these days. There

are one or two less-than-great moments, particularly "Momma's

Boy", a song that stands out like a sore thumb. But out of 11

songs, I'd say 7 or 8 of them are really good. Standouts for

me are "Burning Down The Spark", "About A Fire", and "Bossman".

If you are a fan of fun pop records, I'd say give it a try!

"Nancy Sinatra" - the self titled 2004 album by the "classiest rocker in rockdom" more than lives-up to the name and heritage we have come to rely on from the name, "Sinatra" . . . and particularly from a Sinatra named "Nancy"!

The opening track, "Burnin' Down The Spark" catches you and hooks you into its rockin' melody and mariachi . . .and you know that Nancy Sinatra hasn't ever gone away . . . she's here . . . and get ready to enjoy the ride.

"Ain't No asy Way" is so reminiscent of Nancy's duet work with Lee Hazlewood . . .you think that Lee just might be lurking around the corner and might "pop in" at any minute. :)

"Don't Mean Nothning" is one of those "pondering" songs which Nancy does so well . . . one of those sad conversatons that we hold with ourselves when thngs go wrong that should have gone so right

My favorite track on this album is "Baby's Coming Back To Me" -- it's classic Nancy. . . could have appeared on anyof her albums and it purrrrrrfectly! -- this song sounds like what might have happened if Nancy Sinatra became John Lennon and became the lead singer for a sixties "girl group" . . . if you could "imagine" that! :) neat!

The last of the eleven tracks is Bono's "Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad" -- picure Nancy, standing by a piano, late night, "saloon singer" as her dad Frank might call it, delivering this intimate reverie. I can actually "see" Frank standing there, smiling . .. waiting to sing his part . . . well, Frank, not to worry, Nancy has done it for you . . .and I know that you're proud . . . she's kept the tradition alive . . . "Sinatra Lives!" --- and Bono wrote the perfect song to capture the spirit and the mood.

Nancy Sinatra is "now" . . . she is contemporary . .. she is current . . .

Got Nancy's new CD last Thurs in the UK - bad shop violated the street date. It's simply the best thing that she has ever done - well IMHO anyway. Just shows that with good production & a careful choice of modern day songwriters & songs the 'older lady' can still be meaningful & successful in 2004. Best tracks are 'Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad', 'Don't Mean Nothing' & Momma's Boy'. I can now add Nancy's name to those of Loretta Lynn & Marianne Faithfull who just seem to get better with age.
