In 1966, Nancy Sinatra put herself on the radar by not only costarring in the outlaw biker film The Wild Angels but also releasing her debut solo album, Boots. Together, the movie and album helped Sinatra shape her image of a tough young woman divorced from her father Frank’s cocktail-swilling generation. Here, she opens with a symphonic pop rendition of The Rolling Stones’ As Tears Go By that’s crossed with Sergio Mendes–inspired bossa nova. Sinatra’s performance sounds more seductive and coy than the regal version sung by Marianne Faithful in 1964
Unexceptional debut album built around "These Boots Are Made for Walkin'" and covers of contemporary rock and pop hits, with a couple of other Lee Hazlewood songs. The CD reissue adds a few rare early single tracks (all penned by Hazlewood) as bonus cuts, as well as the mono single version of "Boots.
