    Nancy's Singles Discography


    Nancy's four U.S. picture sleeve singles

    This thread (inspired by the release of Cherry Smiles: The Rare Singles) surveys Nancy's 7-inch vinyl singles, as well as CD, cassette, cartridge, flexi-disc, and digital (download) singles. Unless otherwise noted, these singles are the U.S. releases. Nancy's non-U.S. 45 picture sleeves are displayed in the International Nancy thread. Non-U.S. releases featuring recordings or versions that were not originally issued in the U.S. are included and highlighted in blue. For the following posts, I have divided the chronology into seven sections, based on production, label, and format considerations.

    Section A: Reprise 45s, Part One (1961-1965)
    Section B: Reprise 45s, Part Two (1965-1968)
    Section C: Reprise 45s, Part Three (1968-1971)
    Section D: RCA, Private Stock, and Elektra 45s (1971-1981)
    Section E: Digital Era Releases (1995-2016)
    Section F: Reprise Jukebox EPs and Warner Bros./Reprise Promotional EPs... Plus...
    Section G: Reissues

    Release information is listed in the following manner:
    Catalog # Title (Year Of Issue)

    [PS] designates a record which was released in a picture sleeve.
    Images of picture sleeves, labels, music industry ads, sheet music covers, and jukebox title strips are displayed in corresponding posts.

    RIAA Gold Singles Certifications are highlighted in gold. In the 1960s, gold plaques were awarded to artists for singles sales in excess of 1,000,000 units.

    Nancy's Singles Discography, Section A


    Reprise 45s, Part One (1961-1965)

    With the exceptions of "True Love" and "To Know Him Is To Love Him," the recordings on Nancy's early singles are contained on the Bubblegum Girl, Vol. 1 and Bubblegum Girl, Vol. 2 collections. The remixed version of "True Love" (in wide stereo and extended by 15 seconds) is included on the Sheet Music CD (1998). "To Know Him Is To Love Him" has not had an authorized release in any digital format.

    Italian recordings: "Pensa A Me," the Italian vocal version of "Think Of Me," originally released in Italy in 1962, made its worldwide digital debut in 2005 as part of Bubblegum Girl, Vol. 1. "Ecco La Sposa" (aka "Ecco Esposa/Espossa"), the Italian vocal version of "There Goes The Bride," was first released on Bubblegum Girl, Volume 2. See Section B for the release of "Vero Amore," "True Love" sung in Italian. (Additional details can be found in Pensa a Nancy in Italia.)

    The Billboard Book Of Number 1 Hits offers this observation:

    "A full-page ad [pictured below] in the August 14 [1961] issue of Billboard introduced her [Nancy's] first single, 'Cuff Links and a Tie Clip,' promising 'the biggest DJ tumult in years is about to begin!' They were right about the tumult, they were just five years off."

    Songwriter credits follow the titles. Unless otherwise noted, producer and arranger/conductor credits apply to both the A-side and B-side titles.

    ¹The labels on U.S. Reprise 20,045 list "To Know Him Is To Love Him" as the A-side, and "Like I Do" as the B-side. However, the January 20, 1962 issue of Billboard, in its "Reviews of New Singles," indicates that "Like I Do" is the A-side. Following Nancy's international commercial triumphs with the single, Reprise reissued 20,045 in the U.S. (with "Like I Do" as the A-side" this time), as evidenced by ads in the February 23, 1963 issues of Billboard and Cash Box.

    ²The track sequence on the Italian picture sleeve (1. "Think Of Me," 2. "June, July And August," 3. "Pensa A Me") differs from the 45's actual configuration as noted above.

    ³Billboard's November 17, 1962 review and comments from Reprise's national promo director Ernie Farrell ("Reprise’s Ernie Farrell buzzes that there’s been instant response to Nancy Sinatra’s latest, 'You Can Have Any Boy'" [Cash Box 11-24-62]), indicate that "You Can Have Any Boy" was the U.S. A-side.


    Cuff Links And A Tie Clip / Not Just Your Friend

    Left: This August 14, 1961 Billboard ad heralded Nancy's debut as a recording artist.
    Right: Regarding the then-forthcoming release of "Cuff Links And A Tie Clip," a "Spotlight" column in the June 30, 1961 issue of Life Magazine introduced Nancy with this image by photographer Leigh Wiener, and declared, "...Reprise expects Cuff Links to draw the kids."



    In her 1985 book, Frank Sinatra, My Father, Nancy shares the excitement of hearing her recording of the rhythm and blues song "Not Just Your Friend," the flip side of "Cuff Links," on the radio:

    "The first time I heard the record on the radio I was in the car listening to my favorite station, KCMJ, which featured mostly black artists. The deejay said, 'Here's Frank Sinatra's daughter's first effort.' I was so startled to hear my R & B song played on this station and so thrilled to hear myself on the radio, I drove straight to KCMJ and got the disc jockey's autograph (talk about young)."

    Picture sleeves accompanied only four of Nancy's U.S. 45 records, three original releases and one reissue. "Cuff Links" was not only Nancy's debut single, but also her first picture sleeve.


    Like I Do / To Know Him Is To Love Him

    Although "Like I Do" was not a commercial success in the U.S., it was a big international hit during 1962 and '63. The May 26, 1962 issue of Billboard reported Top 10 chart positions for "Like I Do" in Italy and South Africa. Later in 1962, it was also a Top 10 hit in Holland. In early 1963, it was a chart success in Japan. Weekly chart positions for Italy, South Africa, Holland, and Japan can be found in Post #72.

    The charts from May 26,1962 are pictured (left and right), with the February 23, 1963 Billboard ad for the U.S. reissue and the U.S. 45 in its company sleeve (center).


    You Can Have Any Boy / Tonight You Belong To Me

    Nancy's recording of Patience & Prudence's 1956 hit "Tonight You Belong To Me" was a "Best Seller" in Japan, charting in the Top 10 in April 1963. In the U.S., Nancy had appeared on Cash Box's December 1, 1962 "Radio Active Chart" ("a feature designed to indicate which new records key radio stations in every important market throughout the country have added to their play list during the preceding week"). See Post #73 for more information.


    "You Can Have Any Boy" was previously recorded by Juliana: arranged and conducted by its writers, Buddy Kaye and Philip Springer, and produced by Hugo & Luigi, for a 1961 RCA Victor single (47-7906).

    Nancy has commented on her 1962 Don Costa-produced cover version:


    In 2002, Nancy shared this perspective:




    One Way / Cruel War

    "Some people say that love is a passing fling
    And then they warn you don't give your heart away,
    But we will prove our love is a lasting thing
    Just made for two, for me and you."

    [lyrics from "One Way" by Nancy Sinatra]

    With its youthfully optimistic lyrics, "One Way" represents one of two self-penned recordings by Nancy. The other, "It's Spring," (also recorded in the early 1960s) was not released until 2005, on Bubblegum Girl, Vol. 2. "One Way" is contrasted by its flip side, Nancy's moving cover of Peter, Paul and Mary's adaptation of the traditional folk song "Cruel War." Here are a promo label and a jukebox title strip.

    Nancy's Singles Discography, Section B


    Reprise 45s, Part Two (1965-1968)

    The "DJ tumult" described by the Billboard ad began here. These singles cover the era of the musical triumvirate of Nancy, Lee Hazlewood (as producer), and Billy Strange (as arranger/conductor).

    In addition to its original 45 release, "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" b/w "The City Never Sleeps At Night" was issued in the "Pocket Disc" format, a type of flexi-disc. Pocket Discs were manufactured by the Americom Corporation in the late 1960s for Reprise Records and several other major labels. These flexible discs are 3 and 7/8 inches in diameter and play at 33 and 1/3 rpm.¹ See Section F for The Sound Of Warner/Reprise/Atlantic Starring... promotional Pocket Disc.

    During these years, some of Nancy's recordings were released as Muntz Mini-Pak singles. Designed by Earl Muntz as an alternative to vinyl 45s and EPs, these 4-track, stereo tape cartridges hold up to four songs. Because this singles format was produced for a brief period of time, Nancy's Mini-Pak releases are extremely rare. Titles and catalog #s (for the releases which I have been able to locate, so far) are listed in the footnotes for this section.²/³

    Unless otherwise noted, these titles were produced by Lee Hazlewood and arranged/conducted by Billy Strange.

    ⁵The Nancy & Lee album (Reprise 6273) was certified gold on November 19, 1970.

    ⁶"Vero Amore" has not been released in the U.S.


    These Boots Are Made For Walkin' / The City Never Sleeps At Night

    In Frank Sinatra, My Father, Nancy recalls the single's chart success:

    "I had promised my dad the first number one for his label. I was, in fact, off by one record. Old friend Dean Martin's 'Everybody Loves Somebody Sometime' was the first [the week of August 15, 1964]. 'These Boots Are Made For Walkin'' was the second [the week of February 26, 1966]."

    A December 25, 1965 Billboard "Spotlight Singles" review proclaiming, "...Miss Sinatra has top of the chart potential with this fine folk-rock material from the pen of Lee Hazlewood," and the January 22, 1966 "Winners!" ad (below, left) predicted the single's great impact. Also pictured are the sheet music, the A-side label from the original 45, and the B-side label from the Pocket Disc release.

    How Does That Grab You, Darlin'? / The Last Of The Secret Agents?

    As the highly successful follow-up to "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'," "How Does That Grab You, Darlin'?" was in a similar vein, with Red Rhodes' dobro complementing Nancy's vocal, as Chuck Berghofer's quarter-tone bass run had done on "Boots." Pictured: Sheet Music (left); labels (center); the April 9, 1966 ad (right).

    'The Last Of The Secret Agents' Theatre Lobby Spots

    On this promotional 45, which was played in movie theatre lobbies, the motion picture's stars, Marty Allen and Steve Rossi, talk about the film. Clips of Nancy's recording of the theme are included. The program repeats twice on each side. This Paramount Pictures record has no catalog designation; "P-Secret Agents Lobby A" and "P-Secret Agents Lobby B" are marked in between the run-out grooves on sides A and B, respectively. Displayed above the 45's labels is the Paramount Merchandising Manual and Press Book's description.



    Lightning's Girl / Until It's Time For You To Go

    "Better stop your groovin' round
    Some other rooster's hen,
    If Lightning ever catches you
    He's got to do you in,
    (spoken) In about two minutes!"

    [lyrics from "Lightning's Girl" by Lee Hazlewood]

    In the liner notes for the Sundazed CD release of How Does That Grab You?, Nancy describes "Lightning's Girl" (a bonus track on the CD) as, "snarky." That attitude is also conveyed by the single's picture sleeve, Nancy's second in the U.S. The September 2, 1967 Billboard ad, noting Nancy's "hit streak," appears on the left; the September 16, 1967 full-page "Lightning's Girl" ad, center; and the 45 picture sleeve, right.

    Lady Bird / Sand

    Also in the How Does That Grab You? CD liner notes, Nancy reflects on the significance of "Sand":

    "Everybody likes the song 'Sand.' I think it's a real fantasy/fairy tale kind of recording. A lot of that was Billy Strange's arrangement. The combination of talents painted pictures that drew you in, absorbed you. You could bring your own experience to it, or you could take the song into your own relationship and act accordingly. 'Sand' was Lee's 'Norwegian Wood.'"


    Identical photographs, with monochromatic variations, appear on the sheet music for the single's songs. This photo also appears on the back cover of Nancy's Country, My Way album.

    "Famous American Stars" Series Presents An "Interview Special" With Nancy Sinatra

    This 7-inch, 33-and-1/3 rpm single promoted the Movin' With Nancy television special. Side 1 features Nancy's "complete" interview with commentator Dick Strout. Side 2 contains the "open-end" interview "for use with local commentator."


    100 Years / See The Little Children

    "I'm not gonna say everything is OK
    'Cause OK is not the way that I feel,
    I'm not gonna be any fool's Christmas tree
    Let 'em hang gifts on me that aren't real."

    [lyrics from "100 Years" by Lee Hazlewood]


    Billboard's March 16, 1968 "Top 60 Pop Spotlight" recognized the single's power:

    "Driving blues ballad with strong lyric line. Flip is a poignant all-programming ballad, beautifully performed. Both are equally potent sales items."

    Here are a trio of "100 Years" labels (the earlier red label, the later "steamboat" label, and the white promo label) and the March 30, 1968 ad for a trio of new Reprise releases.

    ¹Regarding the 1968 Teldec release of "Kids" b/w "It's Such A Lonely Time Of Year," see "pre-album singles" notes in "Follow-Up To Release Date Research" from The Sinatra Family Wish You A Merry Christmas thread.

    ²The 45 label for "Drummer Man" credits Hal Blaine as the drummer.

    ³According to the bonus track information on the Sundazed CD release of Country, My Way: The Highway Song / Are You Growing Tired Of My Love single was assigned the U.S. Reprise catalog #0869. However, the Goldmine Price Guide To 45 RPM Records (6th Edition) states that this single was released "only in England" (even though it had other non-U.S. releases). Assuming that it was, in fact, released in the U.S., I have never encountered the U.S. version of this single. I have been able to locate many copies of the U.K. release, which was assigned the catalog #20869.

    ⁴The 45 label for "How Are Things In California?" credits "Nancy Sinatra With The Baylor Bros." (aka The Bahler Bros., Tom and John).

    ⁵"Did You Ever" and "Back On The Road" were released as a Reprise label single prior to their inclusion on the RCA album Nancy & Lee Again (1972).

    ⁶The remixed version of "Flowers In The Rain," without rain and thunder effects, was released in the U.S. on the How Does It Feel CD (1998). The sound effects were restored for the song's appearance on The Essential Nancy Sinatra (2006) and Kid Stuff (2008). See Nancy's comments here

    Note: There are a few variations in the mixes of "Flowers In The Rain." The original 45 version, with Nancy's double-tracked vocal, features sound effects at the beginning and end, plus a clap of thunder midway (following the line "keeping me cool") and an additional brief instrumental interlude at the end just before Nancy's vocal on the fade-out. The How Does It Feel? version, with a single track vocal, has no sound effects and no interlude before the fade-out. The Essential Nancy Sinatra and Kid Stuff versions employ the How Does It Feel? mix, but with rain and thunder at the beginning and end (no clap of thunder in the middle). (On The Essential Nancy Sinatra, the track seems to have greater emphasis on the lower range.)


    Good Time Girl / Old Devil Moon

    "Good Time Girl" is one of seven Nancy recordings written or co-written by Mac Davis, aka "Scott Davis." He also penned "God Knows I Love You" and "Hello L.A., Bye Bye Birmingham" (both with Delaney Bramlett), "Memories" (with Billy Strange), and "Home" (with Larry Collins), as well as "I'm Just In Love" and "Kids" (both credited as "Scott Davis"). During this period, Mac Davis was part of the roster at B-n-B Music (Boots and Billy), Nancy and Billy Strange's music publishing company.

    Also: Mac Davis, Bob Lind and Freddy Weller wrote "Sock It To Me Sunshine." A Billboard "Bubbling Under" chart 45 by The Curtain Calls (Dot 17093), "Sock It To Me Sunshine" was performed by Nancy on the May 26, 1968 episode of The Ed Sullivan Show.

    And Nancy has performed the Billy Strange & Mac Davis-penned "A Little Less Conversation" (an Elvis Presley chart hit) in concert, most notably at "Elvis The Festival" (in Vienna, Austria, on October 24 and 25, 2002 with her KAB, Elvis's TCB Band and the Sweet Inspirations).

    Pictured: Sheet music (left); 45 A-side label (center); and the November 30, 1968 Billboard ad.

    The Highway Song / Are You Growing Tired Of My Love

    "The Highway Song" and "Are You Growing Tired Of My Love" were produced under the aegis of the legendary Mickie Most. Most also produced Nancy's "Zodiac Blues," which was eventually released on 1999's You Go-Go Girl! and 2008's Kid Stuff, and the unreleased "Colors Are Changing."

    Here are the sheet music and the U.K. 45 A and B-side labels.

    Hook And Ladder / Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone?

    "Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone?" and "Hook And Ladder," along with "Glory Road" and "Flowers In The Rain," represent Nancy's recordings with producers Andy Wickham and Lenny Waronker.

    Nancy's remixed version of "Is Anybody Goin' To San Antone?" can be found on Cherry Smiles: The Rare Singles. The song had been a 1970 hit single by Charley Pride (RCA Victor 47-9806).

    Written and previously recorded by Norman Greenbaum, his version of "Hook And Ladder" was included on his 1970 album Back Home Again (Reprise RS-6422).

    This single was released with Nancy's third U.S. picture sleeve.



    Billboard magazine ads:

    Right: An amusing March 27, 1971 ad promotes multiple new releases with this text:

    "Records are not simply made, they are born. Like everyone else these days, Warner/Reprise endures a long-term pregnancy for the birth of a hit. We are fortunate in having a good obstetrician (played here by Ron Saul, our Director of National Promotion), who just delivered not one infant record, but a litter...And (blushing confession) it looks like we're already pregnant again. A forward-looking company, we've picked names for our new offspring: HOOK AND LADDER by Nancy Sinatra / R0991..."

    Glory Road (stereo) / Glory Road (mono) and
    Flowers In The Rain / Glory Road

    In addition to Neil Diamond's "Glory Road," Nancy has also interpreted his "Holly Holy" and "Play Me," both of which are included on 2013's Shifting Gears. The remixed version of "Glory Road" is available on Cherry Smiles: The Rare Singles and as a digital 45.

    Prior to Nancy's "Glory Road" recording session (February 13, 1971), her producer, Lenny Waronker, played the same role for the Everly Brothers' "Glory Road" session, with both Neil Diamond and the Beau Brummels' Ron Elliott (who has also worked with Nancy) on acoustic guitar (Western Recorders: March 28, 1969). Their version would not be released until 2006, on the Chained To A Memory box set. Another Nancy-Everly Brothers connection: While Nancy and the Everlys were labelmates at RCA, Don & Phil were special guests in Nancy's shows at the Congo Room in the Sahara Hotel, Las Vegas (May 15-28, 1973).



    Several of Nancy's promotional 45s, including "Glory Road," were released as double A-sided records, featuring a mono mix (the standard for this era) on one side, and a stereo mix on the other.

    In the U.K., "Glory Road" was released on the flip side of Nancy's version of The Move's "Flowers In The Rain." Nancy covered The Move's "California Man" on the California Girl CD. Both "Move" songs were written by Roy Wood.

    *The Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer / Winter Wonderland single was issued as part of a multi-disc promotional package for the Elektra LP Christmas Country. The August 29, 1981 issue of Billboard reported its forthcoming release:

    "Radio stations will be serviced with a seven-inch tape box affixed with the album's cover and containing five double-sided singles, thereby covering all 10 LP selections."


    Kind Of A Woman / It's The Love (That Keeps It All Together)

    A January 6, 1973 Cash Box ad promoted "Kind Of A Woman" as "The Liberated Single," with the following text:

    "When you hear Nancy Sinatra's new single
    'Kind of a Woman' you're in for a shock.
    It is sensual but not for the sake of
    sensationalism. She thinks it's about time
    someone sings it straight about what
    kind of man her kind of woman wants." ...

    "Nancy Sinatra, 'Kind of a Woman.'
    Sexy, yes. Sex object, no.
    Destined, definitely."





    For Nancy's revelations regarding the song "Kind Of A Woman," click here.

    On the flip side, Nancy covers "It's The Love (That Keeps It All Together)." Written by Kim Carnes, it was previously recorded by Kim and Dave (Carnes and Ellingson) for a 1972 single on Jimmy Bowen's Amos label (Amos 167). There are other Nancy catalog connections to Kim Carnes and Dave Ellingson. Kim penned "Fell In Love With A Poet," which appears on Nancy's Woman album and Sheet Music CD. Dave composed "Kinky Love" (which is listed in this section of the discography). Producer Jimmy Bowen and arranger Larry Muhoberac, who worked on this single and the Woman album, also produced and arranged (respectively) Kim's debut album, Rest On Me (Amos AAS 7016), which contains Kim's version of "Fell In Love With A Poet."

    Annabell Of Mobile / She Played Piano And He Beat The Drums

    For the strong story-song "Annabell Of Mobile," Nancy collaborated with producer Snuff Garrett, arranger Al Capps, and writer Bobby Russell, the same team behind Vicki Lawrence's "The Night The Lights Went Out In Georgia" (Bell 45303) and Russell's own recording of "Saturday Morning Confusion" (United Artists 50788).

    The June 14, 1975 Billboard ad welcoming Nancy to Larry Uttal's singles-oriented Private Stock label is displayed with the mono label from the promo single.



    Indian Summer (Lété Indien) / Dolly And Hawkeye

    Lee Hazlewood released his own solo versions of "Indian Summer" and "Dolly And Hawkeye" in Germany and Sweden. His recording of "Indian Summer" was issued in 1976 as a single b/w "Whole Lotta Shakin' Goin' On" (RCA 0727), and was also included on his 20th Century Lee album (RCA YSPL 1-575). Lee's version of "Dolly And Hawkeye" is contained on his 1977 album Back On The Street Again (EMI 1C-066 32553).

    The label for "Indian Summer" misspells Lee Hazlewood's name, as well as writers Toto Cutugno's as "Cutugho" and Frank Musker's as "Muskar."
    It's For My Dad / A Gentle Man Like You

    "He always was a rock
    When I needed one,
    He gave me good advice
    When I needed some."

    [lyrics from "It's For My Dad" by Lana Chapel]

    In the For My Dad CD maxi-single liner notes, Nancy reflects on the emotion attached to this single:

    "It was hard for me to sing because the lyric made me cry and I couldn't complete a take so we did it in pieces. When I played it for Dad he gave me a big hug and with tears in his eyes said, 'Thank you.'"

    Nancy recorded "It's For My Dad" at Media Sound Studios in New York City. In the December 17, 1977 issue of Billboard, a multi-page tribute to Media Sound includes this photo of Nancy recording at the well-known studio. The stereo side of the promo 45 is displayed below.

    Let's Keep It That Way / One Jump Ahead Of The Storm

    With Nancy's move to the Elektra label, she once again ventured into countrified musical territory, working with Jimmy Bowen and Billy Strange, on this release and the succeeding duets with Mel Tillis. "Let's Keep It That Way" has also been covered by Tanya Tucker (1977), Anne Murray (1978), and Mac Davis (1980).

    Pictured: The Elektra Records press kit photo (by Ron Slenzak) for Mel And Nancy; and the labels from the stereo side of the stereo/mono promotional issue of "Let's Keep It That Way," the commercial release of "Texas Cowboy Night," the 10-inch acetate of "Rudolph The Red-Nosed Reindeer" (single-sided), and a promotional copy of "Play Me Or Trade Me" (b/w "Where Would I Be").

    Bone Dry and Now I Have Everything [Promo CDs]

    The extremely rare Bone Dry and Now I Have Everything promotional CD-singles were issued without any artwork. In comparison to the album version, the single mix of "Now I Have Everything" features a guitar instrumental break in place of the piano, and less prominent strings throughout the track.



    Let Me Kiss You and
    Burnin' Down The Spark

    "Close your eyes
    And think of someone
    You physically admire
    And let me kiss you."

    [lyrics from "Let Me Kiss You" by Morrissey and Alain Whyte]

    On the the forty-third anniversary of the ad for "Cuff Links And A Tie Clip," the August 14, 2004 issue of Billboard reviewed "Let Me Kiss You":

    "After a lengthy break from the chart, Sinatra may indeed return to it with the dreamy 'Let Me Kiss You.' Co-penned by Morrissey, who also provides backing vocals, the poignant 'Kiss' is tailor-made for Sinatra."

    The U.S. CD single for "Let Me Kiss You" features a photo of Nancy and Morrissey by Amanda. The white sleeve version of "Let Me Kiss You" and the CD single for "Burnin' Down The Spark" are U.K. releases.




    Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad [Promo CD]

    The promotional CD-single of "Two Shots Of Happy, One Shot Of Sad" was issued by BMG in France. Sanctuary employed BMG for distribution in France and the Benelux countries.

    Nancy met the Audio Bullys, Tom Dinsdale and Simon Franks, at the Polo Lounge of the Beverly Hills Hotel, in 2006 (also pictured below).

    The artwork for this digital 45 incorporates the Cherry Smiles portrait of Nancy painted by Ralph Wolfe Cowan.



    To Ardent

    Nancy is featured on Black Devil Disco Club's (aka Bernard Fevre's) "To Ardent," which is included on the album Circus. The recording was released in various mixes as a digital EP, on May 23, 2011. The "Junior Claristidge Remix" is not included on any of the EP configurations, but is available as an individual download and as part of the Amazon MP3 version of Circus and Black Devil Disco Club's Magnetic Circus (2012) compilation. An extended mix of the original version of "To Ardent" is listed on the iTunes "Bonus Tracks Version" of the Circus album.



    The remixes, including "Grovesnor Remix Radio Edit" (track 5), were issued on a physical format as a promotional-only, 6-track CD.

    From the notes on the back of the CD box:

    "Never was there such a strange and wondrous musical meeting as the one you have here before you. Two of the most original musical talents to inhabit the known universe collide to create an intensely bright 'shining star'. This really is Sci Fi Disco."

    The back of the promo CD insert is pictured below.

    A poignant, previously unreleased version of Nancy's classic cover of Skeeter Davis's 1963 hit single, "End Of The World" (RCA Victor 47-8098), is available for individual download, and as part of the Download For Good collection, which has also been issued as the limited edition, vinyl box set Music That Changes The World (2012). Nancy originally released "End Of The World" on her Country, My Way LP (1967).

    Proceeds from "End Of The World (Remix)," as well as the tracks by other artists featured on Download For Good, benefit the David Lynch Foundation’s educational outreach programs. The following quote from Nancy appears on her page at David Lynch Foundation Music:

    "Nothing is more important to insure the peaceful future of the planet than nurturing and educating its youth. The effects of a good education, art, and culture, bring an awareness that builds character and a spirit that informs the soul, allowing a person to change the world for the better."

    The beautiful artwork (left) by Daniel Edlen, associated with the newly released version of “End Of The World,” is based on Ron Joy’s iconic photo of Nancy in the recording studio (right).




    Holly Holy

    Nancy recalls "Holly Holy" composer Neil Diamond's advice regarding the song's crescendo and electrifying climax:


    "A nice thing happened with Glory Road. I sent it to Neil Diamond along with the remastered Holly Holy and he sent me a note raving about the tracks. That made me so happy. When you can please the composer you have accomplished something!"

    Nancy refers to "Holy Holy" as "the premier track" from her Shifting Gears collection.

    "I guess in a way it is a single now, an introductory single for the album."

    For additional details, see “Sing It Out, Sing It Strong”: “Shifting Gears.”





    Song Of Love For Danny

    From SongsOfLove.org in 2002:

    "On Monday, January 21, 2002, Nancy Sinatra personally presented a 'Song of Love' to a smiling Danny Ocegueda at Cedars-Sinai Medical Center in Los Angeles. Danny is currently battling cancer."

    Originally available as a charity CD in 2002, the song was released digitally (as a download) on March 25, 2016.

    Nancy's Singles Discography, Section F

    Reprise Jukebox EPs ... Plus

    Jukebox EPs (extended plays), aka jukebox mini-LPs or compact 33s, were created by record companies from the early 1960s until the mid 1970s. Generally issued in stereo, they are 7-inch, vinyl records with a small hole, which play at 33-and-1/3 rpm. Packaged in cardboard or paper sleeves with a sheet of jukebox title strips, they usually feature four to six songs (two or three on each side).




    Nancy's Reprise jukebox EPs were also known as "Seeburg Little LPs." Seeburg 7-inch stereo EPs were made available for jukebox programming, beginning in 1963. Garwin Sales took over distribution of the Little LP program from the Seeburg Corporation in late 1967. Seeburg catalog/part #s are listed at the top of the title strip sheets, which were packaged over the back cover under the shrink wrap.

    Nancy's Jukebox Record of the Year Award

    The November 5, 1966 issue of Billboard, in "Coin Machine News," reported that, in the annual poll of U.S. jukebox operators, Nancy and Frank shared the award for "'best jukebox record of the year'": Nancy for "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'"; Frank for "Strangers In The Night."

    "The Sinatras were each tendered honors because they ran in virtually a dead heat in the voting by MOA [Music Operators of America] members...Miss Sinatra polled far and away the most votes of any female artist."

    The Seeburg "Stereo Showcase" Jukebox

    Nancy appears in two versions of the ad for the Seeburg Stereo Showcase. Note the Boots cover on the jukebox's display.

    Rhino Lil' Bit of Gold Series
    & Teldec 3" Classic Tracks Series

    The short-lived 3-inch CD format was sold by Rhino in a long blister pack (left). Because 3-inch CDs were not compatible with some early CD players, some of these packages included a Rhino "disc adaptor" (pictured below) for extending the disc's diameter.

    In 1989, Teldec/Warner Communications issued a 3-inch CD (Teldec 246 874-2 XS) in Germany as part of the "3" [3-inch] Classic Tracks" series, featuring "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'," "Jackson," "Summer Wine," and "Somethin' Stupid." The credits on the disc and the back cover indicate that the tracks were digitally remixed ("ADD").

    Here's a question Nancy can answer when time allows. I've always wondered if the sweater on the 45 cover of CUFFLINKS is the same one you are wearing on the cover of COUNTRY, MY WAY? I somehow have forgotten to ask this before but noticed it immediately when COUNTRY was released. Is it possible, and if so, then I take it that the sweater is one of your own, not something used primarily for the photo(s).
    To my little fur baby Sushi, If love could have kept you alive, you would have lived forever...

    Thank you, everyone. I'm glad you like the thread, Nancy. Doing the research was very interesting. I had not been aware of many of the vinyl reissues (which will be posted in Section G).
