    Nancy's Duets: Rarities & Classics

    Nancy's Tri-Tones with her dad (FS Show, 1957) ... Nancy with Frankie Avalon ("Who's Afraid Of Mother Goose," 1967) ... Nancy with Frankie (NBC Valentine's special, 1978) ... Nancy with AJ (at The Bottom Line in NYC, 2002)


    Fifty years ago, on April 15, 1967, Nancy & Frank's iconic duet, "Somethin' Stupid," hit number 1 on Billboard's Hot 100, the only father-daughter duet with that distinction. It would reside at the top for four of its thirteen weeks on the chart and be certified gold, selling several million copies around the world. For more details, see Nancy's blog: "Some Clever Lines to Say": “Somethin’ Stupid’s” 50th Anniversary.


    Of course, Nancy has recorded dozens of classic duets. Studio collaborations with her dad, Lee Hazlewood, Mel Tillis, Elvis Presley and Dean Martin (the first-ever electronic duet), among others, are widely known. However, there is a vast trove of rare, often unrecognized duets in Nancy's body of work from television and stage performances, most of which have never been issued on any format.

    The variety of material and approaches are extraordinary: creative medleys with Glen Campbell; a rendition of Randy Newman's "Love Story (You And Me)" with Tom Smothers; a jazzy studio demo with Billy Strange interpreting a Mel Tormé hit; the Country Top 20 covers of 1981 chart hits; concert performances with Eric Burdon and Brian Wilson for Allman Brothers and Beach Boys classics, respectively ...


    Nancy with Glen Campbell (Glen Campbell Goodtime Hour, 1969) ... Nancy with Mickey Gilley (Country Top 20, 1981) ... Nancy with Eric Burdon (at the Whisky A-Go-Go, 2000) ... Nancy with Brian Wilson (at BB King's in L.A., 1998)


    ... and a pair of Nancy's signature songs, with Wilco as her backing band. In an interview broadcast on BBC Radio's Woman's Hour (May 4, 2015), Nancy recalled this special collaboration.



    The new generations of people seem to enjoy the songs too. The band Wilco, they invited me to sing with them at a show last year. And I was shocked because when I walked out on the stage, there were like 15,000 people and they went a little crazy ... and it kind of blew me away. They all knew the words to "Boots" and "Bang Bang" and they sang along. If you can reach the next generation and the next generation, then I think you've accomplished something.

    Perry Como's Kraft Music Hall
    NBC: November 15, 1961

    A musical meeting of the generations with Perry Como, Rudy Vallee, Tommy Sands and Nancy features a 5-minute medley. The duo of Perry & Rudy perform songs from Rudy's career. Nancy & Tommy interpret FS standards: "I'll Never Smile Again (sung by Nancy) / Witchcraft (sung by Tommy)" and "All The Way" (Nancy & Tommy). Perry and Rudy join Nancy and Tommy for the medley's finale, "Young At Heart."

    Although a black and white kinescope has survived, the program was originally broadcast in color, apparently Nancy's first appearance in "living color on NBC."

    TV 1, Sweden: January 13, 1973

    A story song from the Nancy & Lee Again studio album, "Arkansas Coal's" emotional live performance is captured as a single camera pans back and forth between Nancy and Lee's narratives.

    with The Knickerbockers
    Shivaree
    Syndicated: February 5, 1966

    Nancy lip-synced (to her original track) this Jagger-Richards-penned Marianne Faithfull hit as the Knickerbockers, also featured guests on the program, appeared as her backing group. Nancy had recorded the song, as well as The Knickerbockers' "Lies," for her new Boots LP. In 1970, Knickerbockers drummer Jimmy Walker would record Mac Davis's "Chop No Wood," a song published by Nancy's B-n-B Music.

    Wilco frontman Jeff Tweedy's introduction for Nancy:

    We've been traveling all over the country and have been asking people that we love to come out and play with us. We've had a lot of our heroes come out and play with us. And I don’t think anyone has excited us more than tonight. We have one of our heroes, from the area:
    Nancy Sinatra, everybody...
    Nancy's August 4, 2013 tweet to Wilco:

    Beatles Medley: I've Just Seen A Face/Run For Your Life/Girl/Wait/Michelle
    with The Righteous Brothers
    Hullabaloo
    NBC: February 21, 1966

    Nancy's second appearance on Hullabaloo included this medley which displays her affinity for interpreting Lennon & McCartney material and her obvious chemistry with Bobby Hatfield & Bill Medley. Additionally the program included Nancy's live rendition of her soon-to-be number 1 hit, "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'" and her introduction for The Righteous Brothers' performance of "Soul And Inspiration." Nearly 40 years later, Nancy would collaborate with Bill's daughter, McKenna, and dear friend Connie Stevens on a Chuck Berry classic at Rolling Thunder (see "Johnny B. Goode").

    "Blondes" had been a piece of special material written by Billy Barnes for the November 10, 1969 episode of Rowan & Martin's Laugh-In. Nancy's solo performance of "Blondes" was heard on the Nancy & Lee In Las Vegas TV special.

    Quote Originally Posted by Nancy View Post

    Blowin' In The Wind
    with Darlene Love
    Live at the Sahara Tahoe

    Nancy has mentioned the existence of this recording, but has lamented its substandard audio quality. Nancy interpreted Dylan's "It Ain't Me Babe" for the Boots LP. Her Bones Howe-produced version of "Like A Rolling Stone" had been recorded in the mid-1970s, but was not issued until 1998's How Does It Feel? CD.

It's such a shame we didn't record those shows properly so we could share them with all of you.


    Born To Be Wild

    Quote Originally Posted by Nancy View Post

    In a nutshell the songs tell the story of "girl meets boy, girl gets boy, girl loses boy, girl gets sad, girl gets angry and then moves on."

    A June 21, 1971 AP wirephoto of Nancy and Thog reported:

    Nancy Sinatra clowns with Thog, one of the Muppet characters who moved from Sesame Street to the Las Vegas Strip for the summer. The Muppets appear with Nancy and Frank Sinatra Jr. in the showroom of the International Hotel. Muppet creator Jim Henson says it could be a preview for a full-length Muppet production on Broadway.

    It was a work in progress that didn't progress far enough, but there are some real gems on those tapes – especially the Muppets. They will knock your socks off.

    We were in junior high and we formed a little trio and my dad put us on his TV show. Why, I do not know. ... It's cute. ...

    Janie [now] lives up north. She has a little farm. She sends me olive oil now and then. Belinda, or "Binny" as we called her, I don't know where Binny is. I have to track her down.

    The Academy of Country Music & "Country Top 20"

    The 53rd annual Academy of Country Music Awards will be broadcast live from the MGM Grand in Las Vegas by CBS on April 15th. Fifty years ago, Nancy & Lee were nominated in the category of "Top Duet" (listed in the ACM's Nominations archive as "Top Duo"), for the third awards show, held at the Century Plaza Hotel in L.A. on March 4, 1968.


    Thirteen years later, in the fall of 1981, Nancy co-hosted Country Top 20, a series of monthly syndicated specials executive produced by Bob Banner, whose production company was also responsible for the weekly music program Solid Gold. Taped in the main showroom of the Imperial Palace Hotel in Las Vegas, Country Top 20 presented a countdown of the latest hits in the genre, compiled from information provided by trade magazine Radio & Records.


    At the time, Nancy was a fixture on the country album and singles charts for her collaborations with Mel Tillis: Mel & Nancy, "Texas Cowboy Night," and two-sided hit "Play Me Or Trade Me"/"Where Would I Be."


    In addition to introducing the acts, Nancy performed solo and duet renditions of songs on the survey. Among Nancy's collaborators (pictured, left to right): her first co-host, Mickey Gilley; Steve Wariner, as a substitute for Mel on "Texas Cowboy Night"; her second co-host, Johnny Lee; and Gail Davies, the first female record producer in country music.


    Trailblazing artists Nancy and Gail performed Barbara Mandrell's then-current hit, "Wish You Were Here." The song was penned by Kye Fleming and Dennis Morgan, a prolific songwriting duo who supplied material for Mandrell and other Tom Collins-produced artists in the late 1970s and early '80s.


    On the duet of "Wish You Were Here," Nancy and Gail's voices blend really well, an excellent example of Nancy's talent for interpreting country.

    Note: The audio track on this rare video is a little rough.
