Nancy Sinatra's hits with Lee Hazelwood made her a 1960s chart mainstay. Now, a younger generation of fans might well return her to the airwaves.

Nancy Sinatra's hits with Lee Hazelwood made her a 1960s chart mainstay. Now, a younger generation of fans might well return her to the airwaves. Songs on her self-titled album range from first single "Let Me Kiss You," which is penned and vocally backed by Morrissey (it is vintage Nancy), to Bono and the Edge's "Two Shots of Happy, One Shot of Sad," a saloon song originally written for her father. Among other highlights in a splendid set are Calexico's south-of-the-border-styled "Burnin' Down the Spark," Jarvis Cocker of Pulp's Phil Spector-sounding "Don't Let Him Waste Your Time," Steven Van Zandt's Ronettes-like "Baby Please Don't Go" and the psychedelic "Bossman," whose co-writers include daughter AJ and son-in-law Matt Azzarto.—JB
