Junk Shop Vinyl: Nancy and Lee

Taking a cue from super-readable blog,  Diggin' It, I thought I'd post a bit of junk shop vinyl. This is the 1968  Reprise album by  Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazelwood. It's a weird, though surprisingly successful,  pairing and reading the track listing you know this is going to be a patchy album; even the good is going to be over-shadowed by the spooky psyche-pop masterpiece  Some Velvet Morning. Here is that track listing. You've Lost That Lovin' Feelin' Elusive Dreams Greenwich Village Folk Song Salesman Summer Wine Storybook Children Sundown, Sundown Jackson Some Velvet Morning Sand Lady Bird I've Been Down So Long (It Looks Like Up to Me) See what I mean? Some Velvet Morning has been much covered and recently most notably by  Kate and Bobby... All that for 49p at  Barnardo's in Cardigan.
