Celebrated archival label Light in the Attic have announced the second release from their Nancy Sinatra Archival Series; the definitive version of her debut LP, Boots. Nancy Sinatra’s Boots was originally released in 1966, and catapulted her to stardom.
it contained within its grooves an enduring anthem of empowerment that continues to resonate with new audiences today with no signs of slowing down.
Available to pre-order now and due out September 17th on vinyl, CD, 8-track, and across digital platforms, Boots marks Sinatra’s transformation from “Nancy nice lady,” as she said, to a fully-formed and self-assured figure of empowerment.
A Top 5 album at the time of its release, Sinatra scored a No. 1 hit on both sides of the Atlantic with “These Boots Are Made For Walkin’,” which earned 3 Grammy® nominations and sold over a million copies.
The album marked her first full-length release with writer, producer, and collaborator, Lee Hazlewood, which features a mixture of Hazlewood-penned tunes and selections from heavyweights, such as The Beatles, Bob Dylan, The Rolling Stones, and more.
In addition to the original 13 recordings, the forthcoming reissue includes two rare bonus tracks, including “The City Never Sleeps At Night” and the previously unreleased “For Some,” the latter of which is available now across all digital platforms as the first single being offered.
All of the tracks have been newly remastered from the original analog tapes by Grammy®-nominated engineer, John Baldwin. The vinyl configurations boast records pressed at Record Technology, Inc (RTI) and come housed in an expanded gatefold package featuring cover artwork completely restored from the original, iconic album photograph taken by Ed Thrasher.
The CD edition comes housed in a digipak with a 28-page booklet. In addition to the standard black wax, special limited-edition colored vinyl editions (such as “Walkin’ Boots Red” wax and “So Long, Babe Blue Swirl” wax) will be available exclusively at NancySinatra.com, LightInTheAttic.net, Vinyl Me, Please, Collector’s Choice, U.K. retailers, and Rough Trade.
