This 26-track reissue is subtitled “Greatest Hits 1965-71”, which is optimistic to say the least since, in her entire career, Nancy Sinatra had only half a dozen hits at best. The majority of songs collected here are by Oklahoma producer/writer Lee Hazlewood, who inaugurated Sinatra’s modest stardom with the classic “These Boots Are Made For Walkin'”, which inevitably opens this disc.

One for the discard pile.
