Some Velvet Morning 45 by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood

February 2, 2011

Lee Hazlewood was the producer of Nancy Sinatra who found himself as her duet partner on four chart hits during the second half of the 1960’s.

He had had a small amount of success as a country singer but it turned out his bass voice was the perfect foil for Sinatra’s.

One of their memorable performances together was “Some Velvet Morning” which was released January 6, 1968. It would reach number 26 on the BILLBOARD MAGAZINE Pop Singles Chart during its 8 week stay.

While their duets together did not change the face of music, they were a fascinating part of the singles scene at the time.
