Nancy Sinatra :: Hello L.A., Bye Bye Birmingham

In reference to the LA Burnout comps last week, I was reminded of this Nancy Sinatra nugget found on the reissue of 1967’s Country, My Way. Exercising a time tested theme in song (i.e., the whole leaving home to ‘make it’ in Los Angeles, thang), Sinatra’s take here is a very worthy addition to the lineage. As with the best of her stuff from this era (often with Hazlewood), the idiosyncratic instrumentation really pays off, especially the discordant drums.

  1. Geez! She had the best band money could buy behind her. TW’s right, it is a fantastic LP.

  2. Ya know, I think this song is all about the importance of every decision / action we make. If the narrator hadn’t bought that jug of wine and po boy, she/he probably would have had enough money to make it further than Little Rock – and think of all the adventures missed in that case! Anyway…
