Nancy Sinatra & Lee Hazlewood - Some Velvet Morning (Official Music Video)

From Nancy & Lee, reissue out May 20 on Light in the Attic.

This is great. Light in the Attic is reissuing Nancy & Lee on vinyl, cassette, eight-track, and compact disc with remastered audio from the original analog tapes, unseen photos from Nancy Sinatra’s personal archive, and two bonus tracks from the album sessions. They’ve also released this amazing promotional video.

Which is even steamier than this one. Check out their 1967 performance of it on the Ed Sullivan Show below…
