Growing up as the child of one of the greatest icons in American music can't be easy, but Nancy Sinatra managed to create a sound and style for herself fully separate from that of her very famous father, and her sexy but strong-willed persona has endured with nearly the same strength as the image of the Chairman of the Board.
Nancy Sinatra's sophomore effort How Does That Grab You? sticks to her usual LP formula: a hit title track, a bunch of pop covers ("Bang Bang (My Baby Shot Me Down)" is the best), and some unremarkable Lee Hazlewood songs, the exception being the classy Nancy & Lee duet "Sand." There are four notable bonus tracks on the CD reissue from 45's: the fuzz-guitar-driven single "Lightning's Girl" (one of her very best songs), a cover of Buffy Sainte-Marie's "Until It's Time for You to Go," the single "The Last of the Secret Agents," and the breezy California pop duet with her father, "Feelin' Kinda Sunday."
California Girl is a collection of old songs and newly recorded tracks by Nancy Sinatra, all built around one central concept – songs about California, from San Francisco to San Fernando, from classic tunes from the silver screen to sun-kissed rock & roll. It's a good idea for a record and even if the mix of old and new material is a little bit awkward, it's still a breezy, rather engaging record for longtime fans who have stuck by Nancy through thick and thin.
