SONG FOR TODAY: Nancy Sinatra And Lee Hazlewood - Some Velvet Morning

This was a song that I first became aware of when Primal Scream recorded a cover for their 2002 album 'Evil Heat', which also featured a guest vocal by Kate Moss. After hearing the original I realised that the Scream's rendition was somewhat inferior to Nancy Sinatra And Lee Hazelwood's version, which is also featured on the 1968 album 'Nancy And Lee'. 

"'Some Velvet Morning' is a psychedelic pop song written by Lee Hazlewood. It first appeared on Sinatra's album 'Movin' with Nancy', the soundtrack to her 1967 television special of the same name. The song has been covered many times since, almost always as a duet. Although "Some Velvet Morning" is one of the more famous duets Hazlewood and Sinatra recorded together, it is considered a departure from their usual fare, as it is decidedly less influenced by country and western music. The single peaked at number 26 on the Billboard Hot 100 in January 1968..."
