Archival label Light in the Attic (LITA) has announced the first official reissue of Nancy & Lee Again, the 1972 sophomore album by Nancy Sinatra and Lee Hazlewood. Set for release on March 24th, 2023 and available to pre-order in a variety of formats, including vinyl, CD, 8-track, and digital, this edition is remastered by Grammy-nominated engineer John Baldwin.
The reissue also includes exclusive content, such as a new interview with Nancy Sinatra, never-before-seen photos, and two bonus tracks: the Danny Kortchmar-penned “Machine Gun Kelly” (which remained unissued for decades after its 1972 recording) and the previously unreleased “Think I’m Coming Down,” captured during the album’s 1971 sessions and available now to stream/download.
Pressed at Record Technology, Inc. (RTI), the vinyl edition of Nancy & Lee Again is presented in an expanded gatefold jacket and accompanied by a 20-page booklet, featuring an array of photos from the singer, actress, and activist’s personal collection, as well as in-depth Q&A with Nancy Sinatra, conducted by the reissue’s Grammy-nominated co-producer Hunter Lea.
The booklet is also offered with the CD edition and all formats have been designed by Darryl Norsen of D. Norsen Design. In addition to the classic black vinyl pressing, a selection of colorful variants can be found exclusively at NancySinatra.com, LightInTheAttic.net, independent record stores, and select online retailers.
Additionally, a limited-edition merchandise capsule (including a custom chain stitched denim jacket, embroidered pillow, canvas tote, and apparel collaboration with Los Angeles-based Midnight Rider) accompany the release at Nancy’s Bootique on NancySinatra.com.
