9/10 Andrew Customer review, 11th August 2014
Two versions of the song made famous by Nancy Sinatra, and whilst I am a bit of a fan of hers, I have to say both of these are superior. This is the sort of reissue 7" that Jazzman do so well. On the A side Ella Fitzgerald slays the track in her inimitable huge voiced style, ably supported by a rollicking big band. This is the sort of version that will rock the floor at spots like the Hi Fi club in Leeds for years to come.
Muguette on the flip gives the song a different vibe, the lyrics translated to French and the music given that gallic air of cool, slightly 'Don't give a toss, but hey still we are still good, non?' That's a good thing.
Great stuff, and a nice 7" to impress your friends with when playing interestingly cover version top trumps.
