So Long Babe       Buy this song from iTunes
Nancy had recorded a dozen singles for Reprise, starting with "'Cuff Links And A Tie Clip" in 1961, before she finally cracked the U.S. charts in October 1965 with "So Long, Babe." "So Long, Babe" marked the beginning of her professional relationship with Oklahoma producer/writer Lee Hazlewood, the man who'd discovered and made a star of Duane Eddy. Hazlewood helped Nancy transform herself into the take-no-prisoners, tough-but-sexy girl who became an enduring icon and an indelible image of the '60s. Backed with "If He'd Love Me," "So Long Babe" only climbed as high as #86 on the Billboard Hot 100, but kicked open the door to success in the States at long last.
