Actually it was Suzie (actually Suzi, but spelled Suzie on this album) Jane Hokom that provided the voice to Dorothy, not Nancy Sinatra. The reason for that rumor was Suzi Jane Hokom, just like Nancy Sinatra, also sang with Lee Hazelwood. It was first Suzi who sang "Summer Wine" with Lee, then it was Nancy, and it was the version with Nancy that is more famous, so Suzi and Nancy are two separate people. It made sense that Suzi Jane Hokom would sing for Lee Hazelwood, as she was a secretary for LHI, Lee Hazelwood's enterprise (and record label), which stood for Lee Hazelwood, Inc.

Oh goodness...That was an amazing journey through the Moog... + Vocals, something that I've never heard before. The style is not Experimental for sure. It is something close to that, but on the other side, something completely different. It even reminds me an electronic musical on the Brodway. The lyrics are quite interesting, with the meaning.

The whole album in general drops you into the journey that is similar to Dr Timothy Leary's LSD trip, but drug-free!

Far, far ahead of his time, Garson is a true genius of electronic music, it is rumored that the part of Dorothy is played by Nancy Sinatra, this lp is hard to discribe, electronic, comedy, weird, and at times, frightening, and of course, a true mind blower!
