3.0 out of 5 stars Cheap packaging. February 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This compilation of Peggy Lee hits has the look and feel of a generic, quickly-assembled collection of readily available commercial material aimed at the mass market. Maybe it was advertized on one of those cable television infomercials, or manufactured for the impulse purchasers at Walmart and truck stops. In any case, genuine Peggy Lee fans and close followers of her career will want a remastered, intelligently edited collection that provides information about the original recordings, their labels, and dates of release.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great way to introduce yourself to Peggy Lee February 23, 2006
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
That a best hits album with only 11 songs could do such a good job capturing an alltime great performer is unlikely, but this one turns the trick.

This one includes two songs Lee wrote herself, including "It's a Good Day" - a good enough song to lead the album with - and "Manana", which is unPC by today's standards but considered amusing in the 1950s.

And it covers songs identifieid with her, including the haunting "Is That All There Is", "Fever" and "I'm a Woman."

Her South-of-the-Border-tinged rendition of "Heart", from the musical "Damn Yankees", is distinctive. "Alright, Okay, You Win" has a driving rhythm to it. "My Man", with its dark, old-timey wah-wahing trumpets, actually sells the idea that she loves a guy despite his beating and running around on her. "Why Don't You Do Right" calls a lazy, weak man to better behavior. "Hallelujah, I Love Him So" is a great upbeat song, as is "I Enjoy Being a Girl", which finishes the album. Lee's song choices here speak to a different era of relations between the sexes and that's part of their appeal; they draw vivid pictures of another time and place. She delivers each with her unique punch and verve.

Really, there isn't a bad song on this album and each one is distinctive; none seems to cover ground touched by another. Lee's voice is fresh and light and her working around the rhythm is confident and skillful. I sometimes buy this album as a gift for others. It's a great way to introduce yourself to Peggy Lee.

5.0 out of 5 stars Old-fashioned fun! May 11, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
Okay, so these songs go against every feminist sensibility I have. Okay, so "Manana" does not fit into today's P.C. world. Okay, so Peggy Lee is not the hippest chick around. Then again... This album is a blast! Forget the fact that this is the music your mom and dad used to listen to. The retro sound is hip and there's nothing like "Fever" to put you and your honey in the mood for some romance! And if you liked P.J. Harvey's version of "Is That All There Is," you'll love the original Peggy Lee sound of it (who knew people back then could be so morose?). And remember the ad for Enjoli perfume? ("I can bring home the bacon...") Well, Peggy Lee's "I'm a Woman" may not be so broad-minded, but it's still quite sultry. This album is a must for any well-rounded CD collection.

5.0 out of 5 stars Perfect Introduction to Miss Lee February 19, 2002
Format:Audio CD
This is a good introduction to Peggy Lee. 'It's a Great Day', 'Manana' and 'My Man' are stand-outs. I've listened to this disc hundreds of times ...the packaging is rather generic but the collection is a good start. When you are ready to hear more inclusive collections check out classic must haves like Black Coffee, Mink Jazz and Best of the Decca Years.

4.0 out of 5 stars First Introduction But It's Good January 19, 2000
Format:Audio CD
I've never listened to much Peggy Lee before, but in an attempt to get to know some of the traditional pop singers better, I selected this album. I am really quite impressed. The song "Is that all there is" is a great song, and so many more of the songs are really good. Her voice is excellent, and reminds every now and then of even Billie Holiday.

5.0 out of 5 stars SHE GIVES ME FEVER! March 1, 2007
Format:Audio CD
Peggy Lee possessed the ability to perform a wide variety of songs and ballads all the while capturing the hearts of her adoring audiences. She was a prolific recording artist who tuned out album after album over a career that lasted several decades. Peggy's voice on this CD is rich, warm and vibrant. Peggy Lee also imparts a sense of intimacy on great numbers like "Is That All There Is;" "Fever" and "I'm A Woman."

The CD starts off strong with the joyful ballad entitled "It's A Good Day." Peggy sings this with high octane energy and you truly believe that she is overjoyed to be alive and self-fulfilled in this world. The big band flavored musical arrangement is catchy, too. The track set then does a complete about face to go into the next number, "Is That All There Is." Now Peggy sings of a world of pain, disappointment and utter despair. She feels empty and unfulfilled; nothing will change her outlook, either. Peggy's remarkable versatility is showcased by the sharp contrasts between these first two songs.

Other great songs on this album include the sensual "Fever" and "I'm A Woman." "Alright, Okay, You Win" has a playful tone to it as Peggy sings of a woman who after some thought gives in to a man to become his sweetheart. The musical arrangement for the horns shines brightly on this number!

Mañana is the most difficult sell on this album. The beat is catchy and the melody is fantastic. The lyrics, however, are no longer considered cute or amusing. I'll tell you a secret, though: I know many hardworking Spanish people AND I still love this song anyway! Peggy maintained that she wrote this song with husband Dave Barbour after they vacationed south of the border.
