5.0 out of 5 stars Peggy Lee -- Ultimate Mink Jazz November 12, 1999
Format:Audio CD
This CD captures Peggy Lee at her most expressive. Containing many of her own compositions, including one great ditty with the Mills Bros., she tears out your guts right from the start. But this is no ordinary singer, this is Miss Peggy Lee. She makes you think you know where she's going, then-- BANG--you are taking ANOTHER magic ride! That's the mark of genius, and, of course, the mark of Miss Peggy Lee. This is a MUST HAVE!

5.0 out of 5 stars The best of the Decca Years April 13, 2002
Format:Audio CD
Some people believe that the Decca years were Peggy Lee's finest. Whatever one believes, it cannot be denied that during her time with Decca she made a number of very fine recordings many of which are featured on this CD. From her original rendition of "Lover" through to the almost whispered "Mr. Wonderful" she displays her own inimitable talents. Peggy does not have a powerful voice in the conventional sense of the word and perhaps that is part of the secret of her success. Her voice has a quality with somehow compels her audience to listen and to concentrate on her singing. Once you do that, she has got you - like a femme fatale she tightens her grip and any attempt at escape is futile. This CD encompasses the complete spectre of human emotions from elation to blues as in her rendition of "Black Coffee". From the less serious side of her nature as portrayed in two of her tunes from "Lady and the Tramp" to a more contemplative mood in such classics as "Where Can I Go Without You" and I would thoroughly recommend it to those who enjoy nostalgia, or those like myself, born after these recordings were made, who just enjoy good music. The recent death of Peggy Lee in January 2002 leaves an empty space which will never be filled for she was, in the tradition of all truly great performers, unique. We can, however, take some solace in the fact she left behind a plethora of recordings covering half a century and keep her memory alive for many years to come.

5.0 out of 5 stars A great collection of Peggy's Decca years (1952-1957) November 9, 1999
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This superb collection will introduce you to some of Peggy's best work on the Decca label. When Capitol Records wouldn't record her amazing rendition of "Lover" she signed with Decca. This CD opens with her smash-hit "Lover" and includes her unequaled reading of "Black Coffee." It also has seven songs written by Peggy! "Johnny Guitar" and "Where Can I Go Without You" are Peggy Lee (lyrics) and Victor Young (music) classics! Then there's her wicked "Sans Souci," watch out! Truly a five star CD. For more info on Peggy please write to: The Peggy Lee Fan Club - 744 Collier Drive - San Leandro, CA 94577

5.0 out of 5 stars They don't make 'em like this anymore August 7, 1998
By A Customer
Format:Audio CD
This collection of Decca Hits by Peggy Lee is a must for any true fan of her music. Miss Lee was ahead of her time as she wrote quite a few of her hits (Johnny Guitar,Golden Earring,I Don't Know Enough About You,It's A Good Day and on and on)before it was common for women to do so. What an enormous talent! Makes you wish today's music sounded as good as this.
