"Some Cats Know" is the title track of another Connie Evingson album, and again here she offers up the tune in a slow and sizzling (and sexy), way. "I'm Gonna Go Fishin'" is done in a more sprightly, but no less smoky way. "I Don't Know Enough About You" is again, typical of Connie's style.
"He's A Tramp" and "Fever" are of course Peggy Lee standards. She owned these songs in a way few artists can ever hope to own a song as their signature tune. Dino had "Return to Me", for example, and it just sounds wrong coming from someone else. Connie does quite well on both tunes here, again, putting her own spin on the Lee classics while not straying too far from the sound Lee fans remember.
The only poor choice here would have to be "Is That All There Is?" Peggy Lee could make it work perfectly. I've never really cared for the song anyway, but Connie is too young, and perhaps even too innocent, to pull off the world-weary sound required for this song.
Other than that, the CD is rich with Connie's wonderful vocals, and the accompaniment is great. Don't listen to the naysayers. Try this one out.

What can I say, Connie E's tribute to legendary Peggy Lee was a pure listening pleasure. I love her voice, style of singing, and choice of songs to cover.Published on April 21, 2013 by Michael P Harris
Peggy Lee was one of my favorites and Connie is almost as good. Also a pretty blonde (as Peggy was). My daughter and wife (both singers) love these songs.Published on January 2, 2011 by James E. Elsaas
Miss Evingson's lithe, restrainted, clear voice is a nice listen, but she falters in this tribute to Peggy Lee , who was a perfectionist when it came to just about everything on... Read morePublished on August 15, 2000
