Editorial Reviews


From swing era girl singer to sultry siren to grande dame of American song, Peggy Lee brought a sense of style, sophistication, subtlety and depth to the songs she performed and composed that coaxed listeners into a world of romance and rapture, heartache and enchantment.

The accumulated work of late, great artists has a way of falling into the hands of those who are more concerned with exploiting a legacy than advancing it. Peggy Lee made sure that didn't happen to the music she made over the course of six decades.

The acclaimed singer/songwriter/actress singled out someone she trusted inherently to watch all those great songs and recordings - her granddaughter.

Holly Foster-Wells spent long stretches with her grandmother from the time she was a child. Summers, spring breaks and Christmas vacations were spent in the company of an artist who was keenly attuned to how her music and image would be presented when she was gone.

"She always told me, 'You're going to take over my business some day.' She told me from an early age how she wanted things done. At the time I thought: Whatever," Foster-Wells recalls with a laugh.

When Starbucks began work on a Peggy Lee Opus Collection we connected with Ms. Foster-Wells. It turned out to be a rewarding alliance for both parties. She's very pleased with the package and song sequence. And we teamed with someone who provided thoughtful, informed feedback on a variety of fronts.

I saw Peggy Lee back in the early 1960's in Okinawa when she came through on a USO tour for the troops. I was just a kid, my parents took me to her show in the evening at the Kadena Officer's Club and I remember sitting there listening to her and enjoying her voice. Now I have this marvelous compilation of some of her best work. A coworker told me about this CD and I tried valiantly to get it at Starbucks, but alas, was not to be. So I turned to the Internet, and here it was in all it's fabulous glory. I would recommend this CD to anyone of discerning taste who cares to listen to a real professional sing. She was a class act and the same shows up in her music. She of course is the only person to do real justice to "Fever" and "Is That All There Is". A buyer wouldn't go wrong obtaining this CD, it's incredible! Highly recommended!!! AAA+++

This CD is probably -at least for me- the best introduction to Peggy's work for the brand new fan, since it contains both classics and some unusual tracks.

Even though I already own all of her albums and many compilations, I bought it because I realized it contains one "rarity" that I couldn't get elsewhere: the lovely "Oh, What a Beautiful Morning!", which means a lot if you are a completist.

Even if you already own most Peggy's CDs, I think you'll still want to get this compilation for one valid reason: apart from the aforementioned song, the sound quality is simply terrific, even on the older tracks! Another detail to take into account: the CD comes in a very beautiful, modern, deluxe digipack, containing a booklet with some comments on Peggy, as well as stunning photos of her.

To me Peggy Lee's voice is best at her lower range and slower tempo; her voice seems so much more rich, full and jazzy. It is likely because of how her collaboration with each supporting band or orchestra is set up.

When I started listening to this, I was initially disappointed because the first 2 tracks (once Around the Moon, You was Right, Baby) were sung by her in a rather high and thin voice. Then came the 3rd track, which was much better than the first 2.

I realized she had sung various songs at different vocal ranges and tempo, so the tracks vary considerably in vocal range and tempo. For example, I am listening to "I Love Being Here with You" right now and some of her intonation is rather whiny and seems slightly flat. As I progress through the disk, I am now listening to "Senza Fine", which is slower and her voice sounds great. Then the last one, "Is That All There is?" is only okay, little higher in intonation, some whininess to her voice; plus she talks between singing, which I don't like.

Thus, to me she is best with "torch" or big band songs that are lower in range and slower in tempo. And to me the best tracks are Fever, Big Spender, Black Coffee, Senza Fine.

So good that I'm writing the shortest review ever just so I can save the CD here in case I ever lose my hard copy. This has just wonderful, addicting songs on it, some of which seem to be of better quality than you can get elsewhere. Great find. Got it as a sort of gift after someone I know went to Starbucks. Now I panic if I can't find it.

All I can say is this is the best remaster of Peggy Lee. Sounds like it was recorded Yesterday!! This should be a part of all Peggy Lee Collectors.
