Peggy Lee's Bio-Discography:
Catalogue Of British Pressings
by Iván Santiago-Mercado

Page generated on Feb 16, 2017





Explanatory Notes

The purpose of this miscellaneous page is to list every Peggy Lee record released in the United Kingdom, irrespective of whether such a record was different from or identical to an original USA issue. As for the formats under consideration, the main ones will be LPs, 78/45-rpm singles, and CDs. MP3 files have not been factored in this discography.

For easier perusal, the page's listings are divided into the following parts:

I. Albums (From All Labels, Including Brunswick, EMI, and Philips)
II. Singles On Parlophone Records (American Counterparts: Columbia And Okeh)
III. Singles On Brunswick And MCA Records (American Counterparts: Decca And MCA)
IV. Singles On EMI Records And On British Decca Records (American Counterpart: Capitol)
V. Post-Capitol Singles Issued Or Distributed In the UK (From Atlantic, A&M, And Polydor Records)

Each part includes not only basic discographical data about British issues but also specific notes about certain items of potential interest. In some instances, the notes aim at pointing out peculiarities. In other instances, the notes attempt to clarify similarities and differences between a British item and its American counterpart(s).

For more commentary on this page's scope and purpose, consult the additional notes at the bottom of the page. [Photos seen above: Peggy Lee's image graced the front covers of at least five British record catalogue supplements. Four are on display. In the order in which they are pictured, these pamphlets date from January 1951, January 1957, January 1955, and November 1955. Pictures of many other British record guides can be found throughout the page. Since I have placed them only at the start or end of each section, they should facilitate the viewer's browsing of the page. Most of these so-called guides were record company publications which highlighted the companies' latest batch of releases and/or promote their back catalogues.]





I. ALBUMS (ON PHILIPS, BRUNSWICK, EMI-CAPITOL, AND OTHER BRITISH RECORD COMPANIES)


ALL AGLOW AGAIN!
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: T 1366 - All Aglow Again! {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart}
2. Emi CS/LP: 1565541; Pathé Marconi Pm 231; Eg 26 0605 4/1 - All Aglow Again! ("Nostalgia" Reissue Series) (July 1985) {Note: the one LP that I have consulted bears both the first and the second number. The third number is the one listed in music catalogues; I have not seen it.}
3. World Record Club Reel/LP: T/Tt 606 - All Aglow Again!


ALL THE CATS JOIN IN
An American item, rhe original issue of All The Cats Join In was released by CBS in 1988 on cassette, LP, and CD, as part of the "Columbia Jazz Masterpieces" Series, catalogue numbers Cs 44158, Cj 44158, and Ck 44158. British counterpart:
1. Cbs LP: 461100 - All The Cats Join In (1988)
{Note: This album contains just three PL vocals; the other tracks are instrumentals. I have found no evidence of cassette and CD versions made in the United Kingdom yet, but it is certainly possible that they exist.}


AROUND THE CHRISTMAS TREE
The original issue of this album was released by Decca/MCA in the United States. British counterparts:
1. Ace Of Hearts LP: Ah 125 - Around The Christmas Tree (ca. 1965)
{Note: This is a various-artists compilation, containing just one Peggy Lee vocal, "Ring Those Christmas Bells."}


BASIN STREET EAST PROUDLY PRESENTS PEGGY LEE
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: (S)T 1520 - Basin Street East Proudly Presents Peggy Lee {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart}


BEAUTY AND THE BEAT!
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: (S)T 1219 - Beauty And The Beat! {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart} (June 1960) (reissued at an unknown date, possibly between 1969 and 1971)
2. Emi LP: St 2C 06854576 - Beauty And The Beat! [dubious entry; the 2C prefix suggests possible origin in another country, after all]
3. Emi CS/LP: Tcems/Ems 1158 (also 26 1005 4/1) - Beauty And The Beat! ("Nostalgia" Reissue Series) (July 1986)




BENNY GOODMAN PLAYS / LET'S DANCE
Columbia EP: Seg 7556 (1955); to my knowledge, no American counterpart.
{Notes: This issue is not really a full Goodman-Lee album, since it includes only one Lee vocal. The tracks are "Let's Dance" (instrumental), "Perfidia" (vocal by Helen Forrest), "How Long Has This Been Going On?" (vocal by Peggy Lee), and "You Brought A New Kind Of Love To Me" (vocal by Jane Harvey).} It was also released in Australia as Sego 7566, with the title Let's Dance. Unfortunately, I have not been able to retrieve an image of the British edition's front cover, nor have I ever seen it. In its absence, the Australian cover is shown above, with the thought in mind that it might be identical to the British cover.


BENNY GOODMAN PRESENTS EDDIE SAUTER ARRANGEMENTS
United States original: Columbia EP #B 357 and Columbia LP #GL 523, released in 195.] British counterpart:
1. Philips LP: Bbl 7043 - Benny Goodman Presents Eddie Sauter Arrangements
{Note: This is not a full Goodman-Lee album. Only two of its numbers feature Peggy Lee: "That's The Way It Goes" and "Not A Care In The World."}


BENNY GOODMAN SEXTET WITH PEGGY LEE, THE
United States original: Columbia EP #B 2556, released in 1958. British counterpart:
1. Philips EP: Bbe 12172 - Peggy With Benny (1958)
{Notes: The American album and its British counterpart contain the same songs but different covers. The American original shows a photo of Benny Goodman in profile, in the act of playing the clarinet. The British counterpart shows Peggy Lee, in a head shot that is common to quite a few of the Columbia albums which contain her canary numbers. Both pictures can now be seen in this discographical page, section IV. The 1958 USA version is part of Columbia's "Hall Of Fame" EP series.}


BENNY GOODMAN, VOCALS BY PEGGY LEE
The United States original, also known as Benny Goodman, His Orchestra And Sextet; Vocals By Peggy Lee was originally released by Columbia as a 78-rpm album in 1948 and then re-released in 1949, in EP and 10" LP configurations. British counterpart:
1. Philips 10" LP: B 07626 H - Benny Goodman With Peggy Lee (unknown release year; possibly 1949 or 1950)
{Notes: The American album and its British counterpart contain the same songs but different covers. For pictures, see the first section of this page. For further details about this item's distribution in Europe, see miscellaneous page for foreign issues. Discographically oriented viewers should be alerted that, although Benny Goodman discographer D. Russell Connor does not list this British 10" LP issue under the master take of "On The Sunny Side Of The Street," the master can indeed be found in the issue.}


BEST OF PEGGY LEE, THE
United States original: Decca Dxb 164. British counterparts:
1. Brunswick LPs: Lat 8355 - The Best Of Peggy Lee, Volumes 1 & 2 (May 1961)
2. Coral LPs: Cp(S) 25 & 37 - The Best Of Peggy Lee, Volumes 1 & 2 (February 1970 & June 1970)
3. Coral LPs: Crl 1075 & 1084 - The Best Of Peggy Lee, Vol. 1 & 2 (1974)
4. Mca CS/LP: Mclc/Mcl 1632 - The Best Of Peggy Lee (1981)
{Note about #4: There is room to argue whether this is or isn't a counterpart of the American original. If deemed a counterpart, then it should be clarified that the album is an abbreviated and modified version. It contains 16 instead of 24 vocals. Moreover, 5 of those 16 vocals are not found in the American original.}


BEST OF PEGGY LEE, THE
See Hits Of Peggy Lee, The.

BING SINGS; RARE STYLE
No American counterpart.
1. Brunswick EP: 0e 9467 - Bing Sings, No. 2
2. Ace Of Hearts LP: Ah 164 - Bing Rare Style
{Note: This is a Bing Crosby Decca compilation that contains just one Peggy Lee vocal, the duet "The Possibility's There." The cover contains a b&w photo of Bing, against a blue background. This British album was the original release of the Crosby-Lee duet, and until the CD era, the only album in which it was available.}

Label under which the USA original was released: Decca. British counterparts:
1. Brunswick 10" LP: La 8629 - Black Coffee With Peggy Lee

CALIFORNIA SUITE
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:

CAPITOL PRESENTS ... PEGGY LEE
No American counterpart.
1. Capitol 10" LP: LC 6584 - Capitol Presents Peggy Lee (1953)
{Note: Capitol's first Peggy Lee LP in the United Kingdom culled songs from her 1947-1950 catalogue. When this album was released in British land, Lee had actually left Capitol already, moving to Decca. It so happened that, in the United Kingdom, Decca was Capitol's distributor at this point in time.}


CHRISTMAS CAROUSEL
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: S(T) 1423 - Christmas Carousel {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart}
{General note: All CDs listed below are reprints of the American CD version, and have the same track listing, including the bonus numbers. The front covers differ, though, and so does the title.}
2. Emi CD: 7243 8 31067 2 1 - The Christmas Album (1990?)
{Note: The picture on the cover of this CD shows a young Peggy Lee superimposed to a red background. She is wearing a white dress. The photo is actually one of the promotional shots for the film Lady And The Tramp; it was taken around 1955.}
3. Emi Music For Pleasure CS/CD: 7243 8 31067 4/2 1 - The Christmas Album (1994?)
{Note: The picture on the cover of this CD shows Peggy's face, near Christmas balls. This photo was originally used for the Capitol LP Happy Holiday.}
4. Emigold/Music For Pleasure CD: Cdmfp 6149 - The Christmas Album (1996)
{Note: Details about this CD, which I have not seen, are scant. There is a small possibility that this is not a Peggy Lee album but a various-artists compilation.}
5. EMI CD: 7243 4 97537 2 3 - The Christmas Album (1998)
{Note: The picture on the cover of this CD shows Peggy Lee with her head lying on a red pillow, lustrous hair prominently showing. This photo was originally used for the Capitol LP Rendezvous With Peggy Lee. Added to the CD's picture is a photo of a Christmas tree. This particular compact disc carries both 1990 and 1998 dates; the 1990 date presumably refers to its earlier incarnation, described in #2 above.}
{Additional note: It is a very possible that EMI released yet another version of this CD in 1991 or thereabouts. I have not found corroborating details about it yet.}


CLARINET ALA KING
The original United States issue of Clarinet Ala King was released by CBS on cassette, LP, and CD, as part of the "Columbia Jazz Masterpieces" Series, catalogue numbers Cs 40834, Cj 40834, and Ck 40834. British counterpart:
1. Cbs LP: 460829 - Clarinet Ala King (1987)
{Note: This album contains just one PL vocal; the other tracks are instrumentals. I have found no evidence of cassette and CD versions made in the United Kingdom yet, but it is certainly possible that they exist.}


CLOSE ENOUGH FOR LOVE
Company that released the USA original: DRG. British counterparts:
1. Tring International CD: Jhd 067 - Close Enough For Love ("Freestyle" Series) (1991 )
2. Diffusion CD: Ldj 274953 - Close Enough For Love ("Radio Nights" Series) (1991; possibly reprinted 1999)
3. Pickwick/Elap/Success CD: 16130cd - Close Enough For Love (1992 )
{Note: Although I have found these issues listed as British releases, it is possible that the listings are erroneous, and that some of them were first issued somewhere else in Europe.}


DREAM STREET
Label under which the USA original was released: Decca. British counterparts:
1. Brunswick LP: Lat 8171 - Dream Street (March 1957)
2. Ace Of Hearts LP: Ah 44 - Dream Street (ca. 1963)
3. Jasmine LP: Jasm 1032 - Dream Street (1983? 1988?)
4. Mca International CD: Mcld 19382 - Miss Wonderful / Dream Street (1998)
{Note about the Brunswick LP: It boasts a collector's cover. The cover is a variation on the drawing that graces the original Decca album. Due to the fact that these American and British covers were inspired by different publicity photos, the are vastly different in detail. They can be viewed in section V of this page.
{Note about the Ace Of Heart and Jasmine reissues: The Jasmine LP reproduces the Brunswick cover, whereas the Ace Of Hearts LP sticks with the American original. See also the Dream Street entry in the Foreign Issues page.}
{Second note about the Brunswick and Ace Of Heart LPs: "I've Grown Accustomed To His Face," one of the songs in the original USA album, is missing from those British counterparts. It has been substituted with "I Don't Know Enough About You."}
{Second note about the Jasmine LP and the Mca CD: They include "I've Grown Accustomed To His Face." The CD includes "I Don't Know Enough About You," though only because the track is part of the twofer's other album.}




FABULOUS PEGGY LEE, THE
No American counterpart.
1. World Record Club Reel/LP: Ttp/Tp 352 - The Fabulous Miss Lee (1963)
{Note: This album is basically a 12" reissue of the aforementioned 10" LP Capitol Presents ... Peggy Lee. It misses just one of the tracks from the 10" LP, and adds five more.}


FABULOUS PEGGY LEE, THE
Label under which the USA original was released: Decca. British counterparts:
1. Ace Of Hearts LP: Ah 107 - The Fabulous Peggy Lee (1966)


FEMININE TOUCH, THE
Label under which the USA original was released: Decca. British counterparts:
1. Brunswick LP: Lat 8205 - The Feminine Touch; Music For The Boyfriend
{Note: This is a compilation album that contains two Peggy Lee vocals, "How Bitter, My Sweet" and "Ooh, That Kiss."}




FEVER
No American counterpart.
1. Emi CD single: CD Peg 1 / 7243 8 80202 2 0 - Fever; The Original Hit Single By Peggy Lee
{Note: A CD Single released by EMI in conjunction with Impulse fragrance. The companies' use of "Fever" in a TV commercial proved popular enough to elicit this 4-track release from EMI's back catalogue. A Peggy Lee 45-rpm single, consisting of two of those four tracks, was simultaneously issued as well. The same photo is found on the covers of the 45-rpm single and the CD single: a young, frizzy-haired redhead in a white shirt is receiving a pink rose from a man. This photo is a shot taken from the commercial. On a more curious matter, the catalogue number, Peg 1, would seem to be honoring Lee.}


GUITARS ALA LEE
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterpart:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: (S)T 2469 - Guitars Ala Lee {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart}




HIT PARADE
No American counterpart.
1. Brunswick EP: 0e 9340 - Hit Parade
{Note: This is a various artists Decca compilation that contains just one Peggy Lee vocal, "Mr. Wonderful." The other 3 songs are by Victor Young, Jeri Southern, and Rex Allen. The cover shows photos of all 4 acts, separately. Thia EP appears to have been pressed in Germany as well, with the same catalogue number as the British edition. I suspect that there is an American original version of this compilation, but if so, I have yet to find any traces of it.}


HITS OF PEGGY LEE, THE
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Emi 8-T/CS/LP: 8x/Tc/(S)T 21141 - The Best Of Peggy Lee (1968)
2. Music For Pleasure LP: Mfp 5605 - The Best Of Peggy Lee (April 1983)
{Note: Although this compilation is certainly the British version of the American Capitol LP Hits Of Peggy Lee, it differs in various significant aspects, such as its 5 additional tracks and its entirely different photo on the album's front jacket.}


I LIKE MEN!
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: T 1131 - I Like Men! {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart}
2. Emi CS/LP: Tcems/Ems 1287 - I Like Men! ("Nostalgia" Reissue Series) (March 1988)
3. World Record Club LP: T 518 - I Like Men!


I'M A WOMAN
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: (S)T 1857 - I'm A Woman {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart}
2. Phillips EP: Bbe 12172 - I'm A Woman {Note: This EP is the same one as American Capitol EP #Eap 4 1857. It is curious to see indication that Philips was the releasing company in the United Kingdom. I suspect that there is a mistake at play in the information at my reach; perhaps this EP was released by Philips not in the United Kingdom but rather somewhere else in Europe.}


IF YOU GO
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: S(T) 1630 - If You Go {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart}

4. Walt Disney CD: Wdr 0153812 Dny - Favourite Songs From Lady And The Tramp
{Note about the Buena Vista issue: Its cover features a drawing of the titular characters, with hearts around them. There is also a small oval photo of Peggy Lee taken in 1973. Long platinum hair and dark funerary dress, microphone next to her mouth. (It's a publicity photo from the televised musicians' tribute to Louis Armstrong which took place after his funeral.) }


LATIN ALA LEE!
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi CS/LP: Tat/S(T) 1290 - Latin Ala Lee! (June 1960)

{Note: Mercury Records actually released an abbreviated version of this album in both the United States and Canada, but that version seems to have been recalled before most fans of Lee became aware of its existence. Mercury's company files even lists the album as unreleased, although it did make a very fast trip to some record stores.}

PEGGY LEE SINGS WITH BENNY GOODMAN
United States original: Harmony LP #Hl 7005, released in 1956. Harmony was, at the time, a division of Columbia. British counterparts:
1. Hallmark LP: Hm 503 - We'll Meet Again; Peggy Lee With The Benny Goodman Orchestra (1967)
{Notes: This Hallmark LP uses the same cover photo as the original album on Harmony, but there is a difference in the background of each photo. The original has a creamy background and, on the upper part of the picture, a blue stripe. The Hallmark album has a blindingly white background, and no stripes. Said to also be available in a stereo version, Shm 503, a claim that I have not been able to corroborate. If accurate, the so-called stereo is actually electronically re-channelled or fake stereo.}

Blue background, and the shadow of a cornetist playing. Of the later reissues, the Jasmine album uses the Brunswick cover, whereas the Ace Of Hearts album sticks with the American cover.}




PRESENTING PEGGY LEE
No American counterpart.
1. Brunswick EP: 0e 9282 - Presenting Peggy Lee (1957)
{Note: The cover of this EP uses the same photo of Lee as the Brunswick edition of the album Pete Kelly's Blues. The EP's cover adds a red stripe not found in the artwork of the Pete Kelly's Blues album. This British issue has a Danish counterpart that bears the same title and artwork but uses different tracks. Tracks in the Danish issue: "River River," "Sans Souci," "Lover," "Just One Of Those Things." For the tracks in the Danish version, consult miscellaneous page for Foreign Issues.

SONGS FOR MY MAN
No American counterpart.
1. Capitol CS/LP: 1006 - Songs for My Man (April 1977)
{Note: This album has no USA counterpart but it does have equivalents in Australia and the Netherlands; see page for Foreign Issues. I actually do not know for certain that the British version was the debut release. However, from the fact that British writer Peter Clayton wrote the liner notes, I am inclined to believe that this anthology was put together in the United Kingdom, and issued there first.}


SONGS IN AN INTIMATE STYLE
AKA PEGGY LEE
Label under which the USA original was released: Decca. British counterparts:
1. Brunswick 10" LP: La 8717 - Songs In An Intimate Style (1955)

Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol 10" LP: Lc 6540 - South Pacific Selection
2. Encore LP: Enc 136 South Pacific Selection
{Notes: This is a various-artists anthology in which Peggy Lee sings two numbers, "Bali Ha'i" and "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair." Encore seems to have been an EMI sub-label; details are sketchy.}


THEN WAS THEN AND NOW IS NOW!
Label under which the USA original was released: Capitol. British counterparts:
1. Capitol/Emi LP: (S)T 2388 - Then Was Then And Now Is Now! {Note: same catalogue number & title as American counterpart} {Note #2: Adds the words "a variety of love songs sung to perfection" to the front cover}

1. Capitol 8T/CS/LP: E St 8x/Tc/St 23168 (also 062.81537) - The Very Best Of Peggy Lee (1973)
{Note: Interestingly, this worthwhile British compilation was released one year after Lee had parted ways with Capitol in the United States. It culls tracks from two segments of Lee's career at Capitol: 1958-1959 and 1967-1972.)


WHERE DID THEY GO?
{Note: There is a World Record Club reissue of this original Capitol album. However, it seems to have been issued by the Australian branch of the club, not by the British one.}

1. Brunswick LP: Lat 8044 - Selections From White Christmas (1954)

Different photos of each artists were used in for the British edition. Furthermore, the front cover of the American original also includes a photo of Irving Berlin, while the Brunswick album omits it altogether. To see photo of the Britiish LP and CD editions, click on this link.}
{General note: The release dates of some of the listed CDs should be deemed tentative; further corroboration is needed.}

British counterparts:
1. Glendale LP: Gl 6023 - You Can Depend On Me (December 1987)
{Note: No studio recordings. Consists of radio transcriptions. In the United States, this album was released in 1981.}


Original American Albums Not Issued In The United Kingdom. In the UK, EMI did not release the following original Capitol albums: Sugar 'n' Spice, Somethin' Groovy!, Two Shows Nightly, A Natural Woman, Bridge Over Troubled Water, and Where Did They Go?. Also skipped were the anthologies Extra Special! and Happy Holiday. MCA did not release the Decca album Lover. All other Decca LPs were issued in the United Kingdom by MCA, its branches, and/or its licensees. As for the albums that Peggy Lee recorded for various labels in her later years, after parting from Capitol in 1972, all of them were released in the United Kingdom, with the possible exceptions of the final two, Love Held Lightly and Moments Like This. (These are possible rather that definite exceptions because information about their distribution abroad is vague. I am actually inclined to believe that both saw issue in the UK.)






II. PARLOPHONE SINGLES (BRITISH COUNTERPARTS OF SINGLES ON AMERICAN COLUMBIA AND OKEH)


Parlophone Records
In the United Kingdom, Parlophone was the label which released the singles that Benny Goodman recorded for American Columbia in the early 1940s. Listed here are only those which feature vocal choruses by Peggy Lee, of course. So far, I have come across mention of just three such singles. I presume that there were more; any additions from readers of this discography would be appreciated. All six songs listed were also released on singles in America.


1
PARLOPHONE 78 #R 2845
Blues In The Night
Where Or When

2
PARLOPHONE 78 #R 2858 {2857?}
On The Sunny Side Of The Street
The Wang Wang Blues [Benny Goodman instrumental; does not include PL]
Released December 1942.
{Note: The release date, obtained from one of my secondary sources, is suspect. Since the American original was released in December 1942, I'm inclined to think that the release of any foreign version would have taken place, at the earliest, a month later. See also entry #3.}




3
PARLOPHONE 78 #R 2864
Why Don't You Do Right?
Six Flats Unfurnished [Benny Goodman instrumental; does not include PL]
Released March 1943.
{Note #1: This single identifies itself as belonging to The 1943 Super Rhythm-Style Series, No. 68.}
{Note #2: Notice that, though the release dates for singles #2858 and #2864 are months apart, those two catalogue numbers are fairly close to one another. This is another reason why I am inclined to think that single #3858 was released in 1943, not 1942.}






III. BRUNSWICK AND MCA SINGLES (BRITISH COUNTERPARTS OF SINGLES ON AMERICAN DECCA AND MCA)


Brunswick Records
In British land, Brunswick was the label in charge of releasing the singles that Peggy Lee recorded for American Decca in the 1950s. I believe that the list below is complete, or otherwise nearly complete. The total number of singles listed as released in the United Kingdom is 35 (or 33, if #8 and #9 are disqualified for the reasons given below). As for the total number of singles released in the United States, it is 37. For further statistical details, see notes that follow the last Brunswick/MCA single (#35).

7
BRUNSWICK 78 #05118
Who's Gonna Pay The Check
(Sorry, Baby) You Let My Love Get Cold

8
BRUNSWICK 78 #05033
Moon Flowers
To See You Is To Love You [Bing Crosby vocal; does not include PL]
{Note: In the United States, "Moon Flowers" was released not as a single but on a 78-rpm album. I have been able to inspect the non-Lee side of this single and have found no indication of a connection to an album. I have thus chosen to list it as a legitimate single. There is still some room for doubt, however. A flag is raised by the fact that the next Brunswick single contains more album songs and is numerically very close to this one.)


9
BRUNSWICK 78 #05035
Merry-go-runaround
The Road To Bali [Bing Crosby - Bob Hope vocal duet; no PL]
{Note: In the United States, "Merry-go-runaround" was released not on a single but on a 78-rpm album. See preceding item's note as well.}

{Note #2: This British single was also pressed in Ireland, on a 78-rpm disc with the same catalogue number. An identical British-Irish pattern could very well apply to other singles listed herein, but, as the present time, this is the only case of which I am aware.}

33
BRUNSWICK 78 & 45 #05714
I Don't Know Enough About You
Where Flamingos Fly
{Note: In the USA, these two songs were released on different singles. "I Don't Know Enough About You" was paired with "You Oughta Be Mine." "Where Flamingos Fly" was paired with "The Gypsy With Fire In His Shoes."}

{Note: In the United States, "Black Coffee" was originally released on LP (1953) and, belatedly, on a 45-rpm single (1964). "I Don't Want To Play In Your Yard" was never released as a single in America; it was issued instead on LP (1953) and, eventually, on CD.}


Songs Released On British Singles Only. The following Decca vocals were released on 45-rpm and/or 78-rpm singles in the United Kingdom, yet never came out on a single the United States: "I Don't Want To Play In Your Yard," "I Didn't Know What Time It Was," "Mister Magoo Does The Cha Cha Cha," and "Three Cheers For Mister Magoo." For the British singles that contain these four songs, see entries #16, #28, and #35 above. (Conversely, about ten Decca songs released on singles in America did not receive the same treatment overseas.)

Also, "What Is A Baby?" might have been issued on a single in the United States; it was not issued in such a manner in the United Kingdom.






IV. EMI SINGLES (BRITISH COUNTERPARTS OF SINGLES ON AMERICAN CAPITOL)


British Decca And British EMI
In the United Kingdom, Capitol's catalogue was originally distributed by Decca Records. This situation changed in the mid-50s, when the British company EMI bought American Capitol, hence taking care of the catalogue's distribution from then onwards. The total of Capitol singles by Peggy Lee that were released in the UK is 55. That amount is considerably smaller than the USA total (99 or, if we decide not to count a dozen of reissues and a handful of special items such as charity singles and various-artists ensemble numbers, about 83). For one or two additional statistical details, see notes that follow the last single (#55).




1
CAPITOL 78 #Cl 13001
All Dressed Up With A Broken Heart
Mañana
Released December 1948.
{Note #1: This Peggy Lee single holds the distinction of having been the debut of Capitol's CL series, which was dedicated to ten-inch 78-rpm discs pressed in the United Kingdom. (There was also a British twelve-inch CL series, which used 11000 instead of 13000 numbers. Stan Kenton And His Orchestra premiered that 12" series.)}
{Note #2: The American equivalent of Capitol #CL 13001 was Capitol #15022. It contains the same songs as #CL 13001, but its issue date was much earlier: January instead of December 1948.}

{Note: There is conflicting information about this single. The number on the label of the 78-rpm disc is definitely #CL 14903; I have seen a copy. However, a couple of otherwise reliable listings identify it instead as #CL 14902. Perhaps that second number corresponds to the 45-rpm disc only?}

{Note #2: In the United Kingdom, EMI apparently kept making pressings of this single over the decades. It is listed as available in 1970s Schwann catalogue guides. It might have been kept in print on account of its impact on The Beatles, and the wider recognition that the group's recording brought to the song.}

EMI 45: #Peg 1 (1992)
I'm A Woman
Fever
{Note: This single was released by EMI in conjunction with Impulse fragrance. Impulse's use of "Fever" in a British TV commercial renewed interest and demand for the song, thereby compelling EMI to re-release some of Lee's back catalogue numbers on various configurations. A Peggy Lee CD single, consisting of 4 songs, was simultaneously issued with this single. Both the 45-rpm single and the CD single bear the exact same cover photo, in which a young, frizzy-haired redhead in a white shirt is receiving a pink rose from a man. This photo is presumably a shot taken from the commercial. The catalogue number of these singles is a curious detail; it would seem to be honoring Lee. A full Lee CD, produced by Alan Dell and entitled Fever; The Best Of Peggy Lee, was also issued.}

V. ATLANTIC, A&M, AND POLYDOR SINGLES (POST-CAPITOL SINGLES ISSUED OR DISTRIBUTED IN THE UNITED KINGDOM)


British Releasing Companies: A&M, Atlantic, Polydor.
After Peggy Lee ended her contract with Capitol in 1972, she went on to record for Atlantic (1974), A&M (1975), and Polydor (1977). All three labels issued a single or two by Lee. In the special case of Polydor Records, Lee's sessions were held in London. The resulting single (and albums) were originally released there. Thereafter, Lee kept on recording for other labels, but by then vinyl singles had become a thing of the past, and record companies were no longer issuing them.

Final Notes

1. Distribution And Duplication
Some of the British issues listed in this page are identical or nearly identical to their American counterparts. Others differ substantially from the American counterparts or just are original British releases, with no counterpart whatsoever. British issues identical to their American originals have been circumscribed to the present page. In other words, please note that such issues are not listed in the main body of this discography, known as the sessionography. On the other hand, British issues which are either fully original or partially different from their American counterparts have been listed both herein and in the sessionography.

2. Motivations Behind The Creation Of A Miscellaneous British Discography
Of the various reasons that compelled me to put together a British discography, I would like to point out thouse which I deem most relevant.

The United Kingdom has been particularly receptive to Peggy Lee's body of work. British EMI and British MCA have been responsible for numerous Peggy Lee anthologies and album reissues, some of them released during periods in which her catalogue was being largely ignored in the United States. The BBC has also graced Lee's memory with a fair share of programs in her honor. What's more, Lee herself held recording sessions in the Land of Hope and Glory. Therefore, "British-Lee" endeavors strike me as amply deserving of special attention.

Incidental factors also contributed to the creation of this supplementary page. In the course of my research and preparation of the main sections of the Peggy Lee discography, I came across ample data about her releases in the United Kingdom. I routinely saved such data, even though at the time I had no plans to make use of it. As my discographical research progressed and British-related minutia concurrently began to pile up, I realized than letting the information sit idly served little purpose. Hence I have ended up pouring over the saved data and organizing it for the general consumption of fellow fans. I hope that the results will be to the satisfaction of her devoted British fans.

[images below: Posters advertising the latests Capitol and Brunswick singles released in British land. The first dates from February 1950, and lists the Peggy Lee-Mel Torme duet single "The Old Master Painter / Bless You (For The Good That Is In You)." The second, dated November 1951, lists the song "Don't Fan The Flame," from the Lee-Torme sequel to the aforementioned single. This poster also lists Lee's hit solo rendition of "I Get Ideas" and her two vocals from Capitol's series of singles covering songs from the smash musical South Pacific, "Bali Ha'i" and "I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta my Hair." The last poster, showing releases out on October 1955, is seen twice here. It lists four of the songs from the movie Pete Kelly's Blues that Lee recorded for Decca.]
