Song And Sheet Music Index For
The Peggy Lee Bio-Discography And Videography
by Iván Santiago-Mercado

Page generated on Mar 17, 2017


Explanatory Notes



The Peggy Lee Bio-Discography And Videography contains not one but two song indexes. The first of the
indexes provides song titles, songwriters, recording dates, and classification (e.g., studio master, radio
broadcast, concert performance). It is geared toward readers in search of basic and easily retrieved information.



Found in the present page is an alternative index. It essentially offers the same information as the first
index, but adds details of potential interest to viewers who may desire more detailed information. For
instance, this is the only index that includes the year in which each Lee interpretation made its commercial
debut (if at all) and the type of issue in which it did so (e.g., LP, 78, 45, CD). Another unique feature is the
inclusion of sheet music pictures. I have incorporated every known-to-me sheet that features Peggy Lee's
name on its front cover, be it as songwriter or as performing artist. (I would appreciate receiving, via email,
any images that I might be missing.) In April 2013 (the debut of this sheet music project), the total amount
of sheet covers on display was 125. Many more have been added since then. Notice that, in some cases,
there is more than one sheet music for the same song. In a few other cases (identified below), Peggy Lee is
not known to have performed the song featured in the sheet music, but there is some room for the assumption
that she might have done so in radio appearances that have been neither preserved nor documented.



Both indexes list every single song that Peggy Lee is known to have recorded: 1,060 masters. (I stress this
total out of a desire to set the record straight. Many of Lee's obituaries relied on outdated information to
incorrectly state that the total was somewhere between 650 and 700 masters.) All 1,060 masters were
originally intended for commercial release on the record labels to which Lee was contracted (Capitol,
Decca, MusicMasters, etc.). Partial exceptions are the 138 numbers which Lee recorded for three radio
transcription services (MacGregor, World, and Capitol itself), but which also ended up being commercially
issued in due time.

Along with the already entered 1,060 studio masters, this song index purports to list all the numbers that
Lee is known to have sung on television and radio broadcasts, in Broadway and Hollywood, in live concerts
and rehearsals. At the present time, the listing of such media and concert performances remains an ongoing
task, slated to be completed in 2017. By 2014, I had systematically incorporated the 50 performances
that Lee did for The Jimmy Durante Show (a radio program whose 1947-1948 season counted with Lee
as one of its regular members), her 138 renditions for The Bing Crosby Show (in which she
worked as a semi-regular for several seasons), the 37 numbers that Lee performed in two theatrical
productions (Side By Side By Sondheim, Peg), and the 10 music videos that she made
for the Snader Telescription company. More gradually, I have also been adding selected performances from
other radio shows -- in particular, radio performances which have been commercially issued. (The radio and
theatre performances mentioned in this paragraph have not been factored into the aforementioned
1,060 masters count. Ditto for alternate takes: they were not made part of the 1,060 count, although you will
indeed see below entries for those alternates which have been commercially released.)

Notice also that the bottom of this page contains a supplementary list of about 50 songs which Peggy Lee
sang live but which are not known to have been preserved in any shape or form.

Lastly, an apology. For easier reference, viewers of this page would probably appreciate seeing a number
next to each song listed (from #1 upwards). Regrettably, supplying such numbers is not a practical endeavor
at the present time, when there are many more songs to add. Once all songs have been entered, I do
intend to number each song. If you are more interested in consulting a bare list of the 1060 masters (plus 10
demos and rehearsals that have been commercially issued), consult one of the miscellaneous pages of this
discography.

(Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer)
Recorded for the radio transcription service World at an unknown date between 1952 and 1956. First commercial retail release: 1992 Avid CD Peggy Lee Sings For You.
{Explanatory note for the benefit of readers unacquainted with transcription programming.

With the passing of time, however, most of such performances have been made commercially available to the music-buying public.}

ACCIDENTS WILL HAPPEN
(Johnny Burke, Jimmy Van Heusen)
Peggy Lee is one of the various artists shown in this sheet music's front cover. The reason why Lee and the others are shown is that they appeared in the 1950 film Mr. Music, for whose soundtrack the song "Accidents Will Happen" was written. Lee was not only seen but also heard singing in the film, and she did record one of the songs from the movie. However, the song that she sang on film (as a duet with the movie's star, Bing Crosby) and recorded (solo) was "Life Is So Peculiar" -- not "Accidents Will Happen." In Mr. Music, "Accidents Will Happen" is heard as a duet sung by Crosby with Dorothy Kirsten.

(Kim Gannon, Walter Kent)
Performed on radio; not recorded for record companies or transcription services.

Versions:
a) A performance from an episode of The Peggy Lee Rexall Show, broadcast on June 17, 1951. Original release: 2015 Real Gone Music CD At Last: The Lost Radio Recordings.*

The present number was among the many ones included in the commercial issues, though three other numbers were still left out.

AND YOU'LL BE HOME

Peggy Lee is one of the various artists shown in this sheet music's front cover. The reason all the artists are shown is that they appeared in the 1950 film Mr. Music, for whose soundtrack the song "And You'll Be Home" was written. Lee was not only seen but also heard singing in the film, and she did record one of the songs from the movie. However, the song that she sang on film (as a duet with the movie's star, Bing Crosby) and recorded (solo) was "Life Is So Peculiar" -- not "Accidents Will Happen."

Actually a recurrent comedy sketch in The Jimmy Durante [Rexall] Show, Any State In The 48th consisted of both singing and special material. The conceit behind the sketch was that, since Jimmy was planning to run as vice president, his ongoing campaign made it necessary to survey the nation on a variety of topics.

CATALOGUE DAY
(Johnny Burke, Jimmy Van Heusen)
Not recorded for commercial retail labels, nor for radio transcription services. Performed instead on a radio broadcast, as shown below.

Versions:
a) A performance from an episode of Philco Radio Time Starring Bing Crosby that was broadcast on April 7, 1948. Only about one chorus is sung, in a trio with Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby. Though included in a medley of hits from the films of Fred Astaire, "Catalogue Day" was actually a tongue-in-cheek ditty that parodied Irving Berlin's penchant for writing songs about commemorative holidays. (The episode's script has Astaire and Crosby making the claim that they wrote this intentionally subpar number, but the credits at the end of the program name Burke and Van Heusen as the writers of its special material. Hence I have tentatively identified the songwriters as Burke and Van Heusen, not Astaire and Crosby.) Commercially released for the first time in the 1992 Parrot CD It's A Good Day.

A commercial spot heard in episodes of The Bing Crosby Show For Chesterfield that were broadcast on October 12, 1949, June 18, 1952, and June 25, 1952.

CUÁNTO LE GUSTA
(Ray Gilbert, Gabriel Ruiz Galindo)
Not recorded for commercial retail labels, nor for radio transcription services. Performed instead on the radio. Notice that the correct Spanish spelling of this song's title is the one given above. If Spanish is the language in which the title was intended to be, there is no other alternative spelling. (Many sources incorrectly list the song as "Cuanto la gusta" or "Cuanta la gusta.")

Versions:
a) A performance from an episode of Philco Radio Time, Starring Bing Crosby that was broadcast on December 29, 1948. Sung as a duet with Crosby. A frequently issued performance, its earliest commercial release might have taken place in 1976, as one of the tracks in the Murray Hill LP The Murray Hill Radio Theatre Presents Bing Crosby And Friends.



LA CUCARACHA
(Traditional; probably originating in Spain, and popularized primarily in Mexico)
Despite the fact that she graces the front cover of the above-seen sheet music, I have found no Peggy Lee versions of this song. Originally, after having noticed that the sheet identifies her as the star of Chesterfield's Supper Club, I entertained the possibility of a version sung during her tenure as hostess of that show. However, now that I have fully researched the show, this possibility must be rejected: there is no such version. (Since I have checked the song listings for all the Lee episodes of that show, the only possibility left in connection to the Supper Club is that my sources could have failed to list an episode. It is an unlikely possibility.) Of course, I do not have full records for all of the other radio series in which Lee performed. If she did sing "La Cucaracha," one of those series would rank among the most logical bets. But a stronger possibility has recently made itself apparent, through the photograph of Lee seen above. In the photo, sheet music for "La Cucaracha" is seen both in her hands and on the piano nearby. This publicity shot bears a June 6, 1951 and is believed to present Lee while she is preparing for TV's Top Tunes, the program that she co-hosted with Mel Torme during that summer. The presence of more than one piece of sheet music leads me to further speculate that, if the number was performed during that televised series, it could have served as a duet between Lee and Torme.

H

HAIR OF GOLD, EYES OF BLUE
(Sunny Skylar)
Peggy Lee is not known to have ever sung, much less recorded this 1948 ditty, whose lyrics are tailored for male vocalists. (It was indeed tackled by Gordon MacRae and by Frank Sinatra, among other singers of the masculine persuasion.) If Peggy Lee ever sang the number in public, the most plausible context would have been a now-obscure, unknown radio show. I am more inclined to dismiss the idea, however. Most likely, the Dutch company that published this piece of sheet music wanted to capitalize on Lee's international popularity, due to the 1948 success of her hit "Mañana." Hence her photo was chosen for the sheet's front cover.


HALF AS MUCH
(Curley Williams)
Not recorded for commercial retail labels, nor for radio transcription services. Performed instead on radio broadcasts.

Versions:
a) A performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast ca. August 26, 1952. First commercial retail release: 1993 Jazz Band CD Live, 1947 & 1952.*
b) A performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast September 18, 1952. Extant but commercially unissued.
c) A performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast ca. September 25, 1952. Extant but commercially unissued.
*{Note:  This song is also included in the 2015 Real Gone Music CD At Last:  The Lost Radio Recordings, which does not include recording dates. Hence there is a question mark as to which version of "Half As Much" is heard on that release. After listening and comparing the track on the 2015 CD with the track on the 1993 CD Jazz Band CD Live, 1947-1952, I have come to the conclusion that both discs contain the same August 26, 1952 version of "Half As Much."}

HIGH ON THE LIST
(Johnny Burke, Jimmy Van Heusen)
Peggy Lee is one of the various artists shown in this sheet music's front cover. The reason why Lee and the others are shown is that they appeared in the 1950 film Mr. Music, for whose soundtrack the song "High On The List" was written. Lee was not only seen but also heard singing in the film, and she did record one of the songs from the movie. However, the song that she sang on film (as a duet with the movie's star, Bing Crosby) and recorded (solo) was "Life Is So Peculiar" -- not "High On The List." In the film, this ballad is crooned by Crosby.

Peggy Lee and Danny Thomas are shown in this piece of sheet music because the song "Hush-a-Bye" was written for the soundtrack of the 1953 film remake of The Jazz Singer, in which they starred.

Fortunately, the label Redmond Nostalgia made the full episode commercially available on commercial CDr. So-called 'old-time radio' companies have offered the episode on MP3 format, too.
*{Note:  The CD Lost Radio Recordings does not provide track dates.  For that reason, this particular entry is tentative:  instead of this February 14, 1952 version with Norvo, the version included in the CD could be the one fro ca. May 29, 1952.)

One movie watcher reports that Lee's vocal is heard at the start of the film, whereas another listener recalls the melody but contends that no vocal was heard.

l) A video performance made for syndicated television on behalf of the Snader Telescription company. Filmed on September 22, 1950. First commercial releases: 1985 Storyville VHS Meet The Singers, Volume 2 (video) and 1963 Camay LP Peggy Lee's Greatest (audio).
m) A radio performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast on February 19, 1952. Extant but commercially unissued.
n) A radio performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast ca. May 20, 1952. Extant but commercially unissued.
o) A radio performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast ca. June 24, 1952. First commercial retail release: 1993 Jazz Band CD Live, 1947 & 1952. Running for just a minute and a half, and being the last track in the CD, this performance of "It's A Good Day" is mostly instrumental, the exceptions being a couple of vocal lines ("yes, it's a good day for singing a song and it's a good day for moving along"), and the announcer's ensuing statement that "this is the United States Armed Forces Radio Service." Presumably, this rendition of "It's A Good Day" served as the closer of all or most of the show's AFRS episodes. I have listed the rendition as coming from episode #49 because the tracks which precede it are from that episode. It stands to reason that the CD's producers could have lifted this closer from any AFRS episode, though.
p) A radio performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast ca. August 14, 1952. Extant but commercially unissued.

t) A TV performance from a Peggy Lee show that was telecast on May 25, 1966 and which was part of the syndicated TV series Something Special. First release on commercial audio: 1991 Deja Vu CD The Peggy Lee Story.
u) Performed for the theatrical show Peg, which ran from December 1 to December 17, 1983 (previews included) at the Lunt-Fontanne Theatre in New York City. Available in in at least two extant concert tapes.

*{Note:  This song is also included in the 2015 Real Gone Music CD At Last:  The Lost Radio Recordings, which does not include recording dates.

After listening and comparing the track on the 2015 CD with the track on the 1986 Sounds Rare LP If I Could Be With You, I have come to the conclusion that both issues contain the same June 5, 1952 version of "Just One More Chance."}

KAMEHAMEHA DAY
(Johnny Burke, Jimmy Van Heusen)
Not recorded for commercial retail labels, nor for radio transcription services. Performed instead on radio broadcasts, as shown below.

Versions:
a) A performance from an episode of Philco Radio Time Starring Bing Crosby that was broadcast on April 7, 1948. Only about one chorus is sung, in a trio with Fred Astaire and Bing Crosby. Though included in a medley of hits from the films of Fred Astaire, "Catalogue Day" was actually a Hawaiian-flavored tongue twister that parodied Irving Berlin's penchant for writing songs about commemorative holidays. (The episode's script has Astaire and Crosby making the claim that they wrote this intentionally subpar number, but the credits at the end of the program name Burke and Van Heusen as the writers of its special material. Hence I have tentatively identified the songwriters as Burke and Van Heusen, not Astaire and Crosby.) Commercially released for the first time in the 1992 Parrot CD It's A Good Day.

Peggy Lee is one of the various artists shown in this sheet music's front cover. The reason why Lee and the others are shown is that they starred of the 1955 film Pete Kelly's Blues.

To my knowledge, never released as a track on a bing Crosby or Peggy Lee audio. The label Redmond Nostalgia has made the full episode commercially available on commercial CDr. So-called 'old-time radio' companies have offered the episode on MP3 format, too.

The lyrics parody various numbers from Cole Porter (re-baptized in the song as Cole Portable). To my knowledge, never released as a track on a Bing Crosby or Peggy Lee audio. The label Redmond Nostalgia has made the full episode commercially available on commercial CDr. So-called 'old-time radio' companies have offered the episode on MP3 format, too.

THESE LUSH MOMENTS
(Johnny Burke, jimmy Van Heusen)

Versions:

As far as I have been able to ascertain, this version has yet to be released as a track on any Bing Crosby or Peggy Lee audio.

c) A radio performance from a third episode of Philco Radio Time, Starring Bing Crosby that was broadcast on November 10, 1948.

ZING A LITTLE ZONG
(Leo Robin, Harry Warren)
Not recorded for commercial retail labels, nor for radio transcription services. Performed instead on radio broadcasts, as shown below.

Versions:
a) A performance from an episode of The Bing Crosby Show For Chesterfield that was broadcast on June 25, 1952. Duet with Bing Crosby. As far as I have been able to ascertain, this version has yet to be released as a track on any Bing Crosby or Peggy Lee audio. Fortunately, the label Redmond Nostalgia made the full episode commercially available on commercial CDr. So-called 'old-time radio' companies have offered the episode on MP3 format, too.
b) A performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast ca. August 26, 1952. First commercial retail release: 1993 Jazz Band CD Live, 1947 & 1952.
c) A performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast on September 4, 1952. Original release:  2015 Real Gone Music CD At Last:  The Lost Radio Recordings.*

e) A performance from an episode of Club 88 Starring Peggy Lee that was broadcast by on October 9, 1952. Extant but commercially unissued.
*{Note:  The CD At Last: The Lost Radio Recordings does not provide track dates.  For that reason, this particular entry is tentative:  instead of version c, the version included in the CD could be d or e. Versions a has been discarded as a possibility because the CD is known to contain selections from Club 88, not from The Bing Crosby Show. Also out of the running is version b, from ca. August 26, 1952, and included in the CD Live, 1947-1952. Listening and comparison of the "Zing A Little Zong" track on Live, 1947-1952 and At Last:  The Lost Radio Recordings makes it clear that the two discs contain different versions of the song.)



Non-Extant Numbers Sung By Peggy Lee




The following 48 songs were sung by Peggy Lee live, but no versions of them are extant. At the present time (October 2010), this is the total number of non-extant titles of which I am aware.
