Crossreferences

I have only partial details about the televised version of this Peggy Lee show. I presume it to have been an edited version of the actual concert -- a version fitting within an one-hour-long slot. If so, only a portion of the full concert would have been televised. Thanks to a New York Times review published on August 31, 1984, I know that the aired performances included "Fever", "Is That All There Is?", "Why Don't You Do Right?", "Mañana", "The Folks Who Live On The Hill", "As Time Goes By", and "I'll Be Seeing You." For information about the full concert, including songs not released on videotape and thus unissued, consult this discography's concert page.
