Note About The Images Seen Above

A non-American item dating from 1955, the above-shown 45-rpm single contains two songs that Peggy Lee had recorded for Decca Records in 1953. Back then, Decca released both songs on an American album called Songs In An Intimate Style. Decca also issued one of the songs ("Apples, Peaches, And Cherries") on an 45-rpm/78-rpm single, but restricted the other one ("How Strange") to the album.

In New Zealand and Australia, Decca's catalogue was released through Festival Records. The Festival single under scrutiny is a promotional single. Visible on both sides of the disc, the prefix "DJ" probably stands for the term "disc jockey," and thus pinpoints to the realm of radio as the original recipient of the item.

Promotional single DJ 1 should not be studied in isolation. This page's next entry shows what might have been the commercial version of the promo: it dates from the same year and comes from the same label. But, if DJ 1 was meant to be the promo version of SP 45 750, then Festival's original plans for commercial release must have undergone a belated modification: "How Strange" was left out and Lee's Decca recording of "Baubles, Bangles, And Beads" was featured instead. A conceivable reason for the substitution would have been the fact that "Baubles" had been a hit for Lee in the United States -- and was also incorporated to the aforementioned Decca album Songs In An Intimate Style. Alternatively, these two singles might have always been intended to feature the songs that they do; Festival could have deemed it worthwhile to add a third number ("How Strange") to the roster of songs that would promote the company's own 1955 reissue of the album Songs In An Intimate Style.



Notes About This Index's Contents

The last of three indexes dedicated to listing Peggy Lee's singles, this page covers items that came out only on 45-rpm format in their country of origin. All singles are listed chronologically by year of release. In cases where the release date remains unknown to me, the single in question has been relegated to the bottom of the page.

Throughout, you will notice the inclusion of relevant pictorial material, such as images of 45-rpm labels and ads promoting the singles. My intention is to keep adding more of such pertinent images as I find them. Also found throughout this index are notes about certain singles. Replicas of many of those notes can be found, sometimes in expanded versions, in this discography's sessionography. (Should you be interested in consulting the sessionography, place your cursor on the words "Studio Sessions" in the blue bar above.)

If you are searching for details about a particular USA 45-rpm single by Peggy Lee, and if you do not find any information about it herein, consult the second index as well. (The second index concentrates on singles which came out on both 78-rpm and 45-rpm configurations, rather than just on 45 rpm.) Of course, you can contact me directly, too, through my email address. Furthermore, bear in mind that some so-called 45-rpm singles are instead pieces of EPs which, with the passing of time, became detached from their cardboard cover. As a result, such EP pieces have ended up being unwittingly listed as singles even in specialized magazines and at record auctions. In the present index, I have tried to include only authentic 45-rpm singles, as opposed to EP units.

In this page, non-American 45-rpm singles have been included only when they do not have a USA counterpart. Separate pages for such foreign counterparts actually exist in this discography: one of them specifically for British items, the other for any additional foreign items. [By a foreign "counterpart," I mean a 45-rpm single that (a) was manufactured and released outside of the United States but (b) contains the exact same two master performances as an US single.]

Finally, I should point out that I have made a few exceptions to my main policy for this page. As already stated, the page is circumscribed to singles that were released only on 45 rpm, not on 78 rpm; however, you will spot below a tiny quantity of singles that did come out on both configurations. (They are identified as such on the notes under them.) An explanation for these exceptions is in order. The main sources from which I originally built my discographical work consisted of official paperwork (e.g., artist files) from the Capitol label and, in the case of other record companies, the label discographies published by Michel Ruppli. I have belatedly found out that the official documentation omits the existence of 78-rpm versions for a few singles that were issued in or around 1957 and 1958. By that time, the 78-rpm configuration might have not been deemed relevant enough to warrant inclusion in the artist files of the record company. The shellac pressings might have consisted of quantities small enough to fall within the realm of custom-made requests. (I should stress that the points made in this paragraph pertain only to singles pressed in the United States. In other countries, such as Canada, 78-rpm pressings of Capitol/EMI singles were regularly made during the late 1950s and even in the early 1960s.) There in one more exception to note: also belatedly incorporated to this page were CD singles, of which there are no more than a handful.

NOTES:



According to David Kent’s Australian Chart Book (1940– 1969), the above-seen 45-rpm single (bearing matrix numbers 885 and 886) holds the distinction of having reached the top ten in Australia's music chart. In the United States, these two songs were issued two years earlier and on different 45-rpm (and 78-rpm) singles. To be more specific, Decca issued "Baubles, Baubles And Beads" on a 1953 single (#28890) whose flip side is "Love You So". As for "Apples, Peaches And Cherries," it was released on American Decca single #28889, with "The Night Holds No Fear For The Lover" on the flip side. (Neither of those USA singles is listed in the present page. Because they were issued not only on 45 rpm but also on 78 rpm, you will find details about them on this separate page.)

NOTES:



In the United States, almost all of Peggy Lee's singles for Decca Records were released on both 78 rpm and 45 rpm. There are only four exceptions. One of them is the item shown herein. (I must stress that this comment is circumscribed to the American edition of the single, which was released on 78 rpm in other countries, including Japan. For the Japanese edition, see this discography's chronologically arranged 78 index, year 1957). As for the other three exceptions, those were singles issued in later years (1958, 1959, 1964), when Lee was no longer under contract with the label. Decca released such later singles in tandem with Peggy Lee albums. Some of the albums were actually compilations which which the company aimed at cashing in on the singer's continuing popularity during those years.


Title: {Baby, Baby, Wait For Me / Every Night}

NOTES:



Capitol 45-rpm single #3722 was sent to radio stations with a misleading label that read "promotional debut record." Though by no means Peggy Lee's debut record, it was the singer's first release after her return to the label that she had left five years earlier. Shown above is Capitol's promotional ad for this single.




The above-seen images show the two sides of the commercial 45-rpm single and also both sides of its promotional version.





Though only listed as a 45-rpm release in the Capitol files that I consulted, single #3722 exists in 78-rpm format, too. I have seen copies on the web. They do appear to be of American, not foreign origin: the legend "manufactured by Capitol Records, Inc. . Hollywood, California . U.S.A." appears on the physical label. As already mentioned, the present page makes room for a few exceptions to its policy of listing original 45-rpm singles with no 78-rpm counterpart in their country of origin. I have made one of such exceptions for Capitol single #3722, in part because I wanted to maintain the chronological flow of these discographical pages. See also notes under the 1958 single "Fever / You Don't Know."


Title: {Listen To The Rockin' Bird / Uninvited Dream}
Artist: Peggy Lee

Bennett (b), Lou Levy (p), Mel Lewis (d), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:



Shown above are two pieces of promotion on behalf of this single. The first is a trade ad, the second a British demo, presumably sent to radio stations or to other pertinent outfits. It is also worth noting that, while the original USA release came out only on 45-rpm speed, its British counterpart was also issued on 78 rpm. (The shown demo is a 45-rpm disc, however.)




Seen directly above are the USA commercial single and a promo of that single. Shown below is the same single's Japanese edition, whose catalogue number (7P 67) is different from the one used for the original American release and the British counterpart (F 3811 in both cases).




Title: {Fever / You Don't Know [1958 master]}
Artist: Peggy Lee
Format: 45     Label: CAPITOL     Cat. Num.: F 3998     Rel. Year: 1958

NOTES:



Peggy Lee's recording of "Fever" debuted in Billboard's Hot 100 during the week of July 21, 1958. It peaked at #8 and stayed in the chart for 13 weeks. At Cashbox, it did even better, peaking at #6 and spending 14 weeks in the Best Selling Singles chart. The song also reached the top ten of two specialized Billboard charts: #9 in the Best Seller list, #10 in the Jockey list. Shown above are two "collective" Capitol trade ads that promoted the number.





Of the above-seen images, the middle one displays the promotional version of the 45-rpm single that was sent out to radio stations; it was housed in a sleeve bearing a sensationalistic text. The other images exhibit both sides of the commercial single.





Capitol's session files indicate that the single Fever / You Don't Know was released on 45-rpm speed in both the United States (#3998) and the United Kingdom (#14902). There is no listing whatsoever for a 78-rpm disc. However, the first of the images seen directly above suggest that the single did come out on 78 rpm in the United States, and the second image proves that it was issued on that speed in the United Kingdom. Perhaps the US Capitol files that I consulted omitted the 78-rpm disc because, by the mid-1950s, that format had become something of a specialty, and was on its way out. (Naturally, this popular single was issued by Capitol in countries such as Canada and Argentina -- on 45-rpm and, as also displayed above, on 78 rpm speed.)

To reiterate a point made at the outset of the present page, I am listing herein singles that have been issued only on 45-rpm discs in their country of origin. Capitol single #3998 is one of the very few exceptions that I have allowed to go through, out of a desire to maintain the chronological flow of these discographical pages.

NOTES:



The gospel-tinged "Light Of Love" peaked at #63. After its debut during the week of November 3, 1958, it spent six weeks in Billboard's Hot 100. The flip side managed to crack the top 100, staying at #98 for two weeks in November of 1958. "Sweetheart" actually fared slightly better in Cashbox's Top 100 Singles, earning a #92 peak.

In Canada, Capitol #4071 had a warmer reception. Tabulated as an unity, "Light Of Love" and "Sweetheart" reached #30 in CHUM's Weekly Hit Parade, a top 50 airplay chart tabulated by Toronto's radio station CHUM. (Incidentally, the single was also issued on 78 rpm in Canadian land.)


Title: {Blues In The Night / Singing The Blues [vocal by Guy Mitchell]}
Artist: Peggy Lee
Format: AFRS 45     Label: US Government's Army Recruitment Service     Cat. Num.: Oss 1734-1735     Rel. Year: 1958
03:15 December 24, 1941; 11:00 a.m. - 4:00 p.m. CO 32051-1 Master Take (Columbia) Blues In The Night (Harold Arlen, Johnny Mercer)

NOTES:





In addition to the performances by Peggy Lee (with the Benny Goodman Orchestra) and Guy Mitchell, this Army Recruitment single features an announcer who identifies both sides as previously issued in Columbia's "Hall Of Fame" EP series. That series was dedicated to million sellers only, states the announcer. I have found no corroboration for the claim that the Goodman-Lee number was a million seller. At the present time, I can only say that, given the absence of verification, the claim is not highly likely -- though neither is it impossible.


Title: {Alright, Ok, You Win / My Man}
Artist: Peggy Lee
Format: 45     Label: CAPITOL     Cat. Num.: F 4115     Rel. Year: 1959
02:52 05/25/1958 19202-5 Master Take (Capitol) Alright, Okay, You Win (Mayme Watts, Sidney Wyche)

NOTES:



"Alright, Okay, You Win" entered Billboard's Hot 100 during the week of January 26, 1959 and stayed for six weeks, peaking at #68. It became Lee's 51st entry in Billboard's singles charts -- and her fourth hit after returning to Capitol. It also charted in Cashbox's Best Selling Singles chart, where it spent seven weeks and peaked at #62.

"My Man" entered the Hot 100 during the week of January 19, 1959 and stayed for six weeks in the chart, peaking at #81. Its showing was slightly better in Cashbox's Top 100 Singles chart: a #76 peak and a seven-week-stay total.

Capitol #4115 also fared well when it traveled north of the border. The single peaked at #28 in CHUM's Weekly Hit Parade, a top 50 airplay chart tabulated by Toronto's radio station CHUM.

Shown above is a Capitol trade ad for a batch of singles released in early 1959, including the 45-rpm disc being discussed, whose two sides can be seen below.

NOTES:



Capitol single #4189 was released in both mono and stereo. Visually, the two can be differentiated by the color of the label (red or purple-violet) and by the prefix letter in the catalogue number (F or S).

NOTES:



Capitol 45-rpm disc #4189 was released in both mono and stereo. Visually, the two can be differentiated by the color of the label (red or purple) and by the prefix letter in the catalogue number (F or S). This item was part of the very first batch of stereo singles ever issued by Capitol Records. Released between April and May of 1959, the batch consisted of six singles whose catalogue numbers ran from 4168 to 4193. According to the Both Sides Now discographical website, they were:

S4168 - Castin' My Spell / Telephone Baby (Johnny Otis Show)
S4176 - The Bunny Hop / Walkin' To Mother's (Ray Anthony)
S4189 - Hallelujah, I Love Him So/ I'm Lookin' Out the Window (Peggy Lee)
S4192 - Here I Am / Big Fat Sally (Ronnie And Roy)

NOTES:




This single's label is red, a color that Capitol seems to have used as a code for its stereo line of 45-rpm releases in the late 1950s and early 1960s.

NOTES:



Released in the United Kingdom, not in the United States. Unlike American 45-rpm singles, whose large inner holes required the insertion of a so-called 45-rpm record adapter before they could be played on a turntable, 45-rpm singles in the United Kingdom had the same type of small hole that is found in 12" LPs. For many years, British and Australian editions of these singles also allowed for the option of detaching the area surrounding the small hole, thereby rendering the single playable only with a 45-rpm record adapter, like the American counterparts. (The presumed rationale for making this option available would have been the needs of portable record player and jukebox machine owners. When it came to 45-rpm singles, jukebox machines were able to play them only if they had large holes; ditto for some portable record players.)

NOTES:



The label of this single identifies one of its songs as "Bucket Of Tears." In all other sources, including the Capitol album The Hits Of Peggy Lee, the title is found with an initial article: "A Bucket Of Tears." We thus have a minor discrepancy. (In its online documentation, copyright owner BMI does not include the initial article, but this piece of information is deceptive: skipping initial articles is a standard practice in BMI's database.) For the time being, I am listing the song as "A Bucket Of Tears" everywhere else in this discography.

NOTES:





Peggy Lee was one of various Capitol artists who recorded a promotional spot in support of the Marine Reserve charity campaign Toys for Tots, which distributes toys to children in need. "Toys for Tots" singles were not sold in commercial stores; they probably were sent directly to Marine Corps facilities and radio stations. A so-called release year is thus harder than usual to pinpoint, and the one given above is in need of confirmation. Nat King Cole, Vic Damone, and Nancy Wilson were among the other artists who recorded the spot. All of them are presumed to have sung the lyrics to a pre-recorded track.

Peggy Lee (ldr), Dave Cavanaugh (pdr), John Kraus (eng), Bill Holman (arr, con), Jack Marshall (arr), Bill Holman and His Orchestra, Jack Marshall's Music (acc), Peggy Lee (v), Other Individuals Unknown (unk)

NOTES:



Faced with a prohibition to include the showtune "Till There Was You" in the 1960 British edition of the LP Latin Ala Lee! (due to the fact that the show had yet to premiere in the United Kingdom), EMI decided to instead issue the song on a British single about a year later, when restrictions no longer applied. In the United States, the number was never issued as a single.

"Till There Was You" made its debut in the British music chart during the week of March 25, 1961 and stayed for just a week, placing at #40. But shortly afterwards (during the week of April 8), it re-entered the chart, staying for three more weeks. That second time around, it peaked at #30.

This belated release of "Till There Was You" had a felicitous side effect. Paul McCartney heard the single and loved Lee's rendition. The song was recorded by The Beatles soon thereafter. An admiring McCartney eventually wrote and produced a track for a Lee album, too. (See early June, 1974 session.)

The label of this single identifies one of its songs as "Bucket Of Tears." Most everywhere else, the song is listed with an initial article ("A Bucket Of Tears").

Bennett (b), James "Jimmy" Rowles (p), Abe Rosen (hrp), Stan Levey (d), Francisco "Chino" Pozo (bo, cng, per), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:



This single combines a song from the Basin Street East dates ("Yes, Indeed!") with a song from Lee's ensuing Blues Cross Country sessions ("Boston Beans"). Curiously, a Capitol ad for this single suggests that it was rush-released. The alleged reason for the rush was the unexpected demand for "Boston Beans," particularly in the Massachusetts record market. There were also intimations of public appreciation for the song in the United Kingdom, where this single was also issued. (See pictures of both the US and UK 45 rpm discs below.) If these claims about the song's demand and popularity are true -- rather than mere promotional overstatement, as they very well may be -- then perhaps both sides of the single were originally slated to contain numbers from the Basin Street East sessions, and the substitution was made once word of an incipient interest in "Boston Beans" poured in.

According to an oral report for which I have no official confirmation, at one point in time Capitol had the intention to release a single containing Peggy Lee's rendition of "Moments Like This" from the Basin Street East sessions. Although I was not oven any other details on this matter, it occurs to me that Capitol disc #4576 could have been the single for which rendition was under consideration. (To further clarify: the version of "Moments Like This" in question was not the live one heard in the Basin Street East LP but a studio remake. Producer Cavanaugh probably scheduled the recording of that remake with the intention of using it as a substitute for the live take in that album. The live take ultimately prevailed and was released on the LP, however. Meanwhile, "Boston Beans" became the official pick for release on the 45-rpm disc. Hence the studio remake of "Moments Like This" languished in Capitol's vaults, unissued, until 2002, when it was finally included in The Singles Collection.)

NOTES:



The item on display is a promotional 45-rpm disc. For reasons unknown to me, no commercial single from the album Blues Cross Country was ever sent out for retail. ("Boston Beans" was actually issued on a single, but only as the B side of a disc whose A side bears no connection to Blues Cross Country. "Hey, Look Me Over" was another song from these Blues Cross Country sessions that was released on 45-rpm, but that song was not included in the album, and does not bear any thematic connection to it.) Perhaps the album cuts were not deemed to have commercial appeal, as they were either old standards or specialty tunes that Lee herself had written. The one exception to that general description is the opening cut, "Kansas City," which is the tune picked for this promotional item, and which could have easily garnered sales as well as radio airplay for Lee. Perhaps another Capitol artist had also recorded the Leiber & Stoller tune around the same time, and Capitol might have decided to promote that version over Lee's.

NOTES:




Seen above are the earliest pressings of Capitol #6014, along with both sides of its sleeve. This 1962 single was part of Capitol's Star Line, a reissue series dedicated to the company's most successful numbers and to the acts who popularized them. I do not know which of these two pressings was the original one from 1962, nor do I know how much time elapsed before the other pressing came out. (The golden label strikes me as likelier to be the original, but I could very well be mistaken.)

Lest readers become confused, I should emphasize that the above-shown single is not the original 45-rpm release of "Fever," but a reissue, dating from 1962. The original issue of Lee's "Fever" was #3998, a 1958 single already listed in this page. Similarly, flip side "Alright, Okay, You Win" first came out in a 1959 single that was previously discussed, too.





Over the decades, Capitol re-released single #6014 numerous times. Each re-release uses the same catalogue number and features the same pair of songs, but bears a different, re-designed label. So far, I have tracked down seven Capitol re-releases, and I do not discard the possibility that there were more. Two of those six re-releases can be seen above. The one with a green label came out at some point between 1965 and 1967, the one with the red-white label between 1968 and 1972.





Two more re-releases can be seen here. Their respective labels have colors which due to discoloration with the passing of time, might make them seem identical. However, they can be distinguished from another due to some minor features on which they differ. Look, for instance, at their respective Capitol logos. The first release came out some time between 1972 and 1978. The second was released between 1978 and 1981.





A prefix appears in the catalogue number of the above-seen Capitol re-releases. Both A-6014 and X 6014 bear blue labels. Reissue A-6014 was released in 1981 or 1982, reissue X 6014 between 1982 and 1986. Additionally, reissue X 6014 can also be found in a pressing that adds a dash between the letter and the numbers (i.e., X-6014).





In the row immediately above, the reissue which bears Capitol's rainbow rings dates from some time between 1983 and 1988.

As can be gathered from the remaining two images, single #6014 was licensed to the reissue label Collectables, which issued it under the company's own catalogue number.

Readers interested in further pursuing the topic of Peggy Lee's version of "Fever" on 45 rpm should also bear in mind the foreign market. Abroad, the single "Fever" has been reissued numerous times as well, though not in combination with "Alright, Okay, You Win." (About 10 of such non-domestic reissues are listed in this discography's page for foreign issues -- without pictures.)

In the United Kingdom, the song was released not once but twice on Peggy Lee EMI singles (1963, 1967). As indicated above, the song "The Best Is Yet To Come" also appeared only as an album cut in the USA.

NOTES:



Although including in this page of 45-rpm singles because it is a single (and because I am trying to maintain a chronological arrangement), this release is actually a so-called 33-rpm Capitol compact long play.

On the label of the vinyl, the word "garota" has been printed with an accent on the letter "o." That accent on "garota" is not found in any of the Portuguese texts that I have consulted.

NOTES:



When the album Black Coffee was released in its original 10" and 12" LP versions (1953, 1956), its titular (and nowadays often celebrated) track was not among the ones chosen for issue on a single. The above-seen single belatedly rectified the matter. In addition to this 1964 single, MCA would again reissue the song on 45-rpm single almost twenty years later, in 1982 (as will also be shown in this page, further down below.)

Of the four photos seen directly above, the first two show the promotional version of the single. (The difference in color -- red versus orange -- is probably the result of faded shades in the case of "You've Got To See Mama Every Night" side.) The third and fourth photos show the commercially issued single. Notice, however, that these appear to be two different pressings of the same single. The catalogue number is the same but not positioning of some of the information, including the catalogue number itself.

NOTES:



Since the advent of rock 'n' roll, singles by vintage pop-jazz artists such as Peggy Lee had been at a serious disadvantage in Billboard's charts. Data from adult contemporary stations was not being published. The magazine had been tabulating airplay mostly from stations that concentrated on kiddie pop and other mainstream music. This situation was finally rectified in 1965, when Billboard started publishing a tally for adult-oriented popular music in a chart that over the years has been variously called Easy Listening, Pop-Standard, Middle-of-the-Road, or Adult Contemporary. (For more details about this chart, see notes under Capitol session dated December 9, 1964.) During the week of March 13, 1965, "Pass Me By" reached a #20 position in that chart.

"Pass Me By" also made the lower part of the more mainstream charts. In Billboard's Hot 100, the song made its debut during the week of February 27, 1965 and stayed for 3 weeks, peaking at #93. In Cashbox's Top 100 Singles, it debuted one week earlier (February 20, 1965) and spent 4 weeks. Cashbox tallied together the popularity of two recordings of "Pass Me By," Peggy Lee's and Mike Douglas'; they peaked at #86.

Peggy Lee (ldr), Dave Cavanaugh (pdr), Peggy Lee (v), The Chipmunks (bkv), Other Individuals Unknown (unk)

NOTES:
Peggy Lee was one of various Capitol artists who recorded a promotional spot in support of the Marine Reserve charity campaign Toys for Tots, which distributes toys to children in need. Other artists to do so were Nat King Cole, Vic Damone and Nancy Wilson. In their respective versions, the same "Toys For Tots" lyrics and tune are heard; the singers may have sung their interpretations to a pre-recorded track. All "Toys for Tots" singles are likely to have been sent directly to Marine Corps facilities and to radio stations, and not sold in commercial stores.

An earlier "Toys For Tots" single (Kb 2820, tentatively dated 1960) is listed in Peggy Lee's Capitol session file. As for this single (Tb 2497-2498), it is not listed therein. I learned of its existence through secondary sources. Since Nancy Wilson recorded her version in June of 1965, this single is likely to have been produced and sent to radio stations in the second half of 1965, or otherwise in 1966. The release year that I have entered for Tb 2497-2498 should thus be deemed approximate, and subject to alteration. (An additional note: Capitol also produced a jukebox 33 rpm single that paired Wilson's version of "Toys For Tots" with Buck Owens' take on the same promotional spot.)

NOTES:



There are at least four French-British 45-rpm singles that pair "Fever" with "I'm A Woman." The one discussed here is the earliest of which I am aware. The other three were on EMI's long-running "Dance For Ever" series (the first issued in 1972, the reissues dating from 1975 and 1979). The present one is dated 1966 in one source, 1968 in another. Additional 45-rpm singles pairing the two numbers appeared as part of the Dutch series "Do You Remember" (1979) and as part of the British series "Music In Gold" series (1979). And that's not all. In the 1990s, this same some pairing was revived after one of the numbers ("Fever") was used for a TV commercial. The commercial reignited interest in Lee's hit number, and EMI responded by reissuing the "Fever/I'm A Woman" single in various European countries (1992).

NOTES:



The first of the above-shown sleeves belongs to a Scandinavian edition of this single, the second to a French edition which also seems to have been issued in Germany. Pathé Marconi was EMI's issuing sub-label in France; EMI Bovema in Scandinavia. My acquaintance with both editions is limited to commercial websites, whose degree of reliability and accuracy vary widely. Some of such sites give 1965 release dates to these items, whereas others list them as issued in 1969. The most logical choice is 1969, because the 1969 Universal film Sweet Charity is referenced in both sleeves.

NOTES:



Peggy Lee's single of "Is That All There Is?" enjoyed extensive chart success. In Billboard's Adult Contemporary chart, it reached #1 during the week of October 18, 1969 and stayed in that position for two weeks. Earlier, on October 11, 1969, "Is That All There Is?" had also entered Billboard's Hot 100, where it eventually peaked at #11.

In the Cash Box Top 100 Singles chart, "Is That All There Is?" reached #10 during the week of November 8, 1969. It made its debut on September 27 and went on to stay in that chart until the week of December 6, for a total of 11 weeks. In Record World's chart, Lee's recording did even better. It peaked at #8.

In Canada, "Is That All There Is?" reached #6 in the RPM 100 chart and #1 in the Young Adult chart of RPM Weekly. The number reached those peak positions during November 1969.

Shown above are Capitol's trade ads, along with the picture sleeve of versions of this issue from Japan (Cr 2410) and the Netherlands (5C 006.80.182). Shown below are both sides of the original 45-rpm single, as well as Capitol's sleeves for this single. Bear in mind that the company also released single #2602 in an alternate version, to be discussed immediately after this entry.

NOTES:



Capitol's motivation for releasing this alternate version of 45-rpm single #2602 is unknown to me. A few clues can be gathered from a comparison between the two discs' labels.

1) In the original release, songwriter Jerry Leiber's last name is misspelled once (on the "Is That All There Is?" side of the disc). In the alternate version, the misspelling has been corrected.

2) The alternate also has one credit that is missing from the original: "Is That All There Is" is identified as a song "from the forthcoming production International Wrestling Match." (This credit, also found in the LP Is That All There Is?, refers to a Leiber & Stoller Broadway production that was ultimately cancelled.

3) The original single features the standard "Me And My Shadow" on its B side. The re-release substitute it with "I'm A Woman," a song also written by Leiber & Stoller back in the early 1960s. Both numbers were included in the LP Is That All There Is?, though only the former was a new recording. The latter had been recorded in 1962. "Me And My Shadow" was produced by Leiber & Stoller; "I'm A Woman" was produced by Dave Cavanaugh, but Leiber & Stoller were present at the session and claim to have contributed with substantial input.

Cumulatively, these details point to a request from the songwriters as a likely reason for the single's re-release.

NOTES:



"Whistle For Happiness" was the third Leiber & Stoller number that Peggy Lees placed in the Billboard charts. Its six weeks in the Easy Listening chart began on December 20, 1969. In the Unites States, it peaked at #13. "Whistle For Happiness" also charted in Canada's RPM Weekly, reaching the top 20 of the Adult chart (#19, January 1970) and the top 80 of the RPM100 chart. Below is Capitol's promotional ad for the song and single. Notice that flip side "Something" is not even mentioned -- perhaps to avoid any competition with the version by The Beatles, which was still popular when Lee's own version was issued.

NOTES:



Peggy Lee's version of "Love Story" appeared in the Easy Listening chart during the week of February 7, 1970. It spent five weeks therein, peaking at #26. In March 1970, it similarly reached #25 in the Adult chart of Canada's RPM Weekly, too. Lee's treatment of "Love Story" also made Billboard's Bubbling Under The Hot 100 chart at #105.

NOTES:
I have no specifics about this special version of Capitol single #2721, reportedly prepared for radio airplay only. Nor have I ever heard it. Apparently, its version of "Love Story" was shortened to satisfy the demands or expectations of radio disc jockeys. However, if such was the case, why wasn't flip side "My Old Flame" shortened as well?

NOTES:



Peggy Lee had a #21 Easy Listening hit with her Capitol version of "One More Ride On The Merry-Go-Round." The single entered that Billboard chart during the week of October 3, 1970 and stayed for five weeks. Both sides of the original American original single are show above.






Several non-American editions of this single are shown directly above. Many of them have picture sleeves. First up are the sleeves of the Italian and Dutch and Italian pressings (EMI Italiana 006-80592; EMI Bovema C 006.80.592), which are essentially the same. (The sleeve sides on display are the back in the case of the Italian single, the front in the case of the Dutch single.)

Next up is a version of the single that wears a plain yellow sleeve. Having been unable to determine its country of origin, I can only presume it to be either German or Scandinavian. Then there is the Japanese edition (CR-2829), with its far more cinematic sleeve. Last up is the front and back of the Australian version of the single (CP-9259).

NOTES:





As these images evince, Capitol Starline single 6161 was reissued numerous times. Seen above is the "Spinning Wheel" side of all five (re)issues. Some of the flip sides are viewable below, though . (I am missing images for two of them.)

Of these images, the first one shows an edition that came out between 1978 and 1981, the second probably in 1972, the third between 1969 and 1972, the fourth (A-6161) in 1981 or 1982, the fifth and sixth (both numbered X-6161) between 1982 and 1986.




Capitol's Starline series was dedicated to reissues. Accordingly, both songs in this single had been previously issued on other 45-rpm discs. "Is That All There Is?" " had originally appeared in Capitol single #4888, issued in 1962; "Spinning Wheel" had first shown up in Capitol single #2477, also from 1977.

A curious detail: Capitol Starline singles 6161 and 6191 are both dedicated to Peggy Lee masters, and they even share one song, "Is That All There Is?"

NOTES:




Seen above is Capitol Starline single #6191, which was issued a minimum of four times. The edition with the light brown label is from 1972. The first of the editions with the blue label (catalogue number A-6191) is from either 1981 or 1982. The second blue-labeled edition (catalogue number X-6191) dates from the 1982-1986 period, as does the rainbow-colored edition. (I am missing a picture for the "Is That All There Is" side of edition X-6191.)

Capitol's Starline series was dedicated to reissues. Accordingly, both songs in this single had been previously issued on other 45-rpm discs. "I'm A Woman" had originally appeared in Capitol single #4888, issued in 1962; "Is That All There Is?" had first shown up in Capitol single #2602, from 1969.

A curious detail: Capitol Starline singles 6161 and 6191 are both dedicated to Peggy Lee masters, and they even share one song, "Is That All There Is?"

NOTES:



Written especially for her, Paul McCartney's composition "Let's Love" became Peggy Lee's 70th and last entry in Billboard's song charts. Lee's chart debut had taken place back in 1941, when she was part of The Benny Goodman Orchestra. She made her debut with Duke Ellington's "I Got It Bad." As for the songstress' first entry as a solo artist, it was "Waitin' For The Train To Come In" (according to Joel Whitburn's Pop Memories, 1890-1954), released in 1945.

"Let's Love" peaked at #22 in Billboard's Easy Listening chart during the week of November 2, 1974. It also charted in the Contemporary Adult chart of Canada's RPM Weekly, where it peaked at #41 in the December 21, 1974 issue.

NOTES:



The American edition (#1771) of this A&M single is shown in the first row above. The second row presents both the disc and the sleeve of the British edition (#7213). (As for the American sleeve, it is not displayed above. I believe it to be a plain, simple sleeve.) Aside from the sleeves, the most noticeable differences between these American and British editions pertain to (a) catalogue numbering and (b) amount of text featured in the label of the vinyl.

NOTES:



A&M single #1771 exists in two versions. The regular, commercial version features the songs "Some Cats Know" and "I Remember." The other version is a promo that features "Some Cats Know" only, on both sides of the single. One side offers the song in full (4:22), whereas the other side presents it in edited form (3:39). The first of the above-shown images is believed to spotlight an American copy, the last a British copy. The other copies are believed to be either Canadian or American. All promo versions use the catalogue number of the US commercial edition. See also note under preceding entry.

NOTES:



In the United States, "Black Coffee" was originally released on LP (1953) and, belatedly, on 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. (In the case of foreign singles, this discographical page lists only those that do not contain the same songs as the American originals.)

NOTES:






I am familiar with this issue only through the above-seen pictures. Judging from the existence of sleeves in different colors (violet, black), it was released at least twice. Notice also that, on both sides of the vinyl, the claim is made that the contents are in stereo. However, I remain doubtful that the fairly rare stereo version of "Fever" was used. For that reason, and until I receive confirmation telling me otherwise, I will be identifying the included version of "Fever" as the regular one in mono.

NOTES:



One of two Peggy Lee singles released in this long-running "Dance For Ever" series. The other single -- an often reissued one -- contains "Fever" and "I'm A Woman." This single was also reissued, at least once (1990), and the reissue is listed below. In this issue, "Fever" is heard in stereo (not in mono, as is the case for most other releases).

NOTES:



This item is actually part of British EMI's Golden 45 reissue series, which consisted of popular45-rpm singles issued from March of 1984 to February of 1985. The roster of artists in the collection's catalogue ran from Queen (#1) and John Lennon (#2) to Sam Cooke (#44) and Donovan (#45). This item could also be perceived as a British counterpart to a single that was reissued numerous times in France in the 1970s, almost always as part of the long-running "Dance For Ever" French series.

NOTES:



This was a "special order" single, commissioned to be sold at The Ballroom nightclub in New York, during Peggy Lee's concerts. She performed at the Ballroom from 1985 to 1990. This item, for which I have found only a 1989 release date, was probably manufactured in response to audience demand for the two Lee hits included.

NOTES:



The back cover and label of this single contain the phrase "1958, Réedition de 1983." The 1983 date refers to single no. 28 from the "Dance Forever" series, of which the present single is a reissue. Notice that this is one of two European singles prepared after Peggy Lee's recording of "Fever" was heard on TV commercials there. The other single and TV commercial, from 1992, will be itemized next.

NOTES:



In Great Britain, Peggy Lee's version of "Fever" not only peaked at #5 when it was first released there (1958), but it also managed to re-enter the British charts in 1992, reaching the #75 slot. This re-entry was the result of a TV commercial that featured the song, and which compelled EMI to issue the CD single under discussion. The above-seen front cover is actually a shot from the commercial, which at the time of this writing could still be seen here

This item also exists in the CD single format, sporting the exact same front cover but incorporating two more songs. (See below.) Both the 45-rpm single and the CD single identify themselves as being from "the forthcoming album Fever." The album in question was probably Alan Dell's fine 1992 CD of the same title, released in the United Kingdom.

NOTES:



The item under discussion was released by EMI in the wake of a popular TV commercial for the fragrance Impulse Free Spirit, which used Lee's version of "Fever" and brought her hit back into the European music charts. The above-seen front cover is actually a shot from the commercial. At the time of this writing, the TV spot could still be seen here.

Some music catalogues claim that this 4-song item came in a cassette single edition as well; I have yet to find actual proof of the cassette's existence. More easily to corroborate was, on the other hand, the existence of the two-song single 45-rpm edition, with the exact same front cover. See preceding entry.

Whereas this 4-song CD single identifies itself as "made in Holland," music catalogues and online vendors list the two-song counterpart as British. It may well be that both editions were released in more than one European country; it could also be that different markets chose a different quantity of tracks. I have chosen to list both formats as British.

Both on CD and 45-rpm single, this item identifies itself as being from "the forthcoming album Fever." The reference was probably to Alan Dell's excellent 1992 CD of the same title, released in the United Kingdom.


Title: [Gilbert O'Sullivan And Peggy Lee] CAN'T THINK STRAIGHT
Artist: Peggy Lee
Format: CD single     Label: PARK     Cat. Num.: (United Kingdom) Parkcd 15      Rel. Year: 1992
04:04 August or Early September 1992 Master Take (Park?) Can't Think Straight (Raymond O'Sullivan)

NOTES:



This CD single describes itself as an advance sample from the album Sounds Of The Loop. One year after its release, Park indeed released said album, which had been actually been issued in Japan before. (The original Japanese version contains the same tracks except in the case of "Can't Think Straight," which features not Peggy Lee but another vocal partner. For additional details, consult this discography's Chesky Contract And The Guest Vocals page.)

The present single actually contains not one nor two but three songs, all of them written by Gilbert O'Sullivan: "Can't Think Straight", "Sometimes", and "Divorce Irish Style." (As already explained, the fine print in this item states that its three songs were "taken from the forthcoming album Sounds Of The Loop.)

In the front cover, "Gilbert O'Sullivan & Peggy Lee" are jointly identified as the featured act, and the two artists are seen together. The more accurate billing for Lee would have been guest star, since the single's other two songs feature O'Sullivan alone (naturally).

The cover's photograph has a slightly fake appearance which initially led me to assume that two shots -- one of each singer -- had been pasted together. I still feel that such might be the case, but I am also considering the possibility that the two artists were photographed together. If the latter, the appearance of "fakeness" would be cause by the obliteration of the photo's background, and its substitution with a yellow canvas. (The clothes seen in the photo are the same ones that the artists are seen wearing for the video of the song which they made.)

Except for the year, the recording date assigned to this performance is approximate. The exact day of recording is unknown; the month is believed to have been either August or early September. The personnel should also be considered tentative. It is a collective personnel, taken from the Sounds Of The Loop album.

Peggy Lee (ldr), Victor Young (arr, con), Victor Young And His Singing Strings (acc), Vicente Gomez (g), Unknown (b, p), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:









As can be amply seen above, there have been numerous editions of the Japanese 45-rpm single under discussion. Unfortunately, I know of no explanation for this variety, nor do I count with specifics such as release dates or the sequence in which each edition came out. (If I were asked to make an educated guess, the first of the above-shown pictures sleeves would be my candidate for the original one. I have found no editions or variations for it.) One seller gives the date 1958 one of the green-colored 45-rpm discs.

It is worth noting that, visually, all these sleeves follow a pattern: each one features a still from the movie Johnny Guitar. We may divide this batch of sleeves into sub-groups, based on which movie still graces the front cover.

The largest sub-group includes at least nine sleeves. (I use the qualifier "at least" because there could very well be additional sleeves of which I am yet to become aware.) When I first became aware of the existence of this large sub-group, I assumed that each of the seven sleeves had been released at a different time. I am now entertaining the alternative possibility that some if not all of them were simultaneously issued.

Decca single Ds 98 consisted of the vinyl, an outer cover (i.e., the picture sleeve) and an inner, additional sleeve for the vinyl. The latter can be seen in the fourth row above.

As for the color of the vinyl's label, so far I have seen just the three versions included above: some are red, some are in one of two variations of blue. This is true of not only of the sub-label that features different background colors, but also the other Decca Ds 98 reissues whose labels I have inspected.

Of the 14 front picture sleeves shown in the present entry, I should clarify that all the ones displayed above bear the catalogue number Ds 98. Of the trio of items seen below, only the first of them bears that number. (Incidentally, that first item identifies itself as being part of a suitably titled "Eternal 2" series.)

The second item shown below is a complete mystery to me. It seems to include "Johnny Guitar" but I am unclear as to whether Peggy Lee's version is the one featured. Moreover, "Autumn In Rome" might not be part of this release, which I am including here in the hope that a collector or a Japanese reader can kindly help me with the missing details. An online seller has given United Artists as the releasing company, but I have not found any corroboration elsewhere.

The third and last item uses a different catalogue number (D45-237), but does include the same pairing as Ds 98 (i.e., "Johnny Guitar" / "Autumn In Rome"). This particular item actually has a 78-rpm counterpart and, for that reason, is further discussed in this discography's pictorial index for 78 & 45 issues. (The discussion of the 78-rpm disc is located near the bottom of that index, among the undated singles).

Garrod states that this master was "not used" -- i.e., not issued at all. The pictures shown above proves that, at the very least, promotional copies were pressed.

NOTES:



Judging from the first two images seen above (found online), this Italian single was either issued twice or released with the same photo on both its front cover and its sleeve. (Though it is the same photo, notice only that the singers, songs, and songwriters are printed in only one version.) Also shown above is the back cover of one of the versions (in very low resolution, unfortunately).

NOTES:



My only acquaintance with this issue is through the image supplied above, which I found on the web. The inclusion of "Christmas Carousel" is dependent on whether I am correctly seeing -- or guessing -- the image's hardly readable second song title. (Both titles are hard to read, but the first is comparatively easier to figure out.)
