NOTES:
 Comments About This Issue

New American Jazz (Set A-3) was only the third album ever released by Capitol Records. The two previous album releases had been Songs By Johnny Mercer (A-1, featuring Mercer with The Pied Pipers as well as Jo Stafford) and Christmas Carols, (A-2, by the St. Luke's Choristers.) Belonging to the 78-rpm era, all three albums consisted of shellac discs at that speed.

By all indications, New American Jazz was a popular album. Critically, it was unanimously well received. I believe that it also sold well, although I have no factual confirmation on the matter. (Because I have come across album copies with the words "second printing November 1944," I am under the impression that Capitol ran out of its first 'printing' within the first year of release.)

The four 78-rpm discs found in New American Jazz are:

10009: "Clambake In B-Flat" (instrumental) / "I'm Sorry I Made You Cry" (vocal by Jack Teagarden)
10010: "Casanova's Lament" (vocal by Jack Teagarden) / "In My Solitude" (instrumental)
10111: "Sugar" (instrumental) / "Ain't Goin' No Place" ("blues vocal" by Peggy Lee)
10112 "Someday, Sweetheart" (instrumental) / "That Old Feeling" (vocal by Peggy Lee)

All eight sides are credited to The Capitol Jazzmen. The songs on discs #10009 and #10010 come from a November 16, 1943 date in which Peggy Lee did not participate. (Her husband, guitarist Dave Barbour, did. Jack Teagarden fulfilled the vocal role in that date.) The songs on discs #1011 and #10112 come from the January 7, 1944 session in which Lee was the featured vocalist.










General Comments About This Index

All albums are listed chronologically by year of release. Issues for which I have no release date are relegated to the bottom of the page. Readers who do not know an album's release year but who do know the album's title will hopefully be aware of the existence of a handy "Find/Search" engine in their computers' browsers (generally located at the top left of the screen, under the "Edit" menu).

Primarily, I have indexed three types of albums: LPs, EPs, and 78-rpm albums. CDs have been indexed in a separate page, and the same is true of singles (45-rpm discs, 78-rpm discs, et cetera). As for secondary configurations such as 8-track cartridges and reel-to-reel tapes, I have made no active attempt at including all of them in this page, but selected titles will be found herein, too.

Non-American albums have been excluded when they have a USA counterpart. (By "counterpart," I mean an album that contains the exact same tracks and the same basic artwork as the American original.) I have prepared separate pages for such counterparts; consult this discography's Miscellanea section, here and here. Similarly, compilations featuring various artists are not part of this index, save for the few that include previously unissued Peggy Lee numbers, and a few more that came out at an early date and strike me as worthy of attention. (Various-artists compilations actually have their own page, too, here.) Finally, please bear in mind that this index remains under construction and proofreading. Corrections are certainly appreciated.


Title: [Various Artists] Jerome Kern's Music (Criterion Series)
Artist: Capitol's roster
Format: 78-rpm album/EP/(10")LP     Label: CAPITOL     Cat. Num.: Cd 41(10072-10075)/Ccf 210(F 155501)[reissued as Ebf 210]/H 210 [rel. in 1950]     Rel. Year: 1947     Volumes: 4
02:47 09/23/1946 1227-4 Master Take (Capitol) She Didn't Say Yes (Jerome Kern, Otto Harbach)

Peggy Lee (ldr), Paul Weston (pdr), Dave Barbour And His Orchestra (acc), Unknown (sax, t, tb, g, b, p, d), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:
The songs and artists featured in Jerome Kern's Music are:

Side 1
The Way You Look Tonight - Paul Weston And His Orchestra
A Fine Romance - Johnny Mercer and Martha Tilton
Look For The Silver Lining - Margaret Whiting
Smoke Gets In Your Eyes - Nat King Cole Trio

Side 2
She Didn't Say Yes - Peggy Lee
The Touch Of Your Hand - Hal Derwin
Who? - The Pied Pipers
All The Things You Are - Clark Dennis

In its original (1947) configuration, Jerome Kern's Music was a 78-rpm album that contained four discs. The 78-rpm discs in the album were numbered 10072, 10073, 10074, and 10075. "She Didn't Say Yes" is on one side of #10075, whose flip side features an instrumental version of "The Way You Look Tonight." Capitol also issued it as the above-seen 45-rpm set and as a 10" LP (1950). In this 45-rpm album version, "She Didn't Say Yes" is in one side of #15501, whose other side contains "A Fine Romance," as sung by Johnny Mercer and Martha Tilton, in a duet version.

Jerome Kern's Music has not been released on CD. Granted that it is too brief to be issued just by itself in one digital disc, such an objection could be bypassed if the album were to be combined with another one. An ideal companion for Jerome Kern's Music would be Somebody Loves Me: The Beloved Songs Of Buddy De Sylva, which is also awaiting CD issue, and which was also originally released in 1947, about three months after this Kern songbook. Such an album pairing would be not only a logical combination but also an appropriate sequel to an item released some years ago: in 2008, DRG Records issued a CD that combined two other early Capitol albums, Kiss Me, Kate and South Pacific, each consisting of numbers interpreted by members of the label's roster. DRG would thus be an ideal candidate to issue the Kern and De Sylva albums, too.


Title: [Various Artists] Somebody Loves Me: The Beloved Songs Of Buddy DeSylva (Criterion Series)
Artist: Capitol's roster
Format: 78-rpm album     Label: CAPITOL     Cat. Num.: Cd 49 (10085-10088)     Rel. Year: 1947     Volumes: 4
02:55 01/29/1947 1615-2 Master Take (Capitol) Somebody Loves Me (Buddy G. DeSylva, George Gershwin, Ballard MacDonald)

Peggy Lee (ldr), Lee Gillette (pdr), Henry J. "Heinie" Beau (arr), Dave Barbour And His Orchestra (acc), Unknown (sax, t, tb), Dave Barbour (g), Phil Stephens (b), Edwin "Buddy" Cole (p), Tommy Romersa (d), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:
The songs and acts featured in this album are:

If I Had A Talking Picture Of You - Johnny Mercer and Martha Tilton
Just A Memory - Andy Russell
You're The Cream In My Coffee - The Nat King Cole Trio
Somebody Loves Me - Peggy Lee
Avalon - The Pied Pipers
April Showers - Margaret Whiting
When Day Is Done - Hal Derwin
Together - Clark Dennis

The album consists of four 78-rpm discs. Peggy Lee's "Somebody Loves Me" can be found on disc #10085, whose flip side has the Andy Russell performance.

This Buddy DeSylva songbook has never been issued on compact disc. If paired with the similarly oriented Jerome Kern's Music (see session dated September 23, 1946), it could make for a fine CD twofer. DRG Records would be a prime candidate to issue such a twofer. That noteworthy record company has already released a disc which similarly combined two 1940s albums featuring Capitol's roster of artists at the time: Kiss Me, Kate and South Pacific. (The latter is also listed in this page, year 1949.)

NOTES:
Originally slated for commercial issue in USA land in 1947, Benny's Best was ultimately cancelled. Benny Goodman expert David Jessup has persuasively conjectured on this subject matter. In his estimation, Columbia might have abandoned its plans for the release when Goodman decided to end his contract with the company, signing instead with rival label Capitol Records. The Columbia family of labels did release Benny's Best abroad, though. In Canada, it was given the catalogue number A-52 (discs 6322-6325). However, the Canadian track listing seems to be partially different from that of the version intended for American consumption: its only Peggy Lee track is "Why Don't You Do Right?".

The slated USA version of the album would have consisted of the following 78-rpm discs: #37243 ("Let's Dance" / "Why Don't You Do Right?"), #37244 ("Somebody Else Is Taking My Place" / "That Did It, Marie"), #37245 ("Jersey Bounce" / "A String Of Pearls") and #37246 ("Scatterbrain" / "On The Sunny Side Of The Street"). My thanks to Jack Kirschenbaum and to Dave Weiner for their kind assistance in tracking down the catalogue number of this prospective album, and to David Jessup for the revelation that it was left unissued in the USA.


Title: [Various Artists] Collector's Items - Top Drawer Jazz Classics (Americana Series)
Artist: Capitol's roster
Format: 78-rpm album     Label: CAPITOL     Cat. Num.: Ad 62 (48012-48015)     Rel. Year: 1948     Volumes: 4
02:56 12/27/1944 540-3 Master Take (Capitol) Baby (Is What He Calls Me) (Kay Butler)

NOTES:
The title of this 1948 album points to the fact that most of its songs had been recorded years earlier, yet left unissued until then. In addition to Peggy Lee, the other seven acts featured in the set are Benny Carter ("I Can't Get Started"), Sonny Greer ("Bug In A Rug"), The Hollywood Hucksters ("I Apologize"), Eddie Miller ("Just One More Chance"), Red Nichols ("Your Everything"), Rex Stewart's Big Eight ("T'Ain't Like That") and Stan Kenton. Besides Peggy Lee, the only other female heard in the album is Anita O'Day, making an appearance in her capacity as Stan Kenton's canary. O'Day sings "Travelin' Man," a number that she had recorded on January 5, 1945 -- that is to say, merely a few days after Lee recorded "Baby (Is What He Calls Me)." Peggy Lee's "Baby" can be found in 78-rpm disc #48014, whose flip side features the aforementioned Rex Stewart performance.

NOTES:
Benny Goodman, His Orchestra And Sextet; Vocals By Peggy Lee was originally issued as a 78-rpm album. Consisting of four 78-rpm discs (#38280 to #38283), the set was subsequently released with the same eight recordings in Canada but a different front cover, a shortened title, and another catalogue number (a70, featuring discs numbered from 6399 to 6402).

The Canadian set has an error on its front cover. Of the either song titles listed in that cover, the last one ("Somebody Loves Me") is incorrect. The title meant was "Somebody Nobody Loves." (Lee did not record "Somebody Loves Me" during her years with The Benny Goodman Orchestra.) This error is not found in the cover of C-170; the American set's eighth song is correctly listed.

The album under scrutiny also came out as a 10" LP and as a gatefold EP, with each format containing the same eight masters.

A clarification: although D. Russell Connor's definitive bio-discography of Benny Goodman lists EP B-406 under only four of the eight above-shown masters, that gatefold EP definitely contains all eight songs. This seems to be a rare case of error of omission on Russell Connor's part. The songs under which Connor neglects to list the EP are "My Little Cousin," "Not Mine," "Somebody Nobody Loves," and "On The Sunny Side Of The Street." In what seems to be an additional error, he also lists EP B-406 under "Blues In The Night."

Peggy Lee (ldr), Lee Gillette (pdr), Henry J. "Heinie" Beau (arr), Dave Barbour All-Stars, Dave Barbour And His Orchestra (acc), Peggy Lee (v), Other Individuals Unknown (unk)

NOTES:
The songs found in this album (and their interpreters) are:

(I'm In Love With) A Wonderful Guy - Margaret Whiting
Bali Ha'i - Peggy Lee
Younger Than Springtime - Gordon MacRae
Happy Talk / Honey Bun - Frank DeVol And His Orchestra
There Is Nothin' Like A Dame - Dave Barbour And His Orchestra
A Cock-eyed Optimist - Margaret Whiting
I'm Gonna Wash That Man Right Outta My Hair - Peggy Lee
Some Enchanted Evening - Gordon MacRae

The album originally came out in at least 3 configurations:

(a) A 78-rpm album titled Songs From Rodgers And Hammerstein's South Pacific (catalogue number CD-162), which contains four discs. "Bali Ha'i" can be found in a 78-rpm disc numbered 57-597. (Capitol's Peggy Lee session file erroneously lists the disc that contains "Bali Ha'i" as 54-597 (alb. Cdf-162). There are actually two errors in the file's data: the digit four should be a seven, and the album's prefix should not have the letter F. These errors do not appear in other Capitol documentation.) Released in mid-1949.
(b) A 10" LP, titled Songs From South Pacific (H 163 in the copies that I have seen and in many documents, although a few normally reliable sources misidentify it as H 164). Release date unknown; possibly 1950.
(c) A 45-rpm album titled Songs From Rodgers And Hammerstein's South Pacific (catalogue number Cdf 163), which contains four discs. "Bali Ha'i" can be found in a 45-rpm disc numbered 54 601. Release date unknown; probably between 1952 and 1954.

In some online sites, I have also come across listings for a 4th original issue: Ebf 162. However, I have yet to find evidence of this issue's existence, and have thus abstained from entering it in the database at present time. (If it does exist, Ebf 162 should be a 45-rpm album, just like (c) above. The hypothetical 45-rpm album would differ from (c) in its total number of discs: two in the case of Ebf 162, four in the case of Cdf 163. Both would include a total of eight numbers.

A sub-note about configurations (a) and (c). Sellers of used records oftentimes offer those 78-rpm and 45-rpm discs as separate pieces. As already explained, such discs were originally sold as components of the albums, not separately.

NOTES:
California Suite was originally issued in three configurations: as a 78-rpm set (three discs, bearing numbers from 8-28004 to 8-28007), as a 45-rpm set (four discs, with numbers from 6f-28004 to 6f-28007), and as a LP that was Capitol's first non-classical 12" vinyl. No track listing is found in any of these three original configurations: the album's contents are presented as one thirty-minute-long unit, without any divisions or song titles. (The above-shown titles first appeared when EMI released the suite in British land. Such titles were subsequently incorporated to both American and European reissues.)

Lee's participation is minimal in some of the above-listed tracks. The tracks on which she does not participate are "Mountain Desert Theme," "They Go To San Diego," "Sunday Night In San Fernando," "Prelude To 'Poor Little Extra Girl'," and "Poor Little Extra Girl."

NOTES:
[song order above is taken from a look at the 10" lp - good day -hole me - manana - nightingale - earrings -chariot - while young - why?]

The 1950 album My Best To You is a rather curious grab bag of songs from many sessions. Only two of the songs come from the same date. The eight-song batch can be logically divided, however, into two categories, or into two halves. Half of the numbers are selections that Lee turned into hits ("Why Don't You Do Right?," "It's A Good Day," "Golden Earrings," "Mañana") and the other half are superior interpretations which did not achieve the widespread popularity that they deserved ("A Nightingale Can Sing The Blues," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "Hold Me," and "While We're Young").

Given the album's title, the possibility that Peggy Lee had some degree of participation in its making cannot be discarded. However, I am more inclined to believe that Capitol Records put it together without any heavy input from the vocalist. Ultimately, the album comes off as a shortchanged attempt at condensing Lee's previous decade of recordings into a mere handful of selections.

One of my secondary sources indicates that My Best To You was also issued as a 78-rpm album with catalogue number CD-204. No such 78-rpm album is listed in Peggy Lee's session file, nor in other reliable sources. The only two configurations of which I am aware are the 10" LP (containing eight songs) and the EP set (containing six songs).

NOTES:
For general details about this album, see note under the album's 10" LP version.

According to the Capitol Jazz Discography by Michel Ruppli et al., this EP version of My Best To You excludes two numbers that can be found in the LP version: "A Nightingale Can Sing The Blues" and "While We're Young." Since I do not have a copy of the EP, nor have I ever seen one, I cannot corroborate Ruppli's assertion. (I do have the 10" LP version.) For what is worth, an online auction indeed shows this EP set as consisting of only three discs:

F 15482 - "It's A Good Day" / "Why Don't You Do Right?"
F 15483 - "Hold Me" / "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot"
F 15484 - "Mañana" / "Golden Earrings"

NOTES:
The Broadway musical Kismet premiered to popular success on December 3, 1953. The cast album was released by Columbia soon afterwards (1954). Meanwhile the other record labels rushed to release competing versions of the show's songs, as recorded by their respective rosters of artists. At Decca, Danny Kaye, Peggy Lee and The Four Aces were enlisted for this purpose.

NOTES:
The film Road To Bali starred Bing Crosby, Bob Hope, and Dorothy Lamour. All three actors also sing in the film's soundtrack, and all three seem to have been under contract with Decca Records during the early 1950s, too. Yet Lamour did not participate in this soundtrack-inspired album, put together by Decca. According to one unconfirmed report, the reason for Lamour's exclusion was her asking fee, which was deemed too high. Hence Bing Crosby and company asked Peggy Lee to record some of the numbers that Dorothy Lamour sings in the soundtrack. The recruitment of Lee for these sessions is not surprising; Crosby had a long-established professional rapport with her -- due to the numerous radio shows that they had done together -- and she has just joined his record label.

NOTES:
Only tracks featuring Peggy Lee are listed above (in other words, not the full track listing). In its heyday, this 12-track album was a treasure trove of debuting masters. Seven tracks were making their very first commercial appearance. Among them were ”That's The Way It Goes" and "Not A Care In The World": neither had been previously issued on 78 rpm, 45 rpm, or any other configuration.

It should be noted, in passing, that this album has a companion piece, titled Benny Goodman Presents Fletcher Henderson Arrangements. The two albums share the same release history, but the Fletcher Henderson item does not concern us here, because Peggy Lee is not featured in it.

Over the years, I have spent an inordinate amount of time researching Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Eddie Sauter. Concerned about various suspicious details in the data at my reach, I embarked on a search for additional information that eventually proved worthwhile, resulting as it did in numerous corrections of the originally supplied data. Below I have explained the various matters that turned out to need modification or clarification.

a) The Two LPs (Catalogue Numbers)
Some sources list the LP edition of this album as GL 523. Other sources list it as CL 523. It turns out that both listings are correct. The album was issued twice, with the same artwork and track listing but different prefixes (GL, CL) and different colors for the label of the vinyl (black in the GL version, red in the CL version):



GL 523 came out first. It was part of a Columbia series that started out with a LP numbered GL 500, and which continued using the prefix "GL" until its #524 issue. Hence, after GL 524, the succeeding issue in the series was released as CL 525. This numerical change signaled a budgetary modification: Columbia advertised the CL series as a low[er]-priced line whose catalogue would combine newly recorded albums with re-releases of older albums from the abandoned GL series.

Clearly a popular item, Goodman’s albums from the GL series were guaranteed to be reissued or re-pressed for the CL series. And so it was. We have a GL 523 and a CL 523, and we know that the latter enjoyed multiple pressings over the years. What's more, CL 523 exists in two very different-looking editions, the second using the so-called CBS eye label:



Further attesting to the album's popularity and longevity is the fact that CBS reissued it in 1975, with entirely different artwork (fourth image below; the other three images will receive commentary shortly). Then there is a Sony-licensed twofer CD (2000) on the Collectables label, combining this Sauter album with its Fletcher Henderson counterpart.

Seen immediately below are the original 1953 LP again (Gl 523; first image), two pressings of the Cl 523 reissue, and the 1975 CBS reissue (Jgl 523; last image). For and image of the twofer CD, and for other related items, check the pictorial Benny Goodman page, section XII.



b) The Two LPs (Years Of Release)
The LP Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Eddie Sauter is dated 1953 in some sources, 1955 in other sources.

Back in the late 1990s, when I started gathering data about this Columbia release, I wondered about the accuracy of the 1953 date. To me, it seemed a bit early for a 12" LP. However, I promptly learned that my misgivings were unfounded. Columbia Records had actually begun releasing 12” versions of its cast albums and popular LPs in the early 1950s, and their GL series had had its premiere release in late 1951. More recently, in the 2000s, I came upon an ad from a 1953 Billboard magazine, which corroborated that GL 523 had indeed been issued as a 12” LP in May of that year.

At the present time (2015), the 1955 dating is the one that remains a question mark for me. It may be that the date belongs to CL 523 (the reissue). Another possibility is that the sources pointing to 1955 as the year of release are referring to the British edition of the album, which was certainly issued in 1955.

c) The Two EPs (Catalogue Numbers & Years Of Release)
Through the years, my primary source for all things Goodman has been D. Russell Connor's exhaustive Benny Goodman: Listen To The Legacy. In the particular case under discussion, however, Connor's text lists the album only in its 12" LP configuration. Thanks to internet auctions and to other sources on the web, I eventually discovered the additional existence of a 45-rpm version, numbered B-356. It is a tri-gatefold album, consisting of three EPs, each with two songs per side.

There was yet another discovery, made more recently. It turns out that Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Eddie Sauter enjoyed not one but two 45-rpm editions. I first came upon hints of this situation when I located the aforementioned 1953 Billboard ad, in which the catalogue number of the EP version is listed as 419. Such was not the number that I had been seeing elsewhere (B-356).

In 2015, thanks to Goodman bio-discographer (and D. Russell Connor successor) David Jessup, I learned that the original EP version of Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Eddie Sauter was indeed a boxed set numbered G 4-19. It consisted of three EP discs (7-1501, 7-1502, and 7-1503) each containing four songs.

Obviously, original EP Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Eddie Sauter (G 4-19) and its counterpart Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Fletcher Henderson (G 4-20) belonged to a series called G 4. These two EPs broke the pattern that the series had hitherto followed: each previous item in the series comprised six 45-rpm discs. Both G 4-19 and G 4-20 consist of three EP discs instead.

The first three images below show the following components of album G 4-19: the front cover of the boxed set and both sides of the EP that contains the Peggy Lee numbers. The second row of images spotlight album B-356, showing that it is not a boxed set but a tri-gatefold album whose three EPs bear red-colored labels.




To summarize, the Columbia EP Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Eddie Sauter was released twice. The original release (G 4-19) dates from 1953, and it is a 3EP boxed set. The label of the EPs is black. The later release (B-356) is a tri-gatefold set, also consisting of three EPs, whose labels are red.

As for the release date of Columbia B-356, it remains unknown to me. As a possibility awaiting confirmation, Jessup has suggested the period leading up to the debut of the film The Benny Goodman Story (February 2, 1956), during which Columbia naturally orchestrated the re-release of various Goodman items. (The same reasoning could be applied to the also unknown release date of 12" LP CL 523.)

d) The 45-rpm Single(s)
In D. Russell Connor’s Benny Goodman: Listen To The Legacy, the two Peggy Lee songs that were included in the album Benny Goodman Presents Arrangements By Eddie Sauter ("Not A Care In The World" and "That's The Way It Goes") are listed as being issued on a 45-rpm item identified as Columbia Co #7-1502. (Two instrumentals found in the LPs and the EPs are also listed as part of Columbia Co #7-1502.

Russell Connor was probably relying on somewhat deceptive data from Columbia’s files. It turns out that this is not an isolated single: it is instead the above-shown EP from the boxed set G 4-419. (Similarly, the other two EP discs in the boxed set, 7-1500 and 7-1501 are listed as 45-rpm items in Russell Connor's opus.)

Songs In An Intimate Style was the successor to the 10" vinyl version of Black Coffee. Chosen as Songs In An Intimate Style's opening track, the hit "Baubles, Bangles And Beads" was probably the catalyst that led to the creation of this song collection. Decca must have wanted to capitalize on the commercial success of that recent hit single, and also on the critical success of Lee's previous album. The promotional note in the back cover of the Intimate LP states that "Peggy's preceding album, Black Coffee, was acclaimed by her fans and was immediately followed by demands for a new group of Peggy Lee songs. This collection is the answer to that demand."

The identity of the main individual(s) behind the conception of Songs In An Intimate Style is unclear. Considering the above-quoted promotional remark, I'm more inclined to believe that the album was conceived by a Decca producer, rather than by Lee. (Of course, Lee's input might have been taken into consideration. Perhaps the song selection was at least partially dictated by her.)

The eight songs in this album originate in sessions that were not only held months apart (November 28, 1952; February 13, 1953; September 14 and 16, 1953) but also led by three different conductors (Victor Young, Sy Oliver, Gordon Jenkins). And yet, Songs In An Intimate Style still manages to come off as a cohesive collection of beautifully sung numbers, thanks in no small measure to its uniformly romantic mood. Of the eight tracks, seven are love ballads which Peggy Lee renders with a deep sense of intimacy. The eighth number ("Apples, Peaches And Cherries") is actually a ballad, too, though in a different mold: a charming folk-style tale of romance.

The core of the album lies in the session dated September 14, 1953. (Three of the session's four masters were included, leaving out the not-so-intimate, Neapolitan-flavored "The Night Holds No Fear For The Lover.") Of the remaining five masters, two are from the next session (September 16), which was also dedicated to the recording of a holiday single. To fill the rest of Songs In An Intimate Style, Decca searched for suitably intimate ballads from Peggy Lee's back catalogue.

The 10" LP version of Songs In An Intimate Style was released on August 9, 1954. Curiously, I have also come across a 1953 release date for the album. Since I have corroborated that August 9, 1954 is the correct date for the 10" LP version, a 1953 date could be correct only if it applied to another album configuration. Before the CD era, the only other configuration in which this album came out was as an EP. I do not know the EP's release date, but I find it unlikely that Decca would have issued it a year in advance of the 10" LP. (That said, there is some room for such a possibility. There is also room for the possibility that, after all, my sources have an erroneous date for the 10" LP. Since the youngest songs in the album date from September 1953, Songs In An Intimate Style could have been hypothetically issued between October and December of that year.)

NOTES:




The release date that I have assigned to this EP is tentative. I do not know its actual date, but various details point to the mid-1950s. Presumably, the preparation of this EP was triggered by the international success of the 1954 movie Johnny Guitar; hence a 1954 date would make sense. The inclusion of two holiday numbers would further suggest a dating between October and December of that year. I do not know if the EP came only with the shown sleeve, or if it also had a photo/picture cardboard cover.

NOTES:
A four-track EP; only the one track featuring Peggy Lee is listed above. The vinyl bears no EP title. The front cover of the Australian edition lists the first song title, "Let's Dance" in boldface, thereby suggesting that this is the EP's name. I have not seen the front cover of the British edition; a secondary source gives it the title Benny Goodman Plays.

NOTES:
This joint effort by Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee fared well commercially: it peaked at #7 and spent 10 weeks in Billboard's Best-Selling Popular Albums chart. Even though both singers had other LPs of greater longevity in the album chart, during the rock era Pete Kelly's Blues was actually the highest-peaking album of their respective careers. (By rock era, I mean the chart period that begins in 1955 with "Rock Around The Clock," the smash by Billy Haley And His Comets. Before 1955, one of Lee's albums had actually peaked at #2 -- Rendezvous With Peggy Lee -- and she had also been part of another #2 item, Selections From Irving Berlin's White Christmas.)

NOTES:
In addition to the above-listed numbers by Peggy Lee, this album contains tracks by Gloria DeHaven (I Like To Do Things For You," "I See A Million People"), Joanne Gilbert ("Sweet Georgia Brown," Pat Kirby ("The Boy With The Greensleeves," "Happiness Is A Thing Called Joe"), Carmen McRae ("Come On, Come In"), and Jeri Southern ("An Occasional Man").

The cover features one of George Petty's "The Petty Girl" drawings, which were originally featured in Esquire magazine. Decca's entire "Music For The Boy Friend" series featured Petty's drawings of pinup girls. In the 12" Lp configuration, the series ran on a continuous string from Decca Dl 8309 to the album under discussion:

Did Someone Say A Party? (Decca Dl 8309; also Coral Cp 104, Ace Of Hearts 104), featuring Artie Shaw And His Orchestra.

She Does On Dreamy Music (Decca Dl 8310; Ed 2383), whose cover should be viewable here. Features Harry Hermann And His Orchestra.

She Adores The Latin Type (Decca Dl 8311), with Bebo Valdés and His Orchestra Tropicana.

She Loves The Movies (Decca Dl 8312), whose cover may still be viewable here. It features numbers by The Four Aces and by two orchestras (Alfred Newman's, Victor Young's).

He Likes To Go Dancing (Decca Dl 8313), with track by The Commandeers featuring Eddie Grady, and the orchestras of Jerry Gray and Gordon Jenkins. The front cover can be seen here.

He Really Digs Jazz! (Decca Dl 8314), viewable here. It features instrumentals by Tommy Dorsey' Clambake Seven, John Graas Ensemble, and Woody Herman with both his Woodchoppenrs and his orchestra.

He Digs Rock'n'roll (Decca Dl 8315), with Bill Haley And The Comets, The Mello-Tones, Gloria Mann, and others.

In the EP configuration, I am aware of at least one issue that I have not been able to locate as a LP:

She Loves The Matinee Type (Decca Ed 2391), featuring instrumentals by Victor Young And His Orchestra.

Some sources list The Feminine Touch as Decca Dl 5486 and give it a September 23, 1953 dating. Those sources are correct, but the album to which they are referring is not this one. It is instead a 10" LP which bears the same title as the album under discussion and whose tracks are not by female vocalists but by female pianists (Cleo Brown, Dorothy Donegan, Ann Jenkins, Hazel Scott, Mary Lou Williams).

NOTES:
Note: Its cover is entirely different cover from the US Decca original. Against a red background with a few drawings done in white, there's a head shot of Peggy at the upper left corner, a shot of Ella Fitzgerald at the bottom right corner. The other two corners are dedicated to drawings: a cornetist, pianist and drummer playing (upper right corner) and a canteen's swingings door (lower left corner) .

NOTES:
One of three EPs. Unlike this EP, the other two contain songs exclusively from the Walt Disney movie Lady And The Tramp. The last installment in the three-piece series, the present EP splits its contents between songs from the film and songs from Lee's other singles. (On another note, I should point out that I have not listened to this EP. Hence the identification of its version of "La La Lu" as the same one from the Decca single -- as opposed to the longer one from the LP -- is an educated guess.)

This exact same catalogue number (Lpbm 80756) is also given in my sources to a German Brunswick LP (The Best Of Peggy Lee) which includes all 4 songs from this EP. I assume that the information is correct for the LP, incorrect for the EP. (Perhaps the EP's number is Epbm 80756?)

NOTES:
Peggy Lee's most acclaimed LP in its expanded twelve-song edition, released three years after the original eight-song version. For comments about its genesis, see notes under Decca session dated April 30, 1953.

The exact year of release of this 12" LP is in contention. Some music sites and record guides give it a 1956 date, others a 1957 date. The existence of a November 1956 magazine review strongly points toward 1956 as the correct year. I am thus trusting the August 13, 1956 release date that I have for this LP.

NOTES:
The front cover of this Decca LP features a drawing of Peggy Lee's face and neck, with a street behind her. The drawing of Lee is clearly based on a mid-1950s photo that have also been used as a front cover, in albums such as the one viewable here.

Abroad, Dream Street was (re)issued with alternate versions of the same drawing. One alternate drawing comes from the United Kingdom, where it was used by both Brunswick (Lat 8171) and Jasmine Records (Jasm 1032). Yet a third alternate drawing was used by Festival Records (Fr 12-1475) in Australia and New Zealand. For the benefit of those who enjoy making side-by-side comparisons, I have included photos of not only the three LP cover drawings but also the publicity shots that inspired them: you can see them here, section V (aka Dream Street). As for CDs of Dream Street, all the ones of which I am aware have used the original Decca LP cover.

NOTES:
  Comments About The Earliest All-Peggy-Lee CD Issue. Issued in 1988, the compact disc version of Peggy Lee Sings With Benny Goodman was either the earliest or one of the earliest Peggy Lee CDs ever issued in the United States. Competition for the title comes from two of the singer's own albums, Close Enough For Love and Peggy Lee Sings The Blues, whose compact disc editions also came out in 1988 -- the latter in the fall. To my knowledge, all other USA Peggy Lee CDs were released no earlier than 1989. (For the earliest Peggy Lee CDs issues outside of the United States, read notes under the entry for the 1987 CDs Unforgettable, on Castle Records, and Why Don't You Do Right, on Joker Tonverlag. See also notes under the 1979 Columbia Sony issue A Portrait Of Peggy Lee, 1941-1942 and the 1987 Pigeon CD Latin!.) Some sources erroneously claim that the Goodman-Lee CD under discussion was issued even far earlier, in 1984. Not so. Most likely, that year corresponds to a LP/cassette reissue only. (As for the above-shown 1956 release date, please be aware that it applies to the original LP only, not to any CD pressings.) If music price guides are to be believed, this CD has actually enjoyed quite a few additional pressings -- 1990, 1992, 1995, etc. On a different note, it should be noted that the original Harmony LP (as well as all its derivates, including CD versions) feature faulty transfers of "Full Moon" and "That Did It, Marie": the first chorus of both vocals is missing.




 Explanatory Comments About This Discography's CD Index. [Due to an automated feature, the following notes appear in two indexes but apply only to the CD index. If you are presently consulting the LP index, please skip the ensuing paragraphs.]

In this index, all compact discs are listed chronologically by year of release. Exceptions to the chronological order involve a few entries in which the given CD has a LP version. In such cases, the release date is that of the LP, which sometimes is much earlier than the CD's date. I should also note that I am missing a release date for about 20 CDs; those undated items have been listed at the very end of the page.

This page is obviously extremely long. Readers in search of particular CDs will hopefully be aware of the existence of a handy "Find/Search" engine in their computers' browsers (generally located at the top left of the screen, under the "Edit" menu.)

Non-American CDs have been excluded from this index if they have a USA counterpart. (By "counterpart," I mean a CD that contains the exact same tracks and the same basic artwork as the American original.) I have prepared separate pages for such counterparts; consult this discography's Miscellanea section, specifically this page and this page. Because the same Miscellanea section dedicates a page to various-artists compilations, only a few noteworthy various-artists CDs will be found in the present index.

Some of the CD entries below include notes; expanded versions of most of the notes can be found in the main part of this discography -- the sessionography. One feature that is, on the other hand, exclusive to the present page is the listing of producer or production credits for recommended CDs.

The images that grace this page' first entry (Peggy Lee Sings With Benny Goodman) are provided merely for aesthetic purposes. Such is not the case, however with the other images that will be found below: all of those images signal recommended CDs, which are further highlighted by the uppercase and bold font on their titles. (In the majority of cases, above-average sound quality is among the reasons why the given CD has been recommended. In a few cases, the CD's sound is mediocre but its contents is important for Peggy Lee completists. I have specified such problematic cases within their respective entries.)

NOTES:
Curiously, Decca released at least two versions of this Decca LP, both with the same title and cover but each with different track listing. Perhaps they were part of series, in which case there could be many more. Only Dl 9056 includes Lee's "Ring Those Christmas Bells"; the other version (Dl 38170) does not feature Lee at all. Covers, full track details and bloggers' discussion about Dl 9056 and Dl 38170 should be accessible here, here, and here.

NOTES:
This long play entered Billboard's Best-Selling Pop LPs chart during the week of July 14, 1958, and peaked at #15.

Curiously, some of the sources at my reach give a very late date to Jump For Joy: March 16, 1959. A July 1958 magazine review proves that the album was out the previous year. (So does, too, a second review, this one from a British magazine, published in September 1958. And a Capitol Record Club ad in the September 8, 1958 issue of Life magazine.) Hence the 1959 dating in the aforementioned sources is not accurate. (A similar situation applies to Things Are Swingin', the follow-up to Jump For Joy.)

While not accurate as the original release of the (mono) album, the 1959 date could still be valid if the stereo version of the LP was, perchance, released later. I do not know if such was the case. Granted that it would be a long stretch between the release of the mono and stereo versions (close to a year), this possibility is by no means far-fetched. it is worth taking into account that, during the late 1950s, Capitol was still in the experimental stages of its reproduction of stereophonic sound. Such a situation could account for any decisions to belatedly issue this or other albums in the new format. In fact, I do know of one contemporaneous Capitol LP whose mono and stereo versions were released years apart: Frank Sinatra's Where Are You? (mono release: September 1957; stereo release: February 1959).

NOTES:
Only the third EP from the Festival label; the first and second had been dedicated to Australian acts. The cover shows a drawing of Peggy Lee in the act of singing, and wearing a purple dress, with a long pearl necklace around her neck. The greenish background shows wood and shrubs. The model for the drawing of Lee is obviously a still from the movie Peter Kelly's Blues.

NOTES:
This long play entered Billboard's Best-Selling Pop LPs chart during the week of December 9, 1958 and ended up peaking at #16.

Many sources wrongly list this LP as coming out in 1959 -- specifically, May 1959. Judging from its catalogue number, the LP must have been released around September 1958. There is also a magazine review published in February 1959 -- that is, three months before the alleged release date.

The 1959 claim may be an error that originated in one source and was then copied to other sources. Alternatively, it could be that the stereo version of the LP was released much later than the mono version; see related discussion about Jump For Joy, the Peggy Lee album which was released right before this one.

A note about track listing and indexing. This album has 12 tracks. I have separately indexed one track, "You're Mine, You." The reason for the separation is that, unlike the other 11 tracks, "You're Mine, You" exists in two different takes, one included in the mono version of the original album, the other in the stereo version.

NOTES:
Curiously, the LP I Like Men!, released in February 1959, did not make the charts. And yet, as shown by a Billboard magazine ad, I Like Men! did get some promotion from Capitol. But maybe the method of promotion was too "by-the-numbers" to be effective: the ad reads "Brand new music! (Capitol brand, by Nat 'King' Cole, Judy Garland, Jonah Jones & Others)." Nine albums, all of them naturally brand new, were being promoted; the first three shown are the ones by Cole, Garland, and Jones. The so-called others, in order of appearance, are The George Shearing Quintet, Peggy Lee, Les Baxter, Freddy Martin, The Frank Moore Four, and Guy Lombardo.

The album might have also gotten lost in the shuffle and the fanfare that permeated Capitol during the first half of the year. To wit: the aforementioned stereo EPs were released in April, then there was the much publicized Miami disc jockey convention in May, and subsequently the release of the Lee-Shearing album from that convention.

A note about track listing and indexing. This album has 12 tracks. I have separately indexed the tracks "I'm Just Wild About Harry," "Bill," and "Jim." The reason for the separation is that, unlike the other 9 tracks, those three exist in two different takes, one included in the mono version of the original album, the other in the stereo version.

NOTES:
On April 13, 1959, Capitol proudly released its first batch of stereo EPs. The four artists whose EPs Capitol chose for this treatment were Frank Sinatra, Nat King Cole, Ray Anthony, and the only female in the bunch, Peggy Lee. (As for stereo LPs, Capitol released its first batch in October 1958 -- 13 albums, all of them instrumentals.) Lee's stereo EP contained four songs that she had recorded the previous year. Three of them were hits: "Fever," "Alright, Ok, You Win," "My Man". That third song, "My Man" was actually a cut from the LP I Like Men!, and so so was the fourth song in the EP: Lee's self-penned "I Like Men!". As suggested by the comments just made, this EP was the earliest all-Peggy Lee issue to feature "Fever" in stereophonic sound. (A various-artists compilation, More Stars In Stereo had previously issued the same stereo version.)

NOTES:
Limited to a 2,500 pressing, this item was sent to disc jockeys who pre-signed for a copy while at the Miami convention. It is actually a gatefold LP box, all-black (front, back). The front cover is completely blank, except for the album's title, in white letters. When opened, the inner sides of the box reveal themselves to be the front and back covers of the regular, commercially released Capitol LP. Also found inside, along with the vinyl, are two photos and two typewritten letters. One photo is of Peggy Lee, who has signed it with the comment "let's cut another one soon," followed by the words "Love, Peggy." The other is a photo of George Shearing, with another inscription by Peggy Lee herself ("couldn't have done it without you, George"). One of the handwritten letters is from Capitol Records, individual unknown; the other is signed by Lee on behalf of both her and Shearing. The two letters apologize to the convention's attendants for the sonic problems that preventing many of them from hearing the concert.

NOTES:
This album is a studio recreation of a live concert that could not be released due to technical difficulties at the performing venue. The concert tapes exist, but their atrocious sound quality make them unusable. (There is at least one exception, however. Just one single song, from the live concert. It has been issued, and it sports very good sound quality.) Full details about the concert and about its difficulties can be found in the Capitol sessions dated May 1959.

The album entered Billboard's Best-Selling Pop LPs chart on the week of September 12, 1959, and peaked at #19. It spent 18 weeks in that chart.

The reel configuration seems to have been released in the United Kingdom, in mono. I have yet to find confirmation of a stereo counterpart, or an American version. (Lack of confirmation should not be taken to imply that an American and/or stereo version does not exist. The official Capitol sources that I consulted lack any data whatsoever about reels. Details about reels are not easy to come by.)

NOTES:
Thanks to the involvement of the same conductor and to the use of similar instrumentation in all tracks, this album comes off as a cohesive piece. Surprisingly, it is actually an anthology, culled from two singles sessions that took place six months apart from one another. Miss Wonderful was released three years after the original singles came out, and also three years after Peggy Lee had left Decca. (Could it be that these sessions were originally scheduled with the album in mind, yet Decca ultimately decided to issue the resulting masters on singles, perhaps due to Lee's plan to leave the label?)

NOTES:
This long play peaked at #11 in Billboard's Best-Selling Pop LPs chart. After making its debut during the week of April 11, 1960, it went on to become Lee's longest-lasting album in that chart: 59 weeks.

A year later, on April 12, 1961, the third Grammy award ceremony was held. In the category of Best Vocal Performance, Album, Female, Ella Fitzgerald and Peggy Lee were repeat nominees for the third straight year. (This particular year, Peggy Lee's work actually received 4 Grammy nominations.)

Latin Ala Lee! received a nomination for Best Album Cover. Lee had suggested the basic concept for the cover to Capitol's art department, where it was developed in full by art director Marvin Schwartz. He was the year's winner in this category.

NOTES:
This jukebox EP consists of five discs and contains 10 of the 12 tracks found in its LP counterpart, leaving out just the selections "Heart" and "C'est Magnifique." As far as I have been able to ascertain, Latin Ala Lee is Peggy Lee's earliest album to be issued on jukebox EP. The above-given release date should be deemed tentative, however; my source could have taken the release date of the LP and collectively assign it to all other format or counterparts, including this EP.

Though they were the same size as 45 rpm singles, jukebox EPs bore a strong connection to LPs. They ran at 33 revolutions per minute, just like LPs. Also, their spindle hole was of the same size as the hole on LPs -- as opposed to the large-sized holes of 45-rpm discs.

So far, I have come across data stating the existence of four Peggy Lee jukebox EPs, including this one. The three others are Olé A La Lee!, Blues Cross Country, and Basin Street Proudly Presents Miss Peggy Lee. All of them are listed in this page and pictured in the Capitol pictorial page, except for Basin Street Proudly Presents Miss Peggy Lee, whose existence has yet to be fully verified. (My only source for its existence is a music guide.) One additional item meriting inclusion is Capitol Ma1-1591, a 1961 release that differed from the other 33-rpm jukebox EPs by the fact that it was a compilation, and by featuring two songs instead of one per side. It belonged to a sub-series suitably called "33 Compact Double."

In addition to the above-mentioned jukebox EPs, there are also eight Peggy Lee jukebox items that fall under the EP sub-category known as little LP. Those too are listed in this page, beginning with Christmas Carousel -- tentatively dated 1960. (The others: Sugar 'n' Spice, I'm A Woman, In Love Again, Pass Me By, Then Was Then, Big $pender, Guitars Ala Lee. Also meriting inclusion is Peggy Lee's Greatest!, with catalogue number Su-377. A duophonic compilation, it otherwise follows all the requirements to qualify as a little LP.)

NOTES:
Despite appearances to the contrary, All Aglow Again! is actually an anthology, not an album of newly recorded masters. It combines hit singles with then-previously unissued numbers, the latter recorded way back in 1952 -- during Lee's last Capitol session before her four-year sojourn at Decca. More specifically:

a) 7 numbers drawn from hit singles released during the two years that preceded the album, including her most popular, iconic hit of the 1950s, "Fever."

b) 4 numbers that had never been previously issued, all of them from a 1952 session. That session had actually been Lee's the last that she had recorded for Capitol, before moving to Decca Records. (She stayed at Decca for the next few years, but returned to Capitol in 1957.)

c) Lee's most popular hit single of the 1940s, "Mañana," a 1948 million seller.

Notwithstanding erroneous information found in some record guides, Capitol LP #366 was issued in mono only: there is no stereo version of this LP. It was in fact one of the 15 monaural albums that kicked off Capitol’s “Starline” LP series, dedicated to reissuing singles by famous pop artists on 12” vinyl compilations.

NOTES:
Though they have the same size and look as 45-rpm singles, jukebox EPs such as this one ran at 33 revolutions per minute. Another difference: jukebox EPs have spindle holes that are of the same size as LPs (and, thus, not the size of 45-rpm discs). Still further, stereo was the only configuration used for jukebox EPs -- per the desire of Seeburg and the other companies in whose jukebox machines these items were played.

This particular jukebox EP belongs to the sub-category known as little LP, which is distinguished from the main category by the number of discs (just one) and the number of tracks (six, or half the amount in its 12" counterpart). In contrast, Capitol's jukebox EPs consist of five discs, each featuring one track per side, for a total of ten tracks.

Most of Capitol's little LPs date from the post-1961 period; I've come across a few, from a compilation series, which date from 1961. And yet Christmas Carousel is dated 1960 above. That release date (the one I found in an old music guide) might or might not be correct; it should be deemed very tentative.

The worthwhile discographical site Both Sides Now actually gives a 1963 date to this little LP. I find that release date far more plausible. Unfortunately, the degree to which this piece of information can be trusted is diminished by a glaring error in that website's dating of the 12" LP version of this album: Both Sides Now incorrectly lists the 12" vinyl as released in 1962 (The LP is listed in two pages of the site. The other page correctly dates it 1960.)

NOTES:
This release has a complicated issue history. The mono version originally came out in 1960 as a Dxb 164, a gatefold album (or, in Decca's own wording, a "deluxe 2-pocket LP).

The stereo version came out either in 1960 or 1966, with catalogue number Dxsb 7 164. This is a fake stereo (or, as worded by Decca, "enhanced for stereo") release. The cover differs from the earlier one in the addition of an horizontal blue stripe at the top.

A MCA version numbered 2 4049 was released in 1980, according to some sources. (One source dates it July 1987. I am more inclined to believe that all those sources are mistaken, and that this edition dates from 1966.)

I am aware of a fourth American edition of this album, I do not have a physical copy of that version, and I have seen it only twice or thrice at used record stores. Its most distinctive trait is that it is not a gatefold album. Instead, the two LPs are included inside the same jacket, a regular "one-fold" cover. Moreover, this version skips the inner contents of the gatefold cover (i.e., Leonard Feather's extensive liner notes and the 6 color photos of Lee in performance). Overall, it comes off as a budget production, and I suspect it to be the edition whose correct date is 1980 or 1987.

In the United Kingdom, the album''s history is even more complicated. In 1961, British MCA split the album into two volumes, and released it as such, with catalogue numbers 8355 (volume 1) and 8356 (volume 2). Those British volumes differ from the American album is various other aspects. For starters, they are abbreviated: together, they contain 20 of the 24 songs in the American original. Then there is the fact that the track listing is similar but not identical: of the 20 songs, 4 are not found in the American original.

I have found no indication that The Best Of Peggy Lee was ever issued as one single album in the United Kingdom. Conversely, I cannot find evidence that the album was ever split into two volumes in the United States, although I am under the impression of having seen volumes 1 and 2 in American used record stores, long ago. (However, perhaps the copies that I saw were British pressings.)

In 1970, MCA's British branch Coral reissued the American album in both mono and fake stereo, too. Splitting it again into two volumes, Coral issued it with catalogue numbers Cp/Cps 25 (volume 1) and Cp/Cps 37 (volume 2). Next, in 1974, Coral reissued the volumes yet again, as Crl 1074 and Crl 1084. Those Coral versions are not abbreviated, and they contain the exact same songs found in the American original (none of the ones added to the earlier British issues).

To further complicate matters, in 1981 British MCA issued a 16-track album entitled The Best Of Peggy Lee (Mcl 1632) which is a partial reissue of Dxb 164, with the four tracks from the British volumes added for good measure, and one new track too. The cover features the same photo as the earlier volumes, but it is in b&w and is surrounded by an entirely different, all blue framing. In 1985, Mcl 1632 was reissued with the same title and the same tracks but with a different cover, and as part of a different series ("Golden Greats," Mcm 5010).

NOTES:
An abbreviated reissue of the 1960 American Decca 2LP set The Best Of Peggy Lee (Dxb 164). Contains 10 of the 12 songs included in the first of the two LPs. Substituting for "Ooh, That Kiss" and "How Bitter, My Sweet" are "He's A Tramp" and "I've Got You Under My Skin." Same album cover. (Also using the same cover and splitting it into two volumes, MCA's branch Coral released the full, non-abbreviated version of the American 2LP set within such two volumes. In other words, the Coral issue, Volume 1, does include "Ooh, That Kiss" and "How Bitter, My Sweet" but not "He's A Tramp" and "I've Got You Under My Skin." MCA's Coral was a British label. It released the two volumes in 1970, and reissued them in 1974.)

NOTES:
An abbreviated reissue of the 1960 American Decca 2LP set The Best Of Peggy Lee (Dxb 164). Contains 10 of the 12 songs included in the first of the two LPs. Substituting for "It's All Right With Me" and "I Never Knew" are "I Didn't Know What Time It Was" and "Just One Of Those Things." (Also using the same cover and splitting it into two volumes, MCA's branch Coral released the full, non-abbreviated version of the American 2LP set within those two volumes. MCA's Coral was a British label. It released the volumes in 1970, and reissued them in 1974.)

NOTES:
This Capitol issue was released on March 15, 1961. In the liner notes for the LP, Basin Street East proprietor Ralph Watkins writes that, "[t]hanks to the fine engineers and to producer Dave Cavanaugh, who captured one of the most exciting performances we have ever heard, the thousands who thrilled to Miss Lee in person will treasure this album."

Although not necessarily through any fault of his own, Watkins' comment happens to be partially misleading. The album does not contain just "one exciting performance." Instead, it combines numbers taken from all of the above-mentioned live tapings, and also from studio ('overdub') dates. In what was a widespread practice across record labels operating at the time, Cavanaugh edited the album as if it contained one night's live performance. [Fortunately, one true and complete live performance from February 8 has been released, too: Peggy At Basin Street East, issued by Collectors' Choice in 2002.]

This long play entered Billboard's Best-Selling Pop LPs chart on the week of September 11, 1961 and thereby became Peggy Lee's 9th album entry. It peaked at #77 and spent 22 weeks in the chart. The album also elicited Lee's fourth consecutive Grammy nomination in the Best Solo Vocal, Female category.

In the album, each medley is counted as one track. In this discography, I have separately counted the songs from the album's medleys. Also, the album includes two tracks called "Peggy Lee Bow Music" that I have not incorporated to this discography's database because they are instrumentals.

NOTES:
This jukebox EP is believed to Include all the songs found in its 12" LP counterpart, except for two of them. Unfortunately, I have never seen this item (information of its existence comes from a music guide). I do not know which two songs were omitted from it, nor do I have a full track listing.

Though they have the same size and look as 45-rpm singles, jukebox EPs such as this one ran at 33 revolutions per minute. Furthermore, the spindle hole of jukebox EP discs is not of the same size as the corresponding hole in 45-rpm singles. Instead, the size is the same as in LPs.

NOTES:
A jukebox EP, this item runs at 33 (not 45) revolutions per minute. Capitol manufactured 18 of these monaural 33-rpm EPs, each containing two tracks per side. The acts who enjoyed their own issues in this compilation series were Ray Anthony, Les Baxter, Nat King Cole, Tennessee Ernie Ford, Les Paul With Mary Ford, Stan Freeberg, Andy Griffin, The Hollywood Bowl Orchestra, Stan Kenton, The Kingston Trio, Guy Lombardo And The Royal Canadians, Dean Martin, Louis Prima With Keely Smith, Frank Sinatra, Hank Thompson, and The Roger Wagner Chorale. The only solo female artists to have their own volumes in the series were Peggy Lee and Kay Starr.

The 33 compact double format did not prove a success, and Capitol promptly discontinued it. But 33-rpm jukebox EPs continued to be released at Capitol and elsewhere as what came to be known as little LPs. There are eight of those in Lee's discography, Sugar n' Spice (Sxa-1772) being one of the first (1962).

NOTES:
The release year that my original sources give for this EP is 1964. However, its catalogue number suggests an earlier date. Furthermore, a conceptual similarity between this British EP and the mid-1962 American LP Bewitching-Lee! has long led me to wonder if the former could also date from the same year. Both issues are 1960s compilations of material that dates back to the 1940s, one dedicated to hits and the other to so-called favourites. More recently, I came upon a vendor's listing in which the EP's date was given as 1961. After checking other listings by this vendor, and corroborating that they were correctly dated, I feel that his dating for the EP could actually be correct, and I have tentatively adopted it.

NOTES:
This jukebox EP Includes all the songs found in the LP counterpart of Blues Cross Country, except for "Fisherman's Wharf" and "The Train Blues."

Though they have the same size and look as 45-rpm singles, jukebox EPs such as this one ran at 33 revolutions per minute. Another difference: jukebox EPs have spindle holes that are of the same size as LPs (and, thus, not the size of 45-rpm discs).

NOTES:
From "I Don't Know Enough About You" (recorded on December 26, 1945) to this date's "Hallelujah, I Love Him So", the twelve songs in the hits compilation Bewitching-Lee! spanned more than two decades. Released in July 1962, the album entered Billboard's album chart during the week of August 5, 1962, spent six weeks in that chart, and peaked at #85. Chronologically, it became the singer's 10th album entry (following the 1961 LP Basin Street East Proudly Presents Miss Peggy Lee) to enter the chart.

NOTES:
Though they look like 45-rpm singles, jukebox EPs such as this one ran at 33 revolutions per minute. Another difference: jukebox EPs have spindle holes that are of the same size as LPs (and, thus, not the size of 45-rpm discs). Stereo was the only configuration used for them -- per the request of Seeburg and the other companies in whose jukebox machines these items were heard.

The present item, a "little LP" is actually a sub-category of jukebox EPs. They contain half the number of tracks on their LP counterparts (and four tracks less than the main category of jukebox EPs).

Sugar 'n' Spice (Sxa 1772) might be the earliest Peggy Lee little LP to be released. I should clarify why two other items do not (might not) qualify for the position of Lee's first little LP:

1) Blues Cross Country (cat. no. Xe-1671). The jukebox EP that preceded Sugar 'n' Spice contains ten instead of six tracks, and is thus not to be labeled a little LP.

2) Christmas Carousel (cat. no Sxa -1423). This jukebox EP has a total of six tracks, and is a "little LP." Furthermore, the 12" LP version of Christmas Carousel was released two years before both the LP and little LP versions of Sugar 'n' Spice. However, I have not been able to find the release date of the Christmas Carousel little LP anywhere except in a couple of sources that are not fully reliable. (One dates it 1960, the other 1963. Further details are given in thus page, under the notes for Sxa-1423, which I momentarily dated 1960 out of necessity. I harbor a suspicion that it was released in the mid-1960s.)

Dave Barbour (g), Jess Bourgeouis (b), Sid Hurwitz (p), Alvin Stoller (d), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:
Released in coordination with the British branch of the French label Pathé.

The date is tentative. Its basis is a December 15 1962 Billboard issue in which Camay 3001 and Camay 3002 are advertised. It would thus be reasonably to infer that Camay 3003 was also issued very late in 1962 or otherwise early in 1963.

Camay re-released this album twice, and the dates for those reissues (1964, 1965) are also tentative. (The third issue shortened the LP's title to Peggy Lee.)

NOTES:
Peggy Lee's 12th album chart entry peaked at #18. After making its debut during the week of March 9, 1963, it spent 26 weeks in the chart. This album also gave Lee her six consecutive Grammy nomination in the category of Best Vocal Performance, Female.

The formats in which I'm A Woman was originally issued in the United States were LP (catalogue number T 1857 for mono, St 1857 for stereo) and jukebox EP (Sxa 1857). In 1977, the album was reissued on LP (catalogue number Sm 387). Also issued was an 8-track cartridge (M 1857), whose release date is unclear to me. Most likely, the date is 1977, but I lack confirmation on the matter. In any case, the 8-track cartridge was not one of the original (1963) issue formats.

NOTES:
A so-called little LP, this jukebox EP was released in stereo only and contains a total of six tracks, out of which I have been able to list just one. I would appreciate being told the titles of the other five songs that were included in this item.

Jukebox EPs have the same size and look as 45-rpm singles, but they ran at 33 revolutions per minute. Another difference from 45-rpm discs: jukebox EPs have spindle holes that are of the same size as LPs. Still further, stereo was the only configuration used for jukebox EPs -- per the wishes of Seeburg and the other companies in whose jukebox machines these items were played.

NOTES:
Though similar to 45-rpm singles in size and general look, jukebox EPs differ from them by running at 33 revolutions per minute. Another difference: jukebox EPs have spindle holes that are of the same size as LPs -- not the size of 45-rpm discs. Still further, stereo was the only configuration used for jukebox EPs -- per the request of Seeburg and the other companies in whose jukebox machines these items were played. The little LP, the particular sub-category of jukebox EP to which the item under discussion belonged, consisted of one disc with three songs per side (at Capitol, at least).

NOTES:
This album was issued by Decca in 1964, eight years after Peggy Lee had left the label. It collects numbers that had been previously released on singles, but which had not yet made it to LP. The exceptions are "Do I Love You?" (previously unissued) and "The Tavern" (originally released in the 10" LP Songs In An intimate Style). The Fabulous Peggy Lee was released both in mono and in "hi-fi stereophonic," which was Decca's name for its brand of simulated stereo.

NOTES:
Peggy Lee's 14th album chart entry spent six weeks in the chart and peaked at #97.

The 1974 version of this album describes itself as "Sy-4618, a special reissue ... a collector's item" and its series as "special collections of classic hit recordings by the brightest stars." False advertisement. It's actually a budget-looking release. Whereas its front cover is the same as in the original issue, the back cover is almost blank, missing the artwork and most of the the original's contents (liner notes, personnel details, list of previous albums). It includes just the track listing, the above-quoted description, its catalogue number and the basic copyright identification of the record company.

NOTES:
Prepared for release long after Lee had left the label, Lover is not an original album, but neither is it a thoughtlessly assembled compilation. Almost none of its twelve numbers had appeared on 12" vinyl before 1964. (Most had come out on singles, a few on EP or on 10" LP.)

Lending cohesiveness to this record company project is the participation of conductor-arranger Gordon Jenkins on all chosen tracks. The tracks come from five sessions that had taken place within a one-year span: April 23, April 28/May 1, July 31, November 28, and December 16, 1952.

Lover was released in both mono and "hi-fi stereophonic" sound. The latter was Decca's name for its brand of simulated stereo.

The total number of tracks is 13. (As above, the medley of "Peace On Earth" and "Silent Night" is counted as one track.)

NOTES:
Though similar to 45-rpm singles in size and general look, jukebox EPs differ from them by running at 33 revolutions per minute. Another difference: jukebox EPs have spindle holes that are of the same size as LPs -- not the size of 45-rpm discs. Still further, stereo was the only configuration used for jukebox EPs -- per the request of Seeburg and the other companies in whose jukebox machines these items were played. The little LP, the particular sub-category of jukebox EP to which the item under discussion belonged, consisted of one disc with three songs per side (at Capitol, at least).

NOTES:
Curiously, Joel Whitburn shows this album as entering Billboard's album chart on December 30, 1967, which is over two years after its original release. The fact that it is a seasonal release could account for its late entry in the chart; perhaps it went unnoticed during earlier holiday seasons. Happy Holiday peaked at #115 and became Peggy Lee's 17th album chart entry. (Her 16th entry was the album Big Spender, which was released in April 1966.)

NOTES:
This LP omits one of the numbers ("Moments Like This") from the original version of the album, substituting it with an incongruously older bonus track (" 'Deed I Do"). Oddly, the substitution is made only in the LP, not in the reel configuration, where "Moments Like This" was kept

NOTES:
Though similar to 45-rpm singles in size and general look, jukebox EPs differ from them by running at 33 revolutions per minute. Another difference: jukebox EPs have spindle holes that are of the same size as LPs -- not the size of 45-rpm discs. Still further, stereo was the only configuration used for jukebox EPs -- per the request of Seeburg and the other companies in whose jukebox machines these items were played. The little LP, the particular sub-category of jukebox EP to which the item under discussion belonged, consisted of one disc with three songs per side (at Capitol, at least).

NOTES:
A clarification about track listing and indexing. This album has 12 tracks. I have separately indexed the track "Good Times." The reason for the separation is that, unlike the other 11 tracks, "Good Times" exists in two different takes, one included in the mono version of the original album, the other in the stereo version.

NOTES:
Released in 1967 and posing as an original album, the LP Extra Special! actually picked up songs that had been recorded earlier in the decade. As shown above, there are songs from each preceding year, except for 1964. All Extra Special! numbers had originally come out on singles, except for three that had never been issued before 1967, but which also stemmed from singles sessions: "The Shining Sea," "Oh! You Crazy Moon," and "Call Me Darling, Call Me Sweetheart, Call Me Dear."

NOTES:
I have not listened to the item under discussion. All four Peggy Lee tracks played by Willis Conover during this radio show are presumed to be the above-listed Capitol studio recordings (as opposed to new versions, sung for radio), but confirmation on this assumption is needed. Only one side of the vinyl features Peggy Lee. Three different artists are heard on the LP's other side (numbered GXTV 220590, and containing programs no. 53 A, B, C): The Cyrkle, The Tradewinds, and Jack Jones. It thus appears that a full half an hour show was dedicated to Lee (23:59, according to the vinyl's timing), whereas the other acts were featured in small segments (4:50). Although record dealers own and sell this LP separately these days, it is actually the first of a five-record set, whose radio shows run numerically from 53 to 57. My thanks to Reginald Bartlett for his very kind offer of pertinent information during the labor of researching this item.

NOTES:
At Capitol during the 1960s, Peggy Lee usually released a minimum of two albums per year. The years 1967 and 1968 were exceptions. In 1968, one of the two albums (Two Shows Nightly) was left unreleased at the request of the singer herself, and the other one actually was not an original piece, but this hits package.

One of the tracks ("Mañana") is heard in electronically processed stereo.

According to the Capitol Label Discography, there is a 1969 re-pressing of The Hits Of Peggy Lee that misses one of the tracks from the 1968 original: "I'll Only Miss Him When I Think Of Him."

NOTES:
As I have indicated in the note next to the title, this album is the British edition of the 1968 American package The Hits Of Peggy Lee. Whereas the American album has 11 tracks, this British edition includes 5 more. The probable rationale behind the bonus tracks was that, in Great Britain, Lee was identified with those numbers.

During the LP era, The Best Of Peggy Lee may have been the most internationally disseminated hits package by Lee. This discography lists two other versions, one from Czechoslovakia (1988) and the other from Israel (date unknown). I do not doubt that there were others of which I am not yet aware. There was also a British reissue in 1983 in EMI's Music For Pleasure imprint, with the same title and no track alterations, but a slightly different cover and a different catalogue number (21141).

NOTES:
Given the fact that #2 above exists both as a LP and as an 8-track cartridge, it is very possible that there is an 8-track edition of this album, too. I have not yet found corroboration for such a possibility, however. Notice also that this album has the same tracks as an LP entitled Peggy Lee ("Archives of Folk & Jazz Music" Series), released by Everest, catalogue number 294, and listed in this photo gallery's page for Capitol compilations.)

NOTES:
The first edition of Peggy Lee's autobiography includes a list of her singles and albums, compiled by Wayne Rankin. On the subject matter of Two Shows Nightly, Rankin indicates that it was recorded "live at the Copacabana, 1967." He further adds the following comment: "LP release was withdrawn by Miss Lee immediately after initial pressings, as the artist felt that sound reproduction was inconsistent with her usual high standards. Fewer than ten copies have been traced as in existence in private collections in the USA." Rankin gives valuable information in that quote and elsewhere, but it must be clarified that the recording date he assigned to Two Shows Nightly is erroneous. It should be 1968 instead of 1967.

Back in 1989, when Lee's autobiography was first published, Rankin knew of less than ten extant copies of this album. Nowadays, when we are well into the era of computerized access to information, there is awareness of many more extant copies. In the last ten years, I have come across over 15 copies, some of them sighted in US record stores and others in the internet, up for auction. I have also heard from 7 or 8 collectors, three of whom owned multiple album copies. In any case, chances are that the number of initially pressed copies was a pre-determined, standard amount -- certainly a number much higher than 10 or 15. (Incidentally, Rankin uses the plural when he makes his reference to "initial pressings" but I am more inclined to believe that there was no more than one pressing in the US.)

Capitol clearly had every intention to release Two Shows Nightly. A sure indication of the company's intent was the advance promotion that it did for the LP. Two of the album's tracks were included in The Capitol Disc Jockey Album: November 1968, which was a promotional LP sampler. Those samplers were sent to radio stations shortly before the 'street date' release of a new batch of albums. The record label had also assigned a precise release date to the album: November 4, 1968.

After that bit of advance promotion, Capitol's course of action is less clear. Was Two Shows Nightly actually sent to commercial stores, and then promptly recalled, or were no copies ever released commercially? I have found no evidence to back up the suggestion that the album arrived at stores in 1968. On the contrary, all U.S. copies known to me tellingly have the word "FREE" punched into the front cover's upper right corner. Such copies were usually promotional items sent out to music critics, disc jockeys and radio stations. I have also heard that additional copies (remainders) were eventually given, free of charge, to charity organizations such as Goodwill and the Salvation Army, but I do not know if such hearsay is based on fact or on speculation.

Years after its aborted release, the album was definitely being sold at one specific commercial store. I know of two record collectors who bought various copies therein. According to one of them: "in the mid-70s, the Olssen's record chain in DC was selling off (for 99 cents) a consignment of Capitol records, with free punched into the upper right corners. There were 5 or 6 copies of Two Shows Nightly, which mystified me since I'd never heard of the album and I was a big Peggy fan."

Over the years, many of those "free" copies have ended up in the hands of vendors, who have sold them at high, collectors-only prices. (One copy was once auctioned, through Goldmine magazine, for $1,500. Relatively more reasonable prices, ranging from $100 to $300, tend to be the norm.)

Lee's request to have the LP withdrawn was carried out in the United States, but not honored abroad. Copies manufactured in Australia (or New Zealand) are identical to those pressed in the United States, but do not carry the "free" sign. Copies from Japan are pressed in red vinyl, which was typical of Japanese LPs from the 1960s. Given the scarcity of such foreign copies, they too might have been limited to just one small pressing.

NOTES:
The front cover of some Capitol jukebox EPs list all 10 or 12 tracks found in their LP counterparts, despite actually including six of the tracks. This EP is a case in point. It indeed has six of the LP's ten tracks. Like all other jukebox EPs made by Capitol Records, it runs at ee (not 45) revolutions per minute.

The 1969 date that I have entered above should be considered tentative. Taken from a music guide, it could certainly be incorrect. My primary sources have no dating details about this release. The discographical website Both Sides Now actually gives it a May 1971 date, but I would like further corroboration on this or any other proposals.

NOTES:
This set is an abbreviated reissue of the LPs Big Spender, A Natural Woman, and I'm A Woman. As can be seen above, 10 tracks were chosen from each of the albums, whose original versions contain 11 or 12 titles each. Peggy Lee was one of various acts whose earlier Capitol albums received a boxed, abridged 3-LP treatment in 1970. Others were The Lettermen, Guy Lombardo (Stcl 578), Al Martino (Stcl 572), Wayne Newton, and Buck Owens. There is also one item in the series (Stcl 575) that combines numbers from three different, though professionally related acts (Stan Kenton, June Christy, and The Four Freshmen).

NOTES:
This is a reissue of the 1960 album Latin Ala Lee!. Two songs from the original album were deleted. The original artwork was changed, too. Broadway Ala Lee was sold both as a stand-alone (catalogue number Sf 519) and as a twofer (catalogue number Sttb 517). The other album from the twofer is also a reissue, entitled The Folks Who Live On The Hill and presented in "duophonic" or electronically processed stereo (catalogue number Df 518).

Incidentally, the prefix of Broadway Ala Lee truly is Sf, not Df as some sources erroneously claim. As for Stbb, that prefix identifies all Capitol reissues in this twofer LP series.

NOTES:
Electronically processed stereo is heard in this 1970 Capitol album, which is an abridged reissue of The Man I Love. Two songs from the original LP were deleted, and the original artwork was also changed.

The Folks Who Live On The Hill can be found both as a stand-alone and as part of a double LP set. The catalogue number of the stand-alone is Df 518. The prefix's letter D refers to the so-called Duophonic process, which was Capitol's name for its own brand of mimicked stereo.

The catalogue number of the 2LP set is Sttb 517. This so-called set consists of just the two albums and the small adhesive sticker that precariously holds them together. Approximately 3" by 1", the sticker is placed around the albums' spines.

(As for the other LP in this 2LP set, Broadway Ala Lee is an abridged reissue of Latin Ala Lee!, another Peggy Lee original album. See notes under session dated August 13, 1959.)

NOTES:
Make It With You was Peggy Lee's 20th album to enter Billboard's album chart. Its debut took place during the week of December 19, 1970. Spending just 2 weeks in the chart's top 200, it peaked at #194.

While she was alive, Make It With You was Peggy Lee's last album to make Billboard's album chart. During the weeks that followed Lee's passing, some of her albums reached high positions in Amazon's sale listings, but there were no signs of them in the Billboard charts that I consulted. Then, almost a decade after having passed away, Lee had a comeback album of sorts: during the week of May 8, 2010, a Peggy Lee compilation released by Starbucks, made its debut on Billboard's Top 200 Albums chart, where it peaked at #51. In the Jazz Albums chart, it went to #2. Come Rain Or Come Shine thus qualifies as Lee's 21th album chart entry, and to date, her last one.

Notice also that, while the albums that Lee recorded after Make It With You did not chart, some of them earned other distinctions, such as Grammy nominations and, in one case (Mirrors), cult status.

NOTES:
Capitol Creative Products put together the compilation Raindrops on behalf of Abbott Laboratories, a company that produced the sleeping drug Placidyl, which is advertised in the back cover. At Columbia Records, a Louis Armstrong special products album was also made on behalf of Abbott Laboratories and Placidyl. Most likely marketed as complimentary gifts, the recipients of those Armstrong and Lee albums were probably Placidyl customers.

Capitol and its branches released this Peggy Lee compilation twice. The two versions differ in some details, such as the artwork and the way that the label (on the vinyl) looks. Other details, including the album's title, track sequence, and catalogue number are identical.

In the version released by Capitol Special Markets, the label on the vinyl is yellow. The front cover recycles the photo used for the earlier LP A Natural Woman. The back cover features the track listing along with a very simple drawing of a flower, in black and white. There are no liner notes.

The original version of the album was issued by Capitol Creative Products. The photo in the front cover is a close shot of various branches, wet with rain, against a dark yellow background. This photo was taken at Mount of Olives, Jerusalem. As for the vinyl itself, it has a black label surrounded by a pink ring. Included in the back of the jacket is a face shot of Lee. That Lee shot is actually a small version of the photo that adorns the front cover of the album Make It With You. Also in the back of the Raindrops jacket: the track listing and brief but appreciative notes about the singer.

NOTES:
Lee's very last original album for Capitol Records. In various interviews conducted decades after the release of the album, Lee lamented that it did not receive proper promotion and distribution in the United States -- a consequence, she asserted, of a new management shuffle at Capitol. Unconfirmed reports from other sources suggest that the album was prematurely withdrawn from Capitol's catalogue (perhaps because the singer's association with the label was about to end?). Still further, a Peggy Lee fan who has talked with former EMI employees in the United Kingdom asserts that "the bulk of the print of the original LP was dumped in Europe, the Netherlands to be precise, and was bought in its entirety by a department store chain and retailed for a ridiculous price, the equivalent of what was then US 50¢."

Those reports and Lee's own feelings notwithstanding, the album did receive promotion. An ad placed in Billboard magazine was presumably paid by the record company. The ad showed a photo of the LP's front jacket and, under the photo, the legend "Norma Deloris Egstrom From Jamestown, North Dakota Has Recorded Her Greatest Album, ST-11007."

Furthermore, Capitol issued one single from Norma Deloris, an action that qualifies as (indirect) promotion of the LP.

The fact that copies of this 1972 piece are still occasionally found at used record stores further suggests that it did receive some amount of distribution, too, however minimal it might have been.

Perhaps the record company did not keep Lee well-informed of the promotional steps which were undertaken. Or maybe she simply wasn't happy with the amount of promotion that the album received. Perhaps her real objection pertained not so much to promotion and distribution as it did to the company's alleged withdrawal of the LP.

Sales could have also been hurt by the omission of Lee's professional name from both the ad and the album's jacket. Some potential buyers might have not readily identified the singer as Peggy Lee. (Her professional name appears only inside, on the vinyl.)

At any rate, the points made above prove that Capitol did took promotional steps on behalf of Lee's last album for the company. They also suggest that, up until this corporate shuffle, the record company still thought of Lee as an artist whose product was worth advertising.

On a different note, the cassette edition of this album is known to have been released in Australia. So far, I have found no evidence of release in the USA or in any other country.

Contains all but one of the numbers that Peggy Lee recorded with The Benny Goodman Orchestra. (The missing number is "Let's Say A Prayer.")

The artwork that graces the cover of this LP originally appeared in the 78 album Benny Goodman And His Orchestra And Sextet; Vocals By Peggy Lee, released in 1948. Among the minor changes made for the inclusion of the drawing in CBS Sopj 22-23, the words Columbia Records were eliminated, or rather substituted with the title for the new album, Elmer's Tune, which is colored pink. Also, a pink spotlight shines big and bright near the bottom end of the clarinet.

NOTES:
In the Netherlands, this album went through various reissues. The above-given release date (1973) might or might not belong to the debut edition; I have not been able to locate specifics on this matter. One of the reissues of Portrait Of Peggy Lee came out in 1975 (or thereabouts); that 1975 reissue carries the same tracks and the same catalogue number but a different front cover and a different title (The Peggy Lee Collection).

NOTES:
Not the full track listing; only tracks featuring Peggy Lee are listed. The issue date should be considered a very tentative guess. The album's front cover reads "mono-stereo '73." My assumption that '73 stands for the release year could be wrong.

Format: LP     Label: COLUMBIA     Cat. Num.: Pg 33405     Rel. Year: 1975
03:23 February 5, 1942; 1:30 p.m. - 5:00 p.m. (Booked 1:30 - 5:30) CO 32384-"A" Alternate Take (Columbia) My Little Cousin (Eli Basse, Sam Braverman, Cy Coben, Happy Lewis)

NOTES:
A double album that otherwise contains instrumentals, Solid Gold Instrumental Hits curiously includes Peggy Lee's vocal of "My Little Cousin." A plausible explanation for the inclusion is the undeniable catchiness of the melody, which was taken from a Yiddish original.

NOTES:
The Golden Double series consisted of at least 14 albums, each by a different artist, from Frank Sinatra and Julie London through Ike and Tina Turner to Adamo and Gilbert Becaud. This Peggy Lee issue includes a 6-page booklet, featuring mostly lyrics. The release year provided above (1976) should be deemed tentative; it is based on the corroborated date of another album in the series.

NOTES:
My thanks to Theo Andriessen for supplying extensive details about this 2LP set, of which I do now own a copy. One LP is entirely dedicated to Peggy Lee, the other to Al Jolson. Lee does not participate in Jolson's portion of the set, nor is he heard in any of the numbers performed by her. Besides the Lee and Jolson tracks, there is a tenth and final number in the LP, "Waltz In Swingtime." That track is actually an instrumental from one of the radio shows in which Peggy Lee guested with then-husband Dave Barbour, and is thus excluded from the listing above.

It should be noted in passing that the album's track listing contains numerous misspellings and inaccuracies. For instance, "Sunshine Cake" is misidentified as "Sunshine Lake" on the back cover, and as "Sunshine Kake" in the vinyl's label. The title "Way Back Home" is lengthened to "When I'm Back Home," while the title "A Thousand Violins" is shortened to "1,000 Violins." Instead of "You Was Right," the track lister would have us believe that Lee sings a number called "You'll Right Baby."

The mistakes extend to the photographic choices found in the front cover. Supposedly Al Jolson, the man photographed in blackface is instead impersonating actor Larry Parks, seen as he appeared in some scenes of the movie The Jolson Story. As for the photo of Peggy Lee, it shows 'the real deal,' though it is a picture taken more than two decades after the numbers that she sings in the album. It must also be mentioned that Bing Crosby is not credited anywhere, despite the fact that three of the tracks ("Sunshine Cake," "A Thousand Violins," " 'Way Back Home") are Crosby-Lee duets, not to say anything of about five Crosby-Jolson tracks.

But the strengths of this set are as noteworthy as its flaws. The radio performances that it contains were indeed rare at the time of the album's release, and to this day many of them still remain in obscurity.

As a discographer, I am particularly thankful for various track details given in the album's back cover. Particularly helpful was the specification of dates, which allowed me to identify most of the numbers. On that point, I should clarify that the identification of two of this set's ten performances is tentative: "Laroo Lilli Bolero" and "Can't Help Lovin' That Man." I will provide explanations below. Given the tentativeness of my decisions about these two tracks, readers should just bear in mind that additions and/or modifications might be provided in the future, if more data is forthcoming.

In the case of "Laroo Lilli Bolero," the date given in the album (July 7, 1948) does not correspond to any of the versions that I have tracked down. One of those versions is chronologically close to the album's version: a version broadcast during a March 24,1948 episode of Jimmy Durante's show and re-used by the Armed Forces Radio Service on a transcription disc dated July 11, 1948. Hoping that perhaps the Biac album has another error (this time, a dating error), I have tentatively identified the set's "Laroo Lilli Bolero" as the one heard on the AFRS disc.

For "Can't Help Lovin' That Man," the album gives its year as 1949, but does not specify the month, nor the day. Before she sings the number, Peggy Lee is heard describing it as follows: "here's a song Helen Morgan introduced in Show Boat. Remember?" At the present time, I am aware of three radio performances of the song, all of them from Chesterfield's Supper Club and all of them broadcast in 1949. Only the first of the three performances (January 20, 1949) is known to have been introduced by Lee with a mention of Helen Morgan. Unfortunately, her wording is different -- and move extensive -- than in the album. It may thus be that the album's performance is from a radio show of which I am not yet aware. Alternatively, it could be the exact same performance heard in the January 20, 1949 show, re-used by AFRS on one of its transcription discs (with a different, shortened introduction newly supplied by Lee). Other possibilities would also be valid, of course. But, for the time being, I have chosen to identify the album's performance as the one from January 20, 1949.

NOTES:
This live album finally made its CD debut in late 2015, as part of the Universal boxed set Live In London. Before 2015, nine of its sixteen tracks had never appeared on compact disc. Among the nonet were rare numbers which were not part of Lee's studio albums, either -- numbers such as "Dreams Of Summer," "You Got To Know How," and "Everything Must Change."

The catalogue number of this LP begins with the word "super," which I do not know to be part of the cassette version. (n.b.: 3170 448 is the number of the cassette; 2383 448 is the number of the LP.)

NOTES:
In the United States, the Polydor album Live In London was briefly released by Mercury in this abbreviated, 10-track version.

Mercury's files actually list the album as canceled. It presumably was, though not before some copies made it to a few chain stores. In fact, Peggy Lee fan and collector Wayne Brasler reports that he bought the Mercury edition of the LP in the late 1970s at a store in Chicago (either Sam Goody's or Montgomery Ward, he recalls). Brasler has also kindly shared with me a scan of the album's front and back covers, which are essentially identical to the Polydor original.

The differences between the two editions of the album pertain to the number and sequencing of the tracks. The Mercury LP includes just 10 songs. On side A, both the Polydor and the Mercury editions start and finish with the same songs: "Love For Sale" and "Everything Must Change" (tracks #1 and #2), "The Folks Who Live On The Hill" and "Touch Me In The Morning" (tracks #4 and #5). But the central portion of the two editions differ. The Mercury LP has inserted "Fever" in the middle of side A; in the Polydor version, "Fever" is the first track on side B.

On side B, the Mercury edition offers the following five numbers: "Mack The Knife," "Is That All There Is?," "Make Believe," "Dreams of Summer," and "Here's To You."

The back cover of the Mercury LP states that it is "[a]lso available on Musicassette and Stereo 8 Track Tapes: MCR-4-1-1172, MC-8-1172." I do not know if, before its cancellation, the album actually came out in those configurations.

The Canadian version of the album follows the same track listing as the Mercury version. It is on Polydor; its catalogue number is 2482 415.

The album versions on American Mercury and Canadian Polydor thus contain only 10 of the 16 original tracks. The following six songs were omitted: "You Got To Know How," "I Don't Want To Play In Your Yard," "Have A Good Time," "Why Don't You Do Right," "Sing A Rainbow" and "Mr. Wonderful."

NOTES:
Before 2015, five of these masters had yet to make their debut on compact disc ("Here Now," "I Go To Rio," "Courage, Madam," "Switchin' Channels," and "Just for Tonight") ; the other seven had appeared in a 1993 anthology entitled You Give Me Fever. The album finally made its digital debut as part of the Universal boxed set Live In London, with all twelve songs included (although two are worthwhile alternate takes).

The catalogue number of the Polydor LP Peggy begins with the word "super," which I do not know to be part of the cassette version. (n.b. : 3170 458 is the number of the cassette; Super 2383 458 is the number of the LP.)

NOTES:
Listed above is not the full track program but just the selections in which Peggy Lee is featured. All but one of her numbers from the February 11, 1948 episode of Bing Crosby's show are included. The omitted number is "Summertime" (a duet with Crosby). The sound quality of this LP is not good, unfortunately. The source presumably being a fan's taping of the original show, the speed needed correction. A is typical in such situation, the female singer sounds like Minnie Mouses on helium.

NOTES:
The LP version of this item belongs to the "CBS Favourite Jazz" series and was the format released in 1979. The CD version belongs to Sony's "Enchantment Of Jazz Vocal" series and was issued in 1986. That 1986 edition is in contention as the earliest Peggy Lee compact disc to ever be released, anywhere in the world. (However, the year of release needs further confirmation. Since I do not own a copy of the CD, I have relied on information found online.)

Notice that there is also a later CD edition of this same issue. It is dated 2002 and it expands the track listing from 16 to 24 numbers. To see and further compare all three editions, consult part VIII of this discography's pictorial page for Peggy Lee's Columbia Collaborations With Benny Goodman

Potential buyers should beware of an error disseminated through many commercial websites: a confusion of this album with another one also titled Portrait Of Peggy Lee from the Public Domain label Gallerie, viewable here. See additional commentary under that title.

NOTES:
When originally released, Close Enough For Love consisted of not only the LP and its record jacket but also a regular (8.5" by 11") white piece of paper, inserted in the record jacket along with the LP. The piece of paper was an advertisement for The Life Story Of Peggy Lee, a 20-page pamphlet described in the ad as "an ideal companion to the LP."

The actual pamphlet is titled Miss Peggy Lee (not The Life Story Of Peggy Lee). In reality, it was Lee's 1979 souvenir tour book. Since its front picture happens to be the same one used for the cover of Close Enough For Love, cross-marketing it with the album struck Fordin as a logical idea. (It certainly was.)

The contents of this 12" by 9" souvenir book are as follows: color photos of the singer (just in the front and back covers); three pages of biographical material, divided into "The Professional Side," "The Creative Side," and "The Personal Side"; a couple of poems by the singer; a list of her original American LPs up to 1975; some acknowledgments; and many small b&w photos, most of them featuring Lee with other celebrities (Jimmy Dorsey, Alice Faye, Jackie Gleason, Woody Herman, Liberace, Robert Preston, Ronald Reagan, etc., etc.).

(The album was originally released not only on LP but also on cassette and, cording to music guides, 8-track cartridge. I have not yet found corroboration of the latter's existence.)

Please notice that this entry contains performances by two of my discographical subjects. Of the six above-listed titles, "Why Don't You Do Right?" and "I Get The Blues When It Rains" are sung by Peggy Lee, whereas the other four are Chris Connor interpretations.

This LP was reissued by Tokuma Industries on its Dan Records imprint. (Dan Records is thus part of Tokuma. For the sake of greater clarity, I have still provided separate entries for the Dan LP and the Tokuma CD.) The front cover is the same one on both formats.

NOTES:
Because I have not actually listened to the album, this is a tentative entry. If the album truly is a movie soundtrack (as alleged by its subtitle), then Lee's 3 performances from the film should be the only ones included here: "La La Lu," "The Siamese Cat Song" and "He's A Tramp." Those would be her only 3 vocals herein. Alternatively, this Disneyland issue could actually be a reissue of the 10" Decca LP Songs From Walt Disney's Lady And The Tramp, in which case Lee would be heard singing not only the 3 aforementioned songs but also 3 others ("What Is A Baby?," "Bella Notte," and the "Peace on Earth/Silent Night" medley). Besides those 6 songs, the album includes 2 others which are definitely sans Lee, the instrumental "Lady" and the barbershop-style quartet harmony "Home, Sweet Home." For the time being -- while hoping to find out which tracks Lee actually sings -- I have listed only the 3 likeliest titles to be sung by her.

Please notice that there is an earlier edition of Disneyland LP Dq 1231 which features a different cover (Lady and The Tramp smilingly facing one another and standing on the ground, with a rainbow of interconnected circles behind them) and which definitely does not include any Lee vocals. In that album, a vocalist named Teri York sings the Lee vocals. (Such could of course be the case for the 1979 edition under discussion, too. I would appreciate receiving confirmation or denial from owners of the 1979 album.) The earlier LP seems to date back to 1962, although (reissue?) copies with 1964 and 1965 release dates can apparently be found as well.

NOTES:
The entire first side of this picture disc is sung by Peggy Lee. All those numbers come from her Decca album Songs From Walt Disney's Lady And The Tramp.

On the other hand, the second side does not feature Lee at all. It features the soundtrack versions of "What Is A Baby?" and "Bella Notte," which were written but are not sung by Lee in the film.

NOTES:
Not the full track listing; only tracks featuring Peggy Lee are listed. In Russ Connor's authoritative bio-discography of Benny Goodman, this LP's version of "How Long Has This Been Going On?" is identified as a previously unissued take. However, after two Peggy Lee listeners (the late Bill Brooks, Jarl Ingves) closely listened and detected no differences with the more commonly issued take #1, various Goodman experts proceeded to weigh on the matter. It is now generally agreed that Connor's earlier atribution was erroneous.

NOTES:
The LP Close Enough For Love was released in its "regular" version first (1979) and, years later, in a dbx special edition. (A noise reduction system used for professional recording, dbx requires special audio equipment to be appreciated.) Visually, the two versions seem identical, their only noticeable difference being the inclusion of the prefix dbx in the special edition.

I do not own a copy of this dvx edition. It is my understanding that it carries the date of the original edition (1979), despite having been issued some time afterwards. The above-given release year is approximate. It is based on a brief article that appeared on the December 13, 1980 issue of Billboard magazine. The article announces that this album "will be released on dbx-encoded disks."
