NOTES:

 Comments About The Earliest All-Peggy-Lee CD Issue. The album pictured in the photo on the left was originally issued in 1957, as an LP. It is a compilation of tracks that Benny Goodman And His Orchestra recorded for the Columbia label in 1941 and 1942. (Back then, they were released on 78-rpm singles, and were primarily credited to Goodman, who had hired Lee to fulfill a canary role for the band.) This LP came out as part of a series of albums on a budget line that Columbia Records was newly setting up in 1957. A "buyer beware" is in order; this is an album that leaves a lot to be desired. For starters, it was electronically re-recorded to simulate stereo. Even more notoriously, Lee's first chorus is missing from the album's transfers of "Full Moon" and "That Did It, Marie." These faults and lesser ones were never corrected in any of the ensuing reprints and reissues of the album, CD transfers included.



 Reissued by CBS in 1988 as a compact disc, Peggy Lee Sings With Benny Goodman was either the earliest or one of the earliest Peggy Lee CDs ever to show up in the United States. Competition for the title comes from two of the singer's original 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 details about the earliest Peggy Lee CDs issues outside of the United States, consult several notes below -- in particular, those under the entry for the 1987 CDs Unforgettable, on Castle Records, and the ones under 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!.)


 As illustrated by the picture on the right, the CD was also available in longbox packaging during the late 1980s. On a separate but related note, I should point out that some sources erroneously claim that the Goodman-Lee CD under discussion was issued far earlier, in 1984. Not so. Although it is true that the year 1984 brought out a reissue/reprint of the album, the formats on which it became avaiable were LP and, probably for the first time, cassette. There was no CD counterpart until 1988. Corroborating evidence comes from a review published in the winter 1988 issue of the magazine Show Music, and from dedicated Goodman collectors who were active buyers at the time. (Had there been one, a 1984 CD edition would have been a "primeval" digital "specimen." That was the same year in which, according to most sources, the United States produced commercial CDs for the first time. Earlier commercially available CDs had come chiefly from Japan, which in 1982 had pioneered the practice of commercially releasing them.)


 If music price guides are to be believed, the CD Peggy Lee Sings With Benny Goodman has actually enjoyed quite a few additional pressings and/or reissues: 1990, 1992, 1995, et cetera. Some of those reissues were produced by branches aiming at listeners of a certain age, and at purveyors of nostalgia. One example is the CD shown on the right, from Sony Special Markets, whose release date is not fully clear to me. Some sources give it a 1990 date. My copy bears a 1992 date, but it could be that I own a reprint of a 1990 original. Moving on to another subject matter: the pictures seen below, in the remainder of this entry, present cassette versions of the issue under discussion, and have been included mostly for the purpose of decorating what is a very long entry. If curious to see yet more reissues and foreign editions of this album, consult part III of this discography's gallery of Lee-with-Goodman releases.





 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 remainder of the present entry.] In this CD index, all discs are listed chronologically by year of release. Exceptions to the chronological order involve entries featuring a CD that has a LP counterpart. In such cases, the release date is that of the LP, which sometimes is much earlier than the CD's date. (The entry right above is an instance -- a complicated one, at that.) Viewers should also be aware of the fact that I am missing the release date for about 30 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.) Further adding to the page's length are the occasional notes that I have provided for certain CDs of note. Expanded versions of such notes can also be found in the sessionography (i.e., the sessions, which form the primary body of this discography). One feature exclusive to the present page is, on the other hand, the listing of producer or production credits for recommended CDs.


 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 images that grace the entry above (i.e., Peggy Lee Sings With Benny Goodman) have been provided merely for aesthetic purposes, while others were meant to illustrate the points made in the surrounding text. The bottom of the page also uses images for decorative purposes. Most other images in this page subscribe to a different rationale: they 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 in the notes under the respective entries.)

NOTES:
Originally issued on LP by Brunswick, later reissued by MCA. Both issues contain all 14 above-listed songs. As should be amply apparent, the 1963 original date does not apply to the CD format, whose earliest release on my records is 1991.

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:
As shown above, this British item has been reissued numerous times. Titles vary from The Best Of Peggy Lee to just Peggy Lee ("Golden Greats"), but the the tracks of all those British editions are the same. Notice that the CD version was released later than the other formats (in 1991).

Various details suggest that these British versions should be deemed variations on an American album that has itself been reissued many times: Decca's The Best Of Peggy Lee (Dxb 164), a 2LP set first released in 1960. Common to all American and British LPs entitled The Best Of Peggy Lee is the same front cover photo, albeit the budget-looking British issues offer the photo in b&w, rather than in the full color of the American issues. (As for the "Golden Greats" titles, they use a different artwork.)

Also common to American and British titles are 11 of the above-listed 16 tracks. The handful of tracks not found in the American item are "He's A Tramp," "Just One Of Those Things," "I Didn't Know What Time It Was," "Love You Didn't Do Right By Me," and "Easy Living."

Benny Carter (arr, as), Joseph Lilley (con), Joseph J. Lilley Orchestra And Chorus (acc), James "Jimmy" Rowles (p), Bing Crosby, Danny Kaye, Peggy Lee, Trudy Stevens (v), Other Individuals Unknown (unk)

NOTES:
The 1983 release date applies to the LP only. The CD first came out in 1990; it seems to have been reprinted in some subsequent years. Since I do not own a copy of either the LP or the CD, my main dating sources for this particular reissue have been music guides. It seems that LP copies do not actually include the actual date of release but opt instead to inform consumers that the contents were produced "pre-1958."

NOTES:
Notice that the 1984 release date applies to the cassette only; the CD was first issued in 1990. A minor details also differentiates the compact disc from the cassette: whereas the latter uses the conjunction and, the former substitutes it with an ampersand. Furthermore, only the CD identifies itself as part of the "10 Best Series."

In 2003, Collectables Records reissued Fever & Other Hits on CD.

NOTES:
Notice that the 1984 release date applies to the LP and the cassette, not to the CD. In 2011, the low-quality, mass-marketing British label Hallmark issued an abbreviated MP3 edition of this album. It contains 12 numbers, skipping tracks #5, #6, #7, and #8 from the listing above.

NOTES:
Not the full track listing; only tracks featuring Peggy Lee are listed. The 1984 release date applies to the LP. The date for the CD is given as 1992 in some texts. It is likely to be correct, but I would not discard the possibility that the 1992 release might have been a reprint, in which case the CD's actual release date could be earlier.


Title: THE UNCOLLECTED PEGGY LEE, 1948

NOTES:


I have highlighted this issue because it includes some notable radio performances. It was also the earliest commercial release of any songs from Peggy Lee's World transcription output. Its sound quality is just average.

This issue is sometimes listed under the title With Dave Barbour & Billy May Bands, 1948, too. Notice that the 1985 release date seems to apply to the LP and cassette only; the earliest release date which I have found for the CD is 1994.

Singers was available both separately and as part of the 12-volume box Atlantic Jazz (catalogue number 81712). The box was issued in both cassette and LP configurations; I do not know if it was also produced in the CD format.

NOTES:
I have checked the back cover of Unforgettable's CD edition, and corroborated that it bears a 1987 copyright date. Unforgettable is thus in the running for earliest Peggy Lee CD ever released. Also in the running are Sony's A Portrait Of Peggy Lee, 1941-1942 (possibly, not certainly, 1986), Pigeon's Latin! (1987), and Joker Tonverlag's Why Don't You Do Right (1987). These are all foreign issues. The earliest USA Peggy Lee CDs of which I am aware date from 1988.


Title: [Bing Crosby] The Radio Years
Artist: (Not Peggy Lee)
Format: CD     Label: GNP Crescendo Collectors' Label     Cat. Num.: Gnpd 9052     Rel. Year: 1987
02:08 December 1, 1948 (Broadcast Date) (Pre-taped, Date Unknown) Extant Bing Crosby Show (ABC) On A Slow Boat To China (Frank Loesser)
01:55 December 29, 1948 (Broadcast Date) (Pre-taped, Date Unknown) Extant Bing Crosby Show (ABC) Cuánto Le Gusta (La Parranda) (Gabriel Ruiz Galindo, Ray Gilbert)

John Scott Trotter And His Orchestra (acc), Perry Botkin, Sr. (g), Phil Stevens (b), Joe Venuti (vn), Jud Conlon's Rhythmaires {Conlon, Mack McLean, Loulie "Lily" Jean Norman, Charles Parlato, Gloria Wood}, Bing Crosby, Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:
This is one of two GNP CDs called The Radio Years. Their front covers feature the same artwork and thus look nearly identical, except for the coloring used as backdrop (green for the item under discussion, violet for the other item) and a few less obvious details. Since the catalogue numbers of these CDs are Gnpd 9051 and Gnpd 9052, it can be inferred that one of them is volume 1 (violet) and the other volume 2 (green); the inference can be made only from the respective catalogue numbers. Since no such differentiation is made in the items themselves, customers aware of the existence of one CD could easily be unaware of the other CD's existence.

These two CDs are actually reissues of the 4 LPs that GNP had released earlier. Reissued as CD #9052 were the LPs labeled as volume 2 and volume 4, which contain the above-shown Peggy Lee tracks. CD #9051 is a reissue of volumes 1 and 3, which do not have any Lee tracks.

Release dates for both of these CDs vary widely from one source to another: 1987, 1988, 1989, 1990, 1991, 1992, 2004. Perhaps they were re-pressed very frequently.

Listed above are only tracks featuring Peggy Lee (as opposed to the CD's full track program).

NOTES:
A boxed packaging of the two CDs discussed in the previous note. Once again, the title and the artwork on the front cover are the same as related issues. And once again, the coloring of the cover's backdrop differs from all others: it's a dim red. Listed above are this box's Peggy Lee tracks only (not its full track program).

NOTES:
This CD was originally issued in 1987, and then reissued once or twice during the next decade. According to Lucas Tuinstra (a knowledgeable, fellow fan of Peggy Lee), "the Swiss company Joker Tonverlag AG [was behind] various labels of which The Entertainers is the most well known and they would often distribute their product via Italy which would then find its way to the rest of the world. Much of their product was on the border of legal and illegal, but with their way of distribution they got away with most of their releases. In the retailers' database, their product could only be traced by the company's name, Joker Tonverlag AG, and never by the label." In addition to Italy, France is another manufacturing country frequently credited in the label's releases. And, besides Switzerland, Liechtenstein and Germany are other countries that has been (mis)identified as the holder of the label's offices.

As for the reissues, one came out in 1996 and an earlier one might date from 1990. In all reissues, Promo Sound as the releasing label and the manufacturing location as the EEC. Since there are other Joker Tonverlag CDs which have been reissued on Promo Sound, or which otherwise credit that company as the manufacturer, we might speculate that the label underwent a name change. Alternatively, Joker Tonverlag could have sold its catalogue to Promo Sound.

Why Don't You Do Right is in the running for earliest Peggy Lee CD ever released. Also in the running is the British CD Unforgettable (1987) as well as the Japanese CDs Latin! (1987) and A Portrait Of Peggy Lee, 1941-1942 (possibly, not certainly, 1986).

NOTES:
Reissue of the Capitol album Latin Ala Lee!, with the twelve original tracks reshuffled. Also included are two tracks from the album Olé Ala Lee! ("Fantástico" and ""Just Squeeze Me"). Without the benefit of much additional information at hand, I am presuming Pigeon to be a Public Domain label.

If the issue date that I have for this item is correct, then Latin! is in the running for earliest Peggy Lee CD ever released. Also in the running are Sony's A Portrait Of Peggy Lee, 1941-1942 (possibly, not certainly, 1986), Pigeon's Latin! (1987), and Joker Tonverlag's Why Don't You Do Right (1987). These are all foreign issues. The earliest USA Peggy Lee CDs of which I am aware date from 1988.

NOTES:
There is also a 1976 Japanese LP entitled Peggy Lee ("Best 20" Series). That LP and this CD share the same title and the same front cover, but their respective track listings are different. No more than five songs are common to both issues. Furthermore, the CD was reissued in 1990, with the same tracks but a redesigned front cover. Whereas both CD editions identify themselves as belonging to the "Best Now" series, it is worth noting that only the 1988 disc calls itself part of the "Best 20" sub-series. (The aforementioned LP is not part of that sub-series, neither.)

NOTES:

About The Album's Title

This album actually has two valid titles: Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues and, more simply, Peggy Sings The Blues. The reason why both titles are valid is that they are jointly used in most configurations of the album. In the case of the cassette tape and the compact disc, Peggy Sings The Blues appears in the front covers, whereas Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues is the title printed inside, in the actual CD and CS. Only the LP sticks to the title Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues both in the front cover and in the vinyl itself. (As for the spine of the cassette, it uses the Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues variant.)

About The Recording Date

The exact recording dates for this album's performances remain unknown. The above-shown dating (January 29, 1988) is actually an approximation, to which I have resorted for indexing purposes. The precise date of all twelve performances falls between late January and early February 1988, but the exact dates remain unknown.

About The Release Date

The compact disc edition of Peggy Sings The Blues was originally released in November 1988 or a bit earlier, as proven by articles that were published that year, and which specifically review the album in its digital configuration. (Those reviews do not mention the LP or the cassette, but I believe that all three configurations were simultaneous released.) I do have an entry, needing further corroboration, in which the issue is listed as released in September 1988.

However, the CD is given a 1989 release date in some record guides. Most likely, those guides are pointing to the European edition of this album, which was indeed released in 1989. (Another possibility is that 1989 is, after all, the correct date. Since November 1988 is close enough to 1989, it could be that reviewers had received promotional copies well in advance of the album's release, and that they proceeded to review them before the CD came out. Such a possibility strikes me as unlikely, though -- particularly from a promotional perspective.)

The album went to a second pressing some time in 1992 or 1993, too.

In any case, I have chosen to give a 1988 date to the original release. 1988 is the copyright and sound recording copyright year given in all configurations of the album.

Reissues And Cover Artwork

MusicMasters' Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues has gone through a fair amount of pressings and reissues. MusicMasters' sister label, Jazz Heritage, reissued the album in 2002, in superior sound quality. Back in 1990, MusicMasters' parent company, Musical Heritage, also reissued the album, in two configurations (CD and cassette).

Re-pressings

A new catalogue number was assigned to MusicMasters' own 1992 re-pressing of the original 1988 album.

There has also been at least one licensee's pressing, which bears two catalogue numbers. The first of the two numbers is among those listed above (5005-2-C). The other catalogue number, D 143661, is accompanied by the legend "Mfd. for BMG Direct Marketing, Inc. under License," etc.

In a record guide, I have come across yet another catalogue number (820809) for the MusicMasters CD. This number is linked to S&R, which I presume to be another licensee, or perhaps a distributor.

Although those are the only pressings of which I am fully aware, I do not discard the possibility of others, which could bear entirely different catalogue numbers.

Foreign Versions

Of course, there have also been non-USA pressings of Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues, on labels such as Limelight, Polygram, and Phonogram. For a listing of those, consult this discography's Miscellanea section, specifically this page and this page.

NOTES:


Produced by Ron and Bob Furmanek. Digitally mastered by Bob Norberg. Original, brief liner notes included; no new liner notes.

I have highlighted this issue only because it features Lee's original holiday album in its entirety, along with bonus tracks. However, the quality of the mastering leaves something to be desired. (Otherwise, it is an okay issue.) The CD was also issued in a longbox edition that identifies itself as being part of the Capitol Collectors Series.

Two other CDs released by EMI in later years (Peggy Lee Christmas and Christmas With Peggy Lee) offer vastly improved, satisfactory sound quality but, unfortunately, neither one includes the entire repertoire of the original Christmas Carousel LP.

NOTES:
This 1990 item is a reissue of the 1988 album of the same title, issued by MusicMasters. The 1990 item has two valid titles: Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues or, more simply, Peggy Sings The Blues. The front covers of both the CD and the cassette show the title to be Peggy Sings The Blues but the actual compact disc and the cassette tape bear the alternate title Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues. In the cassette, the spine uses the Miss Peggy Lee Sings The Blues variant. All front covers credit the artist as Miss Peggy Lee.

NOTES:
 Conceived in commemoration of her 70th birthday (May 26, 1990), though its official nationwide release was June 25, and though press releases originally list it as coming out on March 13, 1990. Gracing the front cover is a drawing of the Peggy Lee Rose, a flower that the American Rose Society officially named after the singer in 1983. Includes brief liner notes by Sammy Cahn, who at the time was serving as president of the Songwriters' Hall of Fame and as ASCAP's vice-president. The booklet also includes transcriptions of all the featured lyrics. The album was originally sent to stores on CD and cassette; the LP version was at that time available only to members of the Columbia House Record Club.

Like her previous album on MusicMasters, The Peggy Lee Songbook also earned her a Grammy nominations in the category of Best Jazz Vocal Performance, Female. This was also the last of Peggy Lee's 14 Grammy nominations (12 bestowed on her, including one win; two bestowed on others but pertaining to her records). Or almost her last. In 1995, Peggy Lee received a very significant honor: The Grammy's Lifetime Achievement Award. And a few years after she passed away, there were also two Grammy nominations in connection to her 2004 set The Singles Collection.

Please notice that the above-given recording date (November 1, 1989) is actually the first of the various days spent recording these performances. The last day was November 3.

Contrary to what the credits in this album would seem to suggest, Gordon Jenkins, Johnny Mandel, and Victor Young were not present at these sessions. Instead, those credits point to the fact that their respective arrangements of previous Peggy Lee recordings were used by Lee and company.

Following the original 1990 pressing of this album, MusicMasters did another, to which it assigned a new catalogue number. That second pressing is from around 1992. I have also come across listings for a CD edition of The Peggy Lee Songbook which is not credited to MusicMasters or to Musical Heritage, though it bears the same year as the original release. Its catalogue number is S&R 8208212; I presume S&R to be a licensee or a distributor. Although those are the only pressings known to me, I do not discard the possibility of others, which could also bear entirely different catalogue numbers.

Furthermore, the album was reissued on MusicMasters' parent company, Musical Heritage. There are also non-USA (re)issues of There'll Be Another Spring: The Peggy Lee Songbook on labels such as Limelight, Polygram, Phonogram, and Venus. A listing can be found in the foreign pressings page of this discography's Miscellanea section.

NOTES:
 Actually a reissue of the 1981 Glendale LP You Can Depend On Me, this CD and the earlier Glendale issue come close to featuring Lee's MacGregor output in full: they include 14 out of the 17 titles. Everything about this CD, from the artwork to the absence of substantial liner notes, is drab and unappealing. Its sound quality is okay, except for the not-insignificant fact that all the performances are slightly sped-up. However, it is the most easily available and most complete CD edition of the material in question (the MacGregor transcriptions); in the absence of a better option, I have seen no alternative but to highlight it. Reissued in 1997 by the German label Capriole.

Along with a cassette from the mail order company Starline, the aforementioned items on Glendale, Laserlight, and Capriole are the only issues dedicated exclusively to Lee's MacGregor transcription recordings. (The Capriole issue adds some Nat King Cole transcription numbers.)

NOTES:
This CD contains performances from various radio airchecks, dating from July, September, and October 1941. It is actually an abbreviated reissue of Honeysuckle Rose's 2LP set Benny And Sid "Roll 'Em" (release date unknown). The LP contains 25 tracks, the CD 20. Unfortunately, a Peggy Lee vocal is among the excluded tracks. In addition to space limitations, a rationale behind the exclusion of this particular vocal ("Smoke Gets In Your Eyes") might have been the condition in which the performance has been preserved. As the producers of the Honeysuckle Rose LP acknowledges in a technical note found in its back cover: "On the selection Smoke Gets In Your Eyes we were faced with a few seconds of groove damage where we had to literally track the playback arm through this section of the [acetate] disc by hand." The performance also suffers from static.

NOTES:
Itself a reissue of the 1991 MCA CD Peggy Lee ("Best 22" Series), this CD was first issued in 1991, under catalogue number Mvcm 2505, and as part of the "Best One" series. In 1993, it reappeared as part of the same series, with catalogue number Mvcm 28023. Within the next few years, it showed up as part of the so-called "New Best One" series, reportedly with the same catalogue number. The other incarnation of which I am aware is Uicy 1543, from 2001, which is separately listed in this index.

NOTES:
The tracks in this CD are in heavy need of speed correction; all of them are slowed down to such a degree that everybody sports a gravelly voice. (Only Louis Armstrong sounds like his natural self.) Shown above is not the item's full track listing but only the tracks featuring Peggy Lee. My copy is dated 1991; some online sites give a May 25, 2001 release date.

NOTES:



  This fine-sounding anthology was compiled and produced by Alan Dell. It is one of three related issues, all released by EMI in 1992, with   peculiar catalogue numbers that allude to either the hit single "Fever" or the singer herself (Peg). The two other issues are a 2-song CD single and a 4-song CD single, both of which identify themselves as being "from the forthcoming album Fever." Presumably, the so-called album was this CD.

NOTES:

This was the premiere release of nearly all of the above-listed tracks, which had been originally recorded for the World radio transcription company. No liner notes. No notes about sources or mastering.

The overall sound quality of this CD cannot be said to be higher than middling, yet surely still far better than that of the old original 16" discs from which the performances were transferred. Bear also in mind the relatively early year of release. Significantly better sound quality can be heard in the so-called deluxe, 2001 edition of the Deja Vu CD Peggy Lee ("The Gold Collection" Series).

NOTES:
Please notice that only the CD edition of this item includes all 26 tracks. Probably due to space limitations, the cassette edition includes 22 tracks, skipping the last 4 numbers listed above (" ' Deed I Do," "Them There Eyes," "I Can't Give You Anything But Love," "If Dreams Come True"). Incidentally, the incongruent inclusion of "If Dreams Come True" in this CD's track listing suggests that this company could have ties to Joker Tonverlag, another company that made incongruent use of the same track. Notice as well that the data at my reach has a 1992 release year for the CD, a 1993 release year for the cassette.

NOTES:



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

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

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

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


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

NOTES:



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

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

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

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

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

NOTES:
This album is a studio recreation of a live show that could not be released due to technical difficulties at the concert venue. Full details about the concert and about its difficulties can be found in the notes under the Capitol sessions dated May 1959.

On CD, Beauty And The Beat! exists in two master versions. One is a digital transfer of the takes exactly as they were issued in the original LP. That is the version heard in this 1992 CD. It comes from second-generation tapes which include dubbed-in applause and spoken introductions. The other version (2003) was remixed from the first-generation master (3-track) tapes. It has no applause and no spoken introductions.

This 1992 version also has many fans, for whom pleasure to be had in the recreation of a live-in-concert atmosphere. However, the lion's share of the praise has gone to the 2003 edition, due to the wealth of previously unheard vocal and musical nuance that it successfully captures.

Early pressings of this 1992 CD listed a personnel that, soon after the disc's release, was discovered to be erroneous. The correct personnel was listed in later pressings.

Produced by Michael Cuscuna. Liner notes by Will Friedwald.

NOTES:
This CD was manufactured but left unreleased in the United States. It was apparently released in Europe, however. (My friend Thomas Ludwig has corroborated that he bought one copy at a record store in Germany, around 1992. I am also aware of other store-sold British copies.)

Word of mouth suggests that the cancellation was due to Capitol's unwillingness to make a very small modification to the front cover, after it had already gone to print. Perhaps out of modesty, Quincy Jones is said to have objected to the sight of his name in the same size as Peggy Lee's. Although this account originates in a reliable source, there is one factual detail that puts its veracity into question: the copies in existence do have Quincy Jones' name in a smaller font. Hence, if we are going to trust that the big font was at the heart of the objection, then we would have to wonder why Capitol decided to cancel the release after having granted Quincy's wish.

NOTES:


Extensive commentary about this album can be found in the sessionography of this discography, here. Perhaps fatigued after more than a month of concert performances, or perhaps beset by her various ailments, the seventy-second-year-old was not in optimal vocal condition at the time of these sessions. Acquaintances of the singer have privately reported that Lee wished to leave the album unreleased, but her contract commitment prevented any steps in that direction. Despite her misgivings about the quality of the work that she had turned in, Lee felt grateful to Chesky Records for their interest and for the opportunity that the label's owners had given to her.

Title: [Gilbert O'Sullivan] Sounds Of The Loop
Artist: (Not Peggy Lee)
Format: CS/CD     Label: PARK     Cat. Num.: (United Kingdom) Parkmc/cd 19      Rel. Year: 1993
04:04 August or Early September 1992 Master Take (Park?) Can't Think Straight (Raymond O'Sullivan)

Gilbert O'Sullivan (ldr), Gilbert O'Sullivan (pdr, arr, key, v), Allen Branch, Mark Flannery, John Gallen, Steve Lowe (eng), Laurie Holloway (arr, ccm), Geoff Whitehorn (g), Bob Skeat (b), Mick Parker (pac), Roly Kerridge (per), Peggy Lee (v, spk), Other Individuals Unknown (v)

NOTES:
Not the full track listing; only the one track that features Peggy Lee is listed.

The original edition of Sounds Of The Loop was released by Toshiba Emi (CD Tocp 6897). In that 1991 release for the Asian market, O'Sullivan sings "Can't Think Straight" in the company of pianist and vocalist Takao Tisugi. All the numbers included in that edition of Sounds Of The Loop were recorded between June 24 and September 12, 1991.

O'Sullivan's version featuring Peggy Lee was initially released by the British label Park in 1992 as part of a single also entitled Can't Think Straight (Park CD #15). The single describes itself as an advance sample from the album. One year later, Park finally released its own CD edition of the Sounds Of The Loop album (Park CD #19), obviously meant for distribution in the United Kingdom and, to a lesser extent, the United States. This Park edition contains two versions of "Can't Think Straight": the duet with Takao Tisugi (track #12) and the duet with Peggy Lee (track #6). Additional differences between the Toshiba EMI and Park editions are discussed here, in the notes under the session dated August 2, 1992.

Except for the year, the recording date assigned to this performance is approximate. The exact day of recording is unknown; the month is believed to have been either August or early September. Taken from the album's credits, the personnel is a collective one, and should also be considered tentative.

This CD was issued in other countries where different vocal partners accompany O'Sullivan for his rendition of "Can't Think Straight." Besides Tisugi, there is Kirsten Siggaard, from Denmark, and Silvia Tortosa, from Spain. (Details about how those duets were conceived and produced are fuzzy in all four cases. It seems likely that O'Sullivan and his partners recorded their respective parts separately, although in Lee's case O'Sullivan made a point of flying to New York and coming to the studio while she was recording her part.)

NOTES:

This recommended CD includes about half of the masters that Peggy Lee recorded with Benny Goodman for Columbia Records. (For the complete set of performances with Goodman, see another recommended CD, Peggy Lee & Benny Goodman: The Complete Recordings, 1941-1947.) Produced by Michael Brooks. Transferred from the original "metal masters or shellac parts." Archival restoration and remastering by Larry Keyes. Lines notes by Richard M. Sudhalter. Photo of Lee and Goodman on the cover, the latter playing the clarinet while simultaneously looking at a score. Lee is reading the score of "I Threw A Kiss On the Ocean."


The CD's discographical notes suffer from a few errors, most of them pertaining to the inclusion of previously unissued alternate takes. To wit:

1. Its version of "Elmer's Tune" is described as a "previously unissued master." Such a wording is at the very least equivocal, if not plain wrong. Given the fact that the performance in question (CCO 3950-1) is not the master, the last of those three words should be "alternate."

2. The claim that CCO 3950-1 was "previously unissued" is also inaccurate. This alternate take was first issued by the collectors' label Phontastic, probably with the blessing of Benny Goodman himself, back in 1980. (As for the only other extant take, the master, Columbia first issued it in 1941, on its subsidiary label Okeh.)

The likely reason why Columbia (Sony) calls CCO 3950-1 unissued is because the company itself had not released it before. As explained by Goodman's bio-discographer D. Russell Connor, who wrote the notes for the aforementioned Phontastic album: "[i]n company with other major label producers, Sony refuses to acknowledge prior releases on unauthorized labels."

3. Similarly, take #1 of "Not A Care In The World" is described by the CD's annotator as a "previously unissued alternate take." Whereas it is true that Columbia had not issued this alternate before 1993, Phontastic certainly had.

4. The CD's take of "Shady Lady Bird" is incorrectly identified as #3. According to D. Russell Connor, the disc contains take #2 instead.

NOTES:
This CD contains four radio shows hosted by Peggy Lee. The first six tracks are from her 1947 program The Summer Electric Hour, co-hosted with Woody Herman; the other tracks are from three episodes of Club 88: The Peggy Lee Show, which she hosted alone in 1952. In addition to the 19 numbers listed, the disc includes an announcer's introduction (track #1) to The Summer Electric Hour, an instrumental by Sunny Burke And His Orchestra and four solo tracks by Lee's guests (Andre Previn, Johnny Desmond, Desi Arnaz, Jeff Chandler), for a total of 25 tracks.

The last number, "It's A Good Day" is mostly instrumental, except for a couple of lines sung by Lee ("yes, it's a good day for singing a song and it's a good day for moving along"), and the announcer's ensuing statement that "this is the United States Armed Forces Radio Service." Presumably, this rendition of "It's A Good Day" served as the closer of all or most of the show's episodes, when they were transferred by the AFRS. The recording date of "It's A Good Day" is thus unclear — presumably early during the show’s history. Hence I have arbitrarily given it the same date as the tracks which immediately precede it.

NOTES:
Contains one set of liner notes by Edward Jablonski and another by Will Friedwald. Also, specifics about the songs (e.g., year of creation and theatrical source, if any).

Please notice that the above-given recording date (August 29, 1988) is just the first of the various days spent recording these performances. The last day was September 2.

A British music fan once told me that a Peggy Lee LP entitled I Had A Love Once had been released abroad. No other sights of an album with that title are known to me. Most likely, the fan was confused about the title, and was actually thinking about Love Held Lightly. Also curious is his description of the item as an LP; to my knowledge, Love Held Lightly has been issued only on cassette and compact disc.

Though recorded for Harbinger Productions in 1988, this session's masters were first released in 1993 by Angel Records. Peggy Lee herself was the cause of the five-year delay. For specifics on this matter, consult the notes here, under the session dated August 29, 1988. In 1992, she gave a fresh listening to the mix and unexpectedly called Rudman to authorize the album's release. As Rudman remembered, Lee said to him on the phone, "you know, dear, I've been listening to this tape, and it's really pretty good. I don't see any reason why you shouldn't put this out if you want to." Once Lee gave her blessing, Bloom and Rudman took on the task of finding new investors in order to continue the project. After they completed that task, the producers' next hurdle was to convince the record labels that the album merited commercial release. Some of their past Harbinger projects had been successfully licensed to Stash Records, but in 1992 they were not finding any takers. "We sent tapes all over the place," Rudman told Cleveland Plain Dealer reporter Rebecca Freligh, "and we kept getting told, Peggy sounds terrific, but why did you record all these songs that nobody knows?, which was very discouraging." Finally, the album was picked up by Angel Records, a label whose specialty was classical American music. According to what the company's vice president of marketing (Linda Sterling) told Freligh, Love Held Lightly struck the label as "a natural" for them. Since Angel Records was in reality a New York-based branch of Capitol, their release of Love Held Lightly signified Peggy Lee's return (of sorts) to her mother label.

NOTES:
The 24 above-listed titles can be found in the CD only. The cassette contains 20 of them. Presumably due to space limitations, 4 of the CD's last 5 tracks are missing from the cassette: "I'm Glad There Is You," "Swing Low, Sweet Chariot," "He Needs Me," and "Guess I'll Go Back Home Next Summer." Some of this label's issues are known to be licensed, and thus official. In the case of Fever, the item may have been licensed.

NOTES:
There have been at least three CD editions of this issue, each with a different front sleeve and a different release label. The exact same 20 tracks appear on all three editions.

Dating from 1994, this is the earliest of the editions. It was issued by Castle Communications on both compact disc and cassette tape. As a CD, it is titled Let There Be Love; The Best Of Peggy Lee and has catalogue identification Mat Cd 316. As a cassette, its title is simply The Best Of Peggy Lee, its catalogue id Mat Mc 316.

The other two editions -- one of them being the one under discussion -- are both called Let There Be Love. Wisely, both drop the sub-title The Best Of Peggy Lee, which was false advertisement.

Dating from 1995, the second edition bears catalogue number 153, with prefix Trt Cd for the compact disc, Trt Mc for the cassette. I believe True Trax to have been a division of Castle Communications. (Because I do not own a copy of this particular edition, some of my information about it is a bit tentative.)

The last of the three editions dates from 1997 and bears catalogue number Pls cd 214. It was released by Kaz Records, a division of Castle Communications, as part of Castle's Pulse series.

NOTES:
The collectors' edition of this item is identical to the regular edition, except for the following details: it is boxed, it comes with three Peggy Lee cards, and it has a different catalogue number (Mccdse 157 04 998). Furthermore, my collectors' edition identifies itself as manufactured in Germany instead of Great Britain.

The 2000 reissue is credited to the Demon Group, a British conglomerate that had apparently bought and annexed the Music Club's holdings by that point in time. Demon kept the same tracks, sleeve notes, and cover artwork, though the latter was slightly modified from its original white to a gray background coloring.

NOTES:


  Not the full track listing; only tracks featuring Peggy Lee are listed. In Russ Connor's authoritative bio-discography of Benny Goodman, this CD'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 attribution was erroneous.

NOTES:


  Not the full track listing; only tracks featuring Peggy Lee are listed. According to D. Russell Connor, the notes of this CD contain one bit of erroneous information about an earlier issue.   The CD's notes state that Blu-Disc LP T 1014 (The Unheard Benny Goodman, Volume 7; 1941-1942) contains take "B" of Why Don't You Do Right?, when in truth the take that it   contains is "A." (As for take "B," it can actually be found in Blu-disc T 1015, The Unheard Benny Goodman, Volume 8; 1936-1955, which is the next album from the series).

NOTES:
There have been at least three CD editions of this issue, each with a different front sleeve and a different release label. The exact same 20 tracks appear on all three editions.

Dating from 1994, the earliest of the editions was issued by Castle Communications on both compact disc and cassette tape. As a CD, it is titled Let There Be Love; The Best Of Peggy Lee and has catalogue identification Mat Cd 316. As a cassette, its title is simply The Best Of Peggy Lee, its catalogue id Mat Mc 316.

The other two editions -- one of them being the one under discussion -- are both called Let There Be Love. Wisely, both drop the sub-title The Best Of Peggy Lee, which was false advertisement.

Dating from 1995, this second edition bears catalogue number 153, with prefix Trt Cd for the compact disc, Trt Mc for the cassette. I believe True Trax to have been a division of Castle Communications. (Because I do not own a copy of this particular edition, some of my information about it is a bit tentative.)

The last of the three editions dates from 1997 and bears catalogue number Pls cd 214. It was released by Kaz Records, a division of Castle Communications, as part of Castle's Pulse series.

NOTES:
I have generally listed various-artists compilations in a separate discographical page, but have made exceptions for a few compilations that might be of interest to collectors. This 1995 CD is a Sony-licensed product whose artwork might be collectible to Lee fans. On its front cover, the release features a drawing of a brass section and a female, singing into a microphone. Though the woman is unidentified, her face is clearly Peggy Lee's (minus mole, and with a neo-swing attire which is unlike anything that Lee was ever known to wear, however).

NOTES:
Produced by Michael Cuscuna. Digitally remixed from the orginal three-track tapes by Mark Chalecki. Liner notes by James Gavin.

This Capitol CD states that its performances were all recorded either during "an after-hours show with an invited audience on February 9 or at a New York studio on March 8, 1961." That statement is partially in conflict with the dating found in Peggy Lee's Capitol session files, where many of the performances are dated February 5 and 8. Capitol's files strike me as the more reliable of the sources that deal with this particular matter.

As for the alleged March 8 studio session, I am not convinced that it is correctly dated. Notice that the release date that I have for the original LP is March 15, 1961: merely one week later. This seems too short a time span between recording and release. Granted that there could have been a postponement, unknown to me (i.e., the album's originally scheduled March 15 street date might have given in to some later date), I am still more inclined to believe that no studio session took place on the 8th. This is, however, a personal assessment for which I have no corroboration.

I do not know if the producers of the CD had any definite evidence of a March 8 studio session. I do know that some of the Capitol tapes had that date marked on them, but I am presuming that those are dubs or safety copies which show their date of dubbing.

The CD's track listing contains a minor mistake. Its last two tracks are listed in the following manner:

12. A Tribute To Ray Charles:
Just For A Thrill
Yes Indeed
13. Peggy Lee Bow Music

The mistake is that the total number of tracks should be 14, not 13. "Peggy Lee Bow Music" is identified as #14 while the CD is playing. Despite being part of a medley, "Yes, Indeed!" is identified as track #13.

NOTES:

  MusicMasters actually released two volumes of The Benny Carter Songbook. Featured are nearly 20 vocalists, each singing one or two songs by the   eponymous composer, musician, conductor, and arranger. Some of those singers (Carmen Bradford, Diana Krall, Diane Reeves, Wesla Whitfield) came   in after they were recommended by their managers or specifically recruited by producer Danny Kapilian, whereas Carter himself appears to have   requested the presence of others who were friends or favorites of his (Peggy Lee, Nancy Marano, Marlena Shaw and, especially, Joe Williams). All but   one of them recorded their respective numbers either in late June (NY) or in late July 1995 (LA). According to Kapilian, "Peggy Lee, one of Carter's   oldest friends, made it to the studio last of all to deliver the most fragile version imaginable of Benny Carter's I See You." For extensive detail about the   project, consult note under the session dated August 26, 1995 in this page. Lee participated only in volume I, not in volume II.

NOTES:
Produced by Ken Barnes. Digital mastering and Dolby surround recording of the London Palladium concert: Copthorne Studios, Maidenhead, Berkshire, England. Mixdown engineer: John Timperley. Assistant engineer: Martin Astle. Dolby surround consultant: Andy Day at Dolby Laboratories. (Original?) recording engineer: Steve Taylor. Liner notes by Ken Barnes.

This was the debut release of Peggy Lee's March 20, 1977 concert at the London Palladium. In its spine, this first edition simply calls itself The Best f Peggy Lee, but its front cover suggests that the full title is Fever! The Best Of Peggy Lee.

Originally issued in 1996, this Pulse/Kaz CD was later reprinted with a different cover and a partially different title (Fever! Live At The London Palladium). The cover of the earlier version shows a b&w drawing (or rather, a photo negative) of Lee in the mid-1970s. The reprint shows three color photos of Lee, performing some time in the early or mid-1960s.

The concert has continued to be reissued since then. The very best options is the 2015 Universal CD-DVD combo Peggy Lee Live In London.

Peggy Lee (ldr), Dave Cavanaugh (pdr), Sid Feller (con), Sid Feller and His Orchestra (acc), Nat King Cole, Peggy Lee, Nancy Wilson (v)

NOTES:
This Capitol CD was the first out of two in the "Ultra Lounge" series. It contains three secret tracks. (That is to say, none of those three numbers appear in the CD's track listing.) The trio of surprise numbers is positioned at the very end of the disc, after track #18. One of them is "Jingle Bells," sung by Johnny Mercer, and another is a tongue-in-cheek version of "Violets For Your Furs," spoken by a 1950s act known as The Continental.

The remaining secret track is a special version of "Toys For Tots," sung by Peggy Lee, Nat King Cole, and Nancy Wilson, who are heard in that order. The track is actually a mix of those artists' separate versions of "Toys For Tots" and was presumably put together specifically for inclusion in the Christmas Cocktails CD. So clever is this mix that listeners might be left with the impression that all three singers gathered together for one single performance. But no such event happened: Cole recorded his "Toys For Tots" (master #17965) on November 22, 1957, and Wilson did hers (master #53805) on June 4, 1965.

NOTES:
This Public Domain set has been issued in two editions. The second, so-called Deluxe Edition substantially improves on the sound quality of the first edition. Both editions are out of print by now.

Lee's World transcription recordings have yet to receive a complete and proper compact disc issue. For listeners wishing to sample Peggy Lee's World transcription output, the deluxe edition is the better-sounding of all the available choices to date. It includes 18 of the 20 World numbers that Avid originally released in the CD Peggy Lee Sings For You (left out: "Sans Souci" and "What's New?"), as well as 22 tracks taken from other sources.

An official and complete CD release of all 49 World transcriptions is a much-desired item among big fans of Peggy Lee's music.

NOTES:
Included in this bootleg CD are almost the entire contents of two Capitol LPs: Basin Street East Proudly Presents Miss Peggy Lee and Two Shows Nightly. Edited out from the bootleg's transfer of the Two Shows Nightly album are a few of the spoken, introductory bits that Lee utters before some songs. Those can be heard not only in the original LP but also in the deluxe edition that Collectors' Choice released in 2009.

The back cover of the CD and the disc itself identifies that releasing label as Promo Sound AG. In this discography, all issues that bear credits to "Promo Sound," "The Entertainers," "Joker," "Joker International," or "Joker Tonverlag" have been listed under that last company's name. According to fellow fan and knowledgeable friend Lucas Tuinstra, "the Swiss company Joker Tonverlag AG [was behind] various labels of which The Entertainers is the most well known and they would often distribute their product via Italy which would then find its way to the rest of the world. Much of their product was on the border of legal and illegal, but with their way of distribution they got away with most of their releases. In the retailers' database, their product could only be traced by the company's name, Joker Tonverlag AG, and never by the label."

NOTES:
This item is one of various CDs from the late 1990s containing Peggy Lee's March 20, 1977 concert date at the London Palladium. One difference: the more common order of the tracks has been altered for this particular release. (Neither this order nor the more common order reflect the real order in which Peggy Lee performed the number. The actual order was finally re-enacted in 2015, with the release of the boxed set Live In London.)

NOTES:
The EMI CD Things Are Swingin' / Jump For Joy contains not stereo but mono versions of both albums. There is no definitively known reason for EMI's choice of mono despite the availability of stereo, but two unofficial explanations have circulated among fans of Peggy Lee.

According to one explanation, EMI in the United Kingdom faced a dilemma when they belatedly realized that Capitol's tape library (located in the United States) had shut down for nine months, as part of an ongoing process of tape relocation. This situation posed a dilemma for the British label. EMI had already publicized the twofer, going as far as to announce its release date. Moreover, the project had gone into production, with features such as the cover artwork in the process of being completed. The option of waiting for nine months was thus deemed out of the question. In this version of events, EMI decides to just use its own library's tapes, which are non first-generation. More to the point, this explanation portrays EMI as able to locate only mono copies in its library.

The other explanation holds that EMI misunderstood a directive given by Ray Purslow, owner of the music store Record Centre, in Birmingham, England. (Mr. Purslow used to supply EMI with advice on which albums to release in the two-fer-one series, and he would also lend cover artwork to the company when necessary.) According to this account, Purslow had made some comments to EMI about the imperative of rejecting duophonic or "fake stereo" when it was the only available stereo, instead choosing mono in such cases. EMI is said to have misinterpreted those comments as meaning that issuing mono was preferable to issuing stereo.

Both of these explanations center on the notion of miscommunication among the parties involved. Underlying them is the fact that EMI's twofer series was just starting when this Peggy Lee disc was prepared. Hence errors of coordination were much likelier to happen then than in later times. Subsequent Peggy Lee titles in the series invariably used the stereo versions of the albums (with the exception of The Man I Love, which was digitally issued in mono because there has never been a stereo release).

On a different note, it is also worth adding that there is a cassette version of this twofer. The cassette was not released in the United Kingdom, however, but in Thailand.

NOTES:
Not the full track listing; only the one track that features Peggy Lee is listed.

Rhino Records has released a CD entitled The Best Of Gilbert O'Sullivan twice, first in 1991 and then in 1997. As far as I have been able to ascertain from online listings (I do not own copies of this disc), the catalogue number of both editions is the same (R2 70560), and both editions contain 20 tracks. But the 1997 reissue substitutes two of the 20 tracks in the 1991 issue. One of the substituted tracks is "Can't Think Straight." In other words, only the 1997 edition includes "Can't Think Straight."

Further adding to the confusion surrounding this Rhino compilation is the fact that the first pressing of the 1997 edition erroneously included the Kirsten Siggaard version. According to worth of mouth from his fans, a very mortified O'Sullivan requested a recall of that first pressing. The second pressing is said to contain the Peggy Lee version.

Except for the year, the recording date assigned to this performance is approximate. The exact day of recording is unknown; the month is believed to have been either August or early September.

NOTES:
This CD combines 14 of Peggy Lee's MacGregor transcriptions (previously released by Glendale/Legend and by Laserlight) with 13 transcription numbers by Nat King Cole. This twofer of sorts is more precisely a reissue of two American CDs issued by Laserlight. From Laserlight's Nat King Cole Trio 1943-49 (1990), Capriole took only the vocal sides, leaving out the discs' 5 instrumentals. From Laserlight's Peggy Lee with The Dave Barbour Band (1991), Capriole took every track. Common to the American and the German label is the same parent company (and distributor?), Delta.

NOTES:
There have been at least three CD editions of this issue, each with a different front sleeve and a different release label. The exact same 20 tracks appear on all three editions.

Dating from 1994, the earliest of the editions was issued by Castle Communications on both compact disc and cassette tape. As a CD, it is titled Let There Be Love; The Best Of Peggy Lee and has catalogue identification Mat Cd 316. As a cassette, its title is simply The Best Of Peggy Lee, its catalogue id Mat Mc 316.

The other two editions -- one of them being the one under discussion -- are both called Let There Be Love. Wisely, both drop the sub-title The Best Of Peggy Lee, which was false advertisement.

Dating from 1995, the second edition bears catalogue number 153, with prefix Trt Cd for the compact disc, Trt Mc for the cassette. I believe True Trax to have been a division of Castle Communications. (Because I do not own a copy of this particular edition, some of my information about it is a bit tentative.)

This edition, the last of the trio, dates from 1997 and bears catalogue number Pls cd 214. It was released by Kaz Records, a division of Castle Communications, as part of Castle's Pulse series.
