NOTES:




This chronological index lists all the discs released by the three radio transcription services for which Peggy Lee recorded: MacGregor, the ET division at Capitol, and World. (Click on the links for sessionographical data, and for overviews of each of these companies. Sample pictures of discs from each of these services have been supplied above.) Viewers should bear in mind that the dating of transcriptions must often be tentative, due to the scarcity of solid specifics about their recording and release. (Dating is also a topic discussed at length on the aforementioned pages.) Finally, I should clarify that this page lists on only discs from the transcription services for which Lee recorded. Other types of extant discs which are sometimes identified as transcriptions (e.g., acetates, and discs containing non-syndicated radio show material) are outside of the page's purview.

Title: [Eddie Skrivanek's Sextet From Hunger] The Sextet From Hunger Show
Artist: Peggy Lee
Format: Transcription Disc     Label: MacGregor     Cat. Num.: Program No. 1     Rel. Year: 1945

NOTES:
This transcription disc features episode #1 and #2 of a program led by a group known as The Sextet From Hunger. Led by Eddie Skrivanek, the dixieland sextet featured piano (Charles La Vere), bass, drums, trumpet, trombone, and an alternation of clarinet and sax (Blake Reynolds). Peggy Lee is the guest on the first, Martha Tilton on the second. In both episodes, the performances are actually MacGregor transcription recordings, rather than numbers sung on the spot. (In other words, the show was pieced together by assembling already recorded MacGregor numbers.) The date on which this transcription disc was released for radio syndication is unknown to me. Very tentatively, I have assigned it a 1945 date. The other possible options range from the remainder of the mid 1940s to the mid 1950s.

NOTES:

The Peggy Lee numbers are on side 641 of this transcription disc. Side 641 contains recordings by Les Paul with Trudy Williams on vocals.

Side #642 is actually a reissue of MacGregor side #143, already listed above. (As for the flip side featuring Les Paul and Trudy Williams, I have found no indication of its being a reissue.)

The date on which the MacGregor service prepared and sent out disc 641/642 to radio stations is unknown. Sequentially, a late 1940s date is suggested by a number as high as 642 (compared to the number of the original disc, #143). The 1950 date that I am entering is thus approximate and tentative.

Some conditional support for a late 1940s release date could be drawn from a look into Charles Garrod's MacGregor Radio Transcriptions, 1 To 920. Although Garrod does not provide a date for disc 641/642, he does supply dating for a few discs with similarly high numbers: #497 (January 1948), #506 (also January 1948), and #531 (April 1948). [Garrod's support rates as conditional because the reliability of his dating remains in question. He does not explain the source or rationale behind any of those dates.]

NOTES:

This is a reissue. All four tracks were originally issued in 1946 on another Capitol transcription disc, A-11. The track sequence is different, however.

The exact date on which this reissue was prepared and sent out to subscribing radio stations is unknown to me. Based on its catalogue number, I have given it a tentative 1950 dating, but any year between 1949 and 1953 remains viable as a possibility.

NOTES:

This is a reissue. All four tracks were originally issued in 1946 on another Capitol transcription disc, A-16. The track sequence is different, however. Furthermore, one of the five tracks from A-16 has been skipped.

The exact date on which this reissue was prepared and sent out to subscribing radio stations is unknown to me. Based on its catalogue number, I have given it a tentative 1950 dating, but any year between 1949 and 1953 remains viable as a possibility.


Title: [Nat King Cole] King Cole Court
Artist: Peggy Lee
Format: Transcription Disc     Label: MacGregor     Cat. Num.: Program No. 2     Rel. Year: 1950
03:13 January 1945 MMo 678-E Master Take (MacGregor) September In The Rain (Al Dubin, Harry Warren)

Peggy Lee (ldr), Dave Barbour And His Orchestra (acc), Henry J. "Heinie" Beau (cl), Herbert "Herbie" Haymer (ts), Billy May (t), Dave Barbour (g), Phil Stephens (b), Edwin "Buddy" Cole (p), Tommy Romersa (d), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:

King Cole Court was a syndicated MacGregor show starring Nat King Cole. The performances heard throughout the show were not sung on the spot. Instead, they were culled from MacGregor's transcription library. Each episode featured one guest, whose performance was also taken from the service's library. Peggy Lee was the guest of the second episode, and the transcription of hers at play was "September In The Rain," which she had recorded for the service in January of 1945.

I do not know the date on which year MacGregor prepared and made this show available for syndication. Left to my own devices, I would picked a 1945 or 1946 date (in other words, as early a date as possible). I have instead paid heed to the following production note, found in the CD The King Cole Trio: The MacGregor Years, 1941-1945, from the label Music & Arts Programs Of America: "[t]he[se] selections have been isolated ... and appeared thusly in the syndicated King Cole's Court in the early 1950s ..." I have thus given a tentative, approximate 1950 date to this show. I hope to eventually find more specific information and corroboration (or denial) on this matter.


Title: [Henry King] King At Court
Artist: Peggy Lee
Format: Transcription Disc     Label: MacGregor     Cat. Num.: Program No. 46     Rel. Year: 1950
03:07 January 1945 MMo 678-E Master Take (MacGregor) I've Had My Moments (Walter Donaldson, Gus Kahn)
02:39 January 1945 MMo 678-E Master Take (MacGregor) You Turned The Tables On Me (Louis Alter, Sidney Mitchell)

Peggy Lee (ldr), Dave Barbour And His Orchestra (acc), Henry J. "Heinie" Beau (cl), Herbert "Herbie" Haymer (ts), Billy May (t), Dave Barbour (g), Phil Stephens (b), Edwin "Buddy" Cole (p), Tommy Romersa (d), Peggy Lee (v)

NOTES:
King At Court was a syndicated MacGregor show starring Henry King. I have only minimal information about it. Given its name, the program could have had a loose connection with the similarly called King Cole At Court, hosted by Nat King Cole. (Maybe the two were offered to subscribing MacGregor stations as "sibling versions," which could be alternated in the same time slot? Or maybe there was no connection, aside from the coincidental inclusion of the word "King" and the MacGregor origination.)

According to the online database of the Library of Congress (where the C.P. MacGregor masterbook and library reside nowadays) the show was current from 1946 to, at the very least, 1948. In episode #46, certain comments made by the announcer and the singer allow us to circumscribe the episode's date to no earlier than 1948 (the year in which "Mañana" became a hit) and no later than 1950 (Lee's last year of marriage with Barbour). I have chosen a 1950 dating for the time being. I hope that more precise information will be uncovered in the future, when the year of release might thus change to 1949 or 1948.

Incidentally, the show's announcer calls Peggy Lee's guest appearance as a "return visit." Hence there must have been at least one previous Lee appearance, about which I do not have any information at the moment.
