Culled from the Grammy-winning deluxe box set MISS PEGGY LEE, this re-mastered collection is perhaps the most compact overview of Peggy Lee's early and late Capitol periods. Her late-'40s hits, done in collaboration with guitarist/husband Dave Barbour, have never sounded better, and include here essential Peggy Lee originals like the sly "I Don't Know Enough About You," "It's a Good Day," and the politically incorrect (even for the time) "Manana." Since Lee spent the first half of the '50s at Decca, her return to Capitol in 1957 unveiled a seasoned pro in a completely different (improved) recording environment. These are the years of "Fever" and "Alright, Okay, You Win." It's interesting that as the singer commanded more deluxe studio treatment, she and her producers opted for a "big beat" R&B feeling. Nevertheless, Peggy Lee's musical instincts never hurt her commercially as her 1969 swan song, the Lieber-and-Stoller-produced "Is That All There Is?," proved all too well.
