Product Description:

The deluxe 4-CD SINGLES COLLECTION comes with a 71-page booklet including an essay by Will Friedwald and a complete singles discography by Ivan Santiago as well as rare photos and LP covers.
Personnel includes: Peggy Lee, Mel Torme, Dean Martin (vocals); Dave Barbor & His Benny Goodman Orchestra; Bob Crosby & His Orchestra.
Compilation producers: Cy Godfrey, Steve Woof.
Recorded between 1941 & 1975.
All tracks have been digitally remastered.
THE SINGLES COLLECTION was nominated for the 2004 Grammys Award for Best Album Notes and for Best Historical Album.
This comprehensive overview of Peggy Lee's singles output traces her development from the ex-big band singer of 1944's "You Was Right, Baby" (recorded more or less as a demo) to the established chanteuse she became in the '60s, covering the songs of youthful pop stars such as "Something" by the Beatles or Tim Hardin's "Misty Roses." Along the way, she has been conducted by Frank Sinatra ("The Folks Who Live on the Hill"), employed Randy Newman as an arranger ("Is That All There Is"), recorded with Louis Prima's Orchestra ("Yeah Yeah Yeah"), and rearranged a Duke Ellington theme into a hit song ("I'm Gonna Go Fishin'").
This is, of course, just the tip of the iceberg--there are jazz classics ("I Love Being Here with You"), ethereal ballads ("My Gentle Young Johnny"), and, of course, the amazingly sultry "Fever." But, most of all, there's Lee's voice--able to convey the strongest of emotions with the barest whisper, veering from modern-age ennui to aching sentimentality, always engaging our sympathies, and, above all, constantly swinging.
