Description

. 40 tracks from 1951-52's The Peggy Lee Show, most tracks previously unissued. Standards from Cole Porter, Richard Rodgers, Hoagy Carmichael, and more. Liner Notes from music journalist Joe Marchese . Peggy Lee is the recipient of the GrammyR-Lifetime Achievement Award. Deluxe Digi-Pak Release Commemorating Peggy Lee's Centennial "Music is my life's breath," proclaims the epitaph of Norma Deloris Egstrom, better known to the entertainment world by her professional name of Peggy Lee. 2020 marked the centennial anniversary of this extraordinary artist and her considerable contributions to the world of jazz and popular music. Over her seven-decade career, Peggy Lee helped redefine what it meant to be a female singer, and her quietly captivating voice continues to resonate with audiences of all ages. Born in an era where women struggled for equality-a conversation that continues today-and carrying the burden of years of a traumatic childhood, she was a true pioneer and survivor to her core. What she accomplished as a woman, and as an artist, is nothing short of extraordinary. Her vast and varied catalog of songs flourished from such longevity in the music business: she recorded more than 1,100 masters and over 50 original albums. Her total number of radio broadcast performances is over 800, and her television appearances surpass the 200-mark. Best known for such songs as "Fever," "Why Don't You Do Right," "I'm A Woman" and "Is That All There Is?," she amassed over 100 chart entries beginning with "I Got It Bad" (1941) and culminating, to date, with the posthumous hit "Similau" (2017). Among the myriad music honors bestowed upon Lee are 13 GRAMMYR Award nominations, a GRAMMY win in 1969, and a Lifetime Achievement Award in 1995.Omnivore Recordings and Peggy Lee Associates are proud to announce the April 9th release of Something Wonderful: Peggy Lee Sings The Great American Songbook. Compiled to accompany the 2020 PBS documentary, Fever: The Music Of Peggy Lee, this 2-CD, 4
