2-CD DIGIPACK EDITION

“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.

This 2-CD, 40 song set features dozens of previously unissued performances from Lee’s 1951-1952 radio program. Besides Lee’s renditions of American standard classics, guest songwriters Hoagy Carmichael, Matt Dennis, Frank Loesser and Johnny Mercer also make rare duet appearances.

In addition to the fantastic performances, this 2-CD set features new liner notes from The Second Disc’s Joe Marchese and Restoration and Mastering from multiple Grammy®-winning Engineer Michael Graves.
