Peggy Lee

The Best of The Singles Collection (US version)

KCRW, Southern California’s NPR flagship station, chooses The Best of The Singles Collection as one of its DJ Picks for both September and October

Capitol, US (72435-82680-2-7)
Released June 10, 2003

Capitol Records presents highlights from the Grammy-nominated, four-CD anthology The Singles Collection, which was released in late 2002. (For details on the four-disc set, click here.) The Best of The Singles Collection features both well-known hits and long-unavailable treasures spanning 25 years, from 1944’s “You Was Right, Baby” (one of the earliest Peggy Lee/Dave Barbour compositions) to Peggy’s Grammy-winning signature song “Is That All There Is?” and her striking cover of George Harrison’s “Something,” both from 1969. “Something” was remixed especially for this release and sounds better than ever. The Best of The Singles Collection also contains the first release of Gabin’s remix of “Fever,” which was commissioned by EMI for this album.
