Peggy Lee

The Best of The Singles Collection (UK version)

Released November 10, 2003


EMI 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. The Best of The Singles Collection also offers the first release of Gabin’s long-version “Fever” remix, which was commissioned by EMI for this project.

Note to collectors: The UK version of The Best of The Singles Collection contains three tracks not found on the American version that was released in June, 2003. These are “Till There Was You,” “Always True to You in My Fashion” (a previously unreleased version that was genuinely recorded live in Miami for Beauty and the Beat! — unlike all previous vinyl and CD versions), and the long version of Gabin’s “Fever” remix.
