Peggy Lee


Peggy Lee: Norma Deloris Egstrom from Jamestown, North Dakota (Expanded Edition)

“[Producer Tom] Catalano and [Peggy] Lee selected songs of current vintage, including two from Leon Russell. One of them, ‘Superstar,’ was already a huge Carpenters hit. Lee put a world-weary, lost-love twist on it and made it hers. She stamped her mature, worldly-wise brand on the then-modern songs, replacing youthful idealism with a deeper perspective on love, relationships, and the arc of a human life. But it’s not heavy; it’s bracing. Superb A-list West Coast session players make [Artie] Butler’s arrangements swing and sparkle.” [Source, Tom Fine, Stereophile]
