I was just watching some 1969 videos of interviews with Peggy. It still bothers me to this day that she did not record a Mandel song, one I thought would have been a great hit: "I Never Told You", which was mixed with "The Shadow of Your Smile". What a sad thing. PEGGY... what were you thinking? So, Michaela Lombardi records it. It is OK but not as great as Lee's would have been. What I would give to have a recording of Peggy singing that song! OMG!
