Watch Two Classic 1960s Peggy Lee Performances from ‘The Ed Sullivan Show’

The Ed Sullivan Show’s official YouTube channel has shared two more classic, rarely-seen performances from Peggy Lee – this time dating from 1961 and 1965…. The earlier of the two Peggy Lee performances, dating from February 12, 1961, features the iconic singer performing a spirited rendition of Kansas Joe McCoy’s “Why Don’t You Do Right?” Now considered a classic “woman’s blues” song, the track has long been recognized as a standard…. In the second new clip, Peggy Lee returns to The Ed Sullivan Show for an episode which first aired on November 7, 1965. In this performance, Lee turns in an especially sassy performance of Alan Jay Lerner and Burton Lane’s “Come Back to Me”, which she had only recently recorded for her album, Big Spender, which would be released by Capitol early in 1966.
