Peggy Lee Capitol Collectors Series Vol. 1: The Early Years
Peggy Lee credited the big bands with her training, and her sense of rhythm and timing is a testament to these roots. It's after her departure from the big bands that we find her becoming a remarkable and distinctive interpreter of song, as on this CD. These tracks mark her debut as a solo act; they are a world away from her output with the Benny Goodman orchestra.
Many of these 1945-50 recordings were hits, and the success of these songs lies solely with Peggy Lee's vocals. Supported by great backup, it's her soft emotion on "Golden Earrings", "Bali Hai", and "'Deed I Do" that transforms these tunes into more than mere melodies. Certainly Lee seems to have learned something from the great blues singers, Billie Holiday, Mildred Bailey, and Jimmy Rushing, who, like Peggy Lee herself, felt a personal connection to each song they sang.
