The Fabulous Peggy Lee


Autumn In Rome

The Fabulous Peggy Lee
Decca Records DL 74461

From the back cover: There once was a little girl from Jamestown, North Dakota named Norma Dolores Egstrom who wanted to sing. So she sang in various little clubs in the Midwest and on the Coast and in 1941 was discovered by Benny Goodman. A year later, Miss Egstrom, now Peggy Lee, recorded a Lil Green blues with Benny called Why Don't You Do Right? and she was on her way.

From Billboard - May 23, 1964: This is Decca's vocalist month and this is bound to be one of its most attractive reissues, not because of the songs - there are few hits here - but because Peggy can hardly do less than love a lyric. The backings, like the ages of these tracks, range from Dave Barbour through Sy Oliver to Victor  Young or vice versa.
