A LEGEND LIVES ON! 16 July 2001
By Old Legend Lover - Published on
Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
When I first purchased this album in 1979, I realized that the once magical voice semed a little 'tired.' I would travel that same path eventually with Liza, but it hadn't happened yet.....and while I looked in the mirror and certainly recognized that I had aged and 'deteriorated' (so to speak) I never expected that the same thing could happen to a LEGEND. Ah does happen, even to the greatest of them....even to Peggy Lee.
But with that said, I gotta tell you this.....her rendition of 'Rain Sometimes' on this album is hauntingly beautiful, obviously delivered from her heart and soul, and is so touching and meaningful that is has become "Our Song" for my wife and me. Equally as 'personal' is 'Come In From The Rain'.....which was played at our son's wedding.
One reviewer talked about 'Peggy Lee Sings Rare Songs By Harold Arlen' from 1988 (which I couldn't find listed anywhere.....someone write to me about that one!) and another spoke highly of 'Moments Like This' from 1992. I stopped collecting in 1979 with 'Close Enough For Love,' but if Peggy's newer version of 'The Folks Who Live On The Hill' (from 'Moments Like This') even comes close to evoking the sentiment and melancholy I feel when listening to her supreme delivery of that classic love song on 'The Man I Love' CD (with orchestra conducted by Frank Sinatra, no less!) I'm going to order the newer one soon as I stop typing!

This new remastered version of "CLOSE ENOUGH FOR LOVE" clarifies
some of the more subtle nuances of Miss Lee's perfect vocal rendition of every song included.As always and forever Peggy can do nothing but sing what is her heart and soul.The beautiful qualities of a life lived reflected in ones's art becomes more substantial and poignant as time passes.This collection should not be missed by any person who can honestly and lovingly feel the spirit of Miss Peggy Lee.

Unreal 11 April 2004
By A Customer - Published on
Format: Audio CD
An absolutely incredible album. Fans of all genres ought to get this. Like Flaming Lips, you'll dig this. Beck? Tierney Sutton? Bonnie Raitt? Billie Holiday? You will love this. This is just great music. Her voice is lollying about, almost about to slip out of the tune, only to smooth itself back in. Incredible. The band deserves some praise too, fine licks and an electric groove. If I could buy it for you, I would.

Not your typical Peggy Lee but fun nonetheless. 22 Jun. 2002
By Katie - Published on
Format: Audio CD
This is NOT the Peggy Lee you know. No 'Fever', no 'Is That All There Is?', no 'Surrey With The Fringe On Top' set to a mambo score. If you're looking for a classic recording of Lee's well known songs, stick to a Best Of collection. This album was recorded in 1979 and has a distinctly post-disco Donna Summer flavor to it. Frantic bass, high hats and wah pedals - wah pedals! - abound, resulting in a deliciously campy and surprisingly sexy representation of Peggy nearing sexagenarian status. And no, she was not too old to sing!

Peggy Lee recorded a number of fine major label LP'S in the seventies that are masterful collections filled with unique and brilliant performances featuring extravagant productions arranged by legendary greats working with a full orchestra so this small label gem was quite a change for the legendary diva although first-rate arranger Richard Hazard at the helm doing a fine job with the small but very fine group giving this intimate collection a full and rich sound which perfectly frames Peggy's gorgeous vocals. Miss Lee was more than up to the challenge of working in a scaled down production as these sublime & mesmerizing vocals are filled with color and soul and Peggy achieved creating another classic set that would have had great success in better musical times than the bland & musically stale 1980 which no longer celebrated great talent on the airwaves and this poor programming situation with no imagination or interest in great talent helped bring about the sad state of the music industry today which has been floundering for years and with closure of all the major music chains it is not a surprise! In the great musically rich 50's & 60's one could tell radio was programmed by those who loved talent and a wide array of artists were featured in the Top 40 which is not true today. In the seventies this change started as radio programmers seemed to want to create trends and take complete control of what made it to the airwaves so established talent no longer ruled and there was not a thing anyone could do about this...problem is fan base weakened as artists with great talent no longer being promoted and this sad situation created a situation where many great singers no longer had recording contracts so it made it seem no longer "cool" to have talent. A house built on sand doesn't stand for long and that is what has happened to American Music, hense the closure of major music stores across the country...when will they ever learn?
This winning collection has a pop/jazz feel and Peggy tackles a wide array of songs from composer's such as Tom Snow, Johnny Mandel, Paul Williams, Michael Franks, Cole Porter, Melissa Manchester, Carole Bayer Sager, Marvin Hamlisch, and a few self-penned songs show Peggy Lee as the original singer/songwriter whose work is legendary! Moods vary brilliantly from song to song with The Diva in fine voice and the mesmerizing gorgeous finale "Rain Sometimes" composed by Oscar Winning composer Arthur Hamilton is both haunting and unforgettable and so is the lady. Bravo Peggy!!!
