Format: Audio CD
Peggy mixes contemporary material with older songs on these two album, but whatever she sings, she does it her way brilliantly.
The first album, Natural woman, contains covers of All of a sudden my heart sings (Kathryn Grayson - from the movie Anchors aweigh), Don't smoke in bed (Billie Holiday), Can I change my mind (Tyrone Davis), Dock of the bay (Otis Redding), You make me feel like a natural woman (Aretha Franklin), Everyday people (Sly and the family Stone), Please send me someone to love (Percy Mayfield), Spinning wheel (Blood sweat and tears) and I think it's gonna rain today (Randy Newman). May of these are classic songs but Peggy's often-different interpretations bring a freshness to them.
Peggy also contributed a song of her own, Lean on me, which you must not confuse with the famous Bill Withers song of the same title. The only other song here, Living is dying without you, is also excellent though I'm not sure who first recorded it.
The second album, Is that all there is, yielded an unexpected American hit for Peggy. It deserved to be a big hit, of course, but Peggy had long since ceased to be a major force on the singles charts so this one came as a huge surprise. Maybe the song connected with the young people of the day in a way that Peggy's other singles didn't.
Possibly the success of the single created pressure for a quick album release - if so, this would explain the inclusion of songs that Peggy had recorded previously, such as I'm a woman, Something stupid and Don't smoke in bed, though at least some of them are re-recordings. Nevertheless, this is also a fine album.

Peggy Lee was always her own woman, as well being one of the most compelling popular singers of the twentieth century, with a smoky voice and a sassy way with a lyric that was all her own.
These two Capitol LPs from 1969 on one 76-minute disc contain twenty-five tracks in a style that mixes a thoroughly modern sensibility - on songs like Tyrone Davis's very fine soul hit Baby Can I Change My Mind, the Blood Sweat & Tears number Spinning Wheel, Randy Newman's Love Story and his now much-covered I Think It's Gonna Rain Today, Something and Somethin' Stupid - and the occasional standard such as Me and My Shadow, Don't Smoke in Bed, and Billie Holiday's Don't Explain.
Even Otis Redding's Dock of the Bay sounds authentic, such is Lee's sheer class and commitment to her material.
The title track of the first of the two LPs suits her down to the ground, since a Natural Woman is exactly what Peggy was, while the astonishing Is That All There Is must by now count as a classic.
Peggy Lee had a disarming way with a song, sounding both vulnerable and intensely 'feminine', as well as nobody's fool, that foggy-day voice seductive and sometimes world-weary, softly saucy, both girlish and fiercely a woman. She even sings Leiber & Stoller's terrific song I'm a Woman, to superb effect.
An unusual Peggy Lee collection, but as essential as almost anything this great lady recorded.

Highly recommended.

Kinda jazzy, very sassy, everyone should have a copy of this - be it to listen to in the car or in the home. You'll sing along, and so will everyone around you too!

While I enjoyed much of this CD of Peggy Lee's work I felt that a more morose side of this singer was highlighted. It was however interesting to hear some lesser known songs. The sound quality was good and I feel that I know a little more of Peggy Lee's repertoire.

A good album of Peggy Lee's Hits and not so big hits. Her version of Sitting On The Dock Of The Bay, good and other songs sung by different artists Peggy Lee makes pleasurable tolisten to.
