7 of 7 people found the following review helpful By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAMETOP 50 REVIEWER on 23 Oct 2002
Format: Audio CD
These two albums from the fifties swing very nicely at a good mid-tempo. Peggy wrote It's a good good day herself. Apart from that song, you will find Peggy singing plenty of songs from the Great American Songbook. In choosing songs to cover, Peggy likes to select less obvious songs, and there are plenty of those here, but there are also some well known songs, including Cheek to cheek, What a little moonlight can do and You're getting to be a habit with me.
Perhaps the real surprise here is Music! musuc! music!. I know that some (not all) of Peggy's fans are dismissive of Teresa Brewer, but she recorded a lot of wonderful songs and it's good to hear Peggy sing this classic. Peggy's swinging version is slow compared to Teresa's rocking version, but it works very vell. I'm not going to say that one version is better than the other - they are each brilliant in their own way.
These albums are generally more upbeat than usual for Peggy, who performs every song impeccably. If you are used to hearing Peggy singing lots of soft, romantic songs, you might be pleasantly surprised by this twofer. I love Peggy singing those songs, but there are plenty of other albums full of them. If you enjoy Peggy singing in a more upbeat style, you should also try Pass me by / Big spender, a pair of upbeat sixties albums which I've also reviewed.
This twofer demonstrates that Peggy was more versatile than some would have you believe. And it's every bit as good as the romantic stuff - just different.

3 of 3 people found the following review helpful By Dr. H. A. Jones TOP 500 REVIEWER on 31 July 2012
Format: Audio CD
These two LPs were originally issued in 1958 by Capitol records. The first has arrangements and backing from Jack Marshall and his orchestra. It features the title song and `It's a good, good night' composed by Lee herself; some standards, like Porter's `Ridin' High', Ellington's `I'm beginning to see the light' and the Arthur Schwartz and Howard Dietz favourite `Alone together'; and some unexpected tracks like Benny Goodman's `Lullaby in rhythm'. Most tracks are up-tempo but there are some slower numbers like Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn's `It's been a long, long time'.
The second album on this single CD has Peggy backed by the Nelson Riddle orchestra. The title song is by Ellington and there are several show tunes here: Jimmy McHugh's `When my sugar walks down the street' from a Cotton Club Revue; `I hear music', from film Dancing On A Dime 1941; `Just in time', from the Broadway show Bells Are Ringing 1956, taken up by Hollywood in a film 1960; and the ever-popular Irving Berlin tune `Cheek to cheek', written for the Astaire Rogers film Top Hat 1935. A most enjoyable selection!

Format: Audio CD Verified Purchase
This is a marvellous collection of classic songs and sang in the effortless and impeccable style of the one and only Peggy Lee.I must admit to not being over familiar with a couple of the tunes but the rest certainly brought back some memories.My Dad was a great late night listener to the old radio Light programme, where many of the compositions on display here were regularly played and although I had forgotten some of the titles the first few bars of the songs soon made the recollections come flooding back.I have also recently bought Peggy Lee's very fine ' Hits Collection ' which obviously has more of her better known numbers on but to get the heart of what Peggy Lee was all about these two albums/LP's put together,are for my money,far superior and a much better bet.

2 in 1--a bargain. It's as fresh as the day and period it was made, 1958. Things really are swingin' and jumping. Good arrangements, great bands and a superb voice.

My three young children (aged 2,5, and 7) and I love this CD, we love singing along on the school run and dancing to it at home.
