5.0 out of 5 stars The best ever Peggy Lee album! 25 Nov 2004
Format:Audio CD
The five stars are for I'm A Woman. It was my first ever Peggy Lee album, purchased on vinyl back in the mid-60s. I had despaired of ever finding it on CD. Fortunately, it was worth the wait. It's simply terrific. A fine remastering job brings out all the nuances of the original performances and produces a musical delight. The songs are great, Peggy has never been in better voice and the arrangements are exquisite. Rather than competing with the subtle vocals, the backing complements perfectly, adding neat guitar and piano flourishes in pieces like Mack the Knife. The second album is a largely disposable item from 1972, but never mind: for my money, I'm A Woman is the best album Peggy ever made.

5.0 out of 5 stars What a woman 21 Mar 2012
By GlynLuke TOP 500 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
No great claims need to be made for these two mid-period Capitol albums by the honey-voiced Peggy Lee, the first from 1963 when she was 43, the later recording from 1972. Peggy is in peak form, as languid and downright sexy as ever, in an almost absurdly eclectic selection of songs.
It`s instructive to listen to her voice when tempted to overpraise some of today`s would-be chanteuses. Peggy effortlessly exudes class, seldom raising her murmourous tones above a natural, mic-friendly level. She simply sings, as she always did.
She was one of the first (and indeed few) singers of her kind to cheerfully embrace post-Beatles pop songs, some of which are here. Her cover of the much-recorded A Song For You, by Leon Russell (which must have put his kids through school) can stand alongside arguably the finest version I`ve heard, by Ray Charles.
One or two songs on the first album don`t sound quite as compelling as perhaps they should, with contrary arrangements that seem to work against the song, but I`m not going to say which ones as other listeners will no doubt disagree, which is as it should be. Besides, Peggy obviously loved to gently wrongfoot her fans, bucking trends and refusing to be pigeonholed.
A highlight, again from the Norma Deloris album, is It Takes Too Long To Live Alone, a wry, perfectly sung mid-tempo ballad on which Ms Lee sounds like she knows exactly of what she speaks. It`s followed by a dramatic reading of Superstar, the Leon Russell/Bonnie Bramlett song, all brass and crashing drums, through which Peggy`s voice sounds pleading and genuinely hurt.
Then comes the classic Just For A Thrill - another song Ray Charles made his own back in the day. Her singing is faultless. When wasn`t it?

5.0 out of 5 stars Two contrasting albums from 1963 and 1972 3 May 2005
By Peter Durward Harris #1 HALL OF FAME TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
The first album here shows Peggy at the peak of her popularity in the early sixties, performing a mix of soft, romantic songs and sultry blues songs, though the dividing line between the two is not always clear-cut. The title track was a major American hit for Peggy but the strength of the album is such that it doesn't really stand out. There are many other fine songs here including The alley cat song, I'm walking, Come rain or come shine and a very impressive interpretation of Mack the knife. You're sick of that song? Listen to Peggy's version - it makes it fresh and exciting. Further classics include I'll get by, I left my heart in San Francisco (another brilliant interpretation) and A taste of honey.
The second album may be an end-of-contract release as it first appeared in 1972, the year in which Peggy left Capitol for the second and last time. Don't let that put you off - while it is not one of Peggy's strongest albums, it is well worth hearing nevertheless. This mellow, romantic album begins with Love song, which was also recorded by Olivia Newton-John. Other contemporary songs include A song for you and Superstar, both written by Leon Russell and recorded by the Carpenters. Older songs are represented by The more I see you and I'll be seeing you. A previously unreleased track, It changes, is added to the album for this release.
This twofer is worth buying for the first album alone, but I suspect that many Peggy Lee fans will (like me) enjoy both albums here.

3.0 out of 5 stars Tampering With The Original 11 Jan 2005
By NYC Music Lover - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
"Norma Deloris Egstrom..." was one of Peggy's best albums, hands-down.

A beautifully produced, well-sung collection of songs that while

very pop-oriented (for the time) fit Peggy like a glove. BUT,

several of the songs on this reissue CD are NOT the original

versions. They are alternate takes, that while good, pale

in comparison to the ones on the original LP. Whether the CD's

producers didn't realize this, or could not find the originals,

or didn't care, this is a rather large disappointment to anyone

who enjoyed the REAL "Norma, etc." album back in 1972.

5.0 out of 5 stars Norma Egstrom is Pegg's Last & Best on Capitol. 1 Dec 2004
By Richard Meyer - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
After Peggy's long bout with Capitol she performed a grand finale of superb jazz oriented tunes backed what sounds like a beautiful orehestra.Her version Song For You is unsurpassed even by McRae or R Charles;the violins & orchestral backing & what sounds like a musical piano metronome behind while she sings in her whistful-mellow way will blow you away. The song Razor is a sequel to her hit Fever is fantastic.There is absolutely not one cut bad on it.Just sit back listen & absorb the rich music.I can remember wearing out the record. Get this;you will not be sorry.

5.0 out of 5 stars Soulful & sublime masterpiece~Bravo Peggy Lee! 5 April 2006
By Bradly Briggs - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
As a sixties teen loving R&B and those legendary great singers, Ms. Peggy Lee always stood out as one of the ultimate sultry Diva's, awesome two-fer Import is the amazing masterpiece baby-boomer fans have been waiting for. "Norma Deloris Egstrom from Jamestown, North Dakota" is the ultimate finally released to CD treasure...why it took so long remains a mystery, clearly nobody at the Capitol Tower has a clue what went on with Peggy Lee or Nancy Wilson throughout the musically bankrupt seventies, thankfully Capitol EMI Import division knew or else sadly this phenomenal release probably would not have happened in our lifetime.
Peggy Lee at her jazzy & sultry best throughout "I'm A Woman", purring out classic great songs such as "Mack The Knife", "A Taste Of Honey" plus her standard classic "I'm A Woman", this terrific jazz flavored gem still being sung by young jazz singing hopefuls in clubs across the country yet nobody compares to the very sensual version found in this magnificent collection. This compelling collection is a lost classic now thankfully available thanks to EMI Import division for all fans of the legendary singer to savor and enjoy.
Next in this wondrous release is lost masterpiece "Norma Deloras Egstrom From Jamestown North Dakota", final Capitol Lp is one of the her finest ever...great opener "Love Song" is a contemporary rhythmic cooker composed by Leslie Duncan, from the top crystal clear Peggy Lee is going to take these contemporary standards and make them completely her own, this sultry and engrossing version is amazingly great and clearly definitive. "Razor (Love Me As I Am) is a hypnotic masterful vocal that should have been a huge hit like "Fever", sadly in the pathetically tired musical seventies this sublime version probably was too great for the airwaves but remains one of this legendary singers all-time greatest seductive performances. "When I Found You" was a big success with fans as a stirring highlight in her great seventies concerts, wonderfully romantic song Peggy belts with power & passion to great effect becoming a stunning Diva turn. Hauntingly brilliant is her glorious Leon Russell "A Song For You", showing Peggy Lee made the transition from classic composers to contemporary with great success...dramatic unreleased "It Changes" is another sublime story telling song echoing Peggy Lee "Grammy Award" winning "Is That All There Is?".
Sentimental melancholy "It Takes Too Long To Learn To Live Alone" is a tender and deeply soulful song that is slightly different take from original release, ultimately not quite as stirring and effective as original on vinyl release. "Superstar" is haunting showing Peggy went deep inside contemporary standards making them her own, this deeply haunting definitive version being a fine example.
"Just For A Thrill" sets the mood for chilled Dom Perigom being another Peggy Lee classic and one of her all time finest, again in better times than the musically bankrupt seventies this sublime gem would have gone to #1 in a flash....ditto in better times than bland musically pathetic seventies, exuberant romantic "Someone Who Cares" with fascinating tempo changes featuring a strong yet sensitive vocal would have become a chart-topping success...collection being one of her greatest ever would have easily received Platinum Disc for sales in the millions, winning multiple deserved "Grammy Awards".
Two golden classics close this priceless set with neither ever sounding quite so gorgeous...ethereal "The More I See You" is tender and sublime as is sentimental and incredibly moving "I'll Be Seeing You", perfectly ending one of the very finest collections from one of the greatest singers of the 20th Century, at her very best throughout this wondrous & sublime collection of magically mesmerizing performances! Bravo Ms. Peggy Lee, love and miss you and RIP great lady of song, nothing finer in the glorious world of music...

5.0 out of 5 stars You Can Love Me Like I am, or Good-bye 14 Jan 2005
By KSG - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
Both of the albums included here are superb. I prefer Norma Deloris Egstrom from Jamestown North Dakota - it's the later of the two.

While Peggy Lee's singing can never be faulted, sometimes her recordings from the 60's - 70's can sound dated, kitsch and brash. That is not the case here. Practically every cut is a dream, and the orchestrations do not overwhelm with "local color" and novelty. I also want to point out that the B&W cover photgraph of Norma Deloris Egstrom is a stunner. This one's a keeper. The song Razor is sublime. Enjoy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Odd Couple That Works 24 Jun 2006
By Mark D. Prouse - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Audio CD
A few years back I found a vinyl copy of NORMA DELORES EGSTROM FROM JAMESTOWN NORTH DAKOTA at a flea market in Albuquerque, N.M. Having loved Peggy Lee all of my life, but never having heard this particular album, I bought it for a buck or so. (I first paid really close attention to Peggy Lee when I was around twelve years old, at an alcoholic neighbor lady's house on my block, where I did chores for pocket change. This overly generous lady, who resembled Phyllis Diller, would drink gin out of a tall paper cup all day long with the drapes closed, and she would let me paw through her LP collection, where I discovered LATIN ALA LEE. In the following weeks, I would play that scratchy record over and over on my besotted host's console stereo). By the time I first heard NORMA DELORES EGSTROM..., I was in my mid-forties (this was around 1997), and was now thoroughly acquainted with most of Ms. Lee's catalog. I put the album on my turntable for the first time with some trepidation, as this great singer's first few post-Capitol albums in the seventies were, to say the least, not among her best efforts. Boy was I surprised! How had this excellent album eluded me for all of those years? Here was a mix of contemporary material mixed with old chestnuts that was handled with the flare of Peggy Lee in her prime, and I could not have been more pleased. The ragged edges and shortness of breath that were beginning to show up in Lee's voice around this time only added to the charm of these performances, and one tune, Leslie Duncan's "Love Song" moved me to tears. "When I Found You" was another standout on this set, gently rocking and confirming once more that Peggy Lee could sing just about anything with class and style. For those who still doubt, pick this "twofer" up and marvel at how Lee handles songs of the younger generation at that time, "Superstar" and "A Song For You." If they weren't already, Peg helped them become new standards. The version of the established standard, "I'll Be Seeing You," on this CD, is now among my very favorite Peggy Lee performances.

Now there's not much I can add to what other reviewers have written here about I'M A WOMAN, an album I've been waiting for years to come out on CD. Peggy's sly, swingin' rendition of "There Ain't No Sweet Man (That's Worth The Salt Of My Tears)" is alone worth the price of admission, but every song here is perfectly sung. One can just see the twinkle in Peggy's eye (and the tongue in her cheek) as she tosses off "Mack The Knife" in a half-whisper at breakneck speed. The sound effects make it fresh and funny, while somehow only enhancing the song's sinister undertones. "A Taste Of Honey" is gorgeous, and "Alley Cat Song" is one of Lee's great signature tunes, along with the title track. Although Rick Nelson's version of "I'm Walkin'" is not threatened by Ms. Lee's take, she makes it shine in her own, effortless way.

Taken together, these two records are a solid set, but are quite different; each could easily stand on its own. One note of caution: as mentioned by others, some of the tracks on NORMA DELORES EGSTROM... are not the same takes that were used on the LP version, and are not quite as polished (although certainly not bad). My guess is that the original masters were lost or were damaged. I was vaguely disappointed, and would have deducted half a star, but Amazon doesn't provide that option to customers, so the five-star rating stands, as these albums should be bought and heard by fans and newbies alike. They're great!
