Knock out double from Peggy
on 30 March 2009
You get 150 minutes of Peggy with CD1 having the widest date range of 1941 to 1958 (who would have believed this could be on one CD and adding up to a superb Tony Watts compilation) and CD2 as I mentioned having the 12 inch Black Coffee, Decca 1956 album along with 1957's The Man I Love. Highlights and there really are too many if that's ever possible when talking about "The Queen" as Duke Ellington put it come fast as the opening song "Fever" is the 1958 recording quickly followed up with 1956's Mr Wonderful and the third stop is the stampeding "Lover" dating from 1952. And things carry on with Peggy's finest and most memorable of recordings currently in the public domain. The sound quality is excellent and with such a wide range of source material that is really something to achieve. CD2 is a knock out both for performance and sound quality so if you are looking to replace these classic albums than here is your chance and with the bonus of The Greatest Hits on CD1. The packaging is stunning and the liner notes by Michael Heatley set the scene for a performer never to be forgotten.
