Connery and Bond, peaches and cream, Peggy Lee and George Shearing! They are marriages made in heaven.
I owned this album on vinyl when it had the canned applause and faux intros and I have to admit that I was a little bit disappointed to discover that the CD lacks those particular, er, enhancements. I soon got over it, though.
This is a wonderful album, packed with magical performances of superb arrangements of great songs. I have my own favourite tracks but I won't bore you by listing those. Instead, let me say that I get a sort of musical hard-on, just anticipating the delights that will follow a look at the track-list. Note, here that 'Mambo in Miami' and 'Satin Doll' are instrumentals but don't feel cheated - they fit in well with the album's original concert concept and 'Satin Doll' in particular is wonderful stuff.
Every track is a gem and it's my all-time favourite Peggy Lee set. Buy this album. Now!
