Fingerprints Music

Gentle, erotic, and powerful-voiced are just a few of the attributes critics worldwide use to describe Peggy Lee's vocals. Long overdue, here comes an album with the greatest recordings of one of the most important US singers in Bear Family's 'Velvet Lounge' series. With this CD release, everyone can be convinced of the versatility and the energy in her voice that fueled her career over and over again for decades. The 30 carefully selected songs on this CD provide a lively cross-section of the various musical genres in which Peggy Lee felt at home. Her career was extremely successful and lasted more than four decades. Our main focus in compiling this album was on Peggy Lee's versatile vocal qualities. The selected recordings date from 1948 to 1962. The repertoire ranges from swing numbers, powerful R&B and rock and roll to beautiful ballads. Remastered with flair, big hits like Fever, Alright Okay You Win or Heart (Corazon) stand next to rare recordings, including an early version of the Dean Martin classic Everybody Loves Somebody. From a rare Snader transcription comes a live version of the classic Why Don't You Do Right?.
