As a salute to the music legend, and celebrating Peggy’s landmark 100th birthday, comes a brand new career-spanning collection, Ultimate Peggy Lee. The album, available on CD & 2-LP, features hits and signature songs, including Fever, It’s a Good Day, He’s A Tramp, Big Spender, I’m A Woman and the previously unreleased Try A Little Tenderness.
One of the most important musical influences of the 20th century, Peggy Lee wrote over 200 songs, recorded over 1,100 masters, and had over 100 chart hits throughout her seven-decade career. As one of the world’s first female contemporary singer-songwriters, she co-wrote and sang many of her own hits, most notably He’s A Tramp for Disney’s Lady and the Tramp as well as Mañana and It’s A Good Day. She’s best known for hits Why Don’t You Do Right?, Fever, I’m A Woman, and Is That All There Is?, for which she won the Grammy® for Best Contemporary Female Vocal Performance. A 13-time Grammy® nominee, she received Lifetime Achievement awards from NARAS, ASCAP and The Society of Singers, was inducted into the Songwriter’s Hall of Fame, and earned an Academy Award nomination for Best Supporting Actress in Pete Kelly’s Blues.
