The first, arranged by Nelson Riddle and conducted by Frank Sinatra (an interesting combination that works well) was recorded in 1957. An earlier reviewer on the USA site suggests that Peggy was then just an up-and-coming singer, but all true Peggy fans know that she began her career with Benny Goodman in 1941 and went on to become a major solo singer of the late forties and early fifties, so she was firmly established by 1957.
That 1957 album opens with The man I love, written by George and Ira Gershwin and is filled with songs from the Great American Songbook, some of them obscure, but including That's all and Something wonderful. It closes with a song that is always identified with Peggy - The folks who live on the hill.
The second album was recorded in 1961 and was arranged and conducted by Quincy Jones - yes, the same man who produced many of Lesley Gore's records including It's my party, and achieved worldwide fame as producer of Michael Jackson's Thriller, among many other things.
This is another collection of songs from the Great American Songbook, the most famous being As time goes by, I get along without you very well and Smile.
Just a warning - don't play this if you're tired - you might fall asleep! At no stage does the tempo rise very much - every song here was selected to showcase Peggy's sexy, seductive voice at it's most romantic. There are some albums on which Peggy likes to swing a bit, but you won't find any of that here. Try Pass me by/Big spender if you want something more upbeat.
Get in a romantic mood - buy this.
