8/ Mirrors PEGGY LEE
Wins for best arrangements, written and produced by Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller, contains “Is That All There Is”, that I have sung occasionnally live along the last 25 years. Lush. Very different from the other Peggy Lee stuff. Darker. More Europeean. Apparently David Bowie’s favorite album. Every song is a gem . Love the tango on it. Feels like I’m there. Of course I also like Marlene Dietrich as well,Mae West, Eartha Kitt and other lain american goodies, but this is really really special, go and get yourself a copy. Sophistication of the highest level.
