Peggy Lee (born Norma Deloris Egstrom; May 26, 1920 – January 21, 2002) was an American jazz and popular music singer, songwriter, composer and actress, in a career spanning six decades. From her beginning as a vocalist on local radio to singing with Benny Goodman's big band, she forged a sophisticated persona, evolving into a multi-faceted artist and performer. She wrote music for films, acted, and created conceptual record albums—encompassing poetry, jazz, chamber pop, and art songs.

AllMusic Review by

A second reissue in four years of Peggy Lee's 1962 greatest-hits volume, Capitol's release of Bewitching-Lee! boasts remastered sound and three bonus tracks, including an especially breathy version of "Unforgettable" and "I'm a Woman." The emphasis is squarely on her hits of the mid-'40s and early '50s, with several of her war-era hits with the Goodman band ("It's a Good Day," "Why Don't You Do Right," "I Don't Know Enough About You") as well as the solo classics "Fever" and "Mañana (Is Soon Enough for Me)."
