Known for her distinctive and sophisticated singing style, between 1942 and 1972 Lee recorded some 592 masters for EMI’s Capitol Records. During that time she had over 70 chart hits and a string of hit albums. In addition she wrote all the lyrics for the songs in Disney’s ‘Lady and The Tramp’ movie and was the voice of four of the film’s characters.

The 22 albums released this week are from Lee’s second stint at Capitol after she took a break from recording between 1952 and 1957: ‘I Like Men!’ (1959), ‘All Aglow Again’ (1960), ‘Pretty Eyes’ (1960), ‘If You Go’ (1961), ‘Basin Street East Proudly Presents Peggy Lee’ (1961), ‘Bewitching Lee’ (1962), ‘I’m A Woman’ (1963), ‘In Love Again!’ (1964), ‘In The Name Of Love’ (1964), ‘Pass Me By’ (1965), ‘That Was Then – This Is Now!’ (1965), ‘Guitars A La Lee’ (1966), ‘Big $pender’ (1966), ‘Extra Special!’ (1967), ‘Somethin’ Groovy!’ (1967), ‘A Natural Woman’ (1969), ‘Is That All There Is?’ (1969), ‘Bridge Over Troubled Water’ (1970), ‘Make It With You’ (1970), ‘Where Did They Go’ (1971), ‘Norma Deloris Egstrom From Jamestown’ (1972), ‘Peggy Lee at Basin Street East: The Unreleased Show’ (2002).
