In 1957, Peggy Lee returned to Capitol, the label that she considered her alma mater. By then she was a mature artist with a fully developed, insinuatingly attractive and individual style. The vocalist had spent eight years (1944-1951) at Capitol Records, and after a time with Decca, would go on to spend fifteen more at Capitol (1957-1972). One of her favorite arrangers and conductors on this second stint was Jack Marshall, who was co-responsible of Peggy’s biggest hit, Fever.

In 1958 and 1959, she asked Marshall to write for groups of different styles—some had strings and deftly used trombones, others were swinging or Latin flavored small groups. Their collaboration —aside from the top-selling “Latin a la Lee!,” not included in this set— resulted in two of Peggy’s best albums, “Things Are Swingin’” and “I Like Men!,” as well as all the single tracks arranged by Jack Marshall during this period. She swung rhythm tunes in her inimitable manner, emphasizing in the right places and coming up with a surprising turn or two where least expected.

She sings about her men, too, with a mix of simplicity and seductiveness, and belts out the blues, earthy and down home in feeling, sustaining a mood as effectively as she does on the ballads. They are clever, nicely crafted scores, and Peggy Lee is in fine voice and spirit, employing her full range, vocally and emotionally, and her flirtatious sense humor.
