At four discs, this enchanting boxed set—lovingly remixed/remastered and coordinated by, respectively, Cy Godfrey and Steve Woof—shines the light brightly on Norma Deloris Egstrom, who later became known the world over as Peggy Lee. Culling music from the artist's many labels (Columbia, Capitol, Decca, and A&M, among others), as well as showcasing several previously unreleased surprises, The Singles Collection is an obvious must for ardent fans and offers a very fine introduction to those just discovering Lee. Highlights are aplenty, with "Why Don't You Do Right" (with the Benny Goodman Orchestra), "I Don't Know Enough About You," "I'm Lookin out the Window," and naturally, "Is That all There Is?" and "Fever" leading the way. The set's 72-page booklet—with sumptuous photos, album artwork, and Will Friedwald-penned notes—makes a great set even greater.—MP
