This Capitol/EMI reissue collects a pair of Peggy Lee LPs from the mid-'60s: 1965's Pass Me By and the following year's Big $pender. Nobody would confuse these records with the best of Lee's career; the arrangements are slanted toward the burgeoning rock crossover, and her vocals constantly stray from sublime to slightly weak. Highlights are definitely there for the choosing, however, including the opener "Sneakin' Up on You" and "Quiet Nights" from Pass Me By, and "Let's Fall in Love" from the latter record.

## 1 -11 "Pass Me By" Capitol 1965

Capitol aimed songs from Pass Me By at several different markets, and the effect is a scattershot LP with several nuggets but no real cohesion. First up is the delightfully tossed-off popcorn tune "Sneakin' Up on You," but it's followed by the title track, a queasy strike-up-the-band march which surprisingly reached the charts. "Dear Heart" leans toward the countrypolitan sound (it would've fit much better as a vehicle for Charlie Rich), and the Beatles cover "A Hard Day's Night" wasn't a good match at all; Lee strains to hit the lower notes, and sounds tentative singing the lyrics. While her vocals are on the weak side from a technical standpoint, Lee's interpretive powers are mostly intact, and her flair on "Sneakin' Up on You" makes it a natural for one of those swinging novelties often heard on '60s compilations.

## 12-22 "Big $pender" Capitol 1966

Blending a couple of then-current show tunes with older classics of the big band form, Peggy Lee's 1966 LP Big $pender occasionally rose its head above the level of kitsch - and much more so than 1965's Pass Me By. It's tough to blame Lee herself; while the arrangements (including work by Dave Grusin and Bill Holman) are mostly successful, again and again the accompaniment descends into rote repetition of the usual rock motifs. The blaring brass of the title track make it a highlight, though, and Lee sounds positively jubilant while singing a genuine standard ("Let's Fall in Love") over a conservative arrangement.
