A Work In Progress

As indicated in the page's introductory remarks, the present work is under development -- barely started. Additional notes about the program under discussion will be eventually added to this note.


Original Source

1. Big Night Out Presents Peggy Lee (TV Show)
These performances were taped for a BBC special, made commercially for the first time in the above-seen 2020 DVD release. Additional details forthcoming.


Personnel

1. David Kossoff
This British character actor and recording personality was Peggy Lee's main guest for this show. They get together for a short skit that culminated with their joint singing of "I'm Shy, Mary Ellen, I'm Shy," a song which he had released on EP a year or two before He is also one of the participants in the Cahn & Van Heusen medley. Peggy Lee also accompanies him in a duet of an old song which he had released was a single,

2. Bing Crosby
The Old Groaner is heard at length during the Cahn & Van Heusen medley. Near the end of Peggy Lee's rendition of "All Of You," he also sings, but just for one single line.

3. Sammy Cahn
4. Jimmy van Heusen
The songwriters participates only on the medley of their songs.


Songs

1. Cahn & Van Heusen Medley
This medley is performed right after Lee sings "Life Is For Living," a Cahn & Van Heusen number which they wrote for Lee. The medley consisted of the following songs, amidst which short spoken comments are interspersed:

a) "Three Coins On The Fountain" - Cahn
b) "All The Way" - Lee
c) "Love And Marriage" - Cahn
d) "The Second Time Around" - Lee
e) "Moonlight Becomes You" - Crosby
f) "High Hopes" - Cahn, Crosby, Kossoff, Lee
g) "Life Is For Living" - Lee

Throughout the medley, Van Heusen's piano is the only musical accompaniment. The exception is Lee's solo and closer, a slow reprise of "Life Is For Living," for which she is joined by Victor Feldman on piano.


Photos

Above: In addition to the aforementioned DVD, here is an image of Peggy Lee singing "In Other Words (Fly Me To The Moon)" during the 1961 BBC special Big Night Out. The 1961 special is also the source for the two shots below, one from a skit in which she and David Kossoff interpret "Mary Ellen" (aka "I'm Shy, Mary Ellen, I'm Shy"). The other shot is from a medley of Sammy Cahn and Jimmy Van Heusen songs, featuring Lee, Kossoff, the songwriters themselves, and impromptu guest Bing Crosby.

Screenshots






Stills Shown:

From 1967, this second installment of Something Special With Peggy Lee is the source of an interpretation of "Fever" that has become very popular on YouTube (images on first column). During the same special, Lee also sang a short, abbreviated version of "Big Spender" (second column), as part of a medley. The last column opens with a shot of Peggy Lee in the act of performing "Mañana." The remaining images capture Peggy Lee and her guest Toots Thielemans during their playful, call-and-response approach to "Makin' Whoopee." These are the performances from the 1967 show that were available on YouTube currently (April 2012). In the past, members have also uploaded to the site "Unforgettable," "Things Are Swingin' ," as well as a few other numbers from this hour-long show.

Crossreferences

I have only partial details about the televised version of this Peggy Lee show. I presume it to have been an edited version of the actual concert -- a version fitting within an one-hour-long slot. If so, only a portion of the full concert would have been televised. Thanks to a New York Times review published on August 31, 1984, I know that the aired performances included "Fever", "Is That All There Is?", "Why Don't You Do Right?", "Mañana", "The Folks Who Live On The Hill", "As Time Goes By", and "I'll Be Seeing You." For information about the full concert, including songs not released on videotape and thus unissued, consult this discography's concert page.
