CD Reviews

Tampering With The Original
NYC Music Lover | New York, NY United States | 01/11/2005
(3 out of 5 stars)

""Norma Deloris Egstrom..." was one of Peggy's best albums, hands-down.
A beautifully produced, well-sung collection of songs that while
very pop-oriented (for the time) fit Peggy like a glove. BUT,
several of the songs on this reissue CD are NOT the original
versions. They are alternate takes, that while good, pale
in comparison to the ones on the original LP. Whether the CD's
producers didn't realize this, or could not find the originals,
or didn't care, this is a rather large disappointment to anyone
who enjoyed the REAL "Norma, etc." album back in 1972."
Norma Egstrom is Pegg's Last & Best on Capitol.
Richard Meyer | Woodbridge,VA | 12/01/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"After Peggy's long bout with Capitol she performed a grand finale of superb jazz oriented tunes backed what sounds like a beautiful orehestra.Her version Song For You is unsurpassed even by McRae or R Charles;the violins & orchestral backing & what sounds like a musical piano metronome behind while she sings in her whistful-mellow way will blow you away. The song Razor is a sequel to her hit Fever is fantastic.There is absolutely not one cut bad on it.Just sit back listen & absorb the rich music.I can remember wearing out the record. Get this;you will not be sorry."
You Can Love Me Like I am, or Good-bye

(5 out of 5 stars)

"Both of the albums included here are superb. I prefer Norma Deloris Egstrom from Jamestown North Dakota - it's the later of the two.
While Peggy Lee's singing can never be faulted, sometimes her recordings from the 60's - 70's can sound dated, kitsch and brash. That is not the case here. Practically every cut is a dream, and the orchestrations do not overwhelm with "local color" and novelty. I also want to point out that the B&W cover photgraph of Norma Deloris Egstrom is a stunner. This one's a keeper. The song Razor is sublime. Enjoy."
