Fever: The Life and Music of Miss Peggy Lee

Miss Peggy Lee never achieved the same recognition as her pals Frank Sinatra and Bing Crosby. This compelling portrait of the artist tries to rectify this. Loud and clear. And in hot pink. Check out this live performance of "Fever" from 1958. It's shot off of a TV monitor so the sound and video is bad. But that just gives it a cool quality that enhances her hot performance.

I just posted my list of favorite female singers today, (Peggy Lee was my #1) And last saturday was my post on top male crooners. Interested in your perspective. Stop by and say hi sometime.
