1997 release, a two-on-one (and part of EMI's Centenary series) for this pair of 1960 albums by the songstress, eachwith a bonus track! 'Latin Ala Lee!' adds ''Till There Was You'; 'Ole Ala Lee!' adds 'Together Wherever We Go'. 24 tracks total.
These two 1960 releases offer an ingenious mixture–swinging Latin rhythms popular in the late '50s and early '60s, and the rhythmical perfection of Peggy Lee. When these songs were recorded, Lee was already the toast of the world. Having proved herself early on in the Benny Goodman orchestra she then started writing her own songs, raked in hit after hit, and became a celebrated actress. It seems appropriate that the selection of songs from "Ole Ala Lee!" should be favorites from the musical theater.
