Beauty and the Beat - 1959

Review by John Bush
Upon its first release Beauty and the Beat! was billed as a live recording from a Miami convention of disc jockeys. Though Peggy Lee and George Shearing did in fact perform there (and attempts were made to record them for later release), the songs heard on the subsequent LP were recorded in the studio and overdubbed with rather obvious canned applause, announcements, and even post-production echo. Lee and Shearing, who had never recorded before, conceived a set of completely new arrangements that played to their strengths: stately blues and effervescent swing. The best of the former comes on a pair of locale-referencing quasi-blues, "I Lost My Sugar in Salt Lake City" and "You Came a Long Way From St. Louis," both of which Lee and Shearing are able to transform into languorous, respectable torch songs. The usually downcast "Blue Prelude" is actually taken at a laissez faire tempo that Lee treats well, and the original set ends with "Get Out of Town" and "Satin Doll," a pair of bemused, affectionate performances that perfectly suit the pair. Lee and Shearing's only collaboration on record — though both would occasionally perform together thereafter — is a supremely chilled session of late-night blues from two masters of the form.

"I'm A Woman" arranged by Mike Stoller and Benny Carter
-- originally issued as Capitol single [1962]

"Is That All There Is?" arranged and conducted by Randy Newman
-- originally issued as Capitol single [1969]


In 1975, the incomparable Peggy Lee recorded an album for A&M called MIRRORS,
written and produced by the legendary Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller. MIRRORS —
a follow-up to the phenomenal success of "Is That All There Is?" — sought to
place Lee in the role of an American Edith Piaf, with songs that were more
reflective and mature than the pop hits that had thrust both Lee and
Leiber & Stoller into the limelight.

While both the writer/producers and the performer considered MIRRORS to be
some of their finest work, the recording has nonetheless been long unavailable
in any format. Moreover, Leiber & Stoller were never satisfied that the
original mixes did full justice to the songs, or to Lee.

Now, thirty years later, the renowned duo has gone back to the original
multitrack tapes and remixed the entire album in the digital domain,
realizing the sound they had always intended. Complete with newly remastered
versions of all the Leiber & Stoller hits that Peggy Lee recorded in the
Capitol era, two previously unreleased outtakes from the MIRRORS sessions,
and extensive liner notes from remix producer Peter Stoller, MIRRORS has been
transformed into the centerpiece of this comprehensive, and essential, compilation.
