For most of her career, Peggy recorded for Capitol but there was a five-year spell during which Peggy recorded for Decca because Peggy had a major disagreement with Capitol (over the song Lover, which Capitol didn't want her to record) and switched labels in 1952 although she switched back in 1957. Thus, this compilation focuses on Peggy's recordings between 1952 and 1956. Budget priced collection of great hits from the late singer/songwriter's years recording for the Decca Records label. Includes the title track (covered by k.d. lang a generation later), "Love Letters", "Baubles, Bangles & Beads", "Mister Wonderful", "Bye Bye Blackbird", "Sans Souci", "He Needs Me" and many other greats.
