Peggy Lee – I’m In Love Again

(click song title above to listen)

Peggy Lee and composer Cy Coleman‘s artistic and personal relationship lasted for decades. From late night parties with pals Cary Grant & Dyan Cannon, to night club sets, tv specials & rewarding recording sessions birthing #1 Pop Hits such as her iconic rendition of Coleman/Fields’ “Big Spender“. Peggy added Cy to a distinguished group of collaborators in Victor Young, Harold Arlen, Duke Ellington, and Johnny Mandel linking her poetic lyrical abilities with Coleman’s compositional wizardry for a string of 1960s Lee-Coleman penned classics like “That’s My Style”, “Then Was Then and Now is Now”, and “That’s What it Takes”.

Lee routinely released two wholly new albums every year at Capitol Records between 1957-1972. This week’s tune is the title track from her first 1964 offering, another Coleman/Lee classic with punchy arrangements by Dick Hazard, Shorty Rogers and Bill Holeman considered some of the finest of her very prolific decade.

Check out this supremely moving 2009 rendition by Missy Higgins!

Missy Higgins – I’m In Love Again

Peggy Lee – justifiably known best as one of the premier vocalists of her time – was an accomplished songwriter, having written the majority of her recorded catalog. Cy Coleman and Lee were not only great friends, but also frequent collaborators… the stunning “I’m In Love Again” is one of their finest – and best known – compositions.

Australian superstar Missy Higgins honored us by performing the song on our tribute album to Cy, The Best Is Yet To Come: The Songs of Cy Coleman. Missy – who has enjoyed considerable success stateside the past few years – delivered an interpretation of the song so powerful, she quite literally made it her own. Her impassioned vocal on this track is jaw-dropping… listen for yourself.

The Best Is Yet To Come: The Songs of Cy Coleman is currently available via Bandcamp – from digital download, to various packages which feature the limited edition 2-disc 180 gram vinyl release. See them all HERE! Note there are only three (3!) ULTRA limited edition packages, which feature the vinyl, two bonus cds, digital download, and a Coleman tribute concert poster signed by Fiona Apple, Nikka Costa and others!

Check out this fan-filmed video of Missy performing the tune at San Francisco’s legendary Filmore Theater.
