One Of The Greatest Pop Song Stylists On Vinyl LP!
Capitol Records' 75th Anniversary Vinyl LP
Is That All There Is? is a 1969 studio album by Peggy Lee, featuring
arrangements by Randy Newman. The eponymous title track won Lee the Grammy Award
for Best Contemporary Vocal Performance, Female at the 12th Grammy Awards.
Now available as a single LP on standard weight vinyl in celebration of Capitol
Records’ 75th anniversary.
"Everything on this LP is a gem, and that includes a moody remake of Lee's
1940s hit 'Don't Smoke in Bed' as well as classic arrangements of George
Harrison's 'Something,' Neil Diamond's 'Brother Love's Traveling Salvation
Show,' Leiber & Stoller's 'I'm a Woman,' and Randy Newman's 'Love Story.'" The
LP's centerpiece, however, is Newman's hit arrangement of Leiber & Stoller's
title song, which was covered by P.J. Harvey in the 1990s. Influenced by German
cabaret, this half-spoken, half-sung treasure is as hauntingly soulful as it is
maudlin. The song's outlook is far from optimistic; essentially, it's saying
that we might as well grab our moments of pleasure and enjoyment where we can
find them because ultimately, life is nothing more than a meaningless series of
disappointments. But there's nothing disappointing about Is That All There Is?,
an LP that is most certainly among Lee's finest accomplishments." - Alex
