Notes

Peggy Lee's name does not appear on the cover of this album. Its title refers to her given name and birthplace.

The recording sessions for this album took place in Los Angeles.

During the sessions for this album, Lee also recorded the song "It Changes," which was written by Robert and Richard Sherman for the 1972 Peanuts film Snoopy Come Home. "It Changes" was left off the original 1972 LP, but added to a 2004 U.K. compact disc reissue of the album by EMI.

The album received a modestly positive review in Stereo Review in October 1973. The reviewer, Peter Reilly, wrote: "By the standards Peggy Lee herself has set (no others can take her measure), the new album isn’t particularly outstanding. But, as always, there are three or four stunning bands – 'I’ll Be Seeing You,' 'I’ll Get By' and 'Someone Who Cares' here – that reach the highest level of her accomplishments, and that is high indeed." [1]

Capitol Records released "Love Song" (backed by "Someone Who Cares") as a 45" single in 1972. It was a minor hit, spending four weeks on the Billboard Easy Listening chart and peaking at #34 in October 1972. It was also Lee's last single for Capitol, nearly three decades after she released her first on the label. [2]

After finishing Norma Deloris Egstrom, Lee is not known to have made any more studio recordings until two years later, when she recorded "Let's Love" (written for her by Paul McCartney) for Atlantic Records in April 1974.

To the ire of Lee's fans, the 2004 EMI reissue of this album contains a number of alternate takes that are not identified as such on the packaging. This was reportedly done because the album's original master recordings have disappeared. [3]
