Peggy Lee’s laser-beam focus and ability to cast a spell are famously mesmerizing, even when she has only a couple of minutes to make her statement.  Her signature seductive husky-sweet, infinitely expressive voice contains a wealth of texture and nuance that is still as captivating as always.

This album contains rare, intimate renditions giving the listener a chance to hear those small-group club charts, some of which are pared-down versions of Peggy Lee’s lavishly arranged Decca recordings.  This historical recording  which shed a rare light on this period of her magnificent career was made in 1948 on 78 rpm acetate for the World Program Service and was brilliantly restored from the master by 2xHD’s FUSION mastering system.

“…a beautiful sounding 1948 recording of Peggy Lee, rescued from acetate masters on which the noise level was unacceptable until (2xHD’s) René (Laflamme & André Perry) stepped in, left me in a state of
wow.”

TECHNICAL INFORMATION
 
2xHD is a record label which uses its proprietary system to process music masters originally recorded in analog or DSD or other format, to DSD in order to produce a unique listening experience. In this particular case, a transcription from the original 78 rpm acetate.

The process uses a selection from a pool of high-end audiophile components and connectors.  In some cases even using battery power, so as to benefit from the cleanest power source possible.  This variable equipment combination custom tailored to each project, creates the most accurate reproduction of the original recording, unveiling informaton previously masked by the use of EQ, transformers, patch bays, extended cable length etc.  The selection of components is critical, as many A/D and D/A converters are unable to pierce through these filters that create a ceiling effect to the sound.  The 2xHD system preserves the dynamics of the original master and provides an open feeling to the sound.

2xHD was created by producer/studio owner André Perry and audiophile sound engineer René Laflamme, two dedicated music lovers determined to experience only the warmth and depth of the music without hearing the equipment.
