Golden Earrings is a triumph that recalls the past glory of classic guitar-vocal duets like Les Paul and Mary Ford or Joe Pass and Ella Fitzgerald. This intimate and inspired series of duets effectively pays twin tributes. Initially conceived by jazz singer Laura Theodore as a tribute to the revered vocalist and popular music icon Peggy Lee, whose alluring, "cool" style captivated listeners through the '40s, '50s and '60s, it also stands as a tribute to the late guitar great Joe Beck, who passed away on July 22, 2008 at age 62 due to complications from lung cancer. While Theodore may have sparked the notion of interpreting tunes written by the songwriting partnership of Peggy Lee and her guitarist-husband Dave Barbour, it was Beck who came up with the intriguing arrangements and reharmonizations that underscore this winning collaboration.
