Sea Shells

Sea Shells

[see-shel]

Sea Shells is a 1957 album (see 1957 in music) by Peggy Lee, recorded in early 1955.

The album was possibly thought by her record company to be too esoteric, hence its later release. It was her last recording for Decca Records. The album is considered one of Miss Lee's more personal records, featuring a mix of love ballads and poems. Peggy also wrote her own liner notes for the release.
