As Peggy Lee’s (self-proclaimed) biggest fan, I’ve been happy to see Starbucks‘ new Peggy Lee CD, part of its Opus Collection, in Starbucks stores or coffee shops or whatever they are for several weeks now. But I didn’t realize what a big hit it’s been. "Come Rain or Come Shine" debuted at number 51 on the Billboard 200 list, the first time a Peggy Lee album has charted since 1970.
I take back all of the nasty things I’ve said about Starbucks over the years. Most of them, anyway. At least for now.
