A 10 for the production quality. This sounds like something that would be used to check out a high end audio system.

But i would give a ten to the Elvis live version from 1973 (Aloha from Hawaii)

Peggy,  it's not a fever you got. Nowadays we call it Chlamydia and a course of Penicillin will cure it.

  does it sound like before or after 1960? here's what wiki says

In May 1958, Peggy Lee recorded a cover version of the song in Hollywood, which featured significantly rewritten lyrics composed by Lee herself without credit. "Fever" was not included on Lee's album Things Are Swingin' when it was first released in 1959; however it was listed as a bonus track on its 2004 reissue release. The uncopyrighted lyrics by Lee featured historical invokings (including the verses beginning "Romeo loved Juliet," and "Captain Smith and Pocahontas") are now generally thought of as a standard part of the song, and have been included in most subsequent covers of "Fever".

Lee's cover, most likely arranged by the singer herself (despite the official credit to conductor Jack Marshall) was a more slow-tempo version than the original; it was described as being in "torchy lounge" mode, accompanied only by bass (played by Joe Mondragon) and a very limited drum set (played in part with fingers by Shelly Manne), while the finger snaps were provided by the singer herself, by Howard Roberts, the guitarist for the date, who set aside his guitar for this number, or possibly even by the producer, Dave Cavanaugh. Lee's rendition was further described as "smooth, sultry". It is written in the key of A Minor in a medium swing tempo with 135 beats per minute; Lee's vocals span from the musical note of G3 to B4.

For me, it's a perfect 10. Never get tired of this. Every detail is just right

That sounds sweet!  Hadn't heard this version before.  Don't know how I missed it.

She owns this... The others who do this song are always in comparison...All do it well, but this version is slowed just right for her voice

 
the next best is the Cramps version. No one owns it like Lux.

and in many cultures such a song, and such honesty is forbidden. Sad.
