This is NOT the Calamity Jane Soundtrack!
(3 out of 5 stars)
"This is a good CD, but if you are looking for the original soundtrack recordings from Calamity Jane, you will be disappointed. It should be entitled, "Doris Day Sings Songs from Calamity Jane.""
World-wide Hit & Top Soundtrack !
(5 out of 5 stars)
"These soundtracks CALAMITY JANE backed with THE PAJAMA GAME are fine examples of Doris in the 50s ! Apart from the US "Love me or leave me" Soundtrack CD this is the ultimate one to have. CALAMITY..... features her million selling international hit "Secret Love" as well as other now trade-mark songs of Doris in her role as the wild west's fiery, loveable lady (which also features the voice of Howard Keel). As for PAJAMA..... it's a lively musical combining Doris's strong vocals with a chorus of singers from the movie and who could forget "I'm not at all in love"."
There are better versions of both albums on other labels

"Two fine scores and good idea of pairing them...but both have been given better sounding transfers on other Cds.The Columbia Records 10-inch Lp of CALAMITY JANE contained 8 tracks (all of them are on this CD.) 4 of the tracks ("The Deadwood Stage", "I Can Do Without You", "Higher Than a Hawk" and "Secret Love") are taken from the film soundtrack. The other 4 songs are studio recordings by Doris Day. This was probably done to keep album costs down, since she was already under contract to Columbia and they could avoid paying the re-use fees for the other singers. Example: "'Tis Harry I'm Plannin' to Marry" is not sung in the film by Doris Day - It is sung by Allyn McLearie (ane never sung complete.) "The Black Hills of Dakota" is sung in the film as a quartet, and "A Woman's Touch" is a duet. The versions recorded here are solos. Ths was common with many of the other Columbia so-called "soundtrack" albums including RED GARTERS, LULLABY OF BROADWAY and I'LL SEE YOU IN MY DREAMS.This Cd transfer has some problems... there is strange crosstalk in "I can Do Without You" that sounds like another tape being rewound backwards at fast speed. And there is a skip (!) in Howard Keel's "Higher Than a Hawk.THE PAJAMA GAME, on the other hand, was a 12-inch Lp with all the tracks taken right from the soundtrack. When this collection was first released on Lp in the late 1970s, three songs from THE PAJAMA GAME were dropped to fit the program on one side. Those three tracks are added here as "bonus tracks" but not in their proper place. ("Hey There" comes after "I'll Never be Jealous Again:; "Steam Heat" after "There Once Was a Man" and "7 1/2 Cents" after "Hernando's Hidaway.")THE PAJAMA GAME has been given an even better CD transfer on the Collectables label."
