CD Reviews

Lavishly Orchestrated Classic Album
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This CD offers the chance to gain one of the two Volumes to this Dateless Album which is SUPERB, with a full-on lavish orchestra (conducted by Frank DeVol) and a total of 12 diamond songs (by I Berlin, G Gershwin, C Porter etc) all perfectly & intimately interpreted & sung like NO other singer can !!! Highlights are "In the still of the night", "Night & Day". This is one of Doris's Finest Albums !!! It's also worth noting both volumes are available in the UK on one terrific 24 track CD"
One of the finest renditions of Over The Rainbow ever...
Billie Holiday reincarneted | The stars | 11/13/2004
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This entire cd is a gem, and was one of Day's best all around long playing albums that she cut for Columbia(the other was "Duet" with Andre Previn). This finds Day relaxed and swinging, and sincere as ever. She gives one of the most heartfelt and natural renditions of Over The Rainbow ever, the only version that might be better is Al Bowlly's version. When it comes to analizing Over The Rainbow, it seems people are "showy" when they sing it, like Garland or even recently Monheit, however the song is simple and prettiest when sung directly like here. Also Day does splendid versions of The Way You Look Tonight and I'll Remember April. A pleasant listen, and difinitive treatments of standards by Day and De Vol's classy if somewhat annynomous arrangements."
Wonderful Album

"I LOVE this album. As others have stated, the singing of Doris Day is extremely underrated. This album reflects the sensuous, "smoky" voice of Ms. Day. As others have asked, though, where is Volume 2? I remember a friend of mine having the double set on vinyl. PLEASE release the second volume.
