Synopsis

Product Description
We have a lot of Doris Day experts among our customers, and when they brought to our attention that these two Columbia albums had never been out on CD in this country (and never out as single albums at all), that was all we needed to go a-licensing! But it wasn t just the fact that these records had been hitherto unavailable that spurred us into action; these 1964 and 1962 albums display Doris awesome versatility, as she swings from children-oriented to inspirational material without a catch in her voice. And it s on this nakedly emotional material that her voice and style really shines; Doris had the unique ability to make every song an intimate occasion for the listener. Moving, uplifting, and (on the kids stuff) fun!
 

CD Reviews

She's one of the best!
Richard B. Green | 11/13/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This music has been available as part of an eight-CD set of music recorded by Doris Day in the l960's, which is my favorite Doris Day. This lady is one of the pre-eminent voices of the 20th century, a woman who has such a way with a song, a woman with great respect for the songwriter and the voice she was God-given to interpret the music she lent her voice to. My favorite of the two albums featured here is "With A Smile and a Song." Although some are songs written for, say, a Disney movie, they are also songs that we adults of a certain age grew up with and which retain their appeal all of these years later. If you don't have the 8-CD set, I recommend, as it also contains her recording (with Robert Goulet) of the score of "Annie Get Your Gun" and the soundtrack from "Jumbo," which movie I loved when I saw it, featuring wonderful Doris Day performances. And, if you don't have the Doris Day Christmas album, the original with twelve wonderful songs of Christmas, it too will soon be available in new format for the holidays. It's one of several holiday albums I would rank as among the most satisfying for holiday listening."
A wonderful day for Day addicts

"Compiled to capitalize on her then-current film "Lover Come Back", 'Wonderful Day' was an Imperial Butter give-away never intended to last more than a few months in shoppers' minds, but at long last it's available on CD(coupled with the corny, but sweetly inspiring 'With a Smile & A Song'). Doris is featured in some of her finest movie-music moments on "Never Look Back", "Possess Me" and "Should I Surrender", not to mention her smash hit "Que Sera, Sera". It's an album that was only available in thrift stores, old record shops and antique barns for years. It's wonderful to have it on disc!"

"Ok, this is the proof that I do indeed listen to all the genres. Frankly, I'm a punk rock girl and a real music snob. I should be the last person ever to praise Doris Day. Yet, that is what I'm here to do. As a child, I spent days listening to my Grandama's vinyl. Wonderful Day by Doris remains one of my favorites. The older I get the more I see just how great she is and what an incredible voice she has. Fun, passionate, romantic and a little rebellious, Doris is a singer for all ages."
