Biography

Biographyby Bruce Eder

Doris Day has packed four careers into one lifetime, two each in music and movies. The pity is that all most people remember are her movies from Teacher's Pet (1957) onward, as the quintessential all-American girl, the perpetually virginal screen heroine, cast opposite such icons of masculinity as Clark Gable and, rather ironically, Rock Hudson. She also ... Read more in Amazon's Doris Day Store

BBC Review

There is an undeniable thrill upon hearing the delectable voice of Doris Day once again. Technically flawless, infallibly seductive in tone, it's hard to think of another singer of her era who offers the listener such unadulterated pleasure.

Among the 12 tracks here are reminders of her work in the 1950s and 60s, with three numbers sourced from the period when she was at her zenith. Listen out for the manner in which Day caresses the words of the meltingly beautiful song My One and Only Love, accompanied sympathetically by the Andr� Previn Trio. Elsewhere, she brings a lifetime's experience to bear on Life Is Just a Bowl of Cherries, and her version of Hurry, It's Lovely Up Here, a song from the musical On a Clear Day You Can See Forever - where the heroine, blessed with powers of extra sensory perception, discovers that she can make plants grow - is immediately lovable.

These titles are interspersed with the raison d'etre for this sort of release: a batch of previously unreleased titles. Four of them are co-written and produced by her late son, Terry Melcher. Sony don't reveal when they were recorded, but one of them, The Way I Dreamed It, was published in 1985 - meaning Day would likely have been in her 60s at the time of its recording. Her voice may have lost some of its lustre in the intervening years, but there's no doubting the sincerity of her interpretations.

Bringing us right up to date, Doris has recorded a short but moving tribute to Terry, who died in 2004 - she dedicates a favourite film song of hers, My Buddy, to him. Terry features on Happy Endings, his strong voice suggesting he could have enjoyed a successful recording career as a singer - a side to his talents which never really got going - on top of his achievements as a record producer (notably, he produced one of his mother's greatest hits, Move Over, Darling).

Four of the previously unreleased songs are written by Terry with Bruce Johnston of The Beach Boys. The cheery Heaven Tonight exudes much of the pair's joie-de-vivre in its sunny arrangement, while My Heart is a particularly poignant piece; throughout, Day adapts her voice to the more contemporary song styles with effortless ease. She made a unique contribution to the 20th century through the era of the big bands, then movies and recordings. The warmth and charm of her artistry, which transcends the passage of time, live on in this thoughtfully compiled release.

Product Description

(2011/SONY) 12 tracks. Als sie die ersten ihrer Hits hatte, war der Zweite Weltkrieg gerade vorbei, als ihr letztes Album erschien, war Internet hierzulande noch ein Fremdwort und ihr neues Album enthält die ersten Studioaufnahmen seit 1967. Kein Zweifel: mit der Veröffentlichung des Longplayers "My Heart" bricht Hollywood-Ikone Doris Day mal so eben eine ganze Reihe von Musikbusiness-Rekorden. Doch auch musikalisch wartet die vielgeliebte Sängerin und Schauspielerin mit einigen Überraschungen auf. Denn neben drei Evergreens aus ihrem OEuvre enthält "My Heart" auch Interpretationen grosser Rock- und Pop-Klassiker, darunter Joe Cockers Trademark-Ballade "You Are So Beautiful", Lovin Spoonfuls 1966er Hit "Daydream" und "Disney Girls" der Beach Boys. "Ich musste einige moderne Songs singen", erklärte Doris Day, "denn die alten habe ich ja schon alle gesungen". Das Album enthält allerdings auch einige Neu-Kompositionen, die Doris Days Sohn Terry Melcher vor seinem Tod zusammen mit Beach-Boys- Mitglied Bruce Johnston geschrieben hatte, darunter das Titelstück "My Heart", "The Way I Dreamed It", "Heaven Tonight" und "Happy Endings".Medium 1

5.0 out of 5 stars Just Wonderful 5 Sep 2011
By ACB (swansea) TOP 50 REVIEWER
Format:Audio CD
Fabulous to hear Doris Day singing at any time As a great fan of Alice Faye I understand Doris's agent when he said that "People could identify themselves with Alice and they can with Doris". This epitomises a chapter in her life to produce a beautifully emotional album. We all know of her persona and her supreme film career with memorable moments with co-stars (Sinatra, Cagney, Hudson, Garner) coming to mind easily. This compilation really needs no further introduction. Doris Day is a supreme artist. The songs are delivered in her own inimitable way. Vintage, yes, but old, no. Wonderful. A reminder of her vocal talent. Up there with the tops. 'You Are So Beautiful' and 'Disney Girls' tell it all.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pure Gold from Doris Day 6 Sep 2011
By john
Format:MP3 Download
How wonderful to hear some new recordings from the period 1985/1986
when Doris was in her 60's but still had that magic touch in her
voice when she sang.

The selection taken I understand from her American TV series from that
era, "Best Friends". It would be lovely to hear also some of the other songs
featured from the series on another CD, maybe in the future.

My favourite title from the album is "My Heart" although all the tracks are
very listenable and to have the 8 tracks taken from the period of the 1980's
digitally enhanced gives a real polish to the sound quality.

I understand Doris wasn't happy with the original recordings from that period
but what a joy
that she decided to commission the release of this album in memory of her dear
late son, Terry.

A really lovely album!

5.0 out of 5 stars A Dream Come True. 7 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
From day one when this album was announced, it was made clear that the unreleased songs were from 1986 actually recorded for her Best Friend show but never released. I own all the songs recorded and I treasure them. Doris is the best singer in the business and all of us fans should consider this release a
beautiful gift. Knowing Miss Day, it never entered my mind that she actually recorded these songs today.( She probably could have and still sounded great)
Her intro to her sons solo number is beautifully done and although she sounds older she does not sound shaky. It took 20 years to finally hear her LOVE ALBUM and now 25 years later we are getting another amazing album. She adapts well to the sound of the 80's and I haven't heard a more beautiful version of You Are so Beautiful. As fans, we should embrace this release and stop the criticisms. It's a five star release!!!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars simply fab 10 Sep 2011
By JBEvans
Format:Audio CD
I bought this CD for my sister who's a fan (I'm more of a rock chick lol). I thought I'd give it a spin though and was thoroughly impressed, I totally forgot what an amazing singer Doris Day is, the CD has got a groovy, chilled back vibe about it, it's perfect for winding down after a long, hard day. As I said, simply fab.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doris is Back and How Much We've Missed Her 5 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD
Listening to this album made me wish so much that Doris hadn't stopped recording in 1967; there could have been so many wonderful albums in the intervening years. However, Doris returned to the recording studio in 1986 and finally these tracks have been released. This new album is just superb and it was worth the wait. Doris' vocals are sublime and her voice retains that intimacy that just draws the listener in. The re-mastering has been done very well and Doris' voice is front and foremost. The tracks have a fresh feel about them. It's a pity Doris didn't record "Happy Endings" as Terry wrote it for her and it was perfect for her. Though her introduction is touching and sincere. I cannot recommend this recording highly enough. I hope we will see further releases from her vaults and maybe just maybe she could be persuaded to record again. Doris Day is back and all's right with the world.

As a younger fan of Doris Day I've always been bewildered by the amount of CDs out there which simply re-jig her old albums, to the point where it's difficult to know what to buy, in the end I bought the original albums on CD and a hits collection, and nowhere in my collection are most of these songs. Sure the odd one is out there but most are new to me and will be new to almost everyone out there.

Doris Day is a legend and this is a fantastic insight into her latter years, when her voice was still amazing. Buy one for yourself and another for your mum, otherwise she's likely to borrow it! Doris starts off Happy Endings with a few words about her late son Terry, it's fantastic to hear her voice but it's a shame that she didn't duet with her son on Happy Endings, now that would be amazing. An absolute must buy for anyone with even a passing interest in Doris Day.

5.0 out of 5 stars Doris is back and how I have missed her 7 Sep 2011
Format:Audio CD|Verified Purchase
This album, MY HEART, is a wonderful way to remember one of the greatest entertainers of all time. Her vocal abilities have long be overshadowed by her screen career. But her singing ranks right up there with Ella, Frankie, Peggy and Tony. A consumate artist has now allowed the release of some tracts from the 80's and a few which appear to be more recent. It even has a lovely rendition of a song, HAPPY ENDINGS sung by her son Terry Melcher. His John Denver-ish vocal is quite pleasent. Now I would love to hear Doris sing it as it is a perfect song for her. Her single release of HEAVEN TONIGHT grows on you. The 70's pop feel to it is infectious and humable.
All in all it is a delightful album and the millions of Doris Day fans should be thrilled with it.

3.0 out of 5 stars Not a great footnote
Pleasant enough, but not memorable.
And some of the now very dated 1980s arrangements are less than wonderful.
Probably only a CD for Doris completists.
