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

Format: Audio CD
This collection contains some of Doris Day's hits and some great covers. Among her own hits are Move over darling (her last UK top ten hit) together with her two UK number one hits, Whatever will be will be and Secret love. Love me or leave me, I'll never stop loving you and Everybody loves a lover also made the UK charts.
The set also includes Sentimental journey, Bewitched bothered and bewildered and When I fall in love, all of which provided Doris with American hits, as well as great covers of Softly as I leave you, Singing in the rain, Make someone happy, Very thought of you, Fly me to the moon and April in Paris.
Committed fans won't find anything new or unusual here, but this set provides a brief introduction to the music of Doris Day for those who just want a little of her music at a budget price. I suspect that a few people who start with this collection will become captivated by the wonderful sounds emanating from their speakers and will eventually buy more of her music. In the meantime, they will derive much pleasure from the music herein.

Doris Day's innocent, girl-next-door voice has lost none of its charm over the years - if anything, it has only grown with our modern, knowing age. Please note that this review is for the 1998 release on Columbia, not the album with the same name on Music Digital, which is different.

The Columbia CD presents a great selection of her hits. Although Daydreaming: The Very Best of Doris Day is better value, I prefer this album. 'Daydreaming' doesn't include her wonderful interpretation of the Nat King Cole classic 'When I fall in love', nor the outstanding 'Make somone happy'. You'd also miss 'Softly, as I leave you'; 'It had to be you'; 'Singin in the rain'; 'The very thought of you'; and 'April in Paris'.

Both albums begin with the poppy 'Move Over Darling' which was a huge hit for Day, but less charming than much of her other work. Despite this small quibble, a great album.

2 Love me or leave me 1955
