A Gem of a recording
on 6 February 2003
Occasionally you stumble over a gem of a recording, and when you do you can't beleive your luck. I have to be honest, Doris Day was someone I never rated very highly, until now. Any artist that can sing straight into the microphone with just piano, bass and drums for accompaniment, and pull it off has got to be very good and this is exactly what Doris Day does on this album. The accompaniment by Andre Previn is, of course, an enourmous reason why the album succeeds. They go together like port and stilton.
This album was recorded 42 years ago, yet it still remains fresh. That goes to prove the maxim that good music, no matter what style or genre, lasts and continues to appreciated by different generations. I wasn't even a twinkle in my parents eyes when this was recorded. In fact they hadn't even met!!
If you enjoy listening to songs sung with passion and feeling, then buy this album and you will not be disappointed.
