Lovely songs from the lovely voice of a lovely lady
on 4 August 2014
After seeing a recent BBC4 documentary regarding Doris and being impressed with her singing I decided that I wanted a CD of her best material. Being an Alfred Hitchcock fan, I was already aware that Doris was a good actress from her performance in "The Man Who Knew Too Much" and the song from that film "Que, Sera Sera" highlighted an amazing voice. I have also recently seen the film biopic of 20s and 30s singer Ruth Etting in "Love Me Or Leave Me" where again, Doris gives a great performance both in singing and acting.
This CD has all the tracks that I want of Doris' career and in particular I like "Que, Sera Sera, Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps, Move Over Darling, Pillow Talk, Teachers Pet, It's Magic, Secret Love, The Deadwood Stage, The Black Hills Of Dakota, Love Me Or Leave Me" and "Sentimental Journey." The rest of you songs are also highly enjoyable.
The sound quality is very good on this release from Columbia and comes with an 8 page sleeve, 3 pages of which contain liner notes by Paul Grein where he gives a brief history of each of the songs. Lastly, a couple of pages detailing song titles, writers, original release dates and song timings are here.
I recommend this cd for anyone who wants to celebrate the best songs in the career of Doris Day.
Footnote: Ignore the first tracklisting that Amazon have put on this page as it is incorrect. The second listing further down however, is correct.
