Doris Day 11 Classic albums - vol. 1.
on 16 November 2013
At time of writing, this 4CD set is quite a bargain; there are indeed eleven LP`s presented here, with no tracks missing.
The set is comprised of the first nine Columbia albums - 10inch LP`s - to feature Day in her own right; almost all are recordings of songs from her films with the exception of “You’re My Thrill”, her first solo album - she had, of course, been a band vocalist with Les Brown prior to this.
The other two albums here are the longer 12inch format with “Love Me or Leave Me” being an original soundtrack recording. This is almost her complete recorded output from 1949-55.
These are transfers of original vinyl records with minimal re-mastering - only the owners of the original material could truly enhance the sound any further - but the albums used here have been treated with care without any obvious distortion or excessive processing and the sound quality is very good, certainly as good as listening to an LP of this vintage.
A very recommendable collection, worth picking up.
