I only bought this album to record a couple of tunes for my parents to play at home with others from the 40's and 50's. I was just stunned by that warm voice. So natural. So full of true old-fashioned romance. At first I was surprised that her singing still holds up. But it more than holds up. Every note, the sweet ones, the soft ones, the full ones. She goes from girl next door to street-wise to pro singer all in the same song. Every note has that touch from a time when people believed in hard work and true love. After hearing this record, I made it a point to see the movie "Lullaby of Broadway." Acting and dancing, too, beyond perfect. "Secret Love"-- one take only and she rode her bicycle back home from the studio! That's the greatest recording feat ever. I'm sold. I like music videos and rock and pop tunes. But I'll never listen to the modern artists the same way. I'll judge them by Doris Day's talent.

This Cd is a reissue of the 1958 Columbia album DORIS DAY'S GREATEST HITS. Released just before her major surge as the almost unrivaled queen of the American screen via PILLOW TALK, LOVER COME BACK, MIDNIGHT LACE, and other blockbuster films, this is a well chosen collection mixing Doris' most popular movie songs ("Love Me or Leave Me", "Teacher's Pet"), best-selling radio hits ("Everybody Loves a Lover", "A Guy is a Guy"), to legendary songs that qualify as both ("Secret Love", "Que Sera Sera"), and a couple of noteworthy covers of popular songs of the day. My favorite track here is Doris' breathtaking take on "Bewitched" from the musical PAL JOEY. You will never hear a better performance of this song - Doris is downright bewitching herself with this extraordinarily lovely vocal. She breathes new life into pop standards "When I Fall in Love" and "Lullaby of Broadway". There's also her very first hit as a solo star, the beautiful "It's Magic". All 12 songs are wonderful with wonderful performances.

The original vinyl album DORIS DAY'S GREATEST HITS enjoyed a long run in print and, incredibly, was Doris' only Columbia album still in print in the 1970's and 1980's. Today of course we have much more to choose from with dozens of Doris Day cds on the market but if you want the very cream of the crop you could hardly go wrong with this chestnut collection and it's very low price makes it ideal for giving as gift copies to turn friends into new fans of the greatest pop female vocalist of them all, Miss Doris Day.

Being born in the fifties, one of the first songs I remember hearing on the radio was "Everybody Loves a Lover". Growing up in the 60's and 70's, Doris Day was about as un-cool as you could find on the American entertainment scene.
Fortunately, time has allowed many of us to see these pre-Elvis pop stars for their true talent. Of course, Doris Day was so much more than just a pop singer. Her acting talent combined with a girl-next-door wholesome beauty propelled her to the top of her field in the fifties and into the sixties.
Like some other singing actresses, I prefer listening to Miss Day on recordings, without the distraction of a movie plot. The CD transfer here is first-rate; I had this LP for many years and this sounds so much better.
It is unfortunate that so many will remember Doris Day for that awful TV series where she tried to play a character far too young for her. If nothing else, that show will remain famous for the amount of Vaseline they had to rub on the camera lens!
Listening to this CD will take the purchaser back to the time when entertainers actually dressed up to perform on stage. It also reveals to us what was lost in the Elvis revolution.
Doris Day deserves better than to be forgotten. Fortunately for us, her work is well-represented on CD and DVD. This album will be a valuable addition to anyone's mid-century music collection.

Format: Audio CD
Doris Day first made her name in the heady days of the World War II big band era as "the girl singer" with the likes of Bob Crosby and the Bobcats and Les Brown and the Band of Renown. When her recording of "Sentimental Journey" became an instant classic, its popularity launched her to film stardom--and in some respects this is a pity, for although she would make a series of popular musicals through the 1940s and 1950s, once Day was established as a film star her work as vocalist took a back seat to the demands of film industry.

Even those who are generally knowledgeable of her vocal work tend to think of Day as a "light" singer. This is a great mistake, for there is absolutely nothing "light" about either the lady's voice or her technique. Her voice has tremendous power--but rather than simply belting her songs in the style of, say, Betty Hutton, Day elected for a combination of power and restraint, and the resulting sound is truly unique.

In a general sense, Day punctuates the opening note of a lyric with an unexpectedly sharp, intense tone and then suddenly and smoothly subverts it into an exceptionally well modulated, open-throated, velvety and glowing sound. That said, she is also a remarkably witty singer, endowing her lyrics with a sly wink where appropriate. The result is subtly glamorous and covertly sexy and quite unlike the sound created by any other singer then or now.

Unfortunately, Day's recordings are becoming harder and harder to come by, and she is most widely available via a series of so-so compilations that fail to give a listener the opportunity to assess either her interpretive range or skill.
