This "review" makes no sense and is factually incorrect.
Another reviewer here has made a false statement about this ESSENTIAL DORIS DAY double CD
release, which is a wonderful collection of 36 of Doris' finest songs recording for Columbia Records,
including such hits as "It's Magic," "Secret Love," "When I Fall In Love," "Everybody Loves A Lover"
and "Que Sera, Sera."

Another great Doris Day CD called "Music, Movies & Memories," (Real Gone Music) was
released to commemorate Doris' 90th official 90th birthday in April, 2014 and is a collection of 20 previously
unreleased songs spanning Doris' entire career from the mid-1940s through mid-1980s.
None of the performances on that CD are included on any other CD anywhere, including
this Sony 2 CD "Essential Doris Day." This customer here may have been confused simply
because "Music, Movies & Memories" has a rare alternate version of "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever
Will Be, Will Be)" with just Doris and piano. This Essential 2 CD set from Sony is comprised entirely
of Doris Day's original Columbia Records masters from the 1940s-1960s whereas "Music, Movies &
Memories" features non-Columbia material, including a few movie soundtrack songs which are totally
different recordings from Doris' Columbia recordings.

Doris Day could sing pop, jazz and even light rock music with total conviction and natural talent.

I've been a true Doris Day fan since 1948, and have thoroughly enjoyed her music, movies, TV specials, and her TV program. She brings true professionalism to anything she does. She is and should be a role model for all females, and also males. The Essential Doris Day is just that! She engages the music and the listener like few other vocalists can. She is a true marvel.

I own 11 Doris Day movies on DVD, and I always wondered why Sony Legacy did not add a Doris Day collection to their ESSENTIAL series (though a similar collection was released in Europe in 2006). I guess Legacy was waiting for Doris' 90th birthday, as the long overdue collection is finally here. The set ranges from 1945's "Sentimental Journey," Doris' first hit with Les Brown And His Orchestra (not yet "The Band Of Renown" that would go on and play with Bob Hope), to a 1965 recording of "Desafinado (Slighty Out of Tune)." Most of Doris' major hits are here, including her signature song, "Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)," "It's Magic," and "Secret Love"; film songs such as "Shakin' The Blues Away" (not as good as Annie Miller's original in Easter Parade (Two-Disc Special Edition)), "Move Over Darling," and "I've Got The Sun In the Morning"; novelties such as "Mister Tap Toe"; and many Great American Songbook classics. The CD labels are an interesting 1930s Columbia design, and the CD booklet features a lovely essay by Nancy Sinatra, whose dad's duet with Doris, "Let's Take An Old-Fashioned Walk," is also featured in the collection, along with duets by Frankie Laine, Buddy Clark, and John Raitt (Bonnie's dad).

If you are unfamiliar with Doris Day, this collection is an excellent start; if you're already a Day fan, you will enjoy this collection immensely. I hope that Legacy doesn't spoil it all by releasing an ESSENTIAL 3.0 version with a bonus disc.
