    Doris Day: Music, Movies & Memories. CD


    Here’s the perfect 90th birthday present for Doris Day fans: a brand-new album of Day rarities spanning the 1940s through 1980s, offering tracks that have never appeared on an album or compact disc as well as several precious, recently-discovered gems. Among the previously unreleased titles are a 1947 rendition of the standard "Can't Help Lovin' That Man," a beautiful ballad from the '50s entitled "How Well I Know," and five tracks from Doris’ final recording session in 1985 including an amazing, jazz-flavored outtake performance of “Everyone’s Gone to the Moon.”  Also featured is Doris' last-ever film song, "Soft as the Starlight" (from 1966’s The Glass Bottom Boat) in stereo, plus a duo of soundtrack selections from her musical Young at Heart, an unreleased alternate version of her signature 1956 million-selling smash "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)" and three performances from Doris' 1970s CBS-TV variety specials, featuring superb interpretations of "The Way We Were," "The Gypsy in My Soul" and a medley that closes with "The 59th Street Bridge Song (Feelin' Groovy)." To cap things off, Doris reflects on her multi-faceted talents in a special promotional radio interview from the 1960s, retrieved from her personal archive. Plus liner notes with quotes from Doris, photos—there's literally just one way to describe this one-of-a-kind collection -- "it's magic!"

    DORIS DAY: Sings Her Great Movie Hits (Expanded Edition). CD

    When Doris Day burst onto the big screen with Romance on the High Seas in 1948, it was clear that a very special motion picture star was born. Warner Brothers and famed director Michael Curtiz recognized that the former Doris Mary Anne Kappelhoff possessed considerable talents and appeal beyond her big band vocalist background. Their judgment proved to be prescient: Doris racked up dozens of hit records during the 1940s, 1950s and 1960s, many of the songs coming from her film musicals and comedy outings which featured title tunes performed by Doris. Starting with “It’s Magic” from her movie debut, and continuing with hits like the Oscar-winning “Secret Love” from the western Calamity Jane alongside best-selling albums of songs from Love Me Or Leave Me and other cinematic outings, Doris enjoyed a dual career on records and film. Now, as part of its tribute to the legendary lady on her 90th birthday year, Real Gone presents the first-ever CD issue of the 1966 Columbia/Harmony album Doris Day: Sings Her Great Movie Hits, expanded with over a dozen bonus tracks (plus liner notes featuring quotes from Doris and photos) for a total of 24 classic Day performances. Focusing on the last half of her movie career, this anthology presents Doris in a pure pop mode, offering mostly upbeat opening tunes from the great comedies of the era that made her the #1 female box-office star throughout the early and mid-1960s. First and foremost are songs from the beloved trio of Day-Rock Hudson classics Pillow Talk, Lover Come Back and Send Me No Flowers, in addition to a pair of bouncy ditties from Day's pairings with Rod Taylor (Do Not Disturb and The Glass Bottom Boat). Doris even gets mod when rock-and-roll producer son Terry Melcher produces and co-writes "Move Over Darling," a top 10 UK hit arranged by another music legend, Jack Nitzsche. Every single Day movie from 1956-1967 in which she sang is represented here, starting with Doris' most beloved song (the original version of "Que Sera, Sera" from Alfred Hitchcock's The Man Who Knew Too Much) on through the composition "Caprice," inspired by the James Bond spoof of the same name. In film language, this is truly a long-overdue sequel to the million-selling Doris Day's Greatest Hits.
