This is the Doris I remember from the 50's and 60's after our family settled here in Canada from the Netherlands. She was definitely best as a big-band singer - no one was better. Wish she would have done more TV specials and guest spots.
This CD is simply sensational, amazing, is the treasure chest most awaited by fans of Doris Day. Its predecessor, ‘My Heart’ (2011), was very good too, but had only 9 officially unreleased rarities, and 4 already launched. But this ‘Music, Movies & Memories’, has 20 songs never released officially! These 20 songs ranging from the unreleased season with Les Brown, original songs versions of some films (different from the studio versions!), songs alternate takes, songs from TV Specials 1970 & 1974, songs from the ‘Best Friends’ TV Series 1985, and even rarities completely unknown and discovered just now as 'How Well I Know' (date unknown! .. .probably from the 50’s). Oh, yes, there is also an important interview with Doris! It is difficult and unfair I point to highlights on this CD because all 20 songs are extremely important for any serious collector of Doris Day; all these 20 tracks are as incomparable pearls. If you love Doris, but are tired of compilations, then this is the CD for you (like 'My Heart', 2011). Finally the most precious and rare Doris Day’s CD was released, yes, this is a miracle! I just hope that in the future we can have more surprises like this. Doris, I leave to you a huge kiss, and much health and happiness. I love you, Queen of the Voices!
