Re: Duet - What Happened?

After a lengthy search, finally located the Collectables cd version with 5 bonus tracks at a reasonable price. I believe they were given the Sony mastering and made no changes. Arrives today!

Re: The Complete Recordings of Doris Day

I have the Cherry Red 3 cd release and I would say the mono recording allows DD's voice to be more front and center which is where it belongs. I find this one of the greatest vocal albums of all time-absolute vocal perfection IMO.

Re: Move Over Darling

Continued our Doris film watching last night with this one. Unlike Day-Niven, Day-Garner clicked and it showed on screen. An enjoyable movie with Edgar Buchanan particularly funny as the judge. Plenty of laughs and quite entertaining overall.

Re: Please Don't Eat the Daisies

We watched this last night. Enjoyable in spots with Doris trying her best to create chemistry with Niven. She looks lovely as always and how Niven could even think of cheating on her! The blatant sexism detracts but I guess those were the times. Supporting cast is good.

Re: What is the best biography of Doris?

Thanks for that tip, Jay. It's a long time since I read it. I found the page: https://archive.org/search.php?query=Doris%20Day There's a waiting list, as you said, (14 people) so I may buy it, but there are lots of other goodies on that page, including David Kaufman's book, which as I said, I recom...

Re: What is the best biography of Doris?

I just finished Her Own story and found it one of the best autobiographies I have read in any field. Frank with no punches pulled. I only wish she had commented on her singing career. I was able to "borrow" it at no charge from archive.org though had to wait a couple of weeks for the link. Just a gr...

Re: Doris Day has died

So glad I ordered the tshirt from the foundation. I will wear it with pride. It was a dreary day in DC yesterday but as I listened to Latin for Lovers, the sun came out!

Re: Latin For Lovers Album

My first post here on this sad day had to be in this thread. This is a truly spectacular vocal performance. I think the recent Cherry Red mono release is my favorite version. It will be played tonight!
