Re: Forum Banners 2019-2020

The lyrics to this Calamity Jane-era recording by Doris came to mind ... and I was surprised to actually not being able to find them anywhere on the Internet! THIS TOO SHALL PASS AWAY (Ervin Drake; Irvin Graham; Jimmy Shirl) Recorded by Doris Day on July 17, 1953 The stormy clouds that hide the sun ...

Re: Music critic Will Friedwald on Doris Day.

Here's a chuckle -- another gem from Friedwald, this about Bing Crosby's recording of "Tell Me Why," which Doris sang in "On Moonlight Bay": Bing tried to "out-poignant" her rendition. A fascinating piece of information! I'm no expert of the recordings of Bing Crosby, so I had no idea that he had r...

Re: Doris Day on Live Radio Shows 40's/50's

Thanks Peter, for this very interesting listing of the UK radio broadcasts! Previously, I thought the original shows were broadcast in their entirety, but now it's clear that they also included newer recordings, so the UK series was decidedly different from the US series. Fascinating! Yeah, hopefull...

Re: Forum Banners 2019

Hi Robert, Thanks for pointing out the David Hartman interview! I hadn't seen it before, but now I've watched all four parts. Very fascinating to hear their conversation, and I think Mr. Hartman asks questions, the answers of which are very interesting to hear, but not everyone would be comfortable ...

Re: Chatting about Doris...

Just started watching on TCM the 1954 film noir Crime Wave which opened with a gas station being robbed while Doris Day is singing S' Wonderful. The gas station attendant is joyfully talking about Doris Day singing this song until the robbers hit him over the head. Another surprise in this film is ...

Re: Lullaby of Broadway

Thanks, Bryan, for the reply!

Well, like I said, I never saw "Fine and Dandy" performed in the film, but sometimes there are deleted scenes, that later show up on DVDs and such. But, of course, nothing can show up, if it was never recorded in the first place. 8)

Re: Lullaby of Broadway

Is it known if "Fine and Dandy", a song featured on the Columbia album referring to this film, was also recorded for inclusion in the film? If so, is it known what happened to that performance, as I can't seem to find it when watching the film?

Re: The Complete Recordings of Doris Day

JayWint, many thanks for your thoughts on this! It makes sense of course, that a different mixing (be it mono, stereo, or some other way) would make for a different listening experience. Although I guess for me, Doris' voice has always been in my center of attention anyway. :D But I do see your poin...

Re: The Complete Recordings of Doris Day

I have another question myself. Hopefully someone has an opinion! In 2018, the label SFE "Strike Force Entertainment", a sub-label to Cherry Red Records, issued a 3-disc edition of "Latin for Lovers". Details here: https://www.discogs.com/Doris-Day-Latin-For-Lovers/release/12813943. The first disc i...
