Re: Booklist for DayReaders

Thanks, Johnny. I am glad you are enjoying the book. It was a real pleasure for me to write it. I sent it to Doris and her managers first for their approval and got the ok before it was published. And you should also know that all profits from the sale of the book go directly to the Doris Day Animal...

Now available on Amazon; just bought a copy (even though I have all the originals in other collections). I understand that this new cd has been modified with the orchestra of Les Brown, Jr. I will let you know.

Re: Les Brown, Jr. on Doris Day and a new recording!

According to an article on the web today, the record will be released on Nov. 29, along with a digital single recording of "I'm in the Mood for Love", from the album. Let's hope both will be gigantic hits. It is being released by Hindsight Records, but currently, that website is down, and I can find...

Re: Doris Day Hit Singles Selling 1,000,000 or More

Too Often, Doris does not get her honest due. We all know that. Such is the case with her music. One great example: "Again" (1949) and "Que Sera" (1956), while undoubted gigantic hits, never made it to #1 on the charts. (On the jukebox, of course, but not on the charts. Some folks forget that very o...

Re: Doris Day and the Page Cavanaugh Trio

Keep your eyes pealed. Les Brown, Jr. is working on a brand new enhanced collection of Songs by Doris with the Page Cavanaugh Trio, sung in 1952 but never released. Should be a prize for Doris Collectors.

DAY AFTER DAY

tHOSE who have done any research at all on Doris music know that Barney Rapp supposedly named her after a song she sang in the late 30's called DAY AFTER DAY (NOT to be confused with her hit, DAY BY DAY, with Les Brown). It is a known fact that Doris never recorded the song but she has referred to i...

Re: Why was Doris Not Liked In Hollywood?

Doris was more than just liked by costars and crew; she was adored! I heard a producer in an interview say that the "Hollywood Circle" did not like her because she would not attend all the parties...So good for her! She cared more about getting enough rest each night to be prepared to give 100 perce...

Really nice banner, Barb...love the colors. As for LET NO WALLS DIVIDE...that song never did get its proper due. Its first release was on a special collection limited edition album that came out sometime in the early 60's, I believe. It was never released as a single and did not appear on a Doris Da...
