43 years ago today (9-18-74) the judge handed down his verdict in Day vs. Rosenthal, ending what surely was a long nightmare for Doris.

Unfortunately the whole saga was not over until around 1985 when Doris had to settle for a fraction of the original settlement.

Johnny, you are usually so spot on- I hesitate to critique, however, do you mean 1960 [not 1964] re-What Every Girl should Know? I had never read that it was not released at the time and held for a few years?

I believe the album released on 10-19-64 was "With a Smile and a Song."

Thank you Jas and Musiclover.

You are correct. I must not have had my morning coffee, because Doris' album What Every Girl Should Know was recorded in December 1959 and released on Mach 21-1960.

With A Smile And A Song was released in 1964.

Thanks again.
