A LITTLE KISS GOODNIGHT was a 1952 single record. It is not on any albums except the Baer Family Sets.
STARDUST was a radio transcription for Doris' 1952 radio show. It was never released on an album or as a single. HOWEVER....there are so many hundreds of DD compilations out there both could be on one of those.

Has Doris recorded any songs from West Side Story? It would be wonderful to hear her sing "Tonight" or "A Time For Us". Her voice is magic.

I have been searching to see if Doris recorded, "My Funny Valentine". No luck. I think it would be perfect for her. Doris has so much tenderness and sincerity in her voice that this song requires. If there is a chance that it is on one of her albums, please let me know.

I just heard Doris sing The Man Who Invented Love that was edited from The Pyjama Game but is on the dvd edition. What a great song! I loved watching her sing this with such a quiet and tender tone.

Let's hope that Doris will release an album of unreleased songs like Barbra Striesand did this month. Wouldn't this be a nice surprise?

I also understand that both Doris' Christmas cd's are being re-released either in October or November.

Passing time in a record shop / store today after a dental appointment and waiting on a train - saw a really cheap 3 CD set of Doris - most I have but there were a few I did not recognise so I bought it and am so glad I did.

Great to find rare recordings [for me] - such as Who Who who; Take me in your arms [not hold me...]; a jazzy - when the red red robin...; Today will be yesterday tomorrow; and a gem - Nothing in the World - which by the sound of it was recorded in my favourite Doris recording period - mid to late 1950s.

Also, there was a different version of Tunnel of Love - a much jazzier version [than in the film] which I loved too and of course, [for me] the definitive version of The Party's Over- now that is song styling perfection!

What a wonderful find!

Congratulations!

I would love to know the name of the 3CD DD set as well.

There is a really great store located in Toronto called Song and Script that have an expert team that find rare recordings. They located the Doris Day song book for me.

Guys - this particular 3 CD collection is called - "Doris Day 75 [Classic Hits]" - the cover pic is b&w of Doris close up around the April in Paris Time - Gertrude Wheeler hair starting to grow [lol] - wearing some kind of coat/top dress/ - it is very close up - with a fur collar.

The CD was released in 2011 - by Go Entertainment Group Ltd.

Hope this helps.

I have been listening this week to, I Remeber You, on the Day By Day, Day By Night cd. It is an outstanding lyrical song with a haunting melody. It feels as if Doris is singing only to you. It has become one of my all-time favouites. There is so much imtimacy in Doris' voice.

Classic Example

Unread post by Renie » 22 May 2015, 12:09

I came across a recording on youtube that is a classic example of all the great things we love about Doris' recordings. You can clearly hear each word and she's singing to you and no one else with such feeling. It also brought back memories from my early years. It's called "Kiss Me Once......" And here's a link:

That is indeed a great rendition, recorded in 1964 and released in 1965 as a track on the "Sentimental Journey" album. Doris also had sung it with Les Brown two decades earlier on a 1944 radio remote. The lyric does begin with "Kiss me once . . . ", but the title is actually "It's Been a Long, Long Time." I love that it was written by Jule Styne and Sammy Cahn, who became important participants in DD's entry into films.

Thanks Renie!

It has been a long, long time since I have heard this song.

Any day talking about the music of Doris Day is a great day. Any day listening to the music of Doris Day is even better.

I just listened to a wonderful song on Youtube, Sleepy Lagoon, sung by an even more wonderful singer. If you'd like to hear it, the link is https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... epy+lagoon
