Ania, it's a nice video. Enjoyed it, but that's not our Doris doing the singing. Don't really recognize the voice.
Like Irene Dunne done.

I agree Howard... certainly NOT our Doris! Whilst it is Les Brown, the vocalist is most probably the lass who sang with Les in the 50's whose name escapes me at present.

Sounds to me like Margaret Whiting.

Great work Ania, and great vocal, possibly Margaret Whitting, or a young June Christy?

I think something is not the best of my hearing, because I was convinced that it sings Doris? :( Is the disc "Doris Day & Les Brown - The Complete Works", with which I have this song, consists of three CDs? I have 3 CD and CD 3 track 18 is "Back in your own backyard" Please help, because I already do not understand! Thank you :D

Ania,
Maybe the CD is mis-labeled, which happens occasionally. I believe the singer is probably Lucy Ann Polk, who also sang with Jimmy Dorsey's orchestra. She was with Les Brown in the 1950s, but may have been with him in the very late 1940s as well. They did cut a recording of this song together. Polk was a good vocalist with nice, clear dictation. I don't know why she didn't get more recognition.

Ania,

you made very nice video.

I'm preety sure, the voice is Margaret's. Compare voice from your video with this one from YT.

Also on CDs can be error - I know for Love and marriage DD never recorded.

Ask Peter, he is top master for this.

The CD may be one of Les Browns', I have a few CDs that say Les Brown "featuring Doris Day", but also include songs with other vocalists that sang with his band back in the day.
