Lost Horizon

Hi Lauren,

The songs mentioned in the list above are in my collection. I have them all on cd. I do have Lost Horizon on film but not on disc, that's why I didn't listed that song.

Peter,

Thanks. I'll be double checking to see what I'm missing. Were the tracks from the Best Friends TV show or the specials released in CD form in Europe? Those would be the 1984/85 list. As I recall, the series started in production in June/July 1985.

Lauren
Any chance you know where the BF songs were recorded? Is there a facility that could handle recordings in Santa Cruz or Salinas, or even Santa Barbara?

Guess I'll be checking the list tomorrow, too late tonight.

Best Friends songs

Unread post by Peter Flapper »

Hi Nelson,

My tracks of The Best Friends show are taken from a very bad tape/cassette (don't know the right word) and put to cd. A few songs are missing a little part of their intro. The sound quality is not well, but hey it's Doris Day.

I know that The Doris Day Society in England a few years ago released a cd with a few tracks digatally remastered. I didn't bought one cause these songs sounded resanoble on my tape. I believe the songs where This is the way I dreamed it and My heart. So there are songs around with better sound quality. Stephen Munns has on his site, a small piece of the song: Best Friends and that song sounds better than the music on my cd I think.

I believe you'll can find some information on The Best Friends tracks in Eric Braun's book. I don't have a copy here on my work, I will check it out when I'm at home.

Convention Chat

Yes Lauren, that was very funny, I got tapes of the convention years ago and thought this story was so funny. Everyone assumed Doris called the dog Blue becuase of the type of movie he was trying to see and when she realised she said something along the lines of ' oh, not because of that, he [the dog] was a big kerry blue'!

Oh okay.

So there is another live version than the one Bryan put up here:
viewtopic.php?f=10&t=2526
?

Or was that just a typing mistake and should be 1956?

Hi Marion,

I think it's a typing mistake. My information comes from an list from someone called J. David Goldin and I've used his list and a few nameless one to get this information.

For all I know The Man Who Knew Too Much is listed as a film from 1956, therefor it seems strange to me that this show with Alfred Hitchcock and Doris sould have aired in 1955.

So that combined leeds me to think the show is from: February 1956.

Have an nice SunDAY,

P

Peter, within the last hour I discovered a web site dealing with the following:
Les Brown Orchestra featuring Doris Day and Doris Day and Butch Stone
Victory Parade of Spotlight Bands, AFRS #371, Coke Program #526, 25 May 1944
Woodrow Wilson General Hospital, VA (Rebroadcast).
Doris Day and Butch Stone sing "Swingin' On A Star" and then, get this--Doris Day sings
"The Joint Is Really Jumpin' Down At Carnegie Hall". The program runs about 15 minutes and
is from Vintage Radio Shows.com Les Brown mentions at the beginning of the show that
they were at Ashford General Hospital "night before last," which coincides with the
23 May 1944 Spotlight Band broadcast we are already aware of. The show is complete and
can be played, as well as downloaded.
Happy Days,
Texas Gonzalo

Hello Texas,

So nice of you to mention this show. It's sounds so good and it's a new treasure for my collection. I hope more will be found in the near future. I love the sound of (a young) Doris Day!!!

Here's the direct link to the show:

Thank you!
