These are the original LOVE HIM! Album notes:

Side One
(Theme From The Film "Mondo Cne")
Can't Help Falling In Love
Since I Fell For You
Losing You
(Now And Then There's) A Fool Such As I
As Long As He Needs Me
(From The Broadway Musical Production"Oliver")

Side Two
Night Life
Softly As I Leave You ( My Personal Favourite)
Lollipops And Roses
Love Him

While the songs Doris Day has assembled in her newest Columbia album are frankly on the sentimental side, Doris songs them all with that
special.Day urgency implied in the collection's title, LOVE HIM! Doris, of course creates a different mood with each song. She can be meltingly tender, as in Can't Help Falling In Love. She can be scorchingly torchy,as in Since I Fell For You; sweetly swinging in More, and sadly wise in the title tune,Love Him.
Tommy Oliver's deft orchestral-choral arrangements and conducting- and the versatile lady herself-make Love Him! a love her album.

My father marked the date he purchased Love Him! as Saturday, August 1-1964 on the album.

This is one of Doris Day's most romantic albums.

This was, I think, the first of his mother's albums that Terry Melcher produced. Doris's rendition of Since I Fell For You is one of the best jazz recordings she ever made, and her diminuendo on the last phrase is amazing.

I agree Musiclover- Doris' version of Since I Fell for You - is perfection. For me, it is the standout track on this [under-rated] album.

Hi all,

The "Love Him" album is the one I put on when I'm depressed, it fits my mood. Although the songs are a little sad, it lifts me up ervery time I hear it. The power in Doris voice, makes me stronger...

Love Doris rendition of "Love Him", the drums/the dramatic lyric... WOW...
Other favorites are: "Since I Fell For You", "Losing You", "More" and "Softly, As I Leave You".

Enjoy, this great album!

I do!
