|Golden Girl: Columbia Recordings 1944-1966 CDs (1999)
Day by Day/Day by Night CD music Recorded between 1944 & 1966. Includes liner notes by Andrew Velez.
Digitally remastered using 20-bit technology by Dawn Frank (Sony Music Studios, New York, New York).
This two-CD set covers 22 years of Doris Day's work. It reveals a picture of a wide-ranging talent. Throughout the decades Doris Day has bestowed an unfaltering sensitivity on her recordings as she applied this talent to the wide range of material.
One thinks of the sweet, nice girl she was typically cast as in film musicals and comedies of the '50s and '60s, but her singing provides a portrait of greater depth than her film work. From the outset of her career her vocals cast spells on the listener, as in "Sentimental Journey," where she amplifies the tune with dead-on definition. On light, fluffy novelties like "Pillow Talk" she belts out the material with cheer, while "Tacos, Enchiladas and Beans" is a perfect humorous synthesis of power and coyness.
Contains 48 tracks, including 5 previously unreleased songs.

|Doris Day's Sentimental Journey/Latin for Lovers CD (2001)
Day by Day/Day by Night songs Doris Day's Sentimental Journey/Latin for Lovers is comprised of two mid-'60s LPs, the first a look back at Day's mid-'40s prime, the second a studied glance at the then-current vogue for Latin material that overtook dozens of other vocalists (among the best were contributions by Peggy Lee and Mel Tormé). As the genre proved for most traditional pop vocalists, Latin for Lovers was an easy, relaxed session for Day, a natural for laid-back material from the sunny climes of Rio: "Quiet Nights of Quiet Stars," "How Insensitive," "Slightly Out of Tune," and "Fly Me to the Moon" (hey, if Astrud Gilberto could do it, why not her?). ~ John Bush
Doris Day's biggest hit, 'Sentimental Journey' was recorded while she was a vocalist in Les Brown's band in the mid-1940s. Highlights from these two original albums on one compact disc include 'Fly Me To The Moon' and 'The More I See You.' (Collectables)
Originally released on Columbia.
2 LPs on 1 CD: SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY (1965)/LATIN FOR LOVERS (1965).

|Duet CD (1962)
Day by Day/Day by Night album for sale Recorded late in 1961, this album is a milestone in Doris Day's career -- despite having generated no hits -- as her best long-player (and, by extension, her best CD), and her purest jazz solo album. Cut as a duet with André Previn (with Previn Trio bassist Red Mitchell and drummer Frank Capp providing occasional support), the album presents Day in the most intimate musical setting of her career. Her trademark style of singing works twice as well here as it did on her swing-era and early solo recordings. The repertory includes "Fools Rush In," and Alec Wilder's "Give Me Time," "Falling in Love Again," and a few Previn-authored pieces that hold up magnificently in this company. The CD reissue includes three previously unreleased outtakes, among them even more upbeat renditions of "Fools Rush In" and "Close Your Eyes." And the notes by Will Friedwald are also a treat. Worth tracking down; if you own only one Doris Day non-hits/non-swing-era CD, this is the one. ~ Bruce Eder

|Cuttin' Capers/Bright and Shiny CD (1995)
Day by Day/Day by Night buy CD music This discount-priced two-fer combines two up-tempo Doris Day albums from the late '50s and early '60s. The discs were not released sequentially; 1959's Cuttin' Capers was followed by two 1960 releases, What Every Girl Should Know and Show Time, before Bright and Shiny appeared in 1961. But the two albums share a sprightly tone. The theme of Bright and Shiny is happy songs -- "I Want to Be Happy," "Happy Talk" -- while Cuttin' Capers is even more frolicsome. There are songs that were newly written at the time, such as the scene-setting "Cuttin' Capers," which leads things off, and "Twinkle and Shine," the title song from Day's reissued 1961 film (the first time around in 1959 it had been called It Happened to Jane), which closed the disc, but for the most part the songs are drawn from the Great American Songbook, dating back to the mid-'20s for tunes like "I'm Sitting on Top of the World" and "I Want to Be Happy" (both songs Day had sung in films in the '50s) and as recent as the late '40s for "Steppin' out With My Baby" from the 1948 film Easter Parade and "Happy Talk" from the 1949 musical South Pacific. The material and the arrangements are well chosen for a singer who was better at conveying contentment than turmoil. Of course, Day was always on an even keel, and though she gamely joins in on the celebration like the professional she is, she never gets deliriously happy. Like the screen persona she was developing at the same time in her comedies with Rock Hudson, she is friendly and even sexy, but wholesome and down to earth. These albums were not big sellers in their initial releases, but they hold up well 40-plus years later. ~ William Ruhlmann

|Sings 22 Original Recordings CD (1987)
Day by Day/Day by Night songs These 22 songs were recorded between 1952 and 1953, when Doris Day was just beginning to become the biggest box office attraction in the world. She had been cutting records for over 10 years, and her skills as a singer here have been perfected. These recordings were originally transcriptions for radio airplay, and are edited to fit into scheduled time slots. They're economic, pared down melodies that showcase Day with sympathetic orchestrations.
There isn't a bad apple among the bunch. Doris Day's voice, sweet and strong, easily turns in superlative versions of these standards. She is the center of attention, but it's interesting to listen to tracks like "Just You, Just Me" where the Page Cavanaugh Trio contributes an accompaniment reminiscent of the Nat King Cole Trio, placing Day in a jazz environment.
Unknown Contributor Role: Page Cavanaugh Trio.

|Love Him!/Show Time CD (2000) |
Day by Day/Day by Night album for sale While Collectables Records often has been able to pair complementary albums in its series of discount-priced two-fer reissues of Doris Day's catalog, there are also stray LPs that don't sound like any of their siblings and so can only be teamed in mismatched combinations. Such a set of non-identical twins is found on this CD containing Love Him! and Show Time. Love Him!, which arrived after a lengthy break in Day's recording career in the winter of 1963-1964, found her working under the aegis of her 21-year-old son, Columbia Records producer Terry Melcher, who attempted to update and broaden his mother's musical approach, having her cut recent songs associated with Elvis Presley plus selections from the country and R&B charts. Much of this material was really beyond her, but she threw herself into it, and as bizarre as the lengthy spoken introduction to the Willie Nelson co-composed Ray Price country hit "Night Life" may be, she really acts her way through it, as if such a wholesome type as her could really be miscast as a shady bar crawler. She isn't right for these songs, but it's impressive that she tries so enthusiastically to be. There could be no greater contrast with Show Time, a 1960 album of Broadway standards that opens and closes with a cheesy theme written by one Joe Lubin. The songs are terrific, all Rodgers & Hammerstein, Lerner & Loewe, and Irving Berlin evergreens, but Day gives them a minimum of feeling. If she's really in love with "A Wonderful Guy," you'd never know it from her performance, and that's typical of the restraint she shows on songs that should have been vehicles for some emotion from her. As such, this two-fer is a distinctly mixed bag. ~ William Ruhlmann
