Overview

Thanks to films like Pillow Talk, Doris Day has become as symbol of pre-feminist female sexual innocence. Mainstream hits like "Que Sera Sera (Whatever Will Be Will Be)" " which is not included on this compilation, only added to this image. As the title implies, this is a collection of tunes Doris Day recorded in the early in her career between 1947-1949. The songs were recorded mostly in conjunction with her film releases. The music serves as a good bridge between jazz and pop and is a good sampling of Day's early career. While her music got overshadowed and even ridiculed by the explosion of rock & roll in the '50s, this CD shows that Doris Day's music is a rather solid model for pop. The rise of virginal stars like Britney Spears and Mandy Moore in the late '90s only seems to prove that Day's brand of music and image has lived on.
