Songs from the Films of Doris Day, Vol. 1: 1948-1955

Editorial Reviews

All Music Guide - Richie Unterberger
Although Doris Day had her share of popular records, she's most famous as a film actress. This 21-track compilation crosses over to both her movie and music audiences, with performances from ten of her early films. The sound quality might be somewhat lower than it is on her studio cuts from the same era, but it's still a good representation of the musical outings that probably did the most to establish her as a popular all-around entertainer.

The sound quality might be somewhat lower than it is on her studio cuts from the same era, but it's still a good representation of the musical outings that probably did the most to establish her as a popular all-around entertainer. In keeping with her wholesome image, these are largely cheerful, upbeat and/or sentimental tunes and arrangements with occasional hints of jazz, including songs by such esteemed mid-20th century American composers as Sammy Cahn, Johnny Mercer, and George Gershwin.

One thing the anthology's lacking, however, is much in the way of guts, with the notable exception of some of the songs from Calamity Jane, the only evidence on this compilation of some relatively forceful, sparky wit.
