Although she is chiefly known for her movie career, which took off in the late '50s, and pop songs like "Secret Love" and "Que Sera, Sera (Whatever Will Be, Will Be)" she recorded concurrently with her screen success, Doris Day was a consummate big-band vocalist in the '40s, and her musical legacy as a singer ultimately begins with those recordings, which will startle and amaze those who are only familiar with her later pop fare. But it is those subsequent pop hits, many of which came from the soundtracks of movies, that gave her career such an amazingly productive (and graceful) longevity. Make no mistake, she could sing, and she came from the first generation of singers to truly understand the nuance of singing on studio microphones, which gives her vocals depth, clarity, and an uncommon presence. This 24-track single disc collects key sides from Day's early years at Columbia Records when she was chiefly known as the lead vocalist for Les Brown's band, and they arguably represent, as the title states, a gently innovative singer at her peak.
