5-CD box (LP-size) with 104-page hardcover book, 128 tracks. Playing time approx. 372 mns.
This boxed set is the third in a series of collections from Bear Family which chronicle the entirety of Doris Day's recorded work as a solo artist for Columbia Records. By 1956 the rock and roll revolution had profoundly changed the popular music scene in America, but this same year also brought Doris Day the biggest hit of her career, Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera). Throughout the late `50s she continued her winning ways, working closely with legendary producer Mitch Miller, who in 1958 urged Doris to record 'Everybody Loves A Lover', another huge commercial success.
During this period Day remained a major motion picture star, and this collection contains selections from such favorite films as 1957's 'The Pajama Game' and 'Teacher's Pet' (1958). By the end of the decade, Doris Day's work in the classic farce 'Pillow Talk' helped to make her one of the biggest box office attractions in the world. Doris Day, Mitch Miller, and arranger Frank DeVol were all interviewed in the preparation of this comprehensive boxed set. Every note of all the wonderful music Miss Day made between 1956 and 1959, has been collected here for your listening pleasure. This set includes 128 songs on 5 CDs, a 96-page 12/12 hardcover book with a biography by Joseph Laredo & a discography by Nigel Burlinson, Larry Zwisohn & Richard Weize, with many rare pictures from the collection of Donald Chang.
