Doris Day – America’s pert, honey-voiced sweetheart Doris Day was popular in the the 1950s and 1960s.
Her voice can still beguile audiences with her on-screen romances opposite top Hollywood leading men Cary Grant, Rock Hudson and Jack Lemmon.
Yes, we’re talking decades ago, but people still love to hear her voice.
Day’s voice is rarely heard since she withdrew from Hollywood in the 1980s to the Northern California town of Carmel, where Clint Eastwood was once mayor.
“My Heart,” set for a Dec. 2 U.S. release, has induced Doris to edge back to public attention. The CD includes 13 previously unreleased tracks recorded over a 40-year span, including covers of Joe Cocker’s “You Are So Beautiful,” the Lovin’ Spoonful’s “Daydream” and a handful of standards. All proceeds go to the singer’s longtime cause, animal welfare.
A condensed version of the album was released in Britain earlier this fall and landed on the top 10 chart.
