11 Dec – 22 Dec 1959 (3 days). The 1950s are undisputed as Doris Day’s most successful recording decade and this project was her last to be completed within it. Sessions for this album were held over 4 days in the fall of 1959. Doris was accompanied by the Harry Zimmerman orchestra which regularly provided the music on Dinah Shaw’s popular TV variety-show. What Every Girl Should Know offers twelve velvety-smooth ballads that are performed with an understated sway and swing. One of the highlights from these sessions is Doris’s much improved remake of the King and I classic “Something Wonderful”, a tune that she had first recorded for her 1951 single of songs from the musical. Doris also gives a stellar performance of Louis Armstong’s “When You’re Smiling” and includes “What Does a Woman Do”, a vocal version of the love theme from her hit thriller Midnight Lace.
