This is a rare US-only LP which was conceived as part of [believe it or not] a promotional campaign for Imperial margarine. Coinciding with the release of the second Hudson/Day picture Lover Come Back, it cleverly builds a collection around the title song and ‘Should I Surrender?’, both of which were singles from the movie’s soundtrack. Regardless of what actually triggered the release, no one can deny the skilful blending together of some classic Doris Day tunes (from 1952-61), featuring rarities like “Til My Love Comes To Me” (from the obscure vinyls issued for the Sinatra/Day film Young At Heart), as well as elusive singles “Be Prepared” and “Julie”. Already quite a collectible, limited edition in its own right the 2003 British CD re-issue furthermore enhances its appeal by making the CD a Special Edition. This meant that it now contained some previously unreleased versions of the songs which appeared on the original release.
