This was the first music project that Doris undertook after she parted from her long-time label Columbia. What lured the songstress back into the recording studio was the prospect of remaking some of her all-time favourite romantic ballads. Doris completed her vocals in just three days over the 25 May-9 June 1967 but the album then vanished into obscurity!

In the summer of 1993, Doris’s son Terry Melcher made the shock discovery of the “lost” album’s original studio tapes. A year later, these recordings were given their first release by a British record label. This monumental occasion was supported by a high-profile TV advertising campaign. Doris also gave a series of unprecedented television interviews to help promote it.

Although at the time of recording these songs Doris was vocally still in her prime the sedate orchestral arrangements do them a disservice.

In 2006, The Love Album received a long awaited American CD release. This particular edition benefits from the inclusion of three obscure bonus tracks: “Both Sides Now”, “It’s Magic” and “Sentimental Journey”. These songs were produced in April 1970 by Don Genson and Terry Melcher and originally used in Doris’s 1971 TV special.
