In 2007, Sony BMG (UK) released this TV-advertised CD with a DVD of Doris’s first televised music special. On its first week of release the CD charted at #20 on the UK album charts (its highest position). The Magic of Doris Day features a nice mixture of international hit singles and essential album recordings from the vaults at Columbia. The real bonus for collectors is the inclusion of two songs that make their CD debut. This includes a song medley that opened Doris’s 1971 special and her heartfelt rendition of Streisand’s “The Way We Were” which she taped live on her final 1975 special. Both gems were recorded after Doris had departed Columbia and embarked on a successful career in television. If there is one criticism of this project that would be the absence of any actual photographs as the packaging relies solely on cartoon drawings. On 14 April 2007, the CD was released in Australia to coincide with a Mother’s Day promotional campaign. It peaked in mid-May at #22 on the Australian charts.
