Latin for Lovers was Doris's final studio album for her long-time label Columbia. It was recorded during the 2-9 November 1964. The remaining two years of Doris's record contract were filled with occasional trips to cut singles relating to her film commitments.

This LP is brimming with seductive rhythms that exploit the sultry side of Ms. Day. It is "lounge" music at its best and music that still sounds contemporary. Four songs are also written by the pioneer of bossa-nova music - Antonio Carlos Jobim (who wrote many hits for non-Latin artists Peggy Lee, Ella Fitzgerald and Frank Sinatra). All in all the whole concept really suits Doris's vocal style and you even get to hear her utter a few words in Spanish on Be Mine Tonight.

The song Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps was notably given a new lease of life when it appeared in the soundtrack to Baz Luhrmann's cult ball-room dancing movie Strictly Ballroom. As a result of this invaluable exposure the CD sales of this particular LP exceeded all other re-issues!
