The Show Time LP was Doris’s first studio album of the 1960s. She began working on it after recording a series of novelty singles in January 1960 (this included the title-tune to her upcoming picture Please Don’t Eat The Daisies). The sessions for the album ran between 11-25 February, with exception of the Grammy nominated song “The Sound Of Music” which had been cut in November 1959 with Frank DeVol. Show Time offers a bumper crop of the brightest tunes from the greatest of musicals. Doris tackles each of the acclaimed stage anthems with such conviction that you soon forget she didn’t sing the originals. She also gives a gutsy performance of the specially written title-song. You could say behind every great women there are usually one or two highly talented guys. In this instance the conductor Alex Stordahl, renown for his work with with Frank Sinatra, provides some beautiful orchestral arrangements. This was the first complete album he has worked on since he conducted part of Doris’s Tea for Two album. , whilst photographer Bob Willoughby comes up trumps with the cover shot!
