This is the second CD instalment of Doris’s radio shows from the early 1950s, courtesy of the British music label, Zone Records. Volume 2 indulges us to many more magical moments from Doris’s time on American radio station CBS. As per the first volume, the new CD set contains a total of four full-length shows. These have nothing edited out, therefore giving today’s listener the same experience to that of its original audience. The recording techniques of the time do have some flaws but have been painstakingly restored to ensure that they sound as crisp and as clear as is possible (taking into account these limitations). This series of CDs offers Doris Day collectors a golden opportunity to own star-studded duets and other solo performances of songs which are not available anywhere else. My favourite rarities on this latest release are the pretty duets with American singer and actor Gordon MacRae. Having just played both CDs from start to finish I am pleased to tell you all that Zone Records have delivered yet another 1st class product. The set is comprised of two full colour picture disc CDs as well as an 8-page booklet of detailed liner notes and rare photographs.
