45th anniversary of “The Doris Day Christmas Album”

November 15, 2009 5 Comments

Set the mood for the happy holiday season with an array of festive tunes from America’s darling of song.

It’s getting colder and thoughts are turning to all things festive. Now is definitely the time therefore to ensure you have a copy at the ready of Doris Day’s 1964 best-seller The Doris Day Christmas Album. It may well be the 45th anniversary for this album but the sound, feeling and warm atmosphere conveyed throughout still to this day truly captures the heart and spirit of the season.

For those who don’t already own it a digitally re-mastered CD re-issue exists which was released in 2003 by Sony Music/Columbia. To be true to the original vinyl LP this CD edition utilised the same cover sleeve photograph from the 1964 release, contains all twelve of the original album recordings plus benefits from the inclusion of three rare bonus tracks: ‘Deck The Halls With Boughs Of Holly’, ‘I’ve Got My Love to Keep Me Warm’ and ‘Let No Walls Divide’.

    Where else can I find her Christmas CD? I am not doing business with Amazon.Com.

  3. Jon the Moonspinner says:

    Hands down, the greatest Christmas album of all time! The cover is even better without the new decorations along the side! Maybe they were trying to hide her fur coat. Can’t we pretend it was fake fur and show the original cover??

  4. Joseph says:

    I know I am crazy, but I wake up to this album every day of the year. For me, there is nothing like starting the day with Doris and Christmas. I try to keep both in my heart every day, not just once a year. Love, love, love her.
