Calling on Doris Day’s fans to help make her new album ‘My Heart’ a British chart hit!September 5, 2011 3 Comments
Doris Day’s long-awaited 29th original album ‘My Heart’ is released today in the United Kingdom courtesy of Sony Music UK.
Ms. Day’s new album is available now on a fabulous new British CD which retails for around £8.99 (15USD) – a digital-download is also available within the UK for around £7.99 as well as some parts of Europe.
‘My Heart’ notably features many previously unreleased songs including six which originate from recording sessions the Hollywood star undertook during the mid-1980s – these were produced by the late and great Terry Melcher and Bruce Johnston but remained “unfinished” and generally unheard until the release of this album.
The ‘Discovering Doris’ website recalls pushing for the release of Day’s eighties recordings around 10 years ago so we are simply overjoyed that this missing piece from her legacy of song has now been completed (well almost completed! – as just a few other ’80s recordings did not quite make the finished track list on ‘My Heart’).
We pay tribute to Ms. Day’s British record label who believed in this project and have worked so hard over the last 12 months to make it a reality. Those same words of praise also extend to the many folks behind-the-scenes who helped deliver this sparkling new Doris Day release in such an unforgettably fun way in particular producer Ted Carfrae who tastefully crafted beautiful new orchestrations for many of the “unfinished” songs.
Calling on all Doris Day fans across the United Kingdom: We need your help now to make the British release a BIG chart hit. All you need do is buy your copy of the album from a retailer such as HMV.com or amazon.co.uk and the purchase you make will be counted towards the Official UK album chart.
We think it will be the ultimate ‘icing on the cake’ now to see the American music icon Doris Day return to the charts after so many years! We firmly believe the singer who is one of the most successful female recording artists of the 20th century truly deserves a place in the current day pop chart alongside the likes of Lady Gaga, Rihanna, Katy Perry, Beyonce and Adele – help make this happen.
The official ‘Top 75’ British album chart is announced every Sunday. This site will update you on Monday, 12 September as to whether or not ‘My Heart’ successfully enters it.
