Doris Day makes chart history with her first UK ‘Top 10’ album ‘My Heart’ plus enter to win a framed & SIGNED photograph!

September 11, 2011 18 Comments

According to the Official Charts Company, Doris Day has become the oldest recording artist to attain a UK ‘Top 10’ hit with an album featuring new material.

Ms. Day’s latest release ‘My Heart‘ made its debut on the official UK album chart at #9 – this is her highest recorded chart position of all her UK album releases since the chart began in 1958  (until today Doris Day’s highest charting album had been her 1979 compilation “20 Golden Greats” which peaked in the UK at #12).

‘My Heart’ was also the 2nd highest “new album” entry having fought off stiff competition from new releases by the American/Scottish musical theatre performer and star of BBC TV show “Torchwood” –  John Barrowman (“Tonight’s The Night, The Very Best Of“) and English soft rock legend – Chris Rea (“Santo Spirito Blues“).

The GRAMMY award winning singer’s big chart comeback is in part thanks to the overwhelming support offered by BBC Radio 2. The UK’s “most listened to radio station” kept Ms. Day’s lead singer for radio, ‘Heaven Tonight’, on their main playlist for the last few weeks which made her “the oldest star in history to be playlisted on BBC Radio 2”. The mass amount of airplay combined with the music-buying power of her loyal fan base has without a doubt helped Doris Day attain her various new chart accolades!

Thanks to the very kind folks at Sony Music we are celebrating this triumph with the launch today of a very special ‘lucky draw’ competition. We are offering you a chance to win a limited edition 11″x7″  ‘My Heart’ promotional photograph which has been personally signed by Ms. Day and professionally framed ready to hang on your wall.

Before you enter the competition, we’d like to recommend you to go treat yourself to a copy of Ms. Day’s best-selling album. We think it is a beautiful release made special by the fact that it features many previously unreleased recordings and other songs lovingly picked by Doris Day. The European import CD of ‘My Heart’ will be available from the American retailer amazon.com as of  Tuesday, 13 September 2011.

  5. Valerie Ross says:

    LOVE YOUR ALBUM YOU’VE ALWAYS BEEN A FAVOURITE OF MINE, THE SONG “MOVE OVER DARLING” ONE OF MY FAVOURITES AND YOUR MOVIE “CALAMITY JANE” I NEVER TIRE OF WATCHING, RECENTLY AT THE EDINBURGH FESTIVAL THERE WAS A SHOW ABOUT YOU “A SENTIMENTAL JOURNEY- THE STORY OF DORIS DAY” IT WAS VERY MOVING AND MOST ENJOYABLE

  6. I have always loved anything that you did, have all films and just bought our new album its terrific. Hope you are well and keep doing the wonderful work you do with the animals and of course your music. Love you lotsx

  7. Vaughn Brinson says:

    Of course the CD is fantastic, as we would expect, but it proves “bitter-sweet”: Isn’t it a tragedy that she didn’t make more studio recordings throughout the 1980’s. Obviously her voice was still very “up-to-par”. (She always insisted to son Terry that her voice had “peaked” and she didn’t want to leave any recordings of lesser quality than her very best. This CD certainly disproves that!)

  8. Royce Howard-Fox says:

    I have always loved Doris Day, My Grandmother used to sing me to sleep when I was a small baby and through to my teens with all of the great songs, this has never left me, in my darkest depression I hum and sing, Chasing the Blues away!! and think of the great Doris,My partner and I still listen to the c/d’s and dvd’s every week,every week…Love to Doris, From Australia…and all the Animal lovers here…XXXXX

  9. Gareth Rickards. says:

    Thank you, Miss Day, for bringing us your wonderful new album. I think, if you’ll pardon the pun that, ‘It’s Magic’. I have been a fan of yours for a long time I have always enjoyed your films and songs. I wish you nothing but health, happiness and all good things.

  10. Genevieve Gomez says:

    Doris has been my favorite singer and performer since I was a teenager (more than 70 years ago.
    Every chance I had I followed her career and life as close as I could. She is still my inspiration.

    “Life is just a Bowl of Cherries” is my favorite song from the new album. God bless her and all those who keep her music and movies available for another generation to enjoy.

    Sister Genevieve

  14. Keith Miles-Smartearle says:

    Doris Day is multi faceted performer who excels in everything she touches and to my mind never sufficiently recognised by Hollywood and other areas for her works. Her voice and songs have been something that no one today can touch without alot of machinations and retouching…it is pure in its melodious feel. I can safely say in good or bad times she has at one time or another via a song lifted my spirits…one cant ask for anymore. For that I owe her a debt of thanks for all the pleasure and happiness she has brought to my life. Thank you Doris!

  15. Joe says:

    Her incredibly melodious voice always lifts my spirits. Thank you, Ms. Day !

  16. Sheila Macey says:
