Sony Music USA celebrate Doris Day’s April 3rd birthday with a double album of her favourite songs: ‘With A Smile And A Song’

February 18, 2012 6 Comments

In May 2010, we reported how Sony Music were compiling a collection of songs hand-picked for release by Doris Day – her personal favourites from her singing career.

We are pleased now to reveal that this long-awaited compilation will finally receive a release on Doris Day’s upcoming April 3rd birthday. The double CD album is the first official American release on the Sony Music label for 13 years (last being their ‘Golden Girl: Columbia Recordings 1944-1966‘ set).

We understand, ‘With A Smile & A Song’ is being issued on Sony Music’s prestigious “Masterworks” label (formerly Columbia Masterworks). This is a specialist arm of the recording giant best known for its Jazz, Classical and Broadway Cast Recording releases.

We think the track listing is truly divine and actually one of our all-time favourite Doris Day ‘Best Of’ albums. It gives a great introduction and insight into the recording career of America’s biggest selling female singer of the 1950s. Buy it and discover a music legend!

This page will be updated soon with the cover artwork but we understand that Sony Music has opted for a shot of Doris “at work” in the recording studio.
