‘WITH A SMILE AND A SONG’ was released on 19 October 1964 by Columbia Records USA.

Doris abandoned her more serious guise as a songstress for this fun, family themed album. The songs that feature were carefully chosen for their obvious universal appeal. Each one inspires and enchants any child at heart (whether young or old). In 1998, this magical formula caught the attention of movie-makers at DreamWorks who used Doris’s rendition of Sinatra’s hit “High Hopes” in their computer-animated tale Antz.

Other standout tracks are the remake of Day’s multi-million seller “Qué Será, Será” as well as her sing-along renditions of kid’s favourite “Zip-a-dee-doo-dah”, Bing Crosby’s “Swinging On a Star” and the Rodgers & Hammerstein tunes “Do Re Mi” and “Getting to Know You”.

The album is available now worldwide on iTunes: http://smarturl.it/DDWithA1964iTunes
