Sony UK Announces Doris Day's Ultimate Collection

Sony Music is pleased to announce a delectable collection of some of the greatest hits from iconic Hollywood legend, the fabulous Doris Day.  The album is available now at Amazon.

The Ultimate Collection features 24-tracks spanning the career of the legendary singer-actress Doris Day, including the 1956 Oscar-winning tune, Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera, Sera), which featured in the Alfred Hitchcock classic ‘The Man Who Knew Too Much', plus the beautiful Dream A Little Dream Of Me, Sentimental Journey, Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps, When I Fall In Love and It's Magic to name just a few from this masterpiece collection.

One of Hollywood's brightest and prolific stars, Doris Day is a world-renowned icon and unforgettable figure of the 1950s and 1960s. From the long-ago Sentimental Journey days, to her 2011 return to the hit record charts with the album My Heart, from which she holds the record as the oldest artist to chart in the UK with a new album, Doris Day has been able to connect with listeners by singing a wide array of material. 

The Ultimate Collection features everything from lushly-orchestrated ballads to bouncy novelty numbers, on which Doris Day imbued with both ease and conviction, bringing her natural warmth, impeccable phrasing and honest emotion to every song. These qualities also contributed to Doris ranking as one of the most admired film actresses of all time.

Doris Day's last major hit single came back in 1964 with Move Over Darling and was co-written by her late son, Terry Melcher, who also produced Day's final recordings from 1985, two of which - Heaven Tonight and My Heart - feature in The Ultimate Collection. Now, for the first time ever, a career-spanning spotlight on the illustrious recording career of the wonderful Doris Day is available to remind us of some of the most beautiful songs ever made.
