    Doris in the forties, January 10, 2005
    If you are only familiar with her later work, you may be surprised at what you find here - there are some similarities but noticeable differences too. Doris began as a jazz singer and end up as an easy listening pop singer. The changes happened in the forties.

    This European budget release has no booklet but the sound quality is fine for the age of the recordings. So there are no liner notes but the tracks (with songwriters) are listed on the back of the jewel case.

    Some of the tracks were recorded when Doris was with Les Brown and his orchestra although the track listing does not tell you which ones they are. Generally, the first two CD's here focus on Doris' solo and duet recordings from 1945 to 1950 while the third CD is dominated by the Les Brown tracks - however, there are some exceptions.

    Here you will find most of the American hits that Doris and Les had together including their two number ones - Sentimental journey and My dreams are getting better all the time. (Les Brown had a further number one hit after Doris left his band - obviously not included here).

    At this distance in time, the most famous solo hits are It's magic (from 1948) and Bewitched (from 1950) - these regularly turn up on compilations of her music, sometimes via re-recordings. The other hits that Doris had in this period seem to have fallen out of favor with the general public (including Love somebody, a number one hit duet with Buddy Clark) but I love them. The most recent hit included is I didn't slip I wasn't pushed I fell (from June and July 1950). Up to that point, all Doris' solo hits are included except one minor hit (Now that I need you). Also included is her duet with Frank Sinatra, Let's take an old-fashioned walk.

    Of the less famous songs, I particularly like Enjoy yourself (in which Doris advises you to allow some time to do just that) and A chocolate sundae on Saturday night, but there are plenty of other great songs here too.
