AllMusic Review by

This no-frills compilation, on which 102 minutes are unnecessarily spread across three CDs, presents some of Doris Days biggest hits, in non-chronological order, mixed in with album cuts. Half of the songs were chart singles for Day, including the million-sellers "It's Magic," "A Guy Is A Guy," "Secret Love," and "Whatever Will Be, Will Be (Que Sera Sera)"; other major hits are missing. The other half of the album consists of Day's renditions of standards like "The Song Is You" and "Too Marvelous For Words," and songs associated with her films, such as "Pillow Talk" and "Move Over Darling." While the collection does not justify its title, it does present a good cross-section of Day's recordings over her entire 20-year solo recording career from 1947 to 1967.
