Doris day - hits & rarities volume 3
Melcher was once given a demo tape by cult leader and aspiring musician Charles Manson, and while the two did not record together, much was made of it when Manson's followers later murdered actress Sharon Tate and others in a Hollywood home once rented by the producer. Police later established that Manson was aware that Melcher no longer lived at the residence and was not an intended target of the killings.
By the end of the 1960s, however, Day's sweet and charming persona seemed out of step with the times. She starred in such films as the humorous western The Ballad of Josie (1967) and the family comedy With Six You Get Eggroll with less-than-stellar results. Day fared better on television, with The Doris Day Show , which ran from 1968 to 1973. On the show, she played a widow who moves her two sons to the country.
While working with Brown, Day scored her first hit recording, " Sentimental Journey ", released in early 1945. It soon became an anthem of the desire of World War II demobilizing troops to return home.   This song is still associated with Day, and she rerecorded it on several occasions, including a version in her 1971 television special.  During 1945–46, Day (as vocalist with the Les Brown Band) had six other top ten hits on the Billboard chart: " My Dreams Are Getting Better All the Time ", "'Tain't Me", " Till The End of Time ", "You Won't Be Satisfied (Until You Break My Heart)", "The Whole World is Singing My Song", and " I Got the Sun in the Mornin' ".  In the 1950s she had become the most popular and one of the highest paid singers in America.
