This is the Grammy-winning singing legends
first studio album with fresh material in 17
years; 13 songs of a timeless quality with 10 previously unreleased
recordings produced by Day's late son, Terry Melcher.
Day has been fully involved with the
musical selections for this special album, which hit the top ten
with its advance release in England. Her son Terry Melcher--who
was known as a producer for folk-rock pioneers The Byrds and
other artists--co-wrote three of the new songs with the Beach Boys'
Bruce Johnston: the emotional title track "My Heart," the romantic
"The Way I Dreamed It" and the haunting "Happy Endings" sung by
Melcher with a spoken introduction by Day.
Also included is the rhythmic radio single
"Heaven Tonight" plus three classic rock-era favorites: Joe Cocker's
ballad "You Are So Beautiful", the Lovin' Spoonful's joyful 1966 hit
"Daydream" and The Beach Boys' nostalgic "Disney Girls," the latter
written by Bruce Johnston, who also co-produced several selections.
Exclusive to this U.S. edition is the debut
release of the traditional folk ballad "Stewball,"
which appropriately connects with Day's devotion to animals. Among
the trio of vintage classics Day has selected for this album are
"My One & Only Love" with the Andre Previn Trio, the biographical "Ohio"
from the stage musical "Wonderful Town" and the standard "My Buddy"
from Day's film "I'll See You In My Dreams." Rounding out the set is the
bouncy showtune "Hurry It's Lovely Up Here" from "On A Clear Day You Can
