Mark 56 Records and the Tijuana Sound
I thought "Sentimental Journey" was recorded by Glenn Miller, and that is why I mentioned "I wasn't 100 % sure", but there were some references online about Glenn Miller doing "Sentimental Journey"
<---Amazon.com MP3 for example is one on many.
This particular listing as well as a few others, didn't mention that it
was "The Glenn Miller Orchestra" after his death.
I was aware that
Doris Day sang the song with Les Brown and His Band of Renown (As I
knew of him), I don't know exactly when he was referred to that way, but
again, I was aware that Doris Day did sing "Sentimental Journey" in 1945. I wasn't aware of where it charted, being I didn't have access to that information. I didn't search online recently, but sometime ago, I did write down that Doris Day sang "Sentimental Journey" in 1945, and I also remember watching the movie "Sentimental Journey" (1946)
a few times over the years, with John Payne and Maureen O'Hara, before being paired along with Edmund Gwenn for "Miracle on 34th. Street" 1947
. I don't remember what network it was on, but I had recorded "Sentimental Journey" on video tape and watched it at least once a week for the summer a long time ago, but it was one of the video tapes that got destroyed when I had the pipe leaking in the old apartment. I haven't seen it since and it's been over 20 years now.
I believe I
have a recording of Doris Day singing "Sentimental Journey" on one of my Old time Radio Reel-to-Reel tapes.
I remember looking at some of the contents that were printed on recipe
sized cards and stuck in the box with the tape and it listed all the
songs or programs that were on that particular tape.
I also have a CD of "Sentimental Journey- Capitol's Great Ladies of Song, Vol. 2"
Capitol Records D170336 from 1992, but Dinah Shore is singing "Sentimental Journey" There are some great ladies and songs on this CD, and I would love to see what Volume 1 has but right now funds aren't available, though the CD is available on Amazon.com also. The picture below is from my own scan, but is obviously the same picture in the Amazon link.
As for the contrarian
theory about Glenn Miller, I did mention that I hoped this wasn't true and also that I know that you can't take everything you see in the Internet as being "Gospel Truth" This theory aside, I don't believe they ever recovered Glenn Millers body or the other people on the plane.
I have mentioned this before, that my knowledge isn't any where near as plentiful as yours and therefore, I an prone to inaccuracies , though unintentional, and I am glad that you are able to set things straight.
I don't have access to all the resources you do, and I believe that I've mentioned before that when I started to really collect records, that I only cared about getting the albums, I wasn't aware about reissues and so on, and also about the producers, album designers etc.
But I would say I am slightly above average in my knowledge, albeit some of it was with your assistance when something isn't accurate, and I am grateful when you correct me, so that others will also have the correct knowledge.
