The musical Annie Get Your Gun is loosely based on the life of American sharpshooter Annie Oakley (1860-1926). It was songwriter Jerome Kern who was originally tasked with the job of writing the music for the stage production. The project was however passed to Irving Berlin after Kern unexpectedly died. In 1946, the show opened to glowing reviews on both sides of the Atlantic. A few years later Metro Goldwyn Mayer (MGM) adapted the show for the big-screen. The film version starred actress Betty Hutton and became one of the most successful musical-movies of the 1950s.

A decade later, it was Dorisís turn to record a new version of this classic score with her Columbia stable mate Robert Goulet. The two singers laid their vocals separately with Doris completing her contribution for the project on the 8 October 1962. The orchestra was most probably overdubbed in New York. As a final fact for this project the song ďI Got The Sun In The Mornin'Ē is actually Dorisís most recorded tune. She cut no less than three versions of it: her first with Les Brown in 1946, then in 1960 for her solo album Show Time and finally for this release.
