Columbia Records is an American record label owned by Sony Music Entertainment, a subsidiary of Sony Corporation of America, the North American division of Japanese conglomerate Sony. It was founded in 1887, evolving from the American Graphophone Company, the successor to the Volta Graphophone Company. Columbia is the oldest surviving brand name in the recorded sound business, and the second major company to produce records. From 1961 to 1990, Columbia recordings were released outside North America under the name CBS Records to avoid confusion with EMI's Columbia Graphophone Company. Columbia is one of Sony Music's four flagship record labels, alongside former longtime rival RCA Records, as well as Arista Records and Epic Records.
The album gets its title from Doris Day's first big hit, "Sentimental Journey," which she performed as a part of the band Les Brown and His Band of Renown in 1945,and consists mostly of pop standards, principally composed in the 1940s, approximately contemporaneously with that song.

Liner notes on the album were written by George T. Simon who was the author of "The Feeling of Jazz". The album's tracks are backed with the lush arrangements from the Mort Garson Orchestra. Mort Garson arranged and conducted. All of the album tracks are medium to slow tempo. The album was produced by Allen Stanton.
Morton S. "Mort" Garson was a Canadian-born composer, arranger, songwriter, and pioneer of electronic music. He is best known for his albums in the 1960s and 1970s that were among the first to feature Moog synthesizers.
