Dr. Kildare’s swansong fifth season carried with it some significant changes to the show’s format. No longer a once-weekly one hour drama, Dr. Kildare was now a twice-weekly half hour serial with storylines stretching over multiple parts and, perhaps even more excitingly, James Kildare M.D. (Richard Chamberlain) and Dr. Leonard Gillespie (Raymond Massey) were now being broadcast in color! This 7-Disc, 58-Episode Collection starts out on a high note as James Mason guests as a damaged doc whose psyche Kildare must battle to save. Then it’s time for Kildare take up his first teaching assignment, shortly before the hospital gets a new-state-of-the-art kidney machine. But which patients will be chosen? Notable guests include Dean Stockwell, Cloris Leachman, Fred Astaire, Audrey Totter, Kim Hunter, Darren McGavin, Basil Rathbone, James Earl Jones, Ricardo Montalban, Martin Balsam, William Shatner, John Saxon, Donna Loren and George Kennedy.

The Second Disc has awarded the "REISSUE OF THE YEAR (POP/ROCK/R&B/C&W ALBUM OR ANTHOLOGY – NON-BOX SET)" for Donna Loren's "These Are The Good Times: The Complete Capitol Recordings"! Congrats to Ms. Loren and Now Sounds Records.
"Yet Now Sounds takes the Gold Bonus Disc for a release that lives up to its title: Donna Loren’s These Are the Good Times. Featuring the cream of the crop of L.A.’s Wrecking Crew (including Hal Blaine, Carol Kaye, Glen Campbell and Leon Russell) and some of pop’s greatest talents (Goffin and King, Mann and Weil, Jack Nitzsche, Randy Newman, Jackie DeShannon), These Are the Good Times is an ingenious album that never was – with period-perfect design, excellent liner notes and crisp remastering. Though Loren only had one Capitol album to her name (Beach Blanket Bingo, which is also included in full on this disc), it wasn’t a true indicator of her talents. This creative, cleverly-compiled and beautifully-presented to her discography makes for an invigorating discovery."
