On Moonlight Bay is a Doris Day album (released July 2, 1951) featuring songs from the movie of the same name. It was issued by Columbia Records as a 10" LP album, catalog number CL-6186 and as a 78rpm 4 disc set, catalog number C-267.[1]

The album was combined with Day's 1953 album, By the Light of the Silvery Moon, on a compact disc, issued on January 30, 2001 by Collectables Records. Gordon McRae is not featured on the album, as he was a property of Capitol records and wasn't allowed to sing on this Columbia recording. James Emmons, a contract singer handled by Doris Day's husband, was used in his place on two songs... "Cuddle up a Little Closer" and "Till We Meet Again".
