"Supper Club Favorites" with the addition of four songs taken from his 1952 LP
"TV Favorites" and re-titled "Relaxing With Perry Como".  Three songs from
"TV Favorites" were moved to the expanded version of "Perry Como Sings
Broadway Hits" while "I Concentrate On You" was excluded from re-release
until Perry's 1962 RCA Camden album "Make Some One Happy".
 
All tracks monaural.
