This album was released in the United Kingdom at some point in the early 1950s. It appears to include a compilation of single releases, all of which were recorded in 1947 with the exception of Perry's Gold Record "Temptation". American "A" and "B" sides were not always the same as their British counterparts as no doubt was the case with "Roses of Picardy" which was released in the United States as a flip side to the novelty song composed by Dick Manning "N'yot N'yow ( The Pussycat Song )" a year after it was recorded. It may have appeared in the UK as the flip side to either "Body and Soul" or "I've Got a Feelin' I'm Fallin'". As a matter of interest, the actual record label is titled "Perry Como Sings"
