track substitutionIn 1970, a special British version of "Como's Golden Records" was released on the RCA International Label substituting the 1959 recording of "Delaware" in place of "Mi Casa, Su Casa ( My House is Your House )" ~ a song about American "states" which had been popular throughout the UK in 1960. During the early 70s Mr. Como was on the UK charts again with "It's Impossible" and closely followed by Don McLean's "And I Love You So," Kris Kristofferson's "For the Good Times" and Sonny Curtis' "Walk Right Back." [ an exact cover of the original US "Como's Golden Records" had previously been released in the UK as were the majority of other American releases. ]
