RCA VICTOR VPS-6067
RCA UK DPS-2036 "Here Is Perry Como"
STEREO DYNAFLEX
ASSEMBLED 1972
 
Perry Como has been described as the most relaxing popular 
singer of all time. Once a barber and later a featured singer in the 
Ted Weems band, Como really hit it big in the mid-'40s Perry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
via his radio series and a host of hit records on Victor. When television 
came along, Como went along with it, heading one of its 
most successful and longest running series. And now into the '70s, 
Perry Como is still recording hit after hit. 
With his smooth, easy singing style and relaxed and soothing manner, 
it's little wonder why his career has flourished so long.
