Perry Como 40 Greatest ~ K-TEL UK 1975 8-Track
 
This record compilation has ten songs per record side which is generally considered to be less than optimum for best performance. There is no indication concerning the quality of mastering or whether songs were remastered from first generation tapes. It can reasonably be assumed that standards for K-Tel recordings do not meet those of the original RCA Victor recordings. The recording level within this release is somewhat suppressed probably due to the cramming of ten tracks per record side. One song "(I Love You) Don't You Forget It" is remastered in real stereo within the North American version but is released in monaural only within the British version.
 
9 songs within this compilation were either recorded and, or, previously released in real stereo but included here in monaural versions only. These are the following: Magic Moments ~ Caterina ~ Catch a Falling Star ~ I Know ~ Love Makes the World Go 'Round ~ Hello, Young Lovers ~ Delaware ~ ( I Love You ) Don't You Forget It ~ You Make Me Feel So Young
