CD ERRATA & ADDENDA
 
This long-play record and compact disc provides a rare opportunity to hear how "bad" some of the early "electronically reprocessed" stereo really was. When Perry's 1958 album "Como's Golden Records" was reprocessed for stereo in the early 1960s it was perhaps one of the worst examples possible. It sounded as if he were singing in a large empty can and this CD provides a unique opportunity to hear this effect within the compact disc format.
 
The two real stereo tracks within this compilation are medium to low grade but, surprisingly, Perry's 1958 hit single "Mandolins In the Moonlight" appears to be released here in real stereo for the first time in an album format. Although released originally in a special series stereo single, on the flip side of "Love Makes The World Go Round", all known releases since that time have been either monaural or electronically reprocessed stereo.
