the same for both versions. Please note that album graphics for 12" LPs and 45 Extended
Play albums are displayed as equal size for the purpose of uniformity only. While all tracks
within these compilations were recorded in monaural only, versions of these recordings
were later released "electronically reprocessed" for stereo.

"The decade of Perry Como recordings that is covered in this album is the heart of one of the most
fabulous careers in show business annals. These performances run from the rising Como of
May 1945 ( If I Loved You ) to the settled, assured star heard in "Chincherinchee", recorded in
September 1956. The others, spread across the years between these two dates, include some
of the most enduring tunes in the repertory of popular songs sung by the man who has
made a career of relaxation."
