charting single from August, 1951, with flip side "With All My Heart
Words and Music by Irving Gordon (
composed Nat King Cole's "Unforgettable" )
originally recorded in stereo
the original RCA Camden release mistakenly credits "To Know You ( Is
To Love You )" as a duet with Betty Hutton but, in fact, Perry
sings it with The Fontane Sisters. Hutton recorded two songs with Perry
just one year prior to this recording, in September, 1950, the hit single
"A Bushel and a Peck" and flip side "She's a Lady".
This listing error has continued even to the present with release of the
1999 double CD "Greatest Hits" compilation. As a matter of
interest, Perry recorded this song for a second time in real stereo for
the 1959 RCA Victor album "Como Swings" as an un-credited duet
with his Choral Director Ray Charles. That was the second un-credited
performance of Charles on a Como recording, the first being "Kewpie
Doll" as noted above.
