Notation~ 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.
