All tracks, with the exception of "Caterina" and "Delaware" are from the 1957 RCA Victor album LPM-1463 "We Get Letters,"
which was Mr. Como's last recorded album prior to the stereophonic era beginning in early 1958. There is a high probability
that these tracks were recorded in a two-track binaural stereo format and mixed-down to monaural. Some recordings from this
era have inadvertently been released by the label owners in recent years but historically they have denied the existence of
these recordings. Time-Life Music recently released a binaural version of Mr. Como's 1957 recording of "Catch a Falling Star"
with remarkable results. It is available in their compact disc series "YOUR HIT PARADE" on the "1958" compilation.
"Delaware" was recorded December 28, 1959 and "Caterina" was recorded February 14, 1962. Although released only
in monaural within this compilation, both have been subsequently released in stereo. "Caterina" was first released in
real stereo within the 1970 RCA Victor compilation "This Is Perry Como" VPS-6026 (e) and "Delaware" was released
in 1993 within the compact disc box set "Yesterday & Today ~ A Celebration in Song."
