originally recorded in real stereo~ these tracks were originally recorded in real stereo but released here electronically reprocessed from monaural to simulate stereo. In his 1958 statement regarding RCA Camden, Mr. G. R. Marek, Vice-President and General Manager of RCA Victor Record Division, claimed "It is the desire of RCA Victor that the public be assured that the same high standards used in the production of RCA Victor Records have also been used in the manufacture of RCA Camden Records."
 
All other tracks in real stereo except "In The Still Of The Night" which was recorded in monaural. The stereo effect for this track is electronically reprocessed from monaural.
 
"Tomboy" recorded January 19, 1959, is released here for the first time in real stereo.
 
Perry's 1958 recording " Come Rain of Come Shine" has been released in two separate BMG CD compilations which feature the original composers with various artists. One of them is digitally re-mastered from the original stereophonic recording.
