Notes: An RCA Special Products release for third party distributor Pair Records, Inc., circa 1983. The distributor states that this release is the equivalent of two full albums but, in fact, it contains 4 out of 12 songs from four of Perry's original RCA Victor Camden albums, "Dream Along With Me" ( 1957 ), "Perry Como Sings Just For You" ( 1958 ), "Perry Como's Wednesday Night Music Hall" ( 1959 ) and "An Evening With Perry Como" ( 1963 ). Selections from the 1963 Camden release were taken from his 1957 RCA Victor album "We Get Letters". Special Products releases are not usually drawn from first generation tapes but the quality of this release remains unconfirmed.
