CD ERRATA & ADDENDA
 
Novelty tunes were a highlight of Perry's recording career as Joseph F. Laredo alludes within the liner notes narrative referring specifically to "Chi-Baba, Chi-Baba" becoming a gold record for Perry in 1947. Oddly, this record has seldom been acknowledged as one of Perry's gold records, but one which has "A Hubba Hubba Hubba ( Dig You Later )" , also known as "Dig You Later ( A Hubba Hubba Hubba )", is one of only two acknowledged gold records excluded from this compilation.  "Chi-Baba, Chi-Baba" was instrumental, however, in causing Perry to record Walt Disney's song "Bibbidi-Bobbidi-Boo". The story is told that Walt Disney himself, traveling by car,  heard Perry's popular rendition of "Chi-Baba, Chi-Baba"  on the car radio and immediately made up his mind that Perry should record this new song. Although Perry did record the song, and one other, unlike many popular entertainers of the day, up to and including the present, Perry was never drawn into the Disney fold. One other novelty tune, Perry's seldom heard "Zing Zing, Zoom Zoom" , holds the distinction of having the composer conduct Perry's recording about which the story has not been told. There has never been a definitive compilation of these novelty tunes which in the minds of many Como fans define a very important part of Perry's persona during the 1940s and 1950s. Interestingly, other Como fans would like to ignore most of them!
 
"I Wanna Go Home ( With You )" recorded by Perry in 1949, with Mitchell Ayres' Orchestra and The Fontane Sisters, is the alternate 'take' and not the original single, having a slightly different opening and closing. The original single was re-released within Perry's 1959 RCA Camden album "Wednesday Night Music Hall" and the alternate 'take' first appeared within the 1981 Japanese compilation "Young Perry Como". The alternate version was also included undocumented within the 1993 box set "Yesterday & Today ~ A Celebration in Song".
 
Perry recorded  "To Know You ( Is To Love You )" and a Lenny Stock composition "The Last Straw" with Betty Hutton in June of 1952. Both songs were unreleased but Perry returned to the studio in September to record a remake of the former song but this time with the Fontane Sisters. The Fontane Sisters' version was released as a single. Although the Betty Hutton version was credited within the listing for his 1960 RCA Camden album "Dreamer's Holiday", the album actually included a re-release of the single.  Strangely, the listing was corrected for the 1966 RCA Camden release "No Other Love" but for the wrong version again because in that set was included Perry's 1959 recording with a Ray Charles duet from the RCA Victor album "Como Swings." The 1960 error is repeated again within this compact disc compilation which credits Betty Hutton but includes the version recorded with the Fontane Sisters. The comedy of error continues to the disappointment of many who thought they had found a rare track within this collection of songs.
 
Perry's recording "(There's No Place Like) Home For The Holidays" is the original single monaural release from 1954 and not the full stereo version which he recorded in 1959 for the album "Season's Greetings from Perry Como". The single version is particularly rare and was only recently re-released by Time-Life Music within their "Your Hit Parade" Series. The undocumented backing chorus for the single is believed to be conducted by Ray Charles, as with the 1959 version, but the newer recording contained one additional verse. The 1959 version, " . . . has appeared in more RCA Victor compilations than any other Christmas song," and is by far Perry's best known Christmas recording.
 
Perry's 1954 recordings "Papa Loves Mambo" and flip side "The Things I Didn't Do", both featured within this compilation, were backed by "The Ray Charles Chorus" which later became known as "The Ray Charles Singers" after Perry spontaneously introduced the singers that way on one of his television shows. The newly formed group, so named by Perry, then backed him throughout the remainder of his television and recording career for more than forty years. Charles, himself, had worked with Perry since 1949.
 
Within the liner notes for this album, Ray Charles is quoted as saying: "I sang with him on one of those up-tempo things and when sales leveled off at 750,000 copies, Perry presented me with three-quarters of a gold record!" That song was "Kewpie Doll" for which Charles' contribution has always been un-credited. This song may have been Perry's first single recorded in full stereo but it's only been released in stereo once . . .  and, disappointingly, not within this compilation.
 
Perry's 1973 Nashville recording "For the Good Times" was never released in North America as a single. It's inclusion here as one of only three "Greatest Hits" within the past forty years appears somewhat erroneous considering Perry's many hit records within this time frame, not the least of which was Perry's surprising 1960 UK hit record "Delaware" which was later included within the UK version of "Como's Golden Records". Perry also had hit records in the UK which were never released in North America such as "Idle Gossip" and "The Ruby and the Pearl."
