Perry Como Sings Songs of Inspiration
 
At a time when the world asks questions of itself, when the pace gets faster and the
need for balance becomes greater, we can find the answers, the solace for which we search,
if we look within. The inside is the thing.
 
Beginning every new day from the place of truth within each of us, where we already feel the strength of love,
we can understand new dimensions of ourselves. We can gain a new meaning from The Lord's Prayer and the Prayer
of Thanksgiving, and we can honestly say I Know What God Is.
 
Ralph Waldo Emerson has said, "The purpose of life seems to be to acquaint a man with himself . . . .
The highest revelation is that God is in every man."
 
In this album Perry Como calls upon the natural goodness within through some of the best-known
songs of inspiration and love. Como's warm interpretations of such favorite songs of faith as Ave Maria,
Rock of Ages and Holy God We Praise Thy Name will long be remembered. His own personal belief and
straightforward sincerity bring a deeper and clearer quality to each message as he sings.

Jim Aylward, 1969

 WARNING:   The RCA Camden Label was established in 1957 as a value-for-money "budget" compilation release. The label was purposely designed for sale at very low "affordable" prices. While it was claimed that the quality of these releases were not being compromised, the facts clearly show this not to be the case. Common sense clearly suggests that it's impossible ( pardon the pun ) to maintain the same engineering standards for a budget release label such as RCA Camden as compared with the premium RCA Victor label. In 1957 this may have been reasonably possible but with the advent of stereo recordings, and higher technical standards, this claim became increasingly difficult to maintain. By 1960 the number of tracks contained within the average Camden album was reduced from 12 to 10 and for stereo Camden releases it wasn't uncommon for some tracks to be reprocessed from monaural masters to simulate stereo. In general, Camden releases are remastered from second generation sources and that continues to be the case even today within compact disc compilations. While some RCA Camden compilations can be very good, as were a number of Perry's original Camden albums, it is an unusual occurrence.
