Dream Along With Me ~ RCA Camden 1957

Dream Along with Me was born in 1955, when Perry asked some songwriters he knew
to come up with a theme for his TV show. 'I thought about what Perry Como meant to me,
and to his fans,' Carl Sigman recalls, 'and I tried to capture him in a song. When he told me
he had selected 'Dream Along with Me' I was thrilled.' The best part of this recording is
that you finally get to hear the complete song, not just the few bars that Perry sang before
greeting his TV audience. Among Sigman's other well-known songs are 'Ebb Tide',
'What Now My Love', 'Civilization ( Bongo Bongo Bongo ), and 'Enjoy Yourself ( It's Later Than You Think )'
