. . . a cross-section of the requests that Perry Como sings on his weekly TV show. The style is relaxed, the backgrounds
( by a section of the Mitchell Ayres' orchestra known during the recording sessions as "Como's Little Combo" )
are light and easy, and Perry's singing is, as always, superb.
 
Notes: ~ Ben Bernie and His Orchestra had a popular recording of "Sleepy Time Gal" on the RCA Victor label
followed by many others. It has always been a favorite sing-along tune.  It was the title of the 1942 film
"Sleepy Time Gal" starring Judy Canova and Tom Brown. Frances Langford sang it in the 1943 motion picture "Never a Dull Moment".
