So Smooth ~ 1955

           | Alphabetical 'NR' List | Chronological 'NR' List |

A poem by Joyce Kilmer set to music by Oscar Rasbach in the form of a concert song. Recorded by such diverse musical aggregations as Bunny Berigan and his Band for RCA Victor, Claude Hopkin's Band for Decca, and the country group The Sons of the Pioneers for RCA Victor. Perry recorded two songs with the Sons of the Pioneers in the early 1950s, a cover version of their popular "Tumbling Tumbleweeds" and a song titled "Lonesome, That's All". This song was recorded by Perry during the album sessions for his first 12" LP compilation "So Smooth" but not released.
