Following the arrival of Rock &
Roll, the "British" invasion, the Counter-Culture, beatniks,
Bohemians and hippies, culminating at a small town at the Catskill
Mountains in New York, later referred to simply as "Woodstock", one might have difficulty imagining a list of
essentialsingles for Perry Como in the 1960s. Perry recorded ten
successful RCA Victor albums during this period plus one compilation album
in 1969. In February, 1965, after
having not recorded for almost two years, Perry visited Nashville where in
four days he recorded one of the hallmark albums of his career with a hit
single to boot. But Perry also recorded a number of classic
throughout this period and during the 1960s amassed no less than forty.
Many of these singles have never been released in an album format, much
less in stereo, and this period
has been sadly neglected within record compilations.
