Essential 80s Singles Collection Index

The decade of the 1980s brought with it the final demise of the recorded "single" as a concept. Despite several attempts to revive it with single music cassette tapes and small limited selection compact discs, album recordings clearly displaced single sales. If actual "singles" were produced then their reason was to promote a specific album. A single record would often have the same song on both sides, one in monaural and one in stereo for radio play, but it was the album compilation of singles, featuring various artists, and not intended for sale, that proved to be the preferred format for promotional distribution to radio stations. In fifty years the times had certainly changed for Perry and the record industry, but his recordings throughout the 1980s proved second to none from anything he had recorded in the past.  For terms of reference this index contains a listing of essential Como songs during this period.
