Best of British 78's ~ 1946 to 1960
Collected by Harry Smith

Harry Smith was a devoted fan of Perry Como and an ardent activist 
in support of everything and anything having to do with his favourite crooner; 
he founded the very first "Perry Como Fan Club" in Britain and was active 
in many roles throughout the evolution of Perry's popularity from 1943 and onwards. 
This is a complete index of Harry's 78 record collection released in the United Kingdom 
between 1946 and 1960. This list was complied and contributed to the discography 
by Harry's son Bill Hodges-Smith.
