|Album Notes: Perry's 1969 "Seattle" album
is a compilation of unreleased tracks recorded in Nashville and New York and
assembled here in support of his surprise hit record from the Screen
Gems TV production "Here Come the Brides".
The Recording Engineer listed on the "Seattle" album appears to be
incorrect and it's more probable that the original Engineers from "The
Scene Changes" were used for Perry's 1965 recording of "Beady Eyed
Chronological Notes: In June, 1965, Perry recorded six songs in a Nashville follow-up session to his successful first album "The Scene Changes" recorded at the beginning of that year. For one reason or another, an album never resulted from these sessions and he returned to New York in the Fall of 1965 for his first recordings with Nick Perito and A&R Producer Andy Wiswell, where two songs of the Nashville recorded songs "Bye, Bye Little Girl" and "Meet Me At The Altar" were re- recorded in Webster Hall on November 12th, but this time with Nick Perito conducting and The Ray Charles Singers as background vocalists. Of the six songs recorded in Nashville, only two were released as a single during the summer of 1965, "Oowee, Oowee" and it's flip side "Summer Wind" charting in the United States at No. 88. Perry never recorded again with Anita Kerr or the very distinctive Anita Kerr Quartet.
