Ubreleased track from "By Request"  ~ original album September 1962

 

This song was revived by Bing Crosby and Ingrid Bergman in the 1945 Hollywood Musical "The Bells of St. Mary's". Perry recorded it during the 1962 album sessions for "By Request" which turned out to be one of his most memorable collections and the highlight of five albums recorded with Hugo and Luigi. The albums produced by this famous team are certainly among the most carefully crafted and well executed recordings of Perry's career. This song was excluded from the final release for reasons unknown but considering the quality of the other recordings, and Perry's lifelong association with Bing Crosby, there is likely to be high demand from Perry's many fans to hear his rendition.
