Notes: ~ This song was included within a
tribute to Bing Crosby which Perry performed several times in live
performance and on his well known television specials throughout the 1980s.
The tribute was again featured in live performance on a 1989 PBS television
special with the Boston Pops and John Williams which included an encore performance
with Perry singing "The
Wind Beneath My Wings" interspersed with Crosby and Como video footage
from their 1960 television shows where each was the guest of the other. This
PBS Special was repeated many times during the years following.
Notes: ~ the
title of this song was derived from a note in Stephen
Foster's handwriting found in his pocket after his death.
Popular recordings by Bing Crosby (Decca), Dinah Shore
(Columbia) and Gordon MacRae (Capitol). The song was on
"Your Hit Parade" for fifteen weeks.
