. . . a cross-section of the requests that Perry Como sings on his weekly TV show. The style is relaxed, the backgrounds
( by a section of the Mitchell Ayres' orchestra known during the recording sessions as "Como's Little Combo" )
are light and easy, and Perry's singing is, as always, superb.
 
Notes: ~ introduced by Harry James and his Orchestra with vocal by Helen Forest in the 20th Century Fox film
"Springtime in the Rockies," Betty Grable's first starring film. The subsequent recording by Harry James
and Helen Forest became a best-seller for Columbia.
