|On May 26th, 1961, the track "It All Depends On You" was separated from this medley sequence to stand alone as Matrix No. M5PW-2283 while the song "Smile", recorded separately May 17th, was added as the opening song to the medley sequence. This deleted song, plus a recording of "Back In Your Own Backyard", would not be included within the final album mix and remain unreleased.|
song was interpolated by Al Jolson in the Stage Musical touring production
"Big Boy" which had a short run on Broadway the prior year. Jolson
sang it in the 1928 Hollywood Musical "The Singing Fool" and in
the 1955 biography of Ruth Etting, "Love Me or Leave Me," it was
performed by Doris Day. In the 1956 Hollywood Musical biography of the
composers, "The Best Things In Life Are Free," it was performed by
Ernest Borgnine, Dan Dailey and Sheree North. Perry recorded this song
during the sessions for his 1961 album "Sing To Me Mr. C." as one
of two songs, "Back In Your Own Backyard" being the other,
excluded from the album. This full length album of song medleys was
recorded, remarkably, in three days.
