A song recorded during the sessions for Perry's 1966 album "Lightly Latin" from which there were four songs recorded that weren't released within the album. One song, "Happiness Comes, Happiness Goes"  appears to have been a warm-up song for the sessions ( it was recorded again and later released in 1969 ) but there are three Latin flavoured songs, including this one, which will be of great interest to those who prize this unique album from Perry's repertoire. These are among the first recordings with Nick Perito replacing Mitchell Ayres as arranger, conductor, and they also mark Perry's return to the more conventional recording environment of New York.
