Notes: ~ Originally a Danish language song. First U.S. recording with English lyrics was
by Wayne Newton on Capitol. Frank Sinatra recorded the song for Reprise in 1966.
Chronological Notes: In June, 1965, Perry recorded six songs in a Nashville follow-up session
to his successful first album "The Scene Changes" recorded at the beginning of that year.
For one reason or another, an album never resulted from these sessions and he returned to New York
in the Fall of 1965 for his first recordings with Nick Perito and A&R Producer Andy Wiswell, where two
songs of the Nashville recorded songs "Bye, Bye Little Girl" and "Meet Me At The Altar" were re- recorded
in Webster Hall on November 12th, but this time with Nick Perito conducting and The Ray Charles Singers
singing background. Of the six songs recorded in Nashville, only two were released as a single during the
summer of 1965, "Oowee, Oowee" and it's flip side "Summer Wind" charting in the United States at No. 88.
Perry never recorded again with Anita Kerr or the very distinctive Anita Kerr Quartet.
