Perry Como - 1974

Perry returned to New York in January, 1974, where he recorded his first country flavoured album, albeit with a gentle pop mix, in the traditional New York City environment. Also back at the helm for engineering is Bob Simpson with whom Perry had recorded the majority of his New York based records from the late fifties. In addition, Nick Perito and The Ray Charles Singers were long time Como regulars. This is Perry's first production with Pete Spargo who would also co-produce Perry's last Christmas single "Christmas Dream" later that same year.
