This compilation of hit singles recorded at RCA Victor's Studio 2, the Lottos Club
and the Manhattan Center, New York City, between 1945 and 1951, with the Orchestra's
of Ted Steele, Russ Case, Lloyd Shaffer and Mitchell Ayres, and vocal accompaniment
by The Satisfiers for "When You Were Sweet Sixteen". The album might have been
described as a "Greatest Hits" album for it's time period, highlighting Perry's "gold"
records from the early 40s up to and including his rendition of "If" which would have
been current at the time of this release.
 
In 1956 this 10" LP was expanded to the 12" LP format and released under
the title "Relaxing With Perry Como" with the addition of four songs taken from Perry's 1952 10" LP titled "TV Favorites".
 
All tracks in this compilation were monaural.
