"On a Saturday night
in September 1955, NBC unveiled "The Perry Como
Show." The success of the program was immediate,
with critics and public agreeing that the Como brand of
easy-going entertainment was a viewers delight. In
fact, toward the end of the shows first season, it
was not uncommon to hear the sixth evening of the week
referred to as Perry Como Night."

~ This is Perry's third
RCA Camden release, originally issued in 1959, and named for the moving of
his weekly television show from Saturday nights to Wednesday. Officially,
the show was known as "The Perry Como Kraft Music Hall",
so-named after his new sponsor Kraft Foods. The album was simply
titled "Perry Como's Music Hall" for international releases. All
tracks within this compilation were drawn from previously released
recordings for inclusion within this RCA Camden budget series. Recorded in the 40s and early 50s
with the Orchestras of Mitchell Ayres, Russ Case and
Henri René, all recordings are monaural. This album was never
re-released in an "electronically reprocessed" stereo version. Note: This
compilation contains the original released 'take' of
"I Wanna Go Home ( With You )" recorded with
the Fontane Sisters on August 11, 1949. Subsequent
releases within Japanese compilations and compact disc
have included an alternate 'take' with
slightly different lyrics and intro.
