This 45 RPM Extended Play compilation was released circa 1959.
It is one of two special compilations sponsored by Kleenex Tissues
and available by mail order throughout the United States and
Canada in conjunction with Perry's successful television show.
This promotion preceded Perry's Guinness Book of World Records'
contract with Kraft in 1959 and their exclusive sponsorship of what
became known as the "Perry Como Kraft music Hall",
a 25 Million Dollar Contract widely publicized in the press.
