included on Definitive Collection"Unchained Melody" was recorded in 1956 but unreleased 'till 1993 when it was included
within the BMG Box Set "Yesterday & Today ~ A Celebration in Song" as a first release bonus.
It's inclusion here within a so-called "Gold" compilation is unexplained.
 
 WARNING:   An eclectic compilation of songs released on the RCA Victor UK Records Label in November, 2001.
All of these songs, excepting only one, were released the year previous within a budget RCA Camden UK compilation
titled "The Definitive Perry Como Collection".  It has not yet been verified whether this Victor compilation has been sourced
from original masters and whether all original stereo / binaural recordings have been released in their respective formats or not.
UK and Australian compilations are not generally remastered from first generation sources and many recordings released originally
in real stereo are commonly reproduced in either monaural of electronically reprocessed "fake" stereo.
Some recordings may even be remastered from old records, a fact the label appears reluctant to acknowledge.
