Lyrics
At the beginning of World War II, the War department, through the Army Services Forces Special Services Division, distributed thousands of shellac phonograph records (V DISCS) to Army Forces throughout the world. Shortly after the Army's program started, the U.S. Navy became involved in the program, appointing E.P. DiGiannantonio to run the Navy, Marine and Coast Guard programs.

Dream Along With Me ~ RCA Camden 1957

Bandleader Charles 'Sunny' Clapp penned this charming old-fashioned melody in 1927.
It was an immediate hit with vocal groups, especially barbershop quartets, who drained
every bit of widespread harmony out of its pretty chords.  It has the sound and feeling
of turn-of-the-century love songs, and Perry's direct, heartfelt vocal is in that same tradition.
( notes from "The Incomparable Como" Readers Digest UK compilation 1975 )
