Perry's original recording of "Goodbye Sue" was his first recording with the RCA Victor
Records label in 1943. The song was recorded a-cappella, having vocal background only,
due to the American Federation of Musicians ( AFM ) recording ban which lasted until late in 1943. 
Throughout this period he recorded nine songs, eight of which were released, prior to the
lifting of the ban. The song "Goodbye Sue" was recorded again with orchestral background
only for release exclusively through the government V-Disc program.
