 Perry with the Fontane Sisters

As with the majority of recordings made by Perry during this era, there were at least
two 'takes' of the same song recorded during each session. These 'takes' were most
often referred to as 1 and 1A and then 2 and 2A etc., referring to a separate session and
the number of 'takes' from each. It appears that there were two 'takes' from a single session
for Perry's recording "I Wanna Go Home ( With You )"  and although it's not known
which 'take' was released as the single, the alternate 'take' was inadvertently released
in later years, first within the Japanese compilation "Young Perry Como" in 1981 and
again within the 1993 CD compilation "Yesterday & Today ~ A Celebration in Song".
This has never been acknowledged by the label but it's an indication of just how many
unheard recorded 'takes' are sitting within the archival vaults of BMG.
