The Pre Stereo Era:

This index includes all of Perry's popular songs recorded between 1943 and 1956 with some crossover to 1957. Christmas Songs and traditional Songs of All Faiths which are also indexed separately. All of these songs pre-date the stereophonic era with the exception of recordings from 1956 and 1957 which may have been recorded on a two track master, a process now referred to as binaural. Although these recordings were not intended for stereo release, many have surfaced in recent years within compact disc compilations.
