Album issue: RCA-LP12 "Perry Como Live On Tour" AQL1-3826 STEREO 1981
Notes: ~ "Blue Skies" was written specially for Belle Baker in 1927 who introduced it is the
Stage musical "Betsy" the score of which was otherwise written by Rodgers & Hart.
It became the hit song of the show and one of the sheet music best-sellers of the year.
Al Jolson sang it in "The Jazz Singer" 1927 and again in "The Jolson Story" 1946 where he
dubbed it for Larry Parks. It was sung by Eddie Cantor in "Glorifying the American Girl" 1929
by Ethel Merman and Alice Faye in "Alexander's Ragtime Band" in 1938 and by Bing Crosby
in "Blue Skies" 1946 and "White Christmas" 1954.
