Chronological Notes: In June, 1965, Perry recorded six songs in a Nashville follow-up session
to his successful first album "The Scene Changes" recorded at the beginning of that year. For
one reason or another, an album never resulted from these sessions and he returned to New York
in the Fall of 1965 for his first recordings with Nick Perito and A&R Producer Andy Wiswell, where
two songs of the Nashville recorded songs "Bye, Bye Little Girl" and "Meet Me At The Altar" were
re- recorded in Webster Hall on November 12th, but this time with Nick Perito conducting and
The Ray Charles Singers singing background. Of the six songs recorded in Nashville, only two were
released as a single during the summer of 1965, "Oowee, Oowee" and it's flip side "Summer Wind"
charting in the United States at No. 88. Perry never recorded again with Anita Kerr or the very
distinctive Anita Kerr Quartet.
