Notes: The Anita Kerr Quartet, one of the finest vocal groups in popular music, plus a Country
harmonica player, join Perry for this Nashville performance of a low-key rhythm tune. Fred Burch,
who wrote the song with Jan Crutchfield, says. 'We made a demo record of it with me singing it,
and it was totally unique. We had it around for two years. It was a labour of love, because while we
knew it was different and loved it, nobody else seemed to. The song became our orphan. Then,
one day, like in the storybooks, we heard Perry Como was coming to Nashville to record.
We took the song to Chet Atkins, and he liked it and recommended that Perry listen to it.
He did, and the rest, as they say, is history.'
