Recording Note: ~ Perry first recorded this song in December, 1967,
at the same time as the original single for "The Father of Girls"
but neither of these "first" recordings were used on the final album.
Notes: ~ introduced by Richard Burton in the 1960 Broadway musical "Camelot" and in the 1967
Hollywood musical version it was sung by Richard Harris. A popular recording was made by
Johnny Mathis for Columbia Records. Mr. Como's 1968 recording of this song is impeccable as
were all of the songs recording during the album sessions for "Look to Your Heart".
