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.
