Perry's fifth and final album produced by Hugo and Luigi. It's also his final album with Mitchell Ayres as conductor. The Ray Charles Singers are present but not credited. Although he did record two singles following these sessions, it would be almost two years before recording his next RCA Victor album in Nashville, Tennessee, under the guiding hand of Chet Atkins.
