Perry Como - It's Impossible 1970

RECORDING SESSIONSPerry Como ~ Mr. Saturday Night!
These recordings were completed on the fly while Perry was performing at the International Hotel in Las Vegas in response to his surprise hit "It's Impossible" recorded the previous May in New York. Don Costa was brought in for production of these sessions, excluding the title track of course, and recordings were made using the facilities at the hotel. These were Don Costa's first recordings with Perry and the project was quickly folded into sessions for Perry's follow-up album "I Think of You" which was recorded more conventionally in New York but still prior to final release of the "It's Impossible" album.
