Update: These songs are great for just playing all of them one after the other...Perry has such a great voice that listening to 100 of his songs on Window Media Player is easier than any other recording artist that I know of. Plus the pacing and tempos of the songs are good for having in the background rather than a compilation of different artists trying to shatter glass...you just never get tired of these songs, or at least I haven't yet. There is one song that he sings with Betty Hutton (A Bushel and a Peck) that is pretty funny...one with, I think, The Andrew Sisters, that is sort of a comedic song (I Want To Go Home With You) that is also funny and not something that you would normally hear even on an station that plays his more popular tunes. It's kind of funny, though...I'll be in Bootcamp at the gym where they're playing urban rap like 'I'm going to New Jersey, Bitch' but I'm humming 'I want to go home, with you' to myself...so it does put you in another place and time...which, come to think of it, isn't all that bad....
When Perry Como sang, people listened. He could make millions of fans happy with his smooth baritone voice and there was true sincerity, honesty and passion in his voice when he sang. His songs could make the airwaves sizzle, too! This is obvious when you listen to the many tracks here that have him singing solo; and his duets with the likes of Betty Hutton and The Andrews Sisters are all beautiful to listen to over and over again. This is fine music by a true artist.
While the musical accompaniments always fit in well with Perry's vocals, he remains squarely front and center, only sharing the spotlight when he performed with other artists. And when he did perform with others, wow how good they sounded!
I highly recommend this CD set for any fan of Perry Como. It remains a fine addition and even essential to any collection someone would want of Perry's genius. The more casual fan may want to start with a single CD by Perry although his artistry is so special that even this makes a fine place to start--and it won't be the last music by Perry Como you get for your music library!
