Happy to find one in tact and like new.

This notes in the booklet are by noted music historian Colin Escott and are very informative, there are also a lot of great pictures of Perry throughout his career.
BondFan
One of the greatest moment on this set is the inclusion of Perry's last great song, "Wing Beneath my Wings," one of the best swan songs in American music.

This is a well engineered collection of songs dating from Perry's very first recording for the RCA Victor label in 1943 to his last in 1987. The recordings are presented chronologically and that's a plus. Unfortunately, Perry's recording career is by far too massive to be well represented within a three CD collection such as this. BMG could have devouted an entire set to his 1940s recordings alone not to mention almost every decade since! Releasing only one song from the five album collection produced by Hugo & Luigi in the early 60s, for example, is clearly a misrepresentation of Perry's recorded repertoire and his very successful Nashville collection is not clearly represented either. The real problem here is that BMG is trying to do too much with too little. Perry's success is probably more cross generational than even Sinatra and his many fans would have been better served had BMG attempted to focus in on this fact a little better. This is a collection well worth having but there are more recordings missing than there are present. BMG is attempting to kill a number of birds with one stone, if you'll pardon the cliche, but their shots are far too scattered. Anyone familiar with the Como repertoire knows full well that he deserves better than this from a label to which Mr. C. was loyal for almost 50 years. This is a good start but BMG needs to go back to the drawing table and begin to do the job thoroughly.

It's a tragedy that most people under forty don't even know who Perry Como is and few have ever been exposed to his music. This album will introduce to some marvelous music, sung by the inimitable Perry Como. As a fan of Perry, Sinatra and Bing Crosby, comparisons to their voices is inevitable. Perry modeled himself closely after Bing and the influence clearly shows. His voice wasn't as deep and his range wasn't as great, but his voice was more mellifluous and mellow, particularly as he aged.
All of Perry's great 40's and 50's hits are included here, as well as two stellar songs from the 70's, "And I Love You So" (my personal favorite) and "It's Impossible." Como injected so much pathos and emotion in both these songs. He learned how to use his vocal instrument more effectively as he got older. One of the greatest moment on this set is the inclusion of Perry's last great song, "Wing Beneath my Wings," one of the best swan songs in American music.
Perry Como's music is timeless and anyone of any age can enjoy it. No one else sang quite like him with that beautifully restrained, sweet, gentle style. I've seen Perry in concert several times and he was a beautiful man, inside and out. His voice mirrors his soul and this is a superb collection.

There are too many fine recordings of Perry Como to try to come up with the definitive three c.d. collection, but this comes as close as anyone can get. I just hope that R.C.A. goes to the effort of putting together part 2 of the Como collection. I'll surely be waiting.

This 3 CD collection from BMG was assembled in 1993 to celebrate Perry Como's 60th Year in Showbusiness and what would have been his 50th Anniversary with RCA Victor Records. As is often the case within such collections, there is particular focus on the 1940's and 1950's recordings. Probably the main point of interest is the 4 previously unreleased recordings which are featured on the compilation. They are: "You Are Never Far Away" (The full version of Perry's Closing Theme), "Try A Little Tenderness", "Unchained Melody" and "Bumming Around".

This collection is a good attempt, but is by no means definitive. As is often the case, many of Perry's exceptional output from the 1960's is overlooked; which is very much in error. This 3 CD set comes with a large accompanying booklet with information about Perry and his legacy. There are also many photos in the book, many of which have never been collected together in a booklet such as this before.

The sources of this collection are Release Master Tapes, with some 1st Generation Masters employed where selected unreleased tracks have been chosen and some tracks re-mixed to Stereo. The re-mixing and re-mastering is done to a very good standard.

With over 70 songs within the compilation, this 3 CD Set is definitely good value for money; if you can get it at the right price. It is a good step in the right direction, but is still a misrepresentation of Perry's recording career with RCA Victor which spanned from 1943 to 1987. The last thirty years of Perry's recording career in particular have brief attention within this set. There are few album tracks other than "title" songs and those released as singles. It is also important to remember that the charts do not represent the true measure of an artist's success.

When I read in the paper this week end that the incomparable Perry Como had passed away I had to write and tell you how much \ he will be missed. We own the "Yesterday,today and tomorrow" on cassette, and our entire family have been huge fans for many years. When one of the biography channels did a tribute to him some months back, my mother was thrilled. She doesnt see well,but she recognized his voice immediately! I plan to add several more recordings to her collection shortly. I remember watching his Christmas specials over the years,until he himself decided to retire when the powers that be decided NOT to do them live, and wanted to tape them in the summer. Not a really smart move. The last one we saw was Christmas in Ireland. Although,he preferred the ballads, we always got a kick out of the novelty songs,and of course who could forget "Manners the butler" on his television show always razzing him. Wonder if any of them will be available on video? We'll miss him and his music, but are glad he is at peace. And of course there are all those wonderful recordings!
